    The killed police officer stopped the suicide bomber at the enterence and didn’t let her enter the waiting room at the train station.

    Police identified the suicide bomber as a Dagestan national Oksana Aslanova. The woman received a special training alongside Naida Asiyalova, which carried out a similar attack in Volgograd in late October. Aslanova was the wife of a militant leader, which was eliminated by Russian security forces.

  2. Saudis Pledge $3 Billion to Lebanese Army

    Lebanese President Michel Sleiman announced the largest grant provided in Lebanon’s history.

    Saudi Arabia has pledged $3 billion for the Lebanese army to buy equipment from France, Lebanese President Michel Sleiman announced on Sunday.

    The kingdom “decided to provide generous assistance to Lebanon in the form of $3 billion for the Lebanese army to strengthen its capabilities,” Sleiman said, adding that it was the largest grant of assistance provided in Lebanon’s history.

    French President Francois Hollande, on a visit to Saudi Arabia, said his country would “meet” any requests from Lebanon.

    “I am in touch with President Sleiman… If requests are addressed to us, we will meet them,” Hollande told reporters answering a question about Sleiman’s announcement that came as the French leader arrived in Riyadh for talks with King Abdullah.

    The aid pledge comes amid mounting sectarian tension in Lebanon related to the war in neighbouring Syria.

    Lebanon’s powerful Shiite Hezbollah movement is fighting alongside President Bashar al-Assad’s forces against an uprising that many Lebanese Sunnis support.

    Saudi Arabia is a leading backer of the rebels battling Assad’s regime, which has relied on strong support from Shiite Iran.

    Sleiman’s announcement comes two days after a bombing that targeted a leading critic of Hezbollah and the Syrian regime, though the Saudi aid pledge did not appear to be directly related.

    He said the money would be used to buy weapons from France, pointing to the “historical ties that link it to Lebanon and the depth of the military cooperation between the two countries”.

    Sleiman did not specify what weapons would be purchased.

  4. #1 Several years ago I wrote about a nurse at the VA I go to, she was born in Germany after the war and she told me about her mother who grew up in Nazi Germany, when Obama was elected the mother told her daughter what items to buy and store including gem stones and small bars of gold and silver. She also told the daughter that if she came home and found the mother passed out on the bed with a pill bottle beside her to not try and revive her and not to call 911 until it wtas clear the mother was dead, Mom had lived through one fascist dictatorship and said she was too old to experience another one.

    #2 The left deifies their leaders (witness the worship of Lenin, Marx, Kennedy, Clinton and Obama) they are doing all they can to see that another of their deities is elected, if this has to include lying about history and covering up crimes they will do this willingly.
