Russia Metro Bombing Update

Some people began hyperventilating that in yesterday’s post I accused Russian President Putin of orchestrating yesterday’s explosion in the St. Petersburg subway. I of course did no such thing, and I even included a caveat IN THE TITLE ITSELF, as well as in the body of yesterday’s short post, but it doesn’t prevent some frothing dumbshits from running their mouths.

But there is a paranoid part of me that wonders if this hasn’t been perpetrated by their own government as a false flag operation! Yes, I hate the phrase “false flag.” Anytime a tragedy strikes in the United States, the conspiritards don their tin foil accoutrements and go on tirades about evil government engaging in “false flag” operations to misguide and draw attention away from whatever evil things said evil government does. Believe me, I’m not unaware of how it sounds.

Yes, this was complete conjecture on my part, based on some history. Yes, the government did stand to gain from such an attack, which is why I wondered in the first place. Other than distracting from the continuing anti-corruption protests and the resultant arrests, there’s also a continued push to shift focus from Russia’s actions in Ukraine, as well as its malign influence activities in other parts of Europe, and toward “We have common anti-terrorism goals! Look what these bloody bastards did to us!”

So in the interest of fairness (and sticking my fist down idiots’ throats), here’s an update.

Kyrgyzstan’s security service named the suspect as Akbarzhon Jalilov, who was born in the Kyrgyz city of Osh in 1995 and had obtained Russian citizenship.

His name was later confirmed by Russian investigators, who said he also planted a second bomb that did not explode.

In an earlier statement, the Russian state investigative committee said it had concluded the train bomb may have been detonated by a man whose remains were found in the carriage.

No group has said it was behind the bombing.

Also, the death toll now stands at 14, and the city is rightfully in mourning.

Because I’m paranoid

There was a terrorist attack in Russia today. Details are scant right now, but it looks like at least 10 people were killed in a subway explosion in St. Petersburg.

The head of Russia’s National Anti-Terrorist Committee said the blast hit the train between Sennaya Ploshchad and Tekhnologichesky Institut stations.

The committee said an explosive device was later found and made safe at another station, Ploshchad Vosstaniya.

President Vladimir Putin said all causes, including terrorism, were being investigated.

The entire system has been shut down, according to BBC, and this is the first attack ever on the St. Petersburg metro.

My heart aches for the people who died and their families, and I can’t imagine the horror of those who were in the vicinity!

But there is a paranoid part of me that wonders if this hasn’t been perpetrated by their own government as a false flag operation! Yes, I hate the phrase “false flag.” Anytime a tragedy strikes in the United States, the conspiritards don their tin foil accoutrements and go on tirades about evil government engaging in “false flag” operations to misguide and draw attention away from whatever evil things said evil government does. Believe me, I’m not unaware of how it sounds.

That said, I’m also not unaware of just how cunning the current Russian leadership is. In 1999 a blast destroyed a nine-story Moscow apartment building, killing dozens of people. The Russian government investigated the explosion as a terrorist act and claimed it was linked to Russia’s war with Islamic separatists. However, several journalists, witnesses, and the late Alexander Litvinenko (several of whom – coincidentally, I’m sure – have died under mysterious circumstances), claimed the tragedy was actually a false flag operation by the FSB (link is in Russian) to drum up popular support for a war with Chechnya, bolster the popularity of then-Prime Minister Putin, and eventually propel him to the presidency.

Given the anti-corruption protests taking place in Russia, and the arrest of opposition leader Alexei Navalnyy and more than 40 others, and Navalnyy’s increasingly resonating anti-corruption message, nothing would surprise me.

Again, I realize how it sounds, but when it comes to the current Russian leadership, nothing surprises me.

My most heartfelt condolences to the families of those who died in today’s blast. Regardless of who is responsible, it’s an awful tragedy.

And farm animals everywhere drew a sigh of relief

Times of Israel reports that Hamas’ explosives chief blew himself up a couple of days ago.

Hamas’s military wing, the Qassam Brigades, said in a statement posted to its official website that high-ranking field commander Muhammad Hemada Walid al-Quqa, 37, died Sunday morning. Other reports from Gaza said he was 44 years old.

According to the statement, Quqa was “preparing equipment” in the field when he was injured in an explosion.

According to Israel’s Channel 2 news, Quqa was the head of Hamas’s explosives unit and the Qassam Brigades said he had been involved in “manufacturing and assembling explosives,” among other activities.

I haven’t the slightest idea whether it’s true or not, but it’s a nice thought. Just thought you’d want some good news for your Tuesday morning.

ooops

Kuntzman Passes Full Retard, Goes Full Rutabaga

gershThe pusillanimous shit weasel who six months ago bruised his mangina and claimed PTSD after firing an AR-15 has surpassed several levels of stupid in his latest column in the New York Daily News.

In an effort to power wash the sand out of his labial folds after Hillary Clinton’s loss last month, paint himself to be less of a coward than he actually is, and apparently advocate retaliation for what he obviously believes to be Russian meddling in our election system that caused Queen Pantsuit to lose the election, (because it couldn’t possibly be that she was the world’s shittiest candidate, and no amount of lipstick could pretty up that pig), KUNTzman has decided to be a badass from the safety of his keyboard, while sipping his venti latte in his New York pad, claiming that the murder of Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov by a deranged, Islamist fuckbag was somehow justified.

As Vladimir Putin’s man in Turkey, Karlov was the public face of that murderous dictator’s war crimes around the globe and of oppression at home. Andrei Karlov is the human embodiment of policies that deployed bunker busters to kill babies, sent fighter planes on scorched earth bombing runs that destroyed a whole city, aided Syrian madman Bashar al-Assad in his campaign that has killed hundreds of thousands, and even ordered attacks on UN aid workers.

“Justice has been served,” KUNTzman claims.

Now, you know I have no love for Putin or for Russia. My personal opinion is that the Russians are waging asymmetric warfare on the West, and that their infringement on a sovereign nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, their fomenting of unrest in the former Soviet Republics, and their outright threats to a couple of Scandinavian nations should they decide it’s time to join the NATO alliance and to eastern European NATO members, as well as their possession of nuclear weapons, makes the Russians an existential threat to the West and to the United States. That’s in addition to their recent flirtations with fascism and outright oppression!

So, no… I’m not a Russia fan by any stretch.

That said, the mental acrobatics in which he engages to justify the murder of a diplomat in Turkey would make a Romanian gymnast give Gersh the finger!

First, he compares Putin to Hitler, immediately disqualifying himself from adult conversation.

After watching the death of Karlov, I could not help but remember the case of Ernst vom Rath, the Nazi ambassador to France, who was gunned down inside his consulate by a Jewish student in 1938.

Like Karlov, Rath was the public face of atrocity — in this case, Adolf Hitler’s genocide, anti-Semitism and coming global aggression.

hitlerThis irresponsible hysteria is far out of the realm of sanity, and anyone sane should point at KUNTzman and laugh hysterically at his inability to voice a coherent thought outside of “DERP! DERP! HITLER!”

While I’m not thrilled with Russia’s support of Syrian dictator Assad, but I also understand their concerns, including historic relationships between the leaders, the importance of Russian arms sales to Syria, and the defense of Russia’s only port in the Med, as well as concerns about jihadist fighters making their way back to Russia.

Whether we like it or not, and whether we understand it or not, looking at it from the Russians’ point of view, they do have legitimate interests there.

And let’s not forget the wholesale murder of millions and millions of people by Hitler that’s not even a close comparison to Putin’s involvement in Syria!

Hitler was an ideologue, and frankly not altogether sane. Putin is an opportunist, a (by some accounts) kleptomaniac, and hungry for power. Putin isn’t driven by racism or by a hatred of certain religions. He wants to restore Russia to world power status, and he wants to be the head of that world power. The motivations are vastly different, but apparently KUNTzman’s tiny, shriveled up little brain isn’t even capable of comprehending that much.

And finally, Russia’s capabilities and intent vastly differ from Nazi Germany. Only to a quivering dick wrinkle like KUNTzman would the comparison be even remotely valid!

That said, KUNTzman’s sniveling manifesto is typical of the inadequate, feeble, pajama-boy metrosexual, pseudo male with an inferiority complex. Given his quaking distress at firing a varmint rifle, it’s only logical that he would be overjoyed at another man doing the dirty work he wishes he could do himself as he furiously masturbates into his pink Hello Kitty towel, dreaming of co-opting others – whether government or terrorist – to use force as his surrogate in order to implement his dirty little tyrannical schemes.

Worse yet, KUNTzman is stupid. Oh, dear lord, KUNTzman is stupid! So stupid, that my eyes roll to the back of my head, and I need help retrieving them, after reading the turds smeared on bathroom walls that pass for his writing! So stupid, that one has to wonder how he ties his shoelaces without throttling himself with them. Soooooo dumb…

Karlov’s job in Turkey was to ease tensions over Russia’s atrocities in Syria and its incursions inside Turkey itself — meaning his job was to enable and normalize Vladimir Putin. Given that role, he wasn’t a diplomat, but a soldier, and his death is the same whether it came on a battlefield outside Aleppo or in an art gallery in Ankara. His killer was also a soldier — not a terrorist, mind you, but a soldier. Terrorists kill innocent people with trucks in Christmas markets or with planes in skyscrapers. Soldiers kill their fellow soldiers.

Diplomats are very specifically noncombatants. Killing a person whose job it is to ensure that war DOESN’T happen between two countries is certainly not the same as killing an adversary in battle.

If it was, the murder of Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi, Libya in 2012 would have been perfectly justifiable. By KUNTzman’s logic, the murder of U.S. military personnel at recruitment centers in Chattanooga, TN last year by a swine-humping terrorist – personnel who were not engaged in combat – was OK. And the murders of John Gordon Mein, Cleo Noel, Rodger Davies, Francis Meloy, and Adolph Dubs were also just fine, because they were Soldiers in KUNTzman’s warped logic.

But just as KUNTzman knows fuckall about weapons, he also knows exactly jack and shit about combat and the rules of war. Turkey and Russia are not at war. The terrorist who shot Karlov was not a Soldier. He was a rogue Turkish cop, whose act of murder was celebrated by ISIS, and who gave the ISIS index finger signal, while shouting “Allahu Akbar” after shooting the ambassador.  And he’s also not Syrian, as KUNTzman claims. He was born in Soke, a town in Turkey’s western Aydin province, so KUNTzman can’t possibly even justify this as combat, since the assailant wasn’t even from the country that’s supposedly engaged in a “war” with Russia. The assassination occurred at an art exhibit, ferfuckssake!

But it’s all the same to KUNTzman, because he has no comprehension of foreign or military policy!

In other words, he simply enjoys the murder of people he doesn’t like at the hands of others, because he’s too much of an oozing cunt to take the gun in his own hands and do it himself. He prefers others engage in violence on his behalf, and since in his empty mind, Russia = Hitler because somehow, according to the latest leftist narrative to excuse the C-Hag’s defeat, Putin caused Clinton to lose the election, it’s OK to murder a man whose entire mission was to ensure peaceful relations between Russia and Turkey.

KUNTzman doesn’t like war… unless it’s used to excuse acts of Muslim terrorist violence, in which case, “Justice has been served.”

It was a bad weekend (UPDATE – TERROR SUSPECT CAPTURED)

UPDATE: Looks like the police got the pig-fucking bastard suspected of blowing up bombs in New York and New Jersey this weekend.

A law enforcement official, who agreed to speak about the investigation only on the condition of anonymity, said they had conclusive evidence that Mr. Rahami was connected not just to the Manhattan explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood, but also to a bombing that took place earlier on Saturday on the Jersey Shore.


Not that I had a bad weekend. Mine was actually decent. I took a break from blogging and did other stuff, but apparently all hell broke loose on the east coast this weekend.

There was a bomb blast in Chelsea, with a second device found a few blocks away. The first blast injured 29 people. The second device, left in the middle of a residential block,  There was a bomb earlier that day in New Jersey. There was a suspicious device found at a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey early this morning, and when the bomb squad began messing with it, the damn thing blew up. The bombs were filled with shrapnel such as metal pieces and ball bearings. Sound familiar?

Investigators in New York determined that both bombs were made using pressure cookers that were filled with explosives and shrapnel, including ball bearings or metal BBs, and could be detonated using flip phones and Christmas lights, a law-enforcement official said. The devices are similar to those used in the Boston Marathon bombings.

The FBI put out this alert today.

The FBI put out this alert today.

And let’s not forget there was a stabbing attack in Minnesota, where people were wounded by a psychotic shit weasel screeching something about allah. Islamic State already claimed that frothing fucktard as their own.

Many posts on my social media feed waxed sarcastic about the perpetrators of these latest incidents, calling on the Amish Tea Party and those extremist Mennonites to step forward and claim responsibility. It would be amusing, if it wasn’t for the fact that it’s not. Once again, a certain demographic appears to be responsible for the attacks.

The sitting idiot in the NYC Mayor’s Mansion – Bill de Blasio – still refuses to label the attacks as terrorism, even though New York’s tyrannical fuckwit governor Cuomo has “bravely” uttered the “T” word, and then proceeded to shield de Blasio’s cowardice and refusal to do so with a “what he really meant to say was that there was no connection with international terrorism and that is correct. Right, Bill Buddy?” 

Well, gosh! As long as there’s no connection with INTERNATIONAL terrorism, I guess we’re OK. Morons.

Rahami was born in Afghanistan, according to the FBI. So he’s someone who came to this country and either became naturalized or received his citizenship when he was young after his parents had been. So there might very well be an international component to this incident.

I wrote about motivations a few months ago when I discussed directed vice inspired attacks. I said then, as I say now, that it’s the ISIS inspired attacks that worry me more.

Planned, coordinated attacks can be prevented, although obviously not even close to always. But it is hard to predict whom the IS social media campaigns have reached, whom they have converted, and what those feeble-minded, easily-influenced monkeys are planning to do once they pledge their heart and soul to IS. Thanks to the Internet IS reach is wide, and even the poorest, slum-dwelling derelict can have access to their message.

Being American citizens and taking inspiration It certainly doesn’t make lone wolf psycho attacks any less connected with international terrorism.

Once again, I note that any terrorist douche can get inspired by an ISIS page, website, or program. Any weak-minded ignoramus can make an immediate decision to pledge his soul to allah, ISIS, or the Great Pumpkin. Inspiration comes from many sources, and the inspired attacks are, for the most part, sloppy, unplanned, and hard to track. We have tools to track coordinated, planned attacks. There are electronic communications, suspicious financial transfers, suspicious travel… you name it. It doesn’t take much coordination to pick up a knife and go a’stabbin, or to grab a bunch of metal parts and a cooking implement. A psycho terrorist can get a wild hair up his ass in the shape of allah and go on a rampage without much planning.

The positive news is that there’s a lot of information that can be gleaned from the unexploded device. Fingerprints, DNA (maybe hair or sweat or something), the place where the cell phone to be used as a detonation device was purchased. It’s possible the place of purchase even has video of who bought the thing!

Another positive bit of news is that no one has died, although that certainly seems to have been the goal.

But expect more to come. I have no doubt these ostensibly “minor” attacks will keep on happening. It benefits ISIS, because they can claim attacks without cost or threat to their own personnel. And it benefits those in whose political interest it is to claim no connection to terrorism.

Because we won the War on Terror, right?
