I think it has something to do with the plane crashes and the elections.

My first guess, as will be many peoples first guess, is Chechnya. They have been "battling" for most if not all of my life. My second guess, with recent news reports, would be Georgia, as the Georgian president has stated that "war with Russia is getting closer".

Now, I still say Chechnya, and I have a hunch they are probably funded by al Quaida. I have read things in the past (unfortunately, can't find a link at the moment) that showed there have been ties found between the Chechnan rebels and some of the middle to upper ranked Quaida members.

we've been speculating this ont he other thread
since last night...

coincidences or not?
Bare in mind that however strange the timing is, seemingly motiveless bomb attacks do happen in Moscow quite frerquently, usually gangland related, or political warfare played out on the streets...

but anyways.. its in the thread...
