Probably Russian government killing off people and blaming it on space objects.

come on now, let's get real. This event was brought on by the increased heat radiating from our planet due to global warming and...naturally of course if you don't believe that...then blame it on Bush!

None of the above. Meteorite entered the atmosphere at the speed of 7 miles per second which caused extreme heat and explosion outside of city Chelyabinsk, Russia, near Ural Mountains. The explosion itself produced almost blinding amount of light, folowed by gigantic wave of aftershock, which caused all glass widows including frames in the city to shatter and caused injuries to about 1,200 people. It is certain the meteorite itself exploded above the surface and the frangments landed in nearby woods. Sorry, nothing political here, certainly nothing from American side.
