    Terror 'Surprise' for Sochi Olympics? Purported Suicide Bombers' New Threat [W:27]

    Terror 'Surprise' for Sochi Olympics? Purported Suicide Bombers' New Threat - ABC News

    Citing a new "surprise package" for Russia and Olympic spectators, Islamist militants in the North Caucasus Sunday launched a new threat to the Sochi Olympics with a purported "martyrdom" video by two suicide bombers who attacked a transit hub 400 miles away.

    The video posted on a Chechen extremist site considered a credible platform for militant statements featured two unidentified men before the black flag of jihad and cradling AKMS rifles.

    The duo -- dressed in street clothes and without the usual trappings of jihadis -- casually explained that Russians and those attending the Winter Games next month will not be safe as long as forces sent by President Vladimir Putin occupy the North Caucasus region near Sochi, Russia.

    "We'll have a surprise package for you," one of the men said in the militants' video. "And those tourists that will come to you, for them, too, we have a surprise. If it happens [the Olympics], we'll have a surprise for you. This is for all the Muslim blood that is shed every day around the world, be it in Afghanistan, Somalia, Syria, all around the world. This will be our revenge."
    Obama should see the video, it shows al Qaeda on the run.

    everything's about Obama now eh? might as well throw in NaVorro Bowman's ACL injury and Richard Sherman's trash talking in there it's Obama's fault.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    They may be a Russia problem, but Obama is selling that "terrorism is stamped out and they're on the run" meme.

    What a ridiculous, self-serving claim. That conflict has nothing to do with the US or our actions.

    Should I post an article about Fallujah to prove that not only is Obama a liar, but terrorism is worse than when he took office. It's worse everywhere. The Olympics are an international event, do you believe only one terrorist group is interested in making a statement there?
