Up Close And Personal: Volgograd Suicide Bomber Moment Of Detonation Caught On Tape

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Just before New Year's Day, as we previously reported, Russia's city of Volgograd, located in close proximity to Sochi where the Winter Olympics begin in a few weeks, was rocked by two powerful suicide bombings, the first of which took place in its train station - one of Russia's largest. At least 14 people were killed. Yesterday, footage released by Lifenews.ru shows the suicide bomber as he approaches the train station, and then explodes as he crosses the metal detectors. Up close and personal, not for the faint of heart.

Sad to say . . . but as more and more of the victimized peoples of the world come to the conclusion that they have nothling left to lose, in striking out at the symbols of the powerful and wealthy . . . the more of this kind of thing you will see happen.

no shit. the world is full of useful idiots, duped into seving very evil ends while thinking they are doing the opposite.   for example, any U.S. serviceman in Afighanistan still naive enough to think that he or she is "defending America"...  or "freedom"....     at least the mind controlled jihadist gets offered 72 virgins.

Its OK, I was trying to grind through the premise that jooos are running a nation of Sunnis, which also happens to be a monarchy (which apparently involves a king & a royal family of distant joooish cousins) and where Sharia Law is the law of the land...I would suppose from Israel, a nation operating under a parlimentary system, which has universal sufferage and some sort of election thingy goin on...probably all run by Diebold though...lol.

So, in the end...Diebold runs the entire world!...or sumpin ;-)

18-19 year old kids... that is a harsh judgement on a group of people traditionally used as cannon fodder because of their inherent trust of authorities and real world naivete.

I would like to give some credit to the older pros.  Certainly a few of them stay in so they can try to simply keep the young guys alive.

That second bit is speculation.  The first is not.

They don't really have a say in the matter. Don't call them naive, call the people in Washington who think they own the world naive. Call on all elites in the entire world who think they own this world and control your destiny naive.

The naive one is the person who doesn't understand this is a global effort from elites in every country to create a 1 world government.

Get ready for false messiahs to appear. Ministers in high offices in the Canadian government already have admitted that they believe aliens exist in the form that would get most people called conspiracy theorists.

Check it our for yourself.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2535698/Aliens-walk-theyre-refus...

If I were you, I would not myopically focus on military servicemen.... they are just doing their job and following orders. Instead look at the hand that is inside the pocket still and figure out what the world's elites are doing.

I've already figured it out. Their global organization is Freemasonry and they meet in multiple groups like Club of Rome and Club of Budapest.

These orgs are designed to give credibility from the scientific community to the insane "NEW AGE" religion where all is relative and to embrace a global movement on climate change. This is all a deliberate design and manufactured to create a 1 world government. It's been a long time in the making and they will try. 

It's not hard to see behind the layers of the onion. It just takes time.

Thank you Edward Bernays, Wall Street and Plato for proving how weak one can become when they have nothing to do with accountability.

Meanwhile, back in the USSA... Cops get away with murder.  Literally.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=GDGGsq8dsWo

The real action starts around 17' mark of the 33' clip.

In Nazi Germany or Communist USSR this happened behind closed doors – far from the public eyes and ears.

In USSA, this happens in plain sight of the 'Brave and the Free'.

“Roll the MFing guillotines!”, you say?  In USSA the sheeple don’t roll guillotines.  They just roll over.

Journalist David Satter, denied a visa to report from Russia, writes in The Wall Street Journal that recent terrorist bombings in Russia may be modeled after the 1999 apartment bombings that served to solidify Vladimir Putin’s control of the country and justify the war against the former Soviet republic of Chechnya. The 1999 bombings, Satter notes, were blamed on Islamic terrorists, but were proven to be the work of agents of the Federal Security Service, or FSB, a successor to the old KGB.

Regarding the December terror bombings in Volgograd, Satter says “The outlines of the story follow a pattern in Russia of Islamists being freed from [police] custody shortly before committing terrorist acts.” He says these episodes “merit close scrutiny by the press.”

But Satter, an adviser to Radio Liberty hoping to help investigate these matters, will not be allowed to do so in Russia.

In regard to the previous October 22 attack on a Volgograd city bus, Satter writes that “The crime was quickly blamed on a female suicide bomber from Dagestan, Naida Asiyalova, and her common-law husband, Dmitri Sokolov, a Russian convert to Islam who allegedly outfitted Asiyalova with the bomb. Sokolov, however, had been in police custody, as the authorities themselves acknowledged, until shortly before the attack.”

The suggestion is that these bombings, like those in 1999, are being carried out with the approval, or even at the direction of, the FSB, for the benefit of the Kremlin, in order to justify “greater repression” by the Putin regime. Putin himself is a former Soviet KGB officer.

Indeed, the Russian government has reacted to the bombings by embracing new “anti-terrorism” legislation that includes measures to give security personnel the right to stop and search, and to “monitor” the Internet and social media.

Do you mean "we" as in the "we are all human" we?  I disagree.

Islamic martyrdom bombings have been happening for thirty years, and you are late to the party — the Hezbollah "Party Of God" party.

Two suicide killers from the Iranian Shia Muslim terrorist front Hezbollah, killed 305 humans in Beirut on October 23, 1983.  Sunni Muslims of Al-Qaeda have been suicide killing since the mid-nineties.

Be aware that questioning the Qur'anic justification for Muslims to kill the unbelievers is Racist and Islamophobic.

Islam — Obama says respect it.

Several months ago when Obie was makin' kisses to Iran, Israel was sputtering mad, Syria was all akimbo with who gassed whom, the Saudis and Vlad the Bad (God, I love that handle for him) met and were discussing the pipeline situation behind the scenes (both the pipeline and the meeting).  As well as who's supporting whom between Syria, Lebanon, Iran and the rest of the miserable fucking rat holes over there .  (Yes, I can call them that through experience.  Miserable fucking rat holes) 
And evidently had Vlad the Bad given the Saudis what they wanted... whatever the hell it was... the King (yes, the King of SA, the head potentate) told Vlad that they could guarantee there'd be no terrorist activity at Sochi because they were the Power that Be behind the Chechnyaian rebels (Same group a la Boston, and don't forget the Saudi national spirited out of Boston by the USofA just after the bombing...sheeeeit)
And so it goes

The supposed "deal" was the Saudi Royals (scum) wanted Putin to sell out Pres Assad and Syria. The Saudi Al Qeada proxy rebels have been getting their arses kicked by the Syrian Army.  These Al Qeada rebels are being also backed by El See Eye A, Mi6, RINOs and Dems in Congress, AIPAC, etc.   These rebels are only good at killing innocent Syrians especially Christians.

This Saudi "deal" would allow the Saudi proxies Al Qeada and their allies who are not Muslims (USA-getting muslim, UK-almost muslim & Israel) to take over and run a pipeline to the Mediterrean for the Saudis to export nat gas and oil. 

In return, Putin would get a chance to sell Russian oil.  (WTF! Putin and Russia own almost all the pipelines going everywhere)  This was such a BS offer by the Saudis that they had to also threaten the Russians/Sochi with Chechen terrorism.   Putin told Prince Bandhar Bush to go f**k himself.

Putin had been warned by Prince Bandar of these attacks.  Let's see if Putin extracts a price from Bandar:

 

Most critically, the Saudi prince told Putin he could ensure that no terrorist attacks would disrupt the Sochi Olympics.

“I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea next year,” said Bandar. “The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”

At the time, Bandar claimed to be speaking not only for the Saudi monarchy, but also for its chief ally, the United States.

Putin rejected the proposed deal, declaring Saudi support for the Russian Islamists unacceptable. He reportedly vowed that Russia would strike a “massive military blow” against terrorist training camps. Some analysts interpreted the remark as a threat of military action against Saudi Arabia itself.

The Uyghurs in western China are another group the US has been using (directly and indirectly).   One of the problems with 'terrorists' - the US used BinLaden et al to train Uyghurs and others for use against China and others for use against the 'Stans' and Russia. But then once you've declared BinLaden and friends to be 'enemies' (instead of the 'allies' they had been in the war in Afghanistan against the Soviets...... things get 'complicated'  God only knows who the US has been 'involved' with under the 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' meme (that worked SO well with Islamic extremists)

I posit that sometimes it's better just to STAY THE HELL AWAY and DON'T GET INVOLVED

Our Founding Fathers were wise to advise against 'foreign entanglerments'

The state will never ever deliver 100% security. More security, more scanners, more spying etc is not a long term solution! Those who are upset enough to want to kill themselves to make a statement or make changes will always find ways to adapt.

What exactly is it that these people want and why can their demands not be met? Who makes that decision and who benefits from obviously surpressing these people to the point where they blow themselves up? There is a solution here but it is not going to make either Mr. Putin nor his oligarchs any richer.

Send our very own TSA over there to help out.
And the FBI to investigate.
And the DoJ to prosecute
And the H&HS to study the sociology and economics of the people to discern just what drives them to act out such as this
And the Fed to pave the streets with gold
That they raided from the NYFRB
And Commerce Dept to create some enterprise zones so the people there have something to look forward to
And ATF to tax the alcohol and take away the bombs
And an ExecOrder outlawing people being mean to people

"More security, more scanners, more spying etc is not a long term solution!"

Exactly right.  The TSA here in the USA is just eyewash.  All it does is move the target from the airplane to the terminal area before entering security (just as happened in the Russian RR station).  Lots of people herded together waiting to be groped by blue-uniformed perverts is a tempting target for some derranged maniac(s).

So it begs a larger question:  the PTB obviously know this is all ineffective, so what's the real motivation?  Could be to placate the nervous nellies (those who would surrender liberty for temporary security), or it could be a way to make money from placating the nervous nellies, or it could be all just a rationalization and cover for spying on and controlling the real threats to their fascist utopia....you and me.

Security is big business. The contract for the body scanners was a huge deal. Without threat, there wouldn't have been a need for those. TSA employs alot of people who probably couldn't find work elsewhere. They will be of good use when ordinary Americans get hauled off and processed before entering FEMA camps. Takes a certain type of individual to handle masses of people, look at them, touch them and process them. Eventually that person will have the mindset of a poultry worker.

There were no terrorists attacks after 9/11 on American soil. But there were no attacks before 9/11 either. How much propaganda was created surrounding the event, the endless wars and two stock market crashes.

Stay low. The beast is still growing. Too early and too hard to stop the beast when it's feasting.

As someone said, 9/11 is THE litmus test.  It galvanized people into two camps.  One camp is comprised of mainly women and gay men.  They are the ones who crave security.  The other camp is comprised of mainly men and gay women who favor liberty.  There are some of us who don't fall into either camp- they are called libertarians.

They don't claim to know exactly how 9/11 came to pass, but they know the "official story" is bunk.  They really don't much give a rat's ass what people do in private.  The key word being, private.

They get really pissed though, if you ask them to sanction (read: subsidize) shit they don't agree with.

Can you blame them?  They're not asking for anything but to be left alone.  They don't want your "approval" but more importantly, they don't want a piece of anyone's labor to finance what they do want- freedom.

The probability that a behemoth security apparatus can actually improve survivabilty for most, is to libertarians about as likely as a tornado passing through a trailer park, and leaving in its wake a pristine dirigible.

Sure, Vlad. The Kremlin is not corrupt. Maybe it only seeks to protect Russians now but in the past it had no problems sending Russians into the Gulag. Nobody knows how the Russian Kremlin will treat Russian people tomorrow but if I were you, I'd be scared shitless unless you're part of the ruling class.

Kremlin is KGB as much as DC is CIA. There's no difference. My point was this. The fact that the Russians have released the videos just confirms that the Kremlin is taking notes from the Washington playbook. Americans were inundated with coverage on Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon ad nauseum. The whole world for that matter. Now the Kremlin is following in the footsteps.

Who cares what you or I think?  It's all one big sack of lies and bullshit what the elite puts us through!

The world needs a war is the conviction of the elites. Maybe the Indo / Paki incident with a juicy Twitter scandal and the suspected murder of a prominent Indian politician's wife will be the Crown Prince of Austria event of this time to start the war.

Pretty much. The Chechens certainly aren't improving their situation or cause through attacks on civilians and children. If they're stupid enough to select and prefer civilian targets, they're likely not smart enough to source explosive material. They're more likely a pawn in someone other group's game.

Qui Bono?

The Hashashin (Assasins) planned for months in advance, trained themselves up in Hasan-i Sabbah's mountain bulwark in Alamut (Iran) and when the time came, hit the target with knives.  They would then, extraordinarily, drop the knife and allow themselves to be taken alive.  The courage, insanity and faith required to do that is certainly beyond my comprehension.

I say, you don't hit innocents.  Other than that, have at it.  The meek inherit nothing.

From an analysis perspective, the Chechen Islamist rebels seem to not have a problem with going after civilian targets, children, etc. They took over a theater in 2002, and the infamous Beslan school hostage crisis cleared that up if there were any doubts. Targeting and attacking civilians certainly doesn't make them any more endeared by the international public. They still have to be getting the explosives from somewhere. That requires money and supply chains. It's certainly a strong possibility that the Saudis were involved with target selection and supplying the explosives.

It's a sick fucking world.

Journalist David Satter, denied a visa to report from Russia, writes in The Wall Street Journal that recent terrorist bombings in Russia may be modeled after the 1999 apartment bombings that served to solidify Vladimir Putin’s control of the country and justify the war against the former Soviet republic of Chechnya. The 1999 bombings, Satter notes, were blamed on Islamic terrorists, but were proven to be the work of agents of the Federal Security Service, or FSB, a successor to the old KGB.

Regarding the December terror bombings in Volgograd, Satter says “The outlines of the story follow a pattern in Russia of Islamists being freed from [police] custody shortly before committing terrorist acts.” He says these episodes “merit close scrutiny by the press.”

But Satter, an adviser to Radio Liberty hoping to help investigate these matters, will not be allowed to do so in Russia.

In regard to the previous October 22 attack on a Volgograd city bus, Satter writes that “The crime was quickly blamed on a female suicide bomber from Dagestan, Naida Asiyalova, and her common-law husband, Dmitri Sokolov, a Russian convert to Islam who allegedly outfitted Asiyalova with the bomb. Sokolov, however, had been in police custody, as the authorities themselves acknowledged, until shortly before the attack.”

The suggestion is that these bombings, like those in 1999, are being carried out with the approval, or even at the direction of, the FSB, for the benefit of the Kremlin, in order to justify “greater repression” by the Putin regime. Putin himself is a former Soviet KGB officer.

Indeed, the Russian government has reacted to the bombings by embracing new “anti-terrorism” legislation that includes measures to give security personnel the right to stop and search, and to “monitor” the Internet and social media.

Something that absolutely astounds me in all the years we've been witnessing Terror LLC manufacture events out of Washington D.C., London, Tel Aviv and Riyadh is the sheer abundance or if you will "chorus line" of the willing hopeless to take orders from somebody else by strapping bombs to their chest and blowing themselves up for "God".

You would think that the majority of these lifeless robotic morons would eventually catch up with the likes of Global Research, Voltairenet, Zerohedge among so many others and just say it's time to quit this job I finally "get it".  I know where the money is coming from to pay for all of this shit and it won't be me who does the next assignment.  This doesn't even include the people in the cities I just mentioned that have no conscience or souls themselves that facilitate these horrible crimes and ask for more 15 years later.

I can't believe what I'm about to say but if Prince Bandar, "The Benjamin" and John Kerry try to pull off some "fireworks" before, during and after the opening and closing ceremonies in Russia during the Sochi Winter Games I would be personally proud to help the Russian Embassy with some logisitics in the blowback department!

And well deserved I might add if something like this should go down.
