      What you think, is this really terrorist attack?I think that it is a little weird that every time that there are going to take place elections in Russia there is one or more terrorism act.Maybe there are some "big" political games rigged behind all this?Russian web media say that governments were pre-alerted about this attack but no actions were taken.Do you believe that a country like Russia is not capable to prevent a terrorist enter the airport area?There are so many policemen in the area,there are metal detectors at every entrance of the Domodedovo.So how did the terrorist pass 7 pounds of TNT through all that security?Maybe he had some kind of assistance from the "inside"?
