My question is why answer violence with violence? The current Russian government, since Putin's election, has enacted a surprisingly un-democratic campaign into Chechnya for the past three years.

Now, call me silly, or politically uninformed, but is it not the duty of a "democratic" government to listen to the demands of the people? If there is a separatist movement in a region of a country, is it more in line with the premise of your government to talk, vote, and accept; or is it the way of the democrat to drop fuel-air bombs over villages of women and children? Is all of this worth the price of two of your own soldiers a day, on average? If that is the death toll among the trained and equipped Russian soldiers, what must be the death toll among the rebels?

One Russian was quoted as saying, "Putin has only one choice. [U.S. President George W.] Bush showed the world what to do with these bastards after September 11. It's Putin's turn to liquidate them in Russia." I suppose the aspect of such statements that disturbs me most is that, whether or not they like it, these people are citizens of Russia. Regardless of their religious or political beliefs, they are countrymen to the people they held hostage, and to the soldiers who kill them.

It scares me when the prevalent belief among a country is that part of its population should be, "liquidated."" />

67 bourgeois die, who cares?

Posted 26 October 2002, 6.22 pm by Acheron

The gory end to the recent siege in Moscow gives us our first real chance to examine not only reactions to terrorism, but especially those of the Americans following September 11. Certainly, the "axis of evil" and its many God-hating minions have been busy these past thirteen months, but this is the first visceral example where a terrorist group has from the outset been blamed.

I suppose I'm picking up on the wrong point, but why is it so much worse to kill women than men? Both are people and both deserve to live. Who cares whether someone has a vagina or a penis! How does that decide who's live is more important.

Relating to the article; I beleive that what Bush did in bombing Afghanistan was wrong and any leader following someone simply because he/she is a prominent figure in the US is pure stupidity. No innocent people deserve to die. Killing one group of innocents to avenge the deaths of others will not bring the first to die back to life.

You are absolutely right. I should have said, "innocents", or "people with no direct ties to terrorist acts." This is especially true considering that some of the Chechen hostage-takers in Moscow, in this situation, were women - strapped with explosives, just like the men.

But I think there's more to the difference between men and women than what they use to fuck one another.
