Russia Attacked

So what do you think?  Islamists?

An explosion ripped through the international arrivals hall at Moscow’s busiest airport on Monday, killing 31 people and wounding about 130, officials said. The Russian president called it a terror attack.

The state RIA Novosti news agency, citing law enforcement sources, said the mid-afternoon explosion at Domodedovo Airport may have been caused by a suicide bomber.

Current reports indicate a suicide bomb with shrapnel.  We’ll see who ends up eating the polonium sushi in response,

One thing to note: this sort of thing may not have been stopped by even our elaborate security procedures.  There are plenty of crowded places someone could just walk up and set off a bomb like his.  It emphasizes, yet again, that if a terrorist bring a bomb to an airport, you’ve already failed.  Intelligence and vigilance are our main defenses.
