Russia foils terror attack


MOSCOW, May 20 - Russian special services eliminated two gunmen suspected of masterminding a terror attack in Moscow and arrested another, the National Anti-terrorism Committee (NAC) said Monday.

During the Federal Security Service's ambush, two militants were killed, the third was apprehended. One special forces' serviceman was also wounded.

"The militants neutralized in the town of Orekhovo-Zuyevo could conduct a terror attack at a mass event in the Russian capital downtown," spokesman for the NAC told local media.

The three Russians have arrived at this town, about 80 km east of Moscow, about a month ago following sabotage training in a Taliban camp in Pakistan, the Interfax news agency said.

There were no casualties among civilians, the NAC said.

President Vladimir Putin has been briefed about the counter- terror operation in the Moscow region, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
