A number of parents and civilians from the town took up arms when they found there children were inside (I dont blame them) At least this is the info Im getting from another forum, they may just be some off duty policemen, but Im fairly sure some individuals apart from the military and government took up positions around the compound.

Got a source for that? (Besides another forum.)

If so, from personal experience fighting fires, there is nothing more aggravating and counter-productive than untrained personnel trying to help under their own supervision, and I can only imagine how badly this would be magnified in a situation like that. I hope and pray that the initial reports prove to be incorrect as far as the civilian casualties are concerned.

I cant confirm Redneck, It may just be BS but I got a feeling some people did arm themselves. This is horrible, I cant imagine the plight of our Russian brothers. I am reminded of a song at such a moment, and although It wasn't written to describe this, I feel the words describe the tragedy perfectly.

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart


RIP and God Bless all those who fell In these last 24 hours, and may God have mercy on these terorists, because Russia and her friend the USA will not...

did they capture any terrorists alive, because i i heard about were the ones that they killed.


and i believe that it is all to possible that there may have been some vigilante forces attempting something as GOTR suggested.

Actually they said 10 were Arabs, Im sure they all were Muslims. A black? Interesting, perhaps recruited from Somalia or the Sudan?

I've also heard rumors about this on the news here..

About 30 of the killed are supposed to be Russian Special Forces (Spetznaz?).
3 terrorists have been taken alive, and at least 3 are still missing.

They do also believe that most of the guns and explosives were already in the school building when the terrorists arrived.
Probably been hidden there when the school was being fixed this summer.
