Here is the problem with this article...Anna Politkovskaya. I have read enough of her articles to know she is the propaganda mouth for the Islamofacists (AKA al-Qaeda) in Chechena. I don't doubt for a second the Russian Army can be brutal, but I have read many of her articles, and this woman clearly has an agenda.

Misguided perhaps, but still braver than me - she brought water and juice into the Dubrovka theater during that notorious incident.
I wouldn't have gone close to that place for all the money in the world.
I've never met her, but a mutual acquaintance transmitted a SCOTUS pen to her. At first she didn't want it, but after taking one look, she was: "Davai-davai!"
I'm not much for the British kiss-their-ass-and-win-their-minds-BS, but we could give the Russians some pointers on our version of a happy median.
Someone smarter than me said that the Russians, unfortunately, only have blunt instruments to use in their GWOT.
