"MOSCOW, March 4 (Reuters) - Chechen separatist leader Aslan Maskhadov said on Friday it would only take a brief talk with President Vladimir Putin to persuade him to end the war in Chechnya."

That was a very short meeting.

Whatever legitimate beef the Chechens had with the Russians became irrelevant once they let themselves get taken over by islamics. I have no sympathy for them anymore.

Five militants arrested in Chechnya

     KHANKALA.  March  5  (Interfax)  - Five militants involved in major
crimes have  been  arrested  in  Chechnya,  a spokesman for the regional
headquarters  of  the  counter-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus
told Interfax.
     "One  militant  was  arrested  in  the  village  of Geldagan in the
Kurchaloi  district  of Chechnya. In 1999, he took part in the abduction
and murder  of  three  employees of the North Caucasian Strela Automated
Air Traffic Control Center," the spokesman said.
     Three   other   militants   were  detained  in  Achkhoi-Martan  and
Naurskaya.
     "In  January,  two of them blew up a VAZ-2110 car carrying a deputy
chief of  the  Achkhoi-Martan  prosecutor's  office,  who  was seriously
wounded in the blast," the spokesman said.
     Another militant, who was involved in the assassination of Nasrudin
Matuyev, the mullah of Novye Atagi, has been arrested. He is a suspected
member of a gang led by Timur Abubakarov.
     "During interrogation, he disclosed the names of other perpetrators
of this and other crimes, and indicated their possible whereabouts," the
spokesman said.

Rostov-on-Don, birthplace of my youngest daughter, a city I fell madly in love with while there.

Also the place we had to not speak English on the streets so we did not become victims of a chechen kidnapping, and it was where we had an armed bodyguard while completing our adoption.

Many prayers for the good Russians in Rostov-on-Don.

Do a seach on an organization called the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya, and check out a list of its members. Two questions immediately came to my mind when I read through that list:

1. Why the hell are all of these people who were such strong supporters of the U.S. "war on terror" in the Middle East criticizing the Putin government for its means of dealing with the Chechen separatists?

2. How the hell did all these "neo-conservatives" like William Kristol, Richard Perle, Norman Podhoretz, Caspar Weinberger, Michael Ledeen, Robert McFarlane, Alexander Haig, Elliott Abrams, James Woolsey, and Robert Kagan end up in the same leftist lobbying group as Geraldine Ferraro and Richard Gere?
