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.

Wonder if he was Jewish.

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.

I salute your bravery and truth telling.

Just another ploy by the money masters to drive the market up for another day.

Yea? So was Gabrielle Giffords dipsh!t.

Must have been Amish, it's always the Amish!

Mennonites are a little looser on the technology restrictions.

And so it begins, 'unforeseen events'.

Quick!  Confiscate all guns inside the USA.  Clearly this is bullish for US public policy.

Now the Russians can have a Dept of Motherland Security.

And the people will embrace it.

Russian markets dropping? Stupid Russian algo-bots...cant they scan the headline keywords 'markets' 'explode' sky-high' and ramp up equities? 

High Plains Drifter's picture

what the hell?  you mean they are not groping, fondling and xray scanning at ruski airports. gads?

Chertoff now on his way to Moscow.

People explode in the US everyday at being fondled and groped by the TSA and nobody gets killed.

Oh regional Indian's picture

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.

Empathy for the bereaved. Callous times we live in.

Silly man. He thought he would immediately be in paradise surrounded by hot babes. Guess what? They lied.  Too late now.

Azannoth's picture

And how do you know ? Did the Fairy godmother told you ?

nonclaim's picture

Do you have enough courage to invoke him to show you where he is now?

What's the risk? None of this exists after all... so use all your inner strength and ask for him. But if you do and before you do, ask for protection also just in case it all exists...

Azannoth's picture

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 ?

nonclaim's picture

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.

Little did the bomber know that his 40 virgins were a bunch of fat, grizzled middle aged dudes who'd been "saving themselves" for just the right guy.

Brain is Trash, you might want to google Tob Shebbe Goyim Harog.

It's all the Hebrew any Gentile will ever need to know.

mentioned several times in Qur'an...

God has promised the believers,... gardens through which running waters flow, therein to abide, and goodly dwellings in gardens of perpetual bliss...

I hope God got the memo to make sure these running waters are at least 500' from the crops. Even He wouldn't want the EPA on His back.

They obviously are a member of the International Teaparty.

TSA looking to expand it's.....reach.

It went off when the Airport groper grabbed the package.

So much for the K.G.B....

Just another excuse for Big Sis to spread the fascist police state here.  Airports first, then subways, malls.  Don't forget the drones and make sure you rat out your fellow Americans at Walmart (of all places!).  Suppression or heavy taxation of ammo sales coming.

Rogerwilco's picture

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.

TheBillMan's picture

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.

Boxed Merlot's picture

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

Just think about it. Before we get to go into Wally world, we have to be groped and fondled by some fat black chick security officer.

This suicide bomber is a maniac and moron. He should have bombed an oilfield after telling his relatives to go long oil futures.

BigJim's picture

Hmm. Not bad.

But how do you know he didn't advise his relatives to short the airline, instead?

Assuming it was a he, of course - what with equal-opportunity and all.

eigenvalue's picture

Are you sure people can short sell aeroplane stocks in Russia?

BigJim's picture

I must confess: I have no knowledge of the matter either way :-)

Cash_is_Trash's picture

Who thinks it was Al-Qaeda?

ArrestBobRubin's picture

Many fewer than who think it was Al-CIAda there genius.

jmac2013's picture

Probably planned by Bin-laden, Saddam Hussein, and Hitler from a cave in Pakistan.  Hopefully, Assange can provide us the real dope there. 

Or, it could have been the axis of evil which is Santa Claus, the Incredible Hulk and Jesus, hiding out in N. Korea.

Quick - how do you say Teabager in Russian?

John McCloy's picture

  So in all seriousness this is likely Chechen Rebels right?

Vashta Nerada's picture

Yes. Members of the religion of peace.

ArrestBobRubin's picture

Well now, that is stupid.

"Chechen Rebels" = CIA/Mossad

I mean where ya been, in Temple?

Vashta Nerada's picture

Don't let the facts get in the way, huh?

Anti-semitic moron.

ArrestBobRubin's picture

Now what facts would those be monkey-boy?
