IHG84 saidUnfortunately this isn't anything new. Its been going on for awhile, the worst terrorist attack so far would have to be the one in Beslan. Its all done by the same group of people, Ukrainian/Chechen terrorist who are all hyped up on that radical Islamic crap. Only thing really interesting about the ones from the Ukraine is that its mostly always women.
But then there are also political/historical reasons why this is done much like the whole IRA thing.
Yeah. It certainly isn't anything new, and Beslan was definitely the most infamous of their attacks so far. I've done a little reading on the Chechyan conflict, and holy crap...talk about a clusterf*ck. I bought a book on it by Valery Tishkov, called "Chechnya: Life in a War-Torn Society
". I've only read parts of it, but man...its almost like another world. Another good book that deals with the area and gives more first hand accounts is "The Man Who Tried to Save the World: The Dangerous Life & Mysterious Disappearance of Fred Cuny
". (Cuny was a disaster relief specialist who was asked to create/manage some relief efforts in the Caucasus.)
"You can kind of see why.. Its a shame they don't really talk about that in school
I agree again. It's one of the least known conflict areas, and one of the most disturbing examples of modern warfare in our lifetimes.
