Yeah, easily said from a distance. However, when your (gay) Russian husband is back in Russia visiting family the cavalier thought of letting Russians die because "fark em" isn't quite as quaint.

Yes, Russia certainly has it's problems with gay rights at the moment. In fact, the husband is still deep in the closet while in Russia as it's just not safe. However, it's not like there aren't millions of Americans who would like for the same anti-gay situation to exist in the US and the rest of the world. The US is ahead of the game on gay rights over Russia, but still behind other democracies such as Canada. It's a reason to work to make things better in the US, Russia, and the rest of the world. Not a reason to cheer on innocent people being killed while trying to take the train or bus.

Then much of this tale would confirm your theory.  It's not a story of a flawless conspiracy, but of coverups after bungling.

After the initial bombing, Russian apartment block dwellers became quite vigilant.  Some found suspicious men lurking around their building late at night.  Having chased them off, they found the basement packed with bags of explosives.  The apartment block was evacuated, an APB put out for the men.

The men were captured by the local police and were found to be FSB agents.  This happened.

It isn't just anti-gay, it's anti-black, anti-semitic.. pro-Nazi... it's pro-terrorism in general. Until/unless they develop a more general distaste for terrorism in general, they'er going to keep seeing it crop up domestically for a variety of reasons.

The crazies might not be so crazy.   I found several articles from July/August that said the Saudi Intelligence Chief Prince Bandar (also former Saudi Ambassador to the US) met with Putin and asked for cooperation on Syria and other areas in exchange for 'protection' against Chechen terrorist attacks leading up the Olympics, and he said he had American support.  He also said Saudi controls the Chechen rebels who would perform the attacks.

These articles were leaked to the Russian press obviously by the Russians as it paints Putin in a strong, positive light.

I don't think the USA had anything to do with the attacks, but it is an interesting background to these attacks and shows how complicated geopolitical events are.

Not so much.   The Russians leveled Grozny to the ground with carpet bombing.
 

The Russians still occupy Chechnia.   There were many more Chechens killed than Russians.

The Chechens have a lot more reason to be annoyed with the Russians than vice versa.  There's strong evidence that much of the terrorism attributed to the Chechins was actually the work of the Russian security services.
