Putin Vows to Annihilate Terrorists

As much as I dislike this guy Putin, I can't say I disagree with his sentiment:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has vowed to fight "terrorists until their complete annihilation", in his first comment on two suicide attacks in the southern city of Volgograd.

The attacks, on Sunday and Monday, claimed a total of 34 lives.

Thousands of police are patrolling public transport and checking traffic in the city following the attacks, which injured some 60 people....

Investigators believe a male suicide attacker bombed the trolleybus and are studying fragments of his body in an effort to identify him. Police sources say the attack on the station may also have been the work of a male bomber.

Identical shrapnel was used in the bombs, according to Vladimir Markin, spokesman for Russia's Investigative Committee.

Analysts say the prime suspect for the attack is likely to be Doku Umarov, a fugitive Islamist militant leader from Chechnya.

Our prayers are with the victims.

Meanwhile, the semi-official website of Doku Umarov's group calls the suicide bombers "martyrs", without ever making an official claim that they were behind the two incidents of mass murder.

PS -- here's a bit of free advice to Alash Udugov: you are one dumb sonofabitch if you think the FSB is going to respect Canadian sovereignty and leave you alone. Friends of Udogov in Toronto would do well to pass this message along.

3 Putin ain't got the nads to say the problem is islam either. But in his case it's ignorance and fear.

When your population is composed of 14% muslims (and growing by leaps and bounds), versus maybe 1% in the US, you tend to bend over backwards with the "Religion of Peace" nonsense.

6 It makes me wonder if Putin has any anger toward his KGB forebearers who created the PLO et al, the spring whence terrorism as we know it flows. It's tough going trying to ride the tiger.

Pardon me, the irony seems to affected have my schadenfreude glands.

8 Putin is mad that he cant do to Chechnya that Stalin did to Ukraine in the 1930's, surround the place, burn the fields, then let them starve to death for the next 1 to 3 years. 1930's death toll 3 million plus. With the news media today he cant get away with it
