Russian President Vladimir Putin vowed to achieve the “total destruction” of terrorists in a New Year’s address Tuesday, following two days of terror attacks in the city of Volgograd that killed 34 people.

“Dear friends, we bow our heads in front of the victims of the terrible acts of terror. I am sure we will toughly and consistently continue to fight against terrorists until their total destruction,” he said, from the Far Eastern city of Khabarovsk, AFP reports.

The tough talk came as the Kremlin intensifies security in Volgograd, the site of the two attacks this week, and across the country. A regional police official told the Interfax news agency that authorities have boosted the number of security personnel in Volgograd to 5,200, including Interior Ministry troops, in a city of 1 million, the Associated Press reports.

The Health Ministry said Tuesday that three more people died from the bombing of a train station Sunday and a trolley bus a day later, raising the death toll to 34. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which have renewed security concerns ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia that begin Feb. 7.

Prince Bandar threatened Putin with terrorist attacks if he did not stop his diplomatic efforts to intervene in Syria. Putin told him to bring it on. Bandar has delivered. Will Putin deliver? My guess: prepare for stories of Saudi officials dying off under mysterious circumstances very soon.

Now that Russia is feeling the Islamic fanatics, too, he's likely to get mean.  Perhaps he can put some real teeth into the war on terror...

Comrade Putin, we urge you to hit Saudi Arabia hard. Extremely hard! Then dare Kuwait and UAE to even open their mouths. The Germans, Americans, Chinese and Indians hate them just as much as Russians do.

Saudi Arabia is the root of ALL EVIL today. There is no other county that sponsors Wahhabi Sunni strand of Islam as Saudi Arabia. Period.

Maybe Putin will start focusing on important things for Russia instead of continually attacking and maligning the gay community there.  Maybe if he'd focused on protecting Russia instead of his obsession with putting down a vulnerable minority, then he could have prevented these attacks.

Not a fan of Putin for obvious reasons.  But this is the man that told us decades ago about Pakistan and how its leaders were liars and supported the Taliban, etc. through their CIA (ISI).  The USA should align with India, China, and Russia and rid this world of all terrorists.  If it is not done now our grandchildren will have to be bowing five times a day towards Mecca. And don't bother replying to me.  I don't answer them.

GOD WILL NOT HELP THEM THE WICKED JUDGMENT DAY 

We need Leaders that put GOD then Family then Country in that order for with out GOD and Family NONE will have A Country.
Mislead Middle Easterners have threatened to kill and take measures against Christians sounds like bullying bad boys. That their Mother and Father never showed them right from wrong. All the good on Earth want peace Not War. If you cannot have your way you are going to hurt someone this sounds like a mad men to most of the world.

If someone really cares for them, give them a Bible with red letter print. That is a red letter edition words that were spoken by are Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. With a Pray for them the LOST maybe they will be saved, and not go to hell.

Remember for over a Thousand years you have taken you life at risk from the
wicked for carrying a Bible. They have burned the Bible in public many times they have cut off the head of anyone carrying one many a times. They have bombed many a Christian Church, Killing many.

The Persecution of Christians in the Middle East has gone on for over two thousand years.

The Leaders of many Christian groups have criticizes Muslim leaders and Leaders of governments for failing to intervene after series of deadly attacks on Christians and their Churches in many countries around the World, each Christmas.

Killing at least 35 Christians Christmas day Church, Nigerian 2011. Killing over 20 Christians New Year's Eve mass Egypt 2011.  50 killed Christians at a Catholic Cathedral
Baghdad 2010. Over 200 injured Christians Imbaba region by Cairo 2011.  The list goes on
and on and has for many years now. Have you for got so easy many American's like Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr. that was kidnapped and then beheaded in Saudi Arabia in 2004. While thousands gathered and prayed for the wicked to let him go, Till all heard the sound coming from THE PATRIOTIC TRUMPET PLAYER, Monica D. Key Lindbergh playing taps.

  How many Muslim Churches have been attacked or bombed while they are in there
church by Christians? Answer 0

The World wants Peace not more wars.

Many wicked Leaders have deliberately deceived many that are LOST.

Satan's helper Obama goes and plays 6 rounds of golf as Christian are slaughtered by Muslims in Egypt, In Hawaii he goes and plays golf again as Christians are slaughtered in the Middle East by Muslims.

 May our Lord Jesus Christ and GOD the Father that is in Heaven,
Guide and Watch over us.

In this time of TRIBULATION, Strengthen your Faith, and encourage
all to pray for their souls. The strong in the word of our Lord will Now
Help the World and be the disciples of our Lord's Word.

Give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ every day.

IRAN ... The World is going to Renewable Energy with all the SUNLIGHT we get SOLAR Energy would be very easy to do hear. Do you think the rest of the world will see what we are really doing building more Reactors then we could ever use in a country this size? But we need the electric power to Enrich Uranium to make Many Atomic Nuclear Weapons, to bring the world to a Hellish Place. Earthquakes are increasing every year and could cause us the bad mishap or a catastrophic failure 97 million Iranians could die. Just keep this out of the NEWS.
We only need to play Cat and Mouse a little Longer and on one will be able to stop us. What about GOD?

WE ALL NEED TO KEEP WATCH FOR TERRORIST NOT PATRIOTIC AMERICANS.

AROUND THE WORLD MANY HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIFE FOR TELLING THE WORLD THE TRUTH

i pray we Americans are past the1750's some wicked leaders are not. Looks like then are doing witch hunts Witch-hunt undermining those with differing view of the Wicked that work not for GOD and Country.
Was US State Department Navy SEAL Sean Smith and CIA security Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods and J. Christopher Stevens lives “Silence ed” to cover up the Billions of USA Money that some of our leaders are Laundering out of America to the wicked?

This 9-11-2013 the (Million Muslims March On Washington D.C.) is Obama giving them the keys to the White House?

So far over Two Million + and counting America's Patriotic Bikers were going to Washington D.C. THIS 9 - 11- 2013.

Obama said no to the American Patriotic Bikers not his Muslims WHY?

The World is going to Solar Energy UK has more EV  Electric Vehicles Charging Stations then gas.  Americans Wake up. Lets Stop sending your $,$$$,$$$,$$$ to the Middle East


Hollywood Star of Movies like 
"WHITE HOUSE DOWN" &  " WHITE HOUSE AGAINST ALL AMERICANS & CHRISTIANS" SORRY ITS
 "AGAINST ALL ODDS" 

" WHITE HOUSE AGAINST ALL AMERICANS & CHRISTIANS" is real life on going of our wicked in office.

I think these jokers may have made a mistake. Putin will not treat them with kid gloves like we do in the West. I think Putin should summon the Saudi ambasador and explain that any attack on Sochi will result in Mecca getting nuked. After all the Saudies are funding this insurgency and have claimed they can turn it on or off like a faucet. Keep this threat secret of course, but remind those primitive princelings that they live at our pleasure and we can wipe them out on a whim.

Looks like the terrorist are gradually waging war on all countries.  But still haven't taken over any countries.  Hell I don't even know any more what they want to gain.  Like killing for the thrill of killing.

Did anyone reflect on the irony of Putin's support of Edward Snowden, the man who revealed the methods used to stop terrorists?  And that these terrorists may have killed 33 Russians thanks to Putin's efforts?

Hey retard, did you know in islam its against the religion to harm one innocent being? Did you also know its against the religion to burn or rip any pages from the bible or any holy scripture from any other religion? Did you know that your ignorance actually makes me laugh? Did you also know that jews hate christians as much as they hate muslims? Did you know that when jesus was alive the jews were threatened by jesus so they wanted him killed? Yet America and christians still support the statr of isreal? Did you also know that Jesus is a very important figure in the muslim religion? Did you know that in islam jesus is held in one of the highest regards? Did you also know that muslims also wait the return of jesus? Did you know the only difference muslims have about thr opinion of jesus is that he did not die? And thst he is a prophet of god and not a god himself? Did you know any of this you ignorant sad person? Or did you just pull out alot of information outta thin air and decided to share your stupidity with everyone?

Right on! It is high time Putin does what the world should have done long time ago, when Saudis bombed WTC. The biggest evil empire, funded by petrodollars and spreading around the world is Saudi Arabia. Where else will the Chechens find money for the evil plans?

@DeanKlovensI'm sure that the NSA does share some data on terrorists with the Russians, but do they trust it anymore that we trust their intel? The Russians warned us repeatedly about the Tzarneav brothers and we ignored them.

Putin is Russian. It's a practical Russian belief that your enemies enemy is your friend

Snowden has done nothing to harm FIS

That's true and also the main reason why the West has nothing to fear from those primitives. Eventually they'll either kill themselves off or change their culture and beliefs to get with the times.

@kevinh6668 idiot, is that what big brother told you? that Snowden exposing government tyranny is somehow terrorism? When exposing illegal acts by government is seen as a terrorist act, you might be a sheep living on a farm.

@SallySnyder   Chechen terrorist leadership has been decimated by the Russians.  One of the few leaders the Chechen terorrists have left is Doku Umarov.  The Russians may miss the mark in many areas, but when it comes to eliminating their enemies, they're very effective.
