  • Podcast: Moscow Airport Bombing

    America can learn a lesson from the recent Moscow bombing: Just because we’re fortunate enough to live in America, where suicide bombings thankfully don’t happen – and God-willing won’t ever happen – we need to remain vigilant and ramp up our national security. After a couple recent close calls, particularly from terrorists Faisal Shahzad (Times Square bomber) and Omar Farouk Abdulmutallab (Christmas Day bomber), securing our country is still of utmost importance.

    But what does this suicide bombing mean for Russia? What will likely retaliation be? And what will it mean for its relations with the middle east?

    Having written over 500 articles, 25 book chapters, and after decades of experience researching the Soviet Union and Middle East, Heritage Expert Ariel Cohen answers these important questions and more surrounding the bombing in a brand new podcast. Listen to the full interview, here.

      Where were you when 9/11 went off? Whether they use bombs or other means of destruction, the results are the same. We have to be prepared for all acts of terror, the mass murderers are just that, the cover-ups for them, and giving them the protections of our legal systems has to cease.

      They are domestic enemies. They commit mass murder in public places, in this country. What did you think the attack was on Robert Kennedy, on President Kennedy, on the Schools, at Virginia Tech, On President Reagan, and on the Congress Woman Gifford and her party in Arizona?

      These attackers are all cold blooded killers, what their frame of mind at the time they commit these acts of terrorism and war are irrelevant. We are at war with them because they are inside this country waging war on us.

      When our Political Leadership wakes up to these truths, and starts, taking the long overdue actions they have been avoiding all these years, these things can be stopped, or at least dried up to a trickle.
