May I suggest something, since you are new here and have some grievances with older members.
Copy all the members names you have a problem with or you dont think understand the situation and do a "ping" of them. I dont know enough about Russia, Anna or Chechnya to help you out.
So, please express our sympathies. Just remember that there are always a few bad apples, and those who are trying to make jokes, in every group. FR is usually the most civil political message forum on the planet.
Why has the elementary thought not occurred to any of you, that a person can love their country, their city, their people, and want that life in their country should be as comfortable as in the USA?
And I think everyone here agree's that we all want life in every country to be as comfortable as is it in the USA. It would solve so many problems that we couldn't count them.
That is so cool! I had no idea I'd been promoted!

You might want to consider the word "troll". Vanities such as this one are not encouraged here.
Was your hero not the person who said these things, from the post above?
" And war came to Bush at just the right time."
You're in the wrong place.
svni has something to say. (pulled your names off of a thread that was referenced)
I think I understand the grievance, but here this.
Whenever a political movement or social uprising occurs, historically fringe groups get involved on one side or the other and this fact covers up the intent a real reason the political dissent occurred in the first place.
Bearing in mind the intent of Chechen's to attain independence, the situation now has fallen into the category of terror and needs to be not only quelled, but destroyed.
This is not the fault of the men and women who had the original goal of peaceful dissent, and should be understood as such, but now the entire situation has changed.
Now the islamofashists have taken over the political discourse and moved the entire matter to a destroy or be destroyed simplicity.
The events are now out of the control of the original parties in the matter. The outcome now has but one ending and that is the total annihilation of the problem.
Unfortunately for Chechnya, the desire for independence and the movement to accomplish it is over. It is now a terrorist cleanup operation and it will not end until all participants are dead, incarcerated or in exile.
This is the only course of action that Putin has now, in my opinion. The terrorists are to be blamed, but all will pay the price.
Believe me when I say that this is unfortunate and should not have happened.
But it has, and it the clock cannot be reset.
"trying to enhance her image"?! Hmm, I get the idea.
By the way you might want to click on the poster of that second thread you linked to in your initial post.
