Following the earlier terrorist attack on Moscow's Domodedovo airport, which has left more than 30 people dead, videos of the attack have started coming in. Caution: not for the faint of heart.

It may sound cold, but should you find yourself in this situation, gather any living family members and leave immediately.  A second bomb may be waiting for the first responders to arrive, or a second plane could be inbound, etc.

We need to make nails and ball bearings a restricted item where only persons with a licence and have passed a background check can buy them.  If nails and bearings were appropriately regulated this never would have happened.

I wonder if they just mean the rolling elements (i.e., the "balls") as opposed complete ball bearings...

I think rolling elements for industrial size ball bearings can easily be the size of large marbles...even golf balls...I think...

...and they are usually made of steel...

One of them moving at high speed can do a lot of damage.

I worked on nuclear bombs in a former life. Kept them clean and painted. You know: "a clean bomb is a happy bomb". Anyway, one of them had a timer that could be set up to several days after it was dropped. That way it would take out the first responders and rescuers that had shown up. It had a nick name, of course. "Spectator Dissipator". Who says military folks don't have a sense of humer?

>A technology will be developed by us in the future where every human on this planet will get the power to potentially wipe out the whole human race in an instant'  

This could be one explanation for the "Great Filter".

Why hasn't the galaxy been completely colonized by a technologically advanced civilization? An extraterrestial species that evolved, say only 2%, faster than us (i.e. at our level of technology 100 million years ago) should have colonized it by now.

Either the Great Filter is in our past, meaning that life is extremely unlikely to develop on its own and probably no one else is in our galaxy.

Or, the Great Filter is in our future: every civilization is overwhelmingly likely to annihilate itself before colonizing other stars.

(Or there might be another explanation, like we are intentionally quarantined or being observed without us knowing.)

Do you have evidence that it hasn't been?

Would an advanced civilization necessarily need to be apparent in the same dimension as us?

Perhaps the advance is simply dimensional, which is to say perhaps the great filter is simply a perceptual one between dimensions?

True story: I recently had reason to travel a great distance and a road trip (my prefered form of travel) was basically out of the question.  So I had to fly.  TSA, unsurprisingly, was primarily a joke on both ends.  None of my fears were realized: not once did I even see a whole body scanner, though I did see old ladies being felt up.

But that's not the story.  This story is about a joint I had thrown in my laptop bag earlier in the week that I forgot to remember.  TSA bitch has need to search through my bag due to some highly dangerous and lethal screwdriver bits I had with a multitool.  She finds the joint, looks at it, then puts it back in the bag.  She tells me to hold on and goes and fetches an older TSA guy.  She opens the pocket in the bag with the joint for him to see it.  He looks at it, then tries to figure out how he's going to take it out without actually touching it.  I finally break the tension and explain that it's "just tobacco".  The older gentleman looks at me square in the eye and asks, "Sir, do you roll your own cigarettes?"  To which I calmly replied, "I do."  He tells the younger TSA goon that everything is fine.  She seems befuddled, confused, disappointed almost.  One last check of my bag through the scanner finds another set of tool bits that I forgot to remember.  TSA gives me the option to check my bag.  Sorry, not worth the $25 luggage fee, and certainly not worth another chance for TSA to find the rest of my weed secreted away in various pockets, and in particular the very dirty weed pipe in my carry-on bag.

Naw, keep the bits, TSA.  And go fuck yourselves.  I'ma go enjoy this "cigarette".

Then you just pile people up at the doors instead of inside. There is no way to prevent this kind of thing in thousands of places, except one. You look for terrorists instead of bombs and weapons. I do not know why we cannot get that through our thick TSA-government skulls. I will bet you doughnuts to dollars there were relatively obvious suspects roaming around. Given an Israeli trained eye they might have been spotted. Instead we do the "herd the cattle" things everywhere putting ourselves into long lines and delays looking for nail clippers and 6oz clear liquids.

It will be interesting to see who did this as the usual suspects come to mind.

“Terrorists” and hooligans is how all dictators describe dissident uprisings. Then they bring in their trained demonstrators and all the paraphernalia of crowd control—the police, the weapons, the tanks…

While peoples today struggle for survival, food and peace, The U.S., the U.K. and Israel continue with the summary executions, food and medical sanctions, torture, sudden disappearance of neighbors, and destruction of homes and homelands.

As Robert Grenier, former CIA counter-terrorism official, said after reading “The Palestinian Papers”: The movement for a two-state project “since the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993, insisted upon by Israelis and Americans alike, has been for the Palestinians to establish full control over radical elements who might abjure violence in pursuit of Palestinian aims, and to demonstrate the willingness and ability to identify, track down, and arrest or kill anyone involved in terrorism—even as broadly defined to include those who, in other times and places, would be seen as engaged in legitimate armed resistance to oppression.”

The point is, “terrorism” is in the eye of the beholder.  Israel and the U.S. want to identify freedom fighters as terrorists…  Here are examples of political “terrorism” engaged in by superpowers:

1) Diplomat: US to End Lebanon Aid if Hezbollah Forms Govt | Antiwar.com | Jan. 23, 2011

A top, though unnamed US diplomat has warned that the Obama Administration will revoke all aid to the Lebanese government if, as seems to be increasingly likely, the March 8 coalition manages to form a government…

The US had been vigorously backing the March 14 bloc and outgoing Prime Minister Saad Hariri, to the extent that Vice President Biden made a high profile state visit just to campaign for the Hariri faction ahead of the last election. They narrowly won, but their unity government collapsed just over a week ago.

2) False, incendiary claims such as made by GDE on Zero Hedge today #898328: “Historically, Arabs stole the Middle East lands to Jews and Christians and that land you call Paslestine was only occupated by a bunch of Bedouins and Jews living as dhimmis. There was nothing there before Israel.”

The Balfour Declaration, a letter in 1917 from British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild, made public the British support of a Jewish homeland in Palestine after years of negotiation…leading to the Palestine Mandate in 1922.  

From Margaret MacMillan’s book, “Paris 1919” :

“The Balfour Declaration had promised such protection for what it called ‘the existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine,’ a curious formulation when Palestinian Arabs, most of them Muslim but including some Christians, made up about four-fifths of a population of 700,000.  It also reflected a tendency on the part of both the world’s statesmen and Zionist leaders to see Palestine as somehow empty. ‘If the Zionists do not go there,’ said Sir Mark Sykes firmly, ‘some one will, nature abhors a vacuum.’  A British Zionist is supposed to have coined the phrase ‘The land without people—for the people without land.’”

Balfour, in 1925, on his first visit to Palestine since the Jews were established there, “was touched by the reception he received throughout Palestine from Jews but failed to notice the Arabs in mourning and the shops closed in protest.  His private secretary destroyed the hundreds of angry telegrams he received from Arabs before he could see them.  When he and his party moved on to Syria to do some sight seeing, the French authorities mounted a guard around him, much to his annoyance.  In Damascus, his hotel was surrounded by an excited crowd of 6000 Arabs. As the paving stones started to fly, and the French cavalry fired back, Balfour watched bemused.  A young Arab attached to his party tried to explain why there was such opposition to Zionism.  Balfour merely replied that he found the results of his experiment, ‘Extraordinarily interesting.'

“He sailed back to Europe on the Sphinx.

Today, the aftermath.

Islamic terrorism from the Northern provinces?

They said they'd bring it to the heartland of Russia.

'They'.  Whatever.  Get off the Islamophobic train, dude.  Try this on for size instead.  Last week Medvedev says Russia recognizes Palestine and, coincidentally, this week, this takes place.  Perhaps Mossad is at it again.

The entire charade associated with flying, the herding of sheep into a metal cylinder flying too fast and too high..... just plain nuts.

And now this... grope grope, herd herd, constant noise, airports are full of harried people. Harried and hurried.

No thank you. Roads and water till I design my own flyer.

It's not just the TSA who get their rocks off on hot chicks. Here's a real life example.

I was walking out of the county court building the other day (filing for eviction of deadbeat tenants) and they have a nice setup of about 12 cops and two scanning machines (for bags and coats), who were idling - nobody coming in.

When you walk out, you go past the checkpoint and towards anyone entering. So, I'm walking past and I see a very nice looking woman coming forward. A cop shouts out, "we've got a situation." At first, I wondered what the hell he was talking about, then I got it. He was sending code to his leering buddies that a nice looking woman was headed their way.

And we're paying these 12 a-holes about $70K per year to protect judges?

I wonder what would happen if a real "situation" took place. These jack-asses would probably be leaning over each other to see what's coming while somebody else takes their heads off.

Pretty pathetic, IMO. BTW: I hate courts, law, cops, officials, judges, mayors, etc. All overpaid douche-bags.

What's wrong for you is right for somebody else.

 

Didn't the US invade Iraq and Afghanistan because some idiot in a cave played with planes? Over 1000.000 Iraqi citizens died for those 6000 death people in the towers.

Anybody say: "out of proportion"?

 

It was right enough for you Americans to do so. You even insulted the Europeans because they didn't wanted to kill all those innocent citizens over there who had nothing to do with it.

Not here, in the the US all authorities would immediately evacuate. The blast location would be cordoned off for blocks. DHS and other clowns would set up a mobile command/media post at one quarter mile. State control media would report that we not jump to conclusions...but "this may be the act of a teapartier". After clearance from the EPA  twelve hours later, a battery operated (clean) remote controlled robot would be rolled in for a gander to look for suspects.

Latest reports had the bomb as a multi-1000lb. one loaded in baggage handling equipment and parked next to the terminal. Large enough to cave in walls and windows and with the ball bearings, explains the bodies lying in rows and stacked up. Explosive force and shrapnel brought them down were they were lined up. Not sure I'm ever going to fly again between TSA and crap like this. And then as I'm looking up some news sources for it all I see are people killing cops, coworkers, Walmart shoppers,and senators plastered all over the pages(4 cops just here in FL, 4 wounded in CA, etc. etc.). Think the masses are starting to lose it?

The device is thought to have contained the equivalent of 7kg (15lb) of TNT.

"The explosion occurred in the international arrivals hall in a public area, to which people who are not passengers have free access," airport spokeswoman Yelena Galanova told Interfax news agency.

According to eyewitnesses quoted by Russian TV's Vesti news programme, before detonating the explosives the bomber shouted: "I'll kill you all!"

Anyone who'd tell ya would be junked. But their identity isn't too hard to figure out on your own. Their home state was literally founded on terror, by terrorists who continue to employ State Terror as foreign policy to this day. Hello

Domodedovo

They've got longstanding experience and expertise blowing innocent people to pieces for their own gain, while setting up others to take the blame in the process.

False Flag terror as a science and go-to foreign policy device. S'wonderful. S'marvelous.
