RUSSIA: Europeans Blame Russia for School Massacre

September 4, 2004: Russia has ordered North Ossetia to be sealed off, and more troops and police have been sent in. So far, 20 of the terrorists have been killed, ten of them said to be Arabs, and three captured. At least four more were still on the loose. One of the teenage captives reported that the terrorists had placed bombs all over the school gymnasium, where many of the hostages were being held. She said some of the bombs were taped to the wall, and tape on one bomb came loose, the bomb fell and went off, causing the terrorists to panic and set off more bombs and start shooting at hostages. While most countries offered condolences to Russia, the European Union demanded to know why there were so many casualties. The European Union has long held Russia responsible for the Chechen situation, downplaying the role of Chechen gangsters, religious fanatics and terrorists.

Well, the EU knows it has to appease its own growing Mohammedan population, and the Arab states they do business with.

This is an outrage. Arab and Chechen terrorists perform horrible atrocities in a Russian school, and the EU blames Russia. This just goes to show what a worthless piece of crap the EU is.

Eu is so damn dumb, is it France's fault that their citizens are being held hostage by terrorists too? it makes NO sense to blame the victim, in order to try and make sense of a senseless act. Women murdering children has got to be the worst possible act ever portrayed.

The EU did all it could to help defuse the hostage situation. France even offered to surrender.

The EU is only angry that Russia actually had the gall to try and defend itself against the terrorists, instead of just giving them a free pass simply because they're Muslim.

Cowards can't stand anyone who tries to show some courage.

The Chechen mafia is well-involved in Germany, evidently they have supplanted the Turkish criminal element in some significant places. The Europeans have much to fear from these Chechens, and much to lose; or maybe elements of the EU are already transferring payments of tribute to the Chechens.

Dear Russia,

We know how you feel. The Euroweenies want to blame us for the terrorist acts on our own soil too. Give us a call if you'd like to coordinate hunting down those who are really responsible.

Sincerely,
America

At the rate the muslims, and Germany, and France, and the UN, and Kerry are working, The US and Russia will soon be very close allies. That would be an interesting union.

"the European Union demanded to know why there were so many casualties."

Uhh.. why don't they instead ask why terrorists are stupid enough to take a school full of kids hostage and then decide to kill them?
I suppose to the euro-twits their positions makes sense..

We and the Russians
should pick an Arab country
use our cleanest nukes

and turn it to glass.
Arabs are killing children,
and we're fighting "fair."

I say it's past time
for us to get grim ourselves.
Enough is enough.

re: "Maybe Russia would like to become the U.S.'s fifty-first state"

Over the last couple of years I have had the opportunity to work with counselors who accompany Russian orphans to America to attend camps and stay with families that hopefully will eventually adopt them. Without exception I have found them to be the most pleasant and agreeable people you could hope to work with! I asked one of them during the last camp, through an interpreter, what they think of the US when they get over here. She said that the ones who are here for the first time used to be amazed, but over the last few years the conditions especially around Moscow have become very much like those here in America.

I'm sure the EU will be just as tolerant when similar outrages occur on their soil. Of course, when that happens, the fault will be ours for kicking off the WOT.

Right, just like 9/11 was America's fault. Wait til something like this happens in the suburbs around Paris or Munich. Who's fault will it be then? (probably GWB and Halliburton's fault).

Here's how Old Europe deals with terror:

"To free the hostages, United States military officials say, Germany paid him a ransom of nearly $6 million — equivalent to a quarter of Niger's defense budget — making him instantly one of the most powerful Islamic militants in North Africa. He is a leader of the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat, or G.S.P.C., which was formed in 1998 and has many links with Al Qaeda." http://www.globalpolicy.org/empire/terrorwar/analysis/2004/0511training.htm

Yup - the 80-90s was a time when the USA (Dems and Repubs) openly sided with the jihad. 9/11 was blowback for that.

"For too long, President Clinton and Vice President Gore have refused to use their power and influence to pressure the Kremlin into genuine negotiations to end the bloody conflict in Chechnya which already has cost countless thousands of lives of men, women, and children.

"Aside from empty rhetoric, the Administration has not lifted even a finger to make clear the outrage of the United States at the atrocities committed by Russian forces against innocent Chechen civilians.

Of course it's Russia's fault their children were murdered by sadistic butchers. Just like it's our fault our people were terrorized in the skies and used as human bombs to destroy our buildings. Just as it's Israel's fault that their flesh is exploded by suicide bombers.

No, it could never be the fault of the black hearted murderers that commit the acts.
