In Russia, authorities broke up a gang of female suicide bombers who were about to go into action:
Russian security services have broken up what they described as a terrorist cell in a Muslim region of the country that was preparing female suicide bombers for attacks on major Russian cities, officials announced on Monday.
They said six women had been arrested who had already written “farewell letters” as they were being prepared for deployment. But the officials did not disclose whether attacks were imminent, or any other details about planning.
Two men were also arrested, including one said to have played a role in attacks by two female suicide bombers on two subway stations in Moscow in March, which killed 40 people.
This is a war that began in the 7th century and, while there have been periods of quiet, it has never really ended.

Alternative headline: “California congressman thinks his constituents are dumb, gets surprise.” At a town-hall meeting in Reseda, Representative Brad Sherman (D-Oligarchy) tried to deny knowing anything about the voter-intimidation suit against the New Black Panther Party or the Holder Justice Department’s dropping of a case it had won. As you’ll see, his constituents weren’t buying it:
This is another example that shows how the progressives and their “moderate” enablers in the Democratic Party can’t rely anymore on being shielded by the mainstream media’s slanted coverage or non-coverage. Thanks to the Internet, the MSM’s role as gatekeeper is over. Whether it’s via a cable network such as Fox, Center-Right news and opinion aggregators such as Pajamas Media or Real Clear Politics, the moderate to conservative blogosphere, or just individuals armed with video cameras and a YouTube account, there are too many holes in the Great Wall of the Liberal Media to keep alternative opinions at bay. As our elected representatives discovered during the health-care town halls last summer, their voters are informed and willing to ask questions – and they expect answers, not feigned ignorance or stonewalls or temper tantrums.
Much to their chagrin and the public’s benefit.
