CHEVRON OIL AND THE
BOMBINGS IN MOSCOW'S SUBWAYS

in the subway system during morning rush-hour.
The recent bombings in Moscow's
subway system are not isolated events for which ordinary Americans
should have little concern; they are in fact the BLOODY result
of a very dangerous game that America's oil elites and the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have been pressing against
Russia in the Caucasus Mountains for the past fifteen years:
They have been attempting to drive Russia out of the Caucasus
and the land immediately adjacent to the northwest corner
of the Caspian Sea and capture its HUGE oil and gas riches
Many Americans might naively (and
selfishly) think that the risk is worth it, after all, cheap
oil is what makes the American life-style possible; but the
"game" that is "afoot" in the Caucasus is not about preserving
cheap gas for American consumers, but investor profits that
are flowing very specifically and directly into the hands
of an extremely small number of elite American (and to a lesser
degree, Dutch, British and other Western) investors who control
the world's oil conglomerates and consortiums that are the
principle players in the Caucasus and Central Asia - Shell,
BP, Chevron, EXXON, Mobile, etc.
The "foot soldiers" that the oil
elites have enlisted in their effort to push Russia out of
the Caucasus are the Islamic Fundamentalists; specifically,
the Islamic rebels in Chechnya. They are being used as cannon
fodder in the effort by the oil elites to grab the wealth
of the Caspian basin, "and to hell with all the people
who get killed" – AND THAT INCLUDES BOTH THE CHECHEN
REBELS AND INNOCENT SUBWAY RIDERS IN MOSCOW.

area; they include Russia, and the newly independent
states of Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Georgia and Azerbaijan
- all recently acquired and duly subservient "client-states"
in the American Empire; also, Iran. The map on the
right shows the area that America's oil elites are
trying to wrest from Russia, specifically, Chechnya,
Ingushetia and Dagestan.

Moscow Metro bombings: Insecurity in
Chechnya, N. Caucasus, comes to Moscow
By Fred Weir
Officials blamed today's twin Moscow Metro bombings, which
struck near the FSB security service and a major state-run media outlet, on
two female suicide bombers from the N. Caucasus.
Suicide bombers struck two stations in Moscow's crowded Metro
less than an hour apart Monday morning, killing at least 37 people and injuring
73, and bringing Russia's seething northern Caucasus directly to the Kremlin's
The first bomb, equivalent to about four kilograms (8.8 pounds)
of TNT, exploded at the height of morning rush hour and killed at least 25 people
inside a train that had just pulled into the Lubyanka station, which is a two-minute
walk from Red Square and located beside the headquarters of Russia's FSB security
service, the former KGB. The second, smaller explosion, 45 minutes later on
the same line, hit a train at Park Kultury, just across the street from a huge
complex that houses the Kremlin news agency RIA-Novosti and the state-run English-language
satellite network Russia Today.
An FSB spokesperson told journalists that "according to
preliminary information, both blasts were carried out by female suicide bombers,"
who brought explosives onto crowded Metro carriages and set them off in what
appears to have been a carefully planned and coordinated series of attacks.
President Dmitri Medvedev pledged to step up security in the Russian capital
and to expand the security crackdown in the turbulent north Caucasus, which
is the almost certain source of the threat.
"We will continue the operation against terrorists without
hesitation and to the end," Mr. Medvedev said in televised remarks after
the tragedy. "It is difficult to prevent such terrorist attacks and to
provide security on transport," such as Moscow's sprawling and overcrowded
Metro system, he said. "It is necessary to tighten what we do, to look
at the problem on a national scale, not only relating to a certain populated
area but on a national scale. Obviously, what we have done before is not enough,"
Security experts offer cautious praise for Russian authorities
who appear to have avoided mass panic with a quick and competent response that
contrasts sharply with clumsy reactions to previous terrorist strikes in downtown
Moscow early in the past decade. The areas were quickly cordoned off by police
and thousands of shaken and frightened survivors evacuated from the stations
– which are among the deepest in the city – in an orderly fashion, and helicopters
were brought into the paralyzed city center to extricate the wounded.
"There is no mistaking the symbolism of the targets; first
the security services and then the main center of state journalism," says
Alexei Mukhin, director of the independent Center for Political Information
in Moscow, whose own office is at Park Kultury. "The people who ordered
these attacks were acting on a carefully thought-out plan." Viktor Ilyukhin,
deputy chair of the State Duma security committee, says the attacks are almost
certainly the result of deteriorating security conditions in the northern Caucasus,
Russia's mainly-Muslim southern flank where a growing extremist insurgency has
been spreading, largely below the world's radar screen, for the past couple
"The terrorists are aiming at destabilization, their goal
is the frighten the population," says Mr. Ilyukhin. "They
also want to take revenge for the actions of the security forces against them,
for the arrests and liquidations of their leaders," in the north Caucasus
region, which includes the turbulent republics of Dagestan, Chechnya and Ingushetia,
Violence in the north Caucasus has been spiking in recent weeks,
including half a dozen bombings in Dagestan this month alone and two attacks
by Ingush insurgents against local officials, most of which is scarcely reported
even in the Russian media.
"Things have been growing worse in the north Caucasus
lately, but this is really the continuation of a threat we've been experiencing
for the past 11 years," says Yulia Latynina, an investigative journalist
who closely follows security issues. Ms. Latynina says the female suicide bombers,
who call themselves shakhidy, or martyrs, but have been dubbed "black
widows" by Russian security forces, are an increasingly favorite tool of
