Chechnya had independence and it's a precurser to what the PLO will be: jihadist indocternation, jihadist training, murder of non-islamics, slavery, gun running, murder, drug running, kidnapping, etc. Besides 1. try building a wall across the Rocky Mountains. 2. Will Georgia build a wall on their side too or continue to stamp the visa of every single islamic coming through while accepting Uncle Sugar's money to control the entry?
