Excellent quote, good point.
Must be that overheated rhetoric in Russia....
and maybe Russian foreign politics towards their neighbors.
well, I am wondering why that happened....there is no tragedy without reason....Let's see what investigators find out.
Now, now. Don't pick up the negative habits of the Republicans. I am hoping the people that think we are being too careful about safety don't happen to miss this story.
Is there something wrong with you?
there is a "reply" button for a reason.
Really, Captain Obvious?
"The Russian government is confirming the death toll of 31 people and says 130 people were injured in the Moscow airport blast."
Sometimes I hate being right. That's about a factor of 10. Strange how that is.
HEre we go again...the religion of "Peace" at it again.
I bet Russia will find some way to blame Georgia and go to war again
suggest to speak with Osetians people re Russia – Georgia war...
@Jacob, I agree, Georgia is small and weak. Or maybe, they will go to war with Estonia. They can not pick on someone their own size.
Jacob, please inform yourself before you make ANY statements.
You people are too stupid to recognize sarcasm when you see it.
guarantee it was a muslim! such a peaceful religion!!!!
@bricott4, I think this is a message from Chechnya that they want to be an indepence state or a revenge.
@Jack – 94% of Chechens (chechya people) are sunni muslim, so you're not helping the cause.
@Jimbo – So I guess Nathan Bedford Forest, Tim McVeigh, Eric Rudolph and Thomas Blanton were all Muslim?
Hey, you successfully singled out the 1% of exceptions. good job.
some teenagers just don't think seriously, pity.
Okay !! In the meantime, why don't you scamper off to one of your tea-bag parties.
And why don't you scamper out from between Rachel Medows thighes! Liberals live life with blinders on instead of facing reality head on.
Liberals, unlike you, do not condone the mass killing of an entire race just because they aren't Christian.
Blame it on the muslims all u want but it was more than likely the CIA trying to make people think it was muslims to lure more countries into this pointless war. The war they are using to scare people into thinking it's ok to pass laws like the patriot act and slowly take away our freedom and rights.
Rick, you're a conspiracy idiot. It was most likely Chechens, who frequently carry out these types of bombings at airportsa and on passenger aircraft.
Rick you are a moron
Someone is awake
Wow...Can I borrow your tinfoil hat?
it is easy to squabble and fight here on this site among us , it is easy to perceive and point fingers at someone or some group for what had happen ...it is a sad lost of human life , on a personal level my condolences to those that have lost their dear ones , it is truly a sad moment . when will we all learn to get along? .. does the gun or the bomb answer all our needs ..why cannot those people who like to lay in the shades blinded by religion and money get the real picture? you do harm to one person or a group of people now ..the next will also come for, if not you! your new and next generations ..it is a vicious cycle . we as citizens of this world should try to hinder our drawbacks , its our efforts now no matter which religion or race you belong too please just try to think like a responsible human being first do not these people you bombed or shoot have families too ? unless your hearts are too black then what can change you? death ? death will come you know it ... but it is how you have lived your live that makes it all human ...this is not the medieval age anymore ..and to all religious fanatics/leaders please do not encourage people to kill in the name of your religion/denomination etc... if you are men of god you must understand more .. i do not think god like to blow up his own creations life is not a video game !
Your a paranoid idiot, go back to living in the woods and writing manifestoes no one will read.
There you idiots go with more conspiracy theories.
What will it take for you to realize that things appear as they seem? That it was a f***ing terrorist attack and not some CIA conspiracy to establish some new world order! Get a grip!
