There seems to be a lot of interest around "black widow" or women who blew themselves up in Moscow subway today. I wanted to explain who they are and why they did that.
Black widow is a wife to a dead Chechen or any other Muslim Terrorist who died while fighting Russian forces. Wives in such situations loose their social status and cannot easily remarry other men. They understand that and become very bitter and disappointed in themselves and people around them. All this bitterns is directed with the help of Islam radicals towards Russians who are being faulted in their husband's deaths. So, as you can see it is easy to brain wash someone who has not future and bitter about personal loss.
Black widow comes from the black clothing that they have to wear sometime for the rest of their lives morning dead husbands.
Terrorist basically prey on on suffering of women and direct them to blow themselves up knowing that Russians are very lienent towards women and would never check them as much as they would check suspicouse men. So one side is playing on the weakness of another at the expense of black widow lifes and lives of innocent people they kill.
