What do you think about the crisis in Chechnya?

(Check out http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita...r/chechnya.htm for background reading)

Also, Does anyone know anything about the US SF soldiers working in Georgia since 2002?

First Chechenya war was a disaster, 2nd was a lot better. Now its alot calmer then before. And from this year only contract soldiers will serve in Chechenya.

chechens are probably the most ruthless people, second to the palestinians.

Mod edit: Avoid generalities, Marksman, and no further inflammatory language will be tolerated. Your point can easily be made without the use of "*********."

it's been a while since I went to the kavkaz site. I followed the first war and the 2nd war pretty close. Here are some pictures from that site. Too bad there is no date on those picts.

I read something different about those pictures:

"It was Afghanistan, it is a BTR-60 armored personnel carrier, and the people on it are Afghans. That much is correct.

It was not taped as an ambush, or to record damage. It was taken, if I remember correctly, by a European news crew.

The explosion was caused by an anti-tank mine, not a bomb. You will note that after its all said and done, the bodies of the injured and dead are still mostly intact, and the vehicle is in only a couple of pieces. That is because the explosion that lifted the vehicle is only 40 pounds or so. I say "only" and "explosion" in the same sentence, because if it was a LGB, the vehicle, and the occupants/riders, and probably the cameraman would have been hamburger. The smallest LGB is about 500 pounds, and makes for a mighty kaboom. Take a look at the gulf war pics. An APC hit by 500 pounds looks like a pepsi can hit by a 12 gauge at close range.

I saw the video of this in, about 1996 or 1997, well before Chechnya, and it was in a documentary or other. I can't remember the title, but it was about the ongoing strife in the former Afghanistan, etc. etc. "

Checnyan official web site. Check it out!

"chechens are probably the most ruthless people, second to the palestinians."

But however, they are the same people like you are and both chechnyans like palestinians are fighting for their rights and freedom.

anyone know the death toll on both sides of the 2nd war in Chechenya? I know both sides downplay their casualties while exaggerating enemy casualties.
