Russia’s President Vladimir Putin vowed vengeance after Moscow on Tuesday confirmed that a bomb attack brought down a passenger jet over Egypt last month, killing all 224 people on board.
“It is not the first time that Russia confronts barbarous terrorist crimes,” Putin said in a meeting late Monday with his security chiefs.
“The murder of our people in Sinai is among the bloodiest crimes in terms of victims. We will not wipe away the tears from our soul and hearts. This will stay with us forever but will not stop us finding and punishing the criminals,” he said in comments released Tuesday.
“We will search for them anywhere they might hide. We will find them in any part of the world and punish them,” he said, calling the attack “one of the bloodiest crimes.”
Russia’s security chief, Alexander Bortnikov, told Putin that the passenger jet was brought down over the Sinai Peninsula by a bomb with a force equivalent to one kilo of TNT.
In response to the attack, Putin pledged to step up airstrikes in Syria, where Moscow is conducting a bombing campaign it says is targeting the Islamic State and other “terrorist” groups.
“The combat work of our aviation in Syria must not only be continued. It must be intensified so that the criminals understand that vengeance is inevitable,” Putin said.
President Putin promised to find those responsible for the Russian passenger plane crash in Egypt in any part of the world and exact revenge.
“It is not the first time Russia has faced these barbaric terrorist crimes, which often come without any visible reasons, internal or external, as was the case with terrorist act in Volgograd back in 2013. We haven't forgotten anything or anyone,” said the President.
The President also added that the perpetrators of this attack will certainly be punished.
“We should pursue them without any statute of limitations and should know all of them by name. We will be looking for them wherever they would try to hide. We will find them in any part of the world and punish them,” he stressed.
On Tuesday Russia confirmed that the Airbus A321 with 224 people on board was brought down by a terrorist explosive device.
Russia is now offering $50mln for information on those who might have been involved in the terrorist attack on the A321.
The effect of the Paris terror attack upon the debate over Syrian refugees in the United States was swift and dramatic.
American “values” are not a suicide pact, and the concerns about security from Obama’s reckless refugee policy are not illogical. First and foremost, the Obama talking point about “vetting” these refugees is the greatest insult to the intelligence of American voters since the promise that illegal aliens who receive amnesty will pay back taxes, plus a fine for breaking U.S. immigration law.
Governors across the country are publicly rejecting President Obama’s plan to relocate Syrian refugees.
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback did the same. Brownbeck said:
It is imperative that we take action where the White House has not. I have therefore directed all state agencies, departments, boards or commissions not to participate or assist in the relocation of Syrian refugees to Kansas. It is unfortunate that we must take this step to protect the safety of Kansans, but the federal government cannot guarantee that Syrian refugees coming to America would not be part of a terrorist organization seeking to harm our citizens.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said:
Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said he is opposed as well. Bryant said in a statement:
I’m currently working with the Mississippi Department of Public Safety and Mississippi Office of Homeland Security to determine the current status of any Syrian refugees that may be brought to our state in the near future. I will do everything humanly possible to stop any plans from the Obama administration to put Syrian refugees in Mississippi. The policy of bringing these individuals into the country is not only misguided, it is extremely dangerous. I’ll be notifying President Obama of my decision today to resist this potential action.
Idaho’s Gov. Butch Otter said on Monday: “While I understand that immigration and refugee resettlement are authorized under federal law, I am duty-bound to do whatever I can to protect the people of Idaho from harm.”
Maine Gov. Paul LePage said that it’s irresponsible for the United States to accept refugees. “Remember 9/11? I think some people came through Maine, and they did a lot of damage in New York,” said LePage “I think we’ve got to be very diligent, very on top of this issue.”
Despite everything that just happened in France, on Sunday the Obama administration made it clear that it still plans to resettle at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in communities all over the United States within the next year. Thanks to Obama, the U.S. has already been absorbing thousands of refugees from the Middle East each year, and as you will see below, just last week administration officials expressed a desire to “increase and accelerate” that process. So far, the list of states that have received the most refugees includes Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. But by the time it is all said and done, it is likely that Syrian refugees will end up in virtually every major city in the United States. The U.S. State Department has established “refugee processing centers” in 48 different states, and you can view the entire list right here. Considering what just took place in Paris, is this really a good idea?
In recent months, the massive influx of refugees into Europe has created a complete and utter nightmare. Large numbers of refugees have gotten “lost”, violent crime is out of control in many of the areas where these refugees have been resettled, and nations that were once extremely peaceful such as Norway and Sweden are now dealing with an epidemic of rape. For much, much more on the horror that Europe is now facing, please check out this excellent video.
You would think that what happened on Friday would make Obama rethink things, but that has not happened.
Over the weekend, the Obama administration insisted that plans to resettle Syrian refugees all over America have not changed, and as I mentioned above, just last week officials were expressing a desire “to increase and accelerate the number of Syrian refugees” being resettled inside this country…
We have become so politically correct that we cannot even see what we are doing to ourselves. Most of these “refugees” from Syria are strong young men, and they are creating chaos wherever they go in Europe.
The same thing will happen here, and Obama must realize this.
The following map comes from Weasel Zippers, and it shows where Syrian refugees have already been resettled…
And of course this is just part of a rising trend of Islamic immigration into this nation. The following numbers come from a recent article by Daniel Horowitz…
- Numbers: We have admitted approximately 1.6 million immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries from 2001-2013, double the average rate prior to 9/11.
- Recent Trend: Immigration from Muslim countries is the fastest growing segment of our annual admissions. The countries with the highest percentage increase since 2010 have all been predominantly Muslim countries. Saudi Arabia (up 93 percent); Bangladesh up 37 percent); Iraq (up 36 percent); Egypt (up 25 percent); Pakistan, India, and Ethiopia (all up 24 percent); Nigeria and Ghana (both up 21 percent)
- Trajectory: According to Pew Research, the Muslim population is expected to triple by 2050 – from 2.77 million to 8.1 million. It is expected to double in just 15 years and surpass the United State’s Jewish population by 2040.
So Britain is going to rely on the pitifully ineffective rabble at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), who is evidently screening Syrian Muslim refugees arriving in England this week. England's Home Secretary has assured Brits that all is well, since they are taking in "refugees" direct from camps, and the UNHCR does impeccable screening of the "refugees." In other words, "everything that can be done is being done."
No, not everything. There is always another option, and that is to suspend or outright cancel any movement of "refugees" into the UK. But, evidently, this is not one of the options they are considering.
And why? Because, like liberals in the U.S., liberals in Europe #CareMoreThanWeDo, and will be as brainless as they must to prove it, even to the point of having their own citizens murdered.
As I said yesterday in my podcast, this is who these idiot officials are, and ours are no different. They are reactionary. We on the right predict that so-and-so will happen. It happens – the left is surprised and reacts with some temporary or faux fix. This is exactly the case here. We predicted – we guaranteed (at least, I did) that allowing the country to be overrun with Muslims who have zero interest in assimilation would end in disaster.
But neither politicians in Europe nor politicians in the United States listen to us. It is, once again, symbolism over substance and common sense. So when someone like actor Rob Lowe tweets out, "oh, NOW France closes its borders. #Hollande," the response of the mindless Twitter drones should be predictable – and it was. They called him a racist and said he was "distasteful," "disgusting," and "inhumane." The liberal press, predictably, echoed those sentiments. How is stating the obvious disgusting and inhumane? Maybe it's a microaggression.
Meanwhile, stateside, Obama talking heads were busy defending their leader's asinine statement that ISIS was not expanding its territory or influence and was, in fact, contained, thanks to Obama. Boy did that come back to bite him in the butt rather quickly. There's nothing worse than being proven a fool almost immediately. He should have learned from his global warming compatriots that if you're going to make idiotic statements, you have to stretch out the timeline – like we will suffer the consequences in 20, 30, 50, or 100 years. That way, when you're wrong, most people who heard you say it will be dead by then.
And then there is this, which I also predicted in my podcast as one of the likely scenarios to come out the Paris bombing. In Germany, things may be heating up, as hundreds of thousands of Muslim "refugees" have already found their way in. One of the scenarios is what I call neo-nationalism – the natural backlash to Merkel's liberal immigration policy
And the same can be said in this country, as the Obama administration attempts to mimic the same idiotic immigration policies.
