The Tbilisi Grenade terrorist -- more details
AP: Georgian Police Discover Dangerous Substances in Cellar of Suspect in Bush Grenade Attack

Quote:TBILISI, Georgia (AP) - Georgian police working with the FBI discovered dangerous substances in the house of the suspect who admitted throwing a live grenade toward President Bush at a rally in Tbilisi in May, officials said Wednesday.
Sergo Dzagnidze, chief of the criminal police department at the Interior Ministry, told The Associated Press that 5 gallons of sulfuric acid, several boxes of mercury thermometers, a centrifuge, a microscope and other devices and dangerous chemicals were found in the cellar.

The suspect, Vladimir Arutyunian, was detained last week after a police shootout.

He was charged Tuesday with terrorism over the grenade attack, in addition to earlier charges of killing a police officer in the shootout and illegal possession of weapons.

"The dangerous substances found in the cellar of Arutyunian show that he posed a risk and had a big potential for carrying out terrorist acts," General-Prosecutor Zurab Adeishvili said.

Both Bush and Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili were behind a bulletproof barrier addressing a rally of thousands in Tbilisi in May when the grenade landed about 100 feet away. It did not explode; investigators said it apparently malfunctioned. No one was harmed.

Arutyunian was shown on local television last week admitting throwing the grenade. The suspect said he hoped to kill Bush because he believed the U.S. leader was "interfering in Georgia's internal affairs," his lawyer said Tuesday

Observe that the terrorist is actually Armenian, not Georgian; this is obvious from his name, even if AP neglects to mention this detail.

One may want to speculate for the motives of this attack, but

is obviously not it.

Armenians terrorist organizations have been around since the 19th century and are responsible for large number of attacks in Turkey and Europe.
Government is necessary because people left unchecked will do evil.

The government is composed of people left unchecked

I noticed the name earlier,definitely Armenian.
I read in several Armenian newspaper that he is innocent :lol:
And now for a different kind of terror:

Rejoicing as the king of spam meets his maker

Quote: MOSCOW: One of Russia's most infamous "spammers" has been found beaten to death in his apartment, prompting thinly veiled jubilation among many of the country's estimated 14 million internet users....

Vardan Kushnir, 35, had bombarded almost every email user in the country for years with spam -- unsolicited advertisements -- for the American Language Centre, which he ran.

Police who found his body said he had been hit several times on the head with a heavy object and his apartment in central Moscow had been ransacked. They declined to comment on a motive for the murder.

Another innocent fellah....

Kudos to Russkies for doing the job right....
