Follow Russian Airport Explosion News Live On Sky News

Tyler Durden's picture


Minutes ago a suicide bomber exploded at Moscow's main domestic airport Domodedovo, killing at least 20, and according to some reports, up to 70 people, forcing a security crunch at the country's two other major airports: Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo. The Russian stock market is sharply lower following the news, in a glaring reminder of that now forgotten event of bad news being bad news. Interfax news also reports that in the aftermath of the blast, the Police is checking subways and other places of congestion of people. Elsewhere, an Etihad airlines jet was escorted with fighter jets to Stansted airport. Follow all the developments via Sky News after the jump below.

No way. They don't blow themselves up, although many have explosives training.  They want your kids and mine to go fight wars in the Middle East for Israel, not risk their lives.

But Jared Loughner is.

Ugh! Sounds like another move in the pincer. 

Sad reality. Bombs are the "major" shakers of our times. That master illusionist and Iluminist, HG Wells said it way back when that the "social" dialouge and fabric would be full of explosive and specifically bomb-astic memes in this time.

Where is the net pressure heading to? You can map it and it looks like eastern europe again. yet another flash-point.

I find it unfathomable how easily people can out of hand dissmiss other religions but blindly belive everything in 'their' religion, so I ask again How do You Know ?

Well, "42" comes to mind but, in short, by the inherent concept (to humans) of good and bad.

In general good is rewarded and bad is punished; or should be, so we feel [except if it us to be punished, of course]. That concept is common to all religions and transcends their set of dogmas on how you are rewarded or punished. Now that's too simple, so all religions also allow for bad to distort your senses so good is bad and bad is good; again, that is so regardless of how it is defined by dogma. [Who didn't do something awesome, only to find out how stupid it was sometime later?...]

But this is not a compared religion thesis... back to the event, for a moment forget all religions and its dogmas and just picture it for what it is, causes and consequences of human action, and you'll feel what is good and bad.

That said, I agree with you that "blindly believe everything" isn't good and add that blindly believing nothing isn't either. The problem is not in absolutely believing (or not) but in being blind...

To finish, nothing I say will convince you of what I know or not. You will have to seek for what *you* want to know... or not.

The TSA has been pushing to expand their scope and jurisdiction for years. In 2008 they were asking for authority to conduct searches outside the terminal gate areas at major airports, and they are now involved with CBP and ICE in those highway shakedowns that are happening within 100 miles of the Mexican and Canadian borders. All they need now is authorization to carry weapons and we'll have our own little "brown shirt" army to keep us safe.

Don't forget the open border to our south where all the drugs are pouring in from.  BTW, have you been brushing up on the Chinese national anthem?   I hear they are looking to replace that old, worn out song we used to use (something about freedom and liberty) particularly after Lang Lang's stirring rendition of the Motherland song in front of our cowtowing president the other night.  I understand that this was meant to be a humiliation of America for the domestic Chinese audience since they were told to tune in several hours in advance.  I'm sure our bootlicker president and his cronies clapped the loudest since they hate our country more than anyone else.

Lang Lang's stirring rendition of the Motherland song...


While our executive's hatred is evident and displayed frequently, this particular event may have been more along the lines of ignorance and apathy.  But hey, we paid the piper with Timmy Bills and Bernake Bucks so why would we expect the tune to be something to our liking?  They're learning from the best and one can hope they've had their own Jeckyl Island event prior to their currency going live.  We'll soon see if their "knock offs" will be as good as the original.


On a slightly different note, one thing that does sorrow me is the over emphasis of the US military prowess and the seemingly absent reporting, knowledge and/or remembrance of beneficial and generous  activities of the American people .  I'm reminded of Archie Bunker' sit-com daughter's pleas for help in feeding starving people, and while laughed at and ridiculed by many at the time, is still indicative of a heritage we should take pride in. imho

Well sure, a true national leader like Vlad Putin who has the good sense and moral fiber to lock up Russia's top Jewish  "Oligarchs" like Khodorkovsy and then throws away the key is definitely gonna attract some cowardly attacks from the Usual Suspects.

Earlier case in point was the Beslan massacre, where Israeli proxies murdered dozens of little Russian SCHOOLCHILDREN. Evidently Beslan was meant as a warning to Putin not hold Russia's Jewish crime kingpins to any real form of justice. See, they'd like to enjoy the same level of immunity in Russia as they've arranged here in the controlled West. They're really pissed at Vlad Putin because until he came along, their whoreboys had been "in charge", and had allowed Russia's great wealth of natural and energy resource holdings to fall into the hands of Russia's Jewish Mafia kingpins for pennies on the dollar.

Ah yes, the marvelous benefits of their criminal brand of "democracy" had finally come to Mother Russia. Oh, let the people rejoice! 

Thing is, it didn't work. Vlad didn't get intimidated then, and this most recent outbreak of terror by proxie won't do a damn thing except to piss off a more nimble and mentally superior opponent.

Russia and Vlad will have the last laugh here. Guaranteed. And Khodorkovsky, you lowlife scumbag, do enjoy your life sentance. You ain't never gonna see the light of day again.

As a God-damned vampire, that should work out really nicely for you.

much better to have Flash with its LSOs, which the vast majority of users aren't even aware of as they (legally) vacuum info from your computer


Quick LSO (Flash Cookie) facts:

  1.     Never expire
  2.     Can store up to 100 KB of information compared to a text cookie’s 4 KB.
  3.     Internet browsers are not aware of those cookies.
  4.     LSO’s usually cannot be removed by browsers.
  5.     Using Flash they can access and store highly specific personal and technical information (system, user name, files,…).
  6.     Can send the stored information to the appropriate server, without user’s permission.
  7.     Flash applications do not need to be visible.
  8.     There is no easy way to tell which flash-cookie sites are tracking you.
  9.     Shared folders allow cross-browser tracking – LSO’s work in every flash-enabled application
  10.     No user-friendly way to manage LSO’s, in fact it’s incredible cumbersome.
  11.     Many domains and tracking companies make extensive use of flash-cookies
