The world is once again aghast at the carnage brought on by a simple, bomb-toting coward. But should this really come as a shock?
Take a look at a little timeline of attacks in Russia.
I counted 23 attacks on this list that was so nicely put together by the Associated Press. I counted 20 of them since 9/11.
We all know that Russia is very instrumental in helping Iran develop nuclear technology. We all know that Russia has been supportive of anti-Semitic forces in the Middle East. One would think that it would be enough to garner some favor in the jihadist world that includes Hezbollah, Hamas, and countries that sponsor such messengers of hatred and vile influence.
But it hasn't. Has it?
Until the civilized world can come to terms with the fact that radical jihadists (and the states that sponsor them) have no friends (other than other blood-thirsty killers who use violence to advance their warped and twisted theology), no nation will be safe.
Today's attack on innocent and defenseless people goes far to prove this claim, quite well. It only goes to show there are enemy forces who care nothing for any other culture, no matter how much that culture's government kisses the feet, rings, and asses of evil men.
