Bombings in Russia Follow Saudi Threat to Attack Russia

Twin blasts targeting a train station and a trolley bus in the city of Volgograd which killed at least 31 people follow a threat by Saudi Arabia to attack Russia using Chechen terrorists if Moscow did not withdraw its support for President Assad in Syria, reports Infowars.

Infowars continues:
While the media has concentrated on the threat such groups pose to February’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, no scrutiny has been given to a warning issued by Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan back in August when he told Vladimir Putin that Saudi Arabia would activate the Chechen terrorist groups it controls to target Russia if Moscow refused to abandon its support for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.
As we reported at the time, the threat was made during a closed-door meeting between Prince Bandar and Putin at the beginning of August.
According to a transcript of the comments made during the meeting by Middle Eastern news agency Al Monitor, Bandar made a series of promises and threats to Putin in return for Moscow withdrawing its support for Assad in Syria.
“I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year,” Bandar allegedly stated, adding, “The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”
Bandar made it clear that his position was supported by the US government.
This “guarantee” to stop the Chechens from attacking the Sochi Olympics was also obviously a veiled threat that if Russia did not abandon Assad, terrorist attacks would be given the green light.
Given that Russia did not abandon Assad and indeed virtually single-handedly prevented a US military strike on Syria, much to the chagrin of Saudi Arabia which is the primary supplier of anti-Assad rebel jihadists, are we to believe that the Volgograd bombings are evidence of Bandar following through on his threat?


  1. Bad career move, Bandar.

    How quickly could Putin turn a wide expanse of sand into "New Arabia"?
    Or maybe just turn it into...more sand.
    Mebbe the House of Saud doesn't really "Own" that country.
    I hear that Walmart is hiring Stockpersons at some stores, Bandar.
    Better start brushing up on your "People Skills".

  2. If Bandar was crazy enough to threaten Putin in this way over Syria, then it wouldn't be long before there were whispers in 'Syrian' rebel ears about what the Saudi royal family were up to and maybe it was time to sort things out in that oil rich part of the world.

  3. Remember the name Prince Bandar. Whenever it appears in the press, someone has probably had a very bad day. He's a very, very dirty player. From 15th February 2008:

    "Saudi Arabia's rulers threatened to make it easier for terrorists to attack London unless corruption investigations into their arms deals were halted, according to court documents revealed yesterday.

    Previously secret files describe how investigators were told they faced "another 7/7" and the loss of "British lives on British streets" if they pressed on with their inquiries and the Saudis carried out their threat to cut off intelligence.

    Prince Bandar, the head of the Saudi national security council, and son of the crown prince, was alleged in court to be the man behind the threats to hold back information about suicide bombers and terrorists. He faces accusations that he himself took more than £1bn in secret payments from the arms company BAE [...]

    The judge said he was surprised the government had not tried to persuade the Saudis to withdraw their threats. He said: "If that happened in our jurisdiction [the UK], they would have been guilty of a criminal offence". Counsel for the claimants said it would amount to perverting the course of justice."

  4. LOL, does Bandar know what Putin is capable of? Assuming this is all true, Putin can easily have some SVR agents stir up those who aren't happy with the House of Saud to attack him and his government. Bandar is really playing with fire if this is true

  5. I have something to pray for in the New Year: for Russia to turn Saudi Arabia into glass. It won't happen, but dare to dream. Take out the Royal (yeah right!) House of Saud and we will see terrorists virtually disappear overnight.
