Eight people were killed this week in a bus bombing in the southern Russian town of Togliatti. Here is what Russian bloggers are saying about it.

    When Palestinians terrorists blew up Israeli buses (and restaurants, and shopping malls, and weddings) and killed innocent people, I heard a lot of Russians call them "freedom fighters." BBC won't even call suicide bombers terrorists, insisting on calling them militants instead. In fact the only time I ever knew BBC to use the word "terrorist" and not attribute it to someone else was just after Alan Johnston was "kidnapped." So what about the Russian victims, their families, their friends, their countrymen? SCREW 'EM! No doubt about it, they are European through and through, every bit as qualified to join the EU as Serbia. But wait, the US government will issue the required usual pro forma statement just like always and just like everyone else "regretting the loss of innocent life and the suffering of the victims and their loved ones." I only hope it's on a standard form and they forget to change the date from the last time they needed to use it.

    Putin and the Russians don't seem very concerned about Iran acquiring an atom bomb. What makes them think their cities like Moscow or St. Petersburg are any less likely to be targets of Islamofascists than New York City, Washington DC, or London when these weapons pass into the hands of the terrorists? They have as much hatred for Russia as for America or Britain. What will the Russians do then, blame it on America and launch World War III ending all life on earth? Stupid, stupid, stupid and mean and vindictive as can be. Yes, every bit the Europeans without a shadow of a doubt.
