Chechnya and the Caucasus do not deserve to be the pawns of an international game, in which America "gives" them to Russia in return for Russian "support" against militant Islam.

Chechnya and the rest of that area deserves to be free (from Russia). We push it into the hands of Islamicism by treating it the same way Eastern Europe was treated after World War II -- as a political bargaining chip.

Don't think America is "giving" anything to the Russians. The Russians will do whatever they want in the Caucasus, regardless of our position on the conflict.

Amazing to watch the Russians commit national suicide. Iran's behind the growing Muslim revolt in the Caucasus, and yet Russia kisses up to Tehran while at the same time commiting the most horrible atrocities in Chechnya (although, to be fair, Beslan was at least as bad or maybe worse than anything Ivan's done). They don't understand the idiocy, the contradiction, the complete short-sightedness of their policy.

I wouldn't dirty my hands by backing or even sympathizing with either side. I think America needs to focus on building up democracies in Georgia and Armenia, as after the Russians are kicked out of the mountains, the Muslims will turn on those two Christian nations.

The remarks above are simply insane. Firstly, Chechnya is a part of Russia. Secondly, we did not push them into the hands of Islamicism, the thugs ran the rest of the people out of the region in a takeover. Thirdly, the Chechen terrorists are controlled by al-Qaeda, and you will find them on every battlefield in the world where you find dead al-Qaeda. Yep, let's set up the Republic of al-Qaeda on Russia's border. sarcasm/off
