They suspect Black Widows. Awful.

Quote:

The ranks of the Shahidkas are filled mainly with 15-19 year old women. According to journalist Julia Jusik many of the women have been sold by their parents to be used as shahidkas, others have been kidnapped or tricked. Another group come from wahhabist families and are pressured to become shahidkas by their family. Only one out of ten act out of conviction or want revenge or want to die. Many have been prepared to the suicide by way of narcotics and rapes (making them ineligible for marriage). Several have been pregnant at the time. Mainly they are given no training at all in preparation for the suicides as no weapon skill is needed to strap on the explosives. Many don't even blow themselves up, but are blown up by remote control.

If I was OBama I would be on the phone to the Russian President and ask him if he needed any intelligence or military assistance on the matter. Then I would give him card blanche' and publicly back any efforts to bring the cowards who organized the act to justice. Enough is enough already.

it's disgusting how these groups send out these foolish lost souls and have them blow themselves up in the name of their cause. It's really awful those people just going to work or school and having this happen.
