Moscow Metro Bombings

Today the Moscow metro was bombed at two different stations. Lubyanka was one stop away from my main station at Chistie Prudy and I would pass through there often to get to shopping, bars, my barber at Red Square. The other station was Park Kultura where my wife would change trains to get to her job.

You cannot imagine how packed those trains get and how dependent Moscow is on its metro system. You really can get anywhere on those trains and they make sure that they run smoothly as possible. The Russians will have a real problem if this is not an isolated incident. But the Russians don't mess around with terrorists or have any qualms about enhanced interigation techniques. From their point of view they can't. They are vulnerable and they must be harsh to protect themselves.
