    The boy that lies in his father's lap covered with crusts of blood gazing upward at nothing, nothing at all except his own pain. The soldier with the unlit cigarette carrying the little girl in filthy underwear with a long smear of blood across her nose and down her chin. The child's small hand with the dry pool of blood in the palm and the small gold crucifix lying in it. The stretcher being run past the camera carrying what might, under the burns and the blood, be a young girl.... and another, and another, and another, and another, and...
  • The peculiar mindset of muslims!

    In the BBC comments on the tragedy in Russia you find how muslims think http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/talking_point/3624494.stm (Imram is a muslim name) "Its a sad ending which I don't even think the rebels wanted. Putin has once again shown that he has no respect for human life, be it innocent children or whatever. I see no reason as to why the building was stormed. The only thing that comes to my mind is to show the ruthlessness or their military might. Innocent lives could have been saved by negotiations. Innocent children and civilians are paying the price whether it be in Afghanistan,...

    I am from Oklahoma. I lived in Oklahoma City on the day of the Murray building bombing. Although we had no warning of the impending doom that touched every one's lives in this community, it was nonetheless devestating. I am sure there are many from New York and DC that feel the way I do. As someone who experienced the horror of terrorism so closely I can truly empathize with the poor people of Beslan. My heart is ripped in two thinking of the children, as I did on that fatefull day in April not so long ago. I can...

When children fainted from lack of sleep, food and water, their masked and camouflaged captors simply sneered. In the intolerable heat of the gym, adults implored children to drink their own urine. Hours after escaping alive, a...

    CAIRO (Aljazeera) --An Egyptian cleric based in Qatar and often described as a moderate has ruled that it is a religious duty for Muslims to fight Americans in Iraq, including U.S. civilians, his office director has said. But the cleric, Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, said that two French journalists kidnapped in Iraq should be freed immediately. "All of them (U.S. military personnel and civilians) are invaders who came from their country to invade our country and fighting them [in Iraq] is a duty," said his office director Essam Talima on Thursday, quoting a fatwa or ruling on religious law by al-Qaradawi....

    Terror Attacks Prompt Tough Talk From Kremlin By Sergei Blagov CNSNews.com Correspondent September 02, 2004 Moscow (CNSNews.com) - A series of terrorist outrages in Russia have resulted in hard-line rhetoric from the Kremlin, but it remains to be seen whether the attacks eventually could lead to a foreign policy rethink, with possible implications for Iraq. President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday his government was prepared to destroy terrorists and separatists. "There can be no dialogue with those who wanted to fight and who made war a way of earning money," he told journalists. "We shall fight against them, throw them in...

    BESLAN, Russia (AP) - Commandos stormed a school Friday in southern Russia and overcame separatist rebels holding hundreds of hostages as crying children, some naked and covered in blood, fled the building through explosions and gunfire. Health officials said more than 200 people died, the Interfax news agency reported. Ninety-five victims were identified - many of them children whose shattered, bloodied bodies were placed on lines of stretchers - and Interfax quoted unnamed sources in the regional Health Ministry as saying more than 200 people were killed by fire from the militants or died from their wounds. Hundreds of hostages...

"It is premature now, without knowing the exact situation, to make a judgment on the way the Russian authorities acted," said Dutch Foreign Minister Bernard Bot, whose country currently holds the European Unionpresidency.

    [Pupils were lured by chocolate then starved and threatened by terrorists] WHEN their chance of freedom came with a massive explosion that shook School No 1, many of the children found that they could not escape. Forced to strip to their underwear and sit shoulder-to-shoulder for three days with their knees tucked under their chins, their legs were numb and would not respond to the instinct to flee. Hungry and dehydrated after being denied food and water by their captors, they stumbled aimlessly and weakly, their way further hampered by the debris and dust from the blast falling all around...

    Savage is going ballistic on Islamofascist terrorists, tune him in if you can. He took a call from a supporter of Chechnya's actions, and said perhaps Putin could say he was justified in dropping a nuke on Mecca, if it is indeed a world war. If the islamofascists can defend this type of terrorism as "defensive" (in the mind of the caller) then Putin could say the same thing about using nukes to finish it once and for all.

    BESLAN, North Ossetia -- When the armed attackers seized School No. 1, they separated the men from the women and children and marched them up to the second floor. The men, most of them teachers, were lined up against the wall. This is when Yury Ailarov, a father who had accompanied his daughter to school on Wednesday morning with his wife, decided not to stick around. He jumped out of the second-floor window, according to his friend Pyotr Sidarov, who said he visited Ailarov in the hospital where he was being treated for two broken arms and a concussion. Ailarov...
