Another Day, Another Bomb

Death Total Hits 31 As 2nd Bomb Blast Rocks Volgograd

this time it was a bus, last time it was the train station

MOSCOW (AP)—Russian authorities ordered police to beef up security at train stations and other facilities across the country after a suicide bomber killed 14 people on a bus Monday in the southern city of Volgograd.

It was the second deadly attack in two days on the city that lies just 400 miles (650 kilometers) from the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Russian authorities said they believe the latest attack was the work of the same group that set off a deadly bomb Sunday at Volgograd’s main railway station.

Together, at least 31 people were killed in the two explosions, putting the city of 1 million on edge and highlighting the terrorist threat that Russia faces as it prepares to host February’s Winter Games in Sochi. While terrorists may find it hard to get into tightly guarded Olympic facilities, the bombings have shown they can hit civilian targets elsewhere in Russia with shocking ease.

And in 40 days the entire world will be visiting next door in Sochi for the Winter Olympics.

Friggin’ terrorists. Well duh ... pretty much by definition, they suck all the fun out of life. By sucking life out of life. Ah hell, they just plain suck.

Vladimir Markin, the spokesman for Russia’s main investigative agency, said Monday’s explosion involved a bomb similar to the one used in Sunday’s attack.

“That confirms the investigators’ version that the two terror attacks were linked,” Markin said in a statement.

Markin said a suicide bomber was responsible for the bus explosion, reversing an earlier statement that the blast was caused by a bomb left behind. At least 14 people were killed Monday and nearly 30 were wounded, according to public health officials. It was not clear if the dead included the bomber.

Seventeen people died in Sunday’s suicide bombing, including the bomber, authorities said.

No one has claimed responsibility for either bombing, but they came several months after Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov threatened new attacks against civilian targets in Russia, including the Olympics.

Volgograd, formerly called Stalingrad, also serves as an important symbol of Russian pride because of the historic World War II battle in which the Soviets turned the tide against the Nazis.

Volgograd is a city on the Volga River in a Russian province/state also called Volgograd. It is in south west Russia, east of Ukraine and the Black Sea, and just west of Khazakstan. That puts it north of Turkey, Georgia, and Chechnya, and just a boat ride north across the Caspian Sea from Tehran. In other words, it’s well beneath    the dread shadow of Mordor    the loving wings of Islam. Or darn close to them.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
