Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Breaking news Chechnya

Chechen terrorists (and I use that term deliberately) have launched an attack on the city of Nalchik in Kabardino-Balkaria. It seems to have been a mass attack launched against the police and security offices in the city but a school and the city's airport have been caught up in the fighting.
This of course brings to mind the vicious assault on the school in Beslan just over a year ago. This is rapidly becoming one of those parts of the world where folks just kill each other merely for being alive.

Weren't they the same terrorists that took over that theater a couple of years back?

Yup, that's the guys. Seriously into major destruction and death. but then, the Russians inflict the same on them so I guess there is some balance.

Yeah, that's a nasty little circle.

I'd be a little concerned about messing with the Russians though after that theater incident. If I remember right, they killed everyone, even the hostages.

What a useless waste of life. And, I may be slow, but I still don't understand exactly what their objective is, other than drawing attention to a cause that is unclear to begin with.
