Suspect: We Wanted to Start a War (TROPô proselytizing among the infidels)
CNN ^ | September 6, 2004 | Jill Dougherty, Ryan Chilcote and Matthew Chance

Beslan, Russia – A suspect in the bloody school siege that left more than 330 people dead, nearly half of them children, said Monday the hostage-takers were ordered to seize the school to "start a war across the Caucasus."

Appearing on Russian state television, the unidentified man said the attack was ordered by Chechen rebel leader Aslan Maskhadov and Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev.

"They gathered us in the woods and 'The Colonel' said that we should take over a school in Beslan. That was our order," he said.

"When we asked why we were doing this, what our goal was, 'The Colonel' answered us, 'Because we need to start a war across the Caucasus."

He said the hostage-takers included Uzbeks, Arabs and Chechens.

The video also showed investigators displaying weapons confiscated in their search of the wrecked and bombed out school.

The suspect earlier had said he did not fire a shot inside the school and that he "pitied the children" who were taken captive.

"Of course I pitied the children, I swear to Allah. I have children myself. I didn't shoot. I swear to Allah," he said. "I don't want to die. I swear to Allah, I want to live."

I believe the Russians are adept at using fuel-air-explosives in populated areas. We may see this used again to try and kill off these leaders.

"I swear to Allah," he said. "I don't want to die. I swear to Allah, I want to live."

So did the people you murdered.

It would appear this slimeball is singing already. Maybe he can tell Russian Intelligence where his boss and others are. Nothing like fear to help one along.

They can always kill him later.

Isn't he sweet? I guess the reports that he was observed, shortly before capture, firing from behind child hostages are UNTRUE. I mean, who should I believe, this guy who looks OK on TV (sort of a poor man's Ben Affleck) or a bunch of witnesses?

Guess we have to let him go. I mean, where's the PROOF?

They need to extract all useful information from this sorry piece of trash and dispatch him forthwith. He can then personally worship his demon god in Hell for all eternity.

Don't kill him.

Daily sublethal flogging with weekends off to reflect on the coming week. Bab's movies one weekend a month (I know, I know but Russia doesn't a proscription against "cruel and unusual").

Helter Skelter! I told you. Islam is the Manson Family on a global scale. And the Islamofascists make about as much sense as Charlie does.

You want a war.... with the Russians??? These are same guys who dropped bombs on a Chechnyan hospital a few years back that they were taking fire from. The streets ran with blood for days like a stream. And that was before they murdered 400+ women and children. I guess they're going to get what they want. The guy that survived looked clean cut, photogenic and scared ####less. My prediction is thats the last video or photo you'll see of him for a while. He's just cracked open Hell's door and he's got one foot in.

I want a war... with the Russians? Well, it's perfectly simple. "I" am not "they". But don't let me steal your thunder or nothing.
