Notorious Chechen Rebel Masterminded School Seige — Report Created: 03.09.2004 19:27 MSK (GMT +3), Updated: 19:41 MSK, 13 hours 7 minutes ago

MosNews

Rebel Chechen leader, Shamil Bassayev, was the mastermind behind the school siege in the North Ossetian town of Beslan, ITAR-TASS news agency reported quoting spokesmen of the Southern Federal District secret service.

The operation was organized by Bassayev’s subordinate, Magomet Yevloyev. He is also suspected of having organized the attack in Ingushetia in June.

Another infamous Chechen rebel, Doku Umarov, was among the rebels who attacked the school. He was the only one not to wear a mask, with hostages subsequently recognizing him, the NTV television channel reported.

The operations headquarters in Beslan stressed that the group that seized the school was multinational. Most of the killed gunmen were born in Arab countries. The suicide bombers were trained by the al-Qaeda specialists, the agency quoted the secret service as saying.

Seeing how many of terrorists were Arab and not Chechen, it was obvious from early on that Al-Qaeda was directly involved.

Let there be no doubt, this was Russias 911.

The bear will strike at the time and place of their choosing.......and beyond that, they will project power to pre-empt/destroy the groups and states that make this possible. This fight will no longer be an "internal struggle" in Russia.

I see a grand alliance between Russia, the Anglosphere, Israel and India in this, the next great world war.

Now there is a shocker. Time for open season on these assholes. They don't respect innocent life so why should worry about knocking their sorry asses off?

May Muhammadans break from their death cult of terror or see mushroom clouds take their misery away...along with ours.

When is the western press going to start referring to these nutcases as terrorists?

The pictures...are those on YOUR server? The reason I'm asking is I want a Freeper to save them so they don't disappear.

I'm sure this Islamic cockroach thinks he's just the greatest genius Allah ever spawned, but...

A friend of mine with a long background in law enforcement made an interesting comment a couple of weeks ago. He said that Al Quaida was stupid in taking down the Twin Towers - that if they wanted to bring the US to heel, what they should do is to attack some schoolyards and kill a bunch of schoolchildren. In his cynical view of things, the soccer moms of America would then arise in a solid wailing mass to demand that we just get out of the Middle East and give al-Quaida whatever they want, and would defeat any politician who didn't go along with them.

Now, I disagree with him. I think the fury that would be generated in this country by such an act, would completely overwhelm any wails for appeasement on the part of terrified mothers. But... it occurs to me that the subhuman filth who perpetrated this atrocity in Russia, may have been thinking along the same lines as my friend was suggesting...

No, Russia was already way past 911 before this.

Please let us not forget that the terrorists are being aided and abetted by the out-of-power communists in Russia; and, to an extent their operatives in the rest of the free world. CPUSA, eg.

This battle is against two enemies who, for convenience, have epoxied themselves. Ron Silver gets it.

I sure hope the Russians don't put panties on the captured freedom fighters heads. That would be an atrocity.

This was Russia's 9/11 and they won't forget. Putin knows he's got to get in front of this one or he's toast.

And in an unrelated thread, I'm pushing Bush up from 45-49 states to 50. The people will speak and the left will be devastated. Kind of like they always are.

Has there been any definite number of dead hostages? I've heard anywhere between 150 and 500.

Anyway, here's a picture of Basayev I found. I give this guy about 3 weeks to live:

Yeah...I knew to go to the link. Thanks for telling me it was Michael. HE will keep them "out there". I'm just afraid that as with 9-11, these pictures won't be around anymore.

For our own good and all that crap.

A bullit between the running lights would be a better choice in my humble opinion.
