"This story presents no proof whatsoever to back up the allegations of a Russian government that needs to deflect attention from the very poor job it did in handling the terroris attack."
The Russians did not do a terrible job, the terrorists came with one goal-to kill
Like the highjackers of 911 they wanted to buy time so they pretended to start talks
Their demands (Russia leaving Chechnyia) showed that they had no intention of dealing but wanted to stall to inflict the maximum losses
Any terror/hostage situation must from now be instantly responded to-no talking.
They were killing people in the building and refusing water to the children-no talking was possible with those crimes going on
The Russians failure was in not reacting right away, which might have saved more lives
We must learn from their mistake
We will not allow any more planes to be hijacked now that we know what they intend to do with them
"There's no story to "kill" yet. As far as I'm concerned, until there is real proof or even a strong likelihood of an Al Qaeda involvement, it's just evil Chechnyian terrorists so stoney-hearted that they can bayonet a child or shoot children in the back. Evil. Pure evil."
The Chechnyias are Muslims
They have identified Arabs among them
Al Quaeda has long been known to have its operatives fighing in Chechnyia
The media will not attach the dots less the Iraqi war seem justified as a war against terror
Saddam had a terror group in his country
Saddam gave sanction to the PLO murderer who killed that American cripple on the ship
This is a world-wide war, not just isolated incidents
