Why would the Russians warn us of a terrorist attack like this? They butt into every conflict we get involved in always supplying the other side usually. So are we kind of sort of friends? Or do they just hate the Chechens more?

Probably goes back to the Cold War days. They didn't want to be accused of carrying out an attack they had nothing to do with.

Yer kiddin', right?  This is excellent PR for them.  They had the data, informed us, and we didn't do shit with it. The ultimate 'I told you so!'

When it comes to Jihadism, the US and Russia are on the same side.

Nations don't have friends, they have interests.

It's not in the Russians interest to stand by while we're attacked by terrorists.

Their opposition to our policy goals isn't motivated by animosity towards us, it's just a reflection of their interests, which do not always coincide with ours.

We should have suspected something when their message ended with, "Tag, you're it!"

I mostly agree.

Not really, the Russian view is the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim, at least the Muslim males anyway.  Like in Syria where they sell to Asaad and donate to the rebels.

We will neither vacate this conflict nor are we willing to do what would be necessary to end it.  I think the Russians got it right this time.  We should sell weapons to all sides and keep the Muslim on Muslim killing going as long as possible, but do nothing directly ourselves meaning NO AMERICAN BOOTS ON THE GROUND there.

They want us to tell them how much we know so they can reverse engineer our intel abilities.

Law and Order regardless if you are Merican or Commie is good.

Dagis are the new Chechens.  I love to see Dagis getting eliminated.

The Russians are not our friends.  If they did anything that appeared to help us it is because it harmed a bigger enemy than are we.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. We aren't really friends they just hate them more...

they hate the Chechens and we have a common enemy

They might like us.  

But that wouldn't mean we could trust them.  Ever.

Link Posted: 4/25/2013 4:26:54 PM EDT
Nah, they just wanted to point out how stupid we are.
Link Posted: 4/25/2013 4:27:57 PM EDT
Or they know they will need our help with the upcoming Olympics

I figure Putin was rubbing one out as he called the red phone to "chat" with Barry about the situation.

We allowed export under the GWoT to them to be used against the Chechens.

You can always count on the Russias to do whatever is in their best interest.

It is fact they have no love for muslims and they dont want us nosing around in Chechnya.

Wouldn't be shocked if they engineered this as a way to make us more responsive to their needs in terms of us giving them info/support in their war on people that are a pain in their ass.
But I'm cynical by nature

Damn beat me to it. I would not be surprised if this was the case. It makes the most sense to to me than any other theory.

Because they hate Chechen terrorists and we were essentially providing a safe harbor for them.

Russia, thank you for alerting us about the muslim terrorist.  Too bad out inept FBI, CIA and DHS did not stop him from killing and maiming innocent people.

Thank you again, but (smiling) you are still commies.

It was probably the Constitution and the rule of law that kept us from stopping them.
