RE: St. Petersburg attack
"To forgive the terrorists is up to God, but to send them to see God is my duty!" I'm not surprised ISIS didn't rush to claim the attack, I bet they've probably sh*t themselves at least as badly as the russian civilians.

Also, most suicide bombings and other attacks happen in the middle east, but they hardly ever reach western headlines.

The end of the world only hurts those who have something to lose.

Yes - that unexploded device was in an actual station. And that station was unrelated to the route of the train which had the device that exploded. So, it was certainly a coordinated attack.

Luckily, the carnage was isolated to the one train. I think if one of the devices had exploded in a station, a lot more people would have been killed & injured.

Well, although these events are willful harming and killing of random people peacefully going about their lives. They are more fear mongering than anything.
They get all the media attention, but in the scheme of things, they don't impact much on any strategic military or infrastructure target. They kill a handful of people, much less than people which are killed on roads or in muggings etc.
In the big scheme of things these would be negligible were it not for the over reaction of people becoming anti Muslim or protectionist.

For the most part, the average joe is safe on the street, in public transport and in nightclubs. These occurances are rare and unlikely to hit you. We don't need to panic, but of course our governments need to continue monitoring and surveying and hunting these people down.

RE: St. Petersburg attack
My bet is on Chechnya independantist. They were the one responsible for almost all large scale attacks on Russian soil.

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.

Putin seems quite adept at killing people.

One might almost assume he's had practice. Dodgy

There have been a lot of demonstrations lately against Pooh-Tin, and his ministers who live very lavishly. This could be a "Trump-ed Up" excuse to "clamp down" on all that.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Do you think that more personal vigilance and awareness of one's surroundings on the part of the general public would help stop more terrorist attacks from occurring? For example, do you think attackers may rely on people being too focused on their personal electronic devices, such as laptops, cell phones, music devices, etc., so that they can set up, coordinate, and carry out their attack?

Unless it's an oil producing county so then just be careful about suggesting a move away from the PetroDollar. Then you'll be OK.

Sounds like a smart quip until you remember that the vast majority of the victims of Muslim terrorism are Muslims themselves, and plenty live in countries which have little or no oil.

I'm no expert, but I doubt the average civilian could spot a terrorist.

Yabut. That isn't terrorism. That's just quranic difference of opinion.
