Going Behind The Scenes Of Russia's Terrorist Blasts

Obama's murdering CIA, Saudi apostate mercenaries behind bombings


Two deadly bomb blasts in Russia on Sunday and Monday, just days ahead of New Year, have thrown once more into bold relief the scourge of terrorism in this country.

The two terrorist operations hit Russia’s southern city of Volgograd in a 24-hour interval. More than 30 people were reported dead and nearly 70 injured.

The blasts which struck near a cozy tourism center have set alarm bells ringing for Russian President Vladimir Putin and security forces.

In the wake of the attacks, Putin has ordered security to be tightened across the nation as well as extra police deployed on the streets of Volgograd.

"The abomination of the crime that was committed here in Volgograd needs no extra commentary," said Putin, adding, "No matter how the criminals may justify their actions, there is no justification for crimes committed against civilians, especially against women and children."

CIA/Saudis responsible for bombings
Following the emergence of separatist movements in North Caucasus in the early 1990s and specifically since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union up to the end of the century, Russia faced sporadic attacks by separatists in the autonomous republics of Dagestan and Chechnya.

Over the past 20 years, nearly all bombings carried out in subways or other public places in Russia have been attributed to the separatists. However, only in few cases, the perpetrators of such terrorist acts have been identified.

When Putin came to power in 2000, he sought to calm down Moscow by persuading a group of Chechens and Dagestanis to cooperate with the Russian government. In the meantime, he purged influential Chechen figures Dzhokhar Dudayev and Aslan Maskhadov in a bid to uproot separatist movements. These two policies proved to be successful to a great extent, but they failed to root out dissent for good. 

The recent bombings are significant from two aspects:

1.The bombings were carried out just days ahead of the upcoming Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. The attacks had been apparently planned to intimidate athletes who intend to vie in the games.

In July last year, Leader of the Chechen group Caucasus Emirate Doku Umarov released a video statement in which he threatened to unleash “maximum force” to disrupt the Sochi games.

2. Both bombings hit the city of Volgograd which is located outside North Caucasus and whose Muslim population is not extremist. Therefore, anti-Putin activists plan to push the crisis to the Volga River Muslim-dominated republics like Tatarstan and Bashkortostan which have experienced terrorist activities in recent years.

Unlike the Muslim-dominated autonomous republics in North Caucasus, the Volga River republics which are mainly populated by Muslims, have scarcely shown inclination for separatism in recent years.

Who are behind these terrorist operations?

Anti-Russia opposition groups in North Caucasus are likely to have carried out the bombings, but this possibility must not be ruled out that Saudi intelligence services – already cooperating with Takfiri and al-Qaeda militants in Syria – might have teamed up with Caucasian opposition to carry out these terrorist operations.

Saudi Arabia has been the main supporter of Salafi and extremist groups like al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Both of these terrorist groups are in touch with Caucasian militants fighting against the Syrian government. Al-Nusra and ISIL might have designed the Volgograd attacks in a bid to influence Russia’s Syria policy ahead of the January 22 peace conference on Syria in Switzerland. These terrorist acts could be interpreted as Saudi Arabia’s policy for ratcheting up pressure on the Russian government.

In December 2013, several terrorist operations were carried out in Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan. Saudi Arabia sent its intelligence chief Bandar bin Sultan to Moscow in order to cause division between Iran and Russia on Syria. After its failure, Riyadh, by financing terrorist operations, intends to ratchet up the costs for Moscow and Tehran for supporting President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.

The perpetrators of the two terrorist attacks in Russia, no matter their affiliation, will not realize their objectives and these bombings will only lead to the imposition of tighter security restrictions on ordinary people, particularly Muslims.

Moreover, President Putin will become more determined to move ahead with the policy he has adopted vis-à-vis Syria because the Russian government, which was from the outset worried about the empowerment of extremist groups in Syria and their cooperation with extremist Wahhabis in North Caucasus, is now further convinced to consider Syria as a national issue.

Another point is that carrying out blind terrorist operations and killing innocents who have had no role in Syria and North Caucasus will only cause more hatred against those who have not committed these acts, but are paying for being followers of the same religion as the perpetrators claim to be. Islam outlaws such savage acts under any pretext.

Terrorist attacks similar to what happened in Russia underscore the need for the identification of the behind-the-scene supporters of terrorists operating in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Central Asia and Caucasus. The region is unlikely to see calm as long as the supporters of terrorists are not confronted decisively.

We have already discussed in the first part of this analysis how the American geography dooms whoever controls the territory to being a global power, but there are a number of other outcomes that shape what that power will be like. The first and most critical is the impact of that geography on the American mindset.
