Russia: Terror attack kills 35 at Moscow airport
Ap/YahooNews ^ | 1/23/10 | LYNN BERRY

Posted on 01/24/2011 9:02:45 AM PST by Kartographer

A spokeswoman for Moscow's busiest airport says 35 people have been killed by an explosion in its international arrivals hall.

Domodedovo Airport spokeswoman Yelena Galanova made the statement Monday on Russia's NTV television.

Other officials put the death toll at 31 and said about 130 people were injured in the explosion Monday afternoon. President Dmitry Medvedev said it looked like a terror attack and the state RIA Novosti news agency said the blast may have been set off by a suicide bomber.

So much vitriol! So much hate! We’re even causing violence on the other side of the globe!

This must be what Palin meant when she said she could see Russia from her porch.

I wonder if Dummy can jet in like Hendrix at Woodstock at some coordinated faux memorial, with Styrofoam pillars and flown in American liberal drips with the requisite fake slobering and wailing. It maybe good for 10+ poll points, I hope Axeldork and Fatty Gibbs don't let this goto waste. Plenty of opportunities for platitudes and messiah worship here. Think I am joking, I am sure Magic Negro's people were on this 12 seconds after this rolled on the wires. He is that pathetic and that ghoulish.

You know that Tina Fey on SNL while portraying Sarah Palin said “I can see Russia from my house.” Of course that incited this poor terrorist, thus it is Sarah’s fault, In addition the terroist was worried that when he flees to the US, Obamacare will not be available to treat him for free.

It can, and will happen here too.

Exactly. Herd masses of people in long lines going through security, makes an easy target. Same thing happened in 1972 at Lod (now David Ben Gurion) Airport, in Tel Aviv, when terrorists shot and killed 26.

Sure. First, you need to use HTML code, that is embedded in the web page. You should use the IMG SRC tag.

Attribute for < IMG ...> SRC = "text string" SRC tells where to get the picture that should be put on the page. SRC is the one required attribute for < IMG ...>. For example, suppose that the GIF file "../graphics/pumpkin.gif" is in the same directory as this page. We can place it in the page like this: SRC is a hypertext reference, like the < A HREF="..."> attribute. The reference can be relative (like the example above) or it can be a "fully qualified" reference. The most common use for fully qualified references is for the "access counter" images you see on some web pages. These counters work by calling an image file located on some other web server which specializes in access counters. That server looks at what web page is calling the image (that information is given in the URL), looks at the record for how many times that image has been called, and generates an image file with the numbers in the image. Suppose, for example, there is an access counter located at the server of our friends ninthwonder.com (there isn't really):

“You know that Tina Fey on SNL while portraying Sarah Palin said “I can see Russia from my house.” “

Sarah NEVER SAID THAT attributed quote, but the media morons hung on to it. She said that she could see Russia from the American side, which, if any hammer-ass has studied geography (instead of social studies or whatever the hell they call it) would know that she was ONE HUNDRED PERCENT RIGHT! Big difference from seeing it from her HOUSE.

Anyway, such a tragedy . . . my daughter and son-in-law flew out of that airport just two weeks ago . . . how sad!

It says in the article that one man was seen in a sort of daze pushing a luggage cart through the piles of bodies and severed limbs. Some of the people against the wall are probably dead.

“Turns out there is a reason,
Muslims are in season, ...”

Putin was overheard singing that to himself.

;-)

Russian Moslims have been acting out their Koranic demands to kill Christians for umpteen centuries. Christian Russians are tired of the continual Moslim attacks.

Somehow, I doubt Putin would lose any sleep if he had continue the age old Russian practice of direct reduction of the Moslim population.

Reuters is reporting that Muslim insurgents had vowed increased violence in the run-up to Russian elections.

35 innocent travelers bombed and shredded to death by shrapnel is not a cause for levity.

This is life and death.

Yes indeed..it is coming no doubt. All they need is one inside person to open the gate...just one. If the economic conditions continue here I can see someone being paid lots of money to do just that.

You're absolutely correct. The media destroyed Dan Quale over a potato(e)!

We should destroy liberals the same way. Our esteemed CIC repeated "corps(e)man" several times in one speech and that tells you a lot about the IGNORANCE of The BRILLIANT ONE (WON.)

BTW, where are 0b0z0's education records to see if he ever passed English as a second language?

Using Master Alinsky's manual against Conservatives, is something the Fifth Column Media excels at.

Thin-skinned Communists should be treated the same and that will laugh them out of control! Papa Alinsky

It makes one wonder how long Russia will remain silent about any intelligence that they might have about Obama’s history. If this was, in fact, carried out by Muslim insurgents, it seems to me that Russia would have an interest in releasing any information that they might have about Obama. Of course, it might be more useful for them to use it as blackmail against him, but I doubt that they trust him at all and they may believe that the stakes are high enough to try and expose him.

At Domodedovo, there's an area just as you're exiting the international arrivals hall where all of the relatives, hosts, and drivers wait for arriving travelers. It's quite a gauntlet of people you've got to negotiate when you leave. So, it's quite imaginable that this guy could target 100-200 people without entering into the secure area.

When I was at that airport in Moscow in 1988, there were two separate sections within the airport that didn’t interact. It had a great big wall separating both sections - the international section and the Soviet citizen section. Our section was calm & empty; the Soviet section was chaos & mayhem. Took a flight on Ae...roflot to Leningrad that day, which was a nightmare in itself...

You don’t even need to get near security. You can walk into any major airport in North America with numerous pieces of luggage and line up with hundreds of other people at the intitial check-in counter for your airline. No security check and usually no visible sign of any security officials. Just airline ticketing personnel and some porters. I’ve been in line at the Toronto airport when there would easily be 500 people lined up in an area 100 ft x 100 ft. It’s even worse lining up outside a major sporting event. Just think what a car bomb could do in front of the gates at the Meadowlands on game-day for the Giants.

The last report I read said it happened outside the exit from the baggage claim, which was full of taxi drivers, porters and family members waiting for passengers to come out with their luggage. Anywhere you create a queue you’re going to have a vulnerable target and there’s no way to entirely prevent that scenario. In the early years of the second Iraq war, suicide bombers frequently attacked Iraqis who were lined up outside the Green Zone looking for work. If you did an initial screening outside the aiport doors, then the next attack will take place at that point. The terrorists will always seek convenient targets.

I can see it coming: Big Sis will insist on body scans, gropings AND body cavity searches for everyone leaving home on the way to the airport for any reason.

Of course, if they would just adopt some Israeli screening techniques, they would be more effective.
