The Russians bag their own Zarqawi

Shamil Basayev, the Chechen Muslim mastermind of some of Russia's most deadly terrorist attacks was killed today by Russian military forces. Basayev was behind the Moscow theater hostage crisis in 2002 that killed 130 Russian civilians. In 2004, Basayev was responsible for an even bigger and more deadly attack at a school in Beslan, Russia that killed 331 people, including well over 100 children. Now, I freely admit that the Russians aren't babes in the woods either, but these Chechens are ruthless, and surprise surprise, they are devout practitioners of the Religion of Peace. In the face of such thuggery, the only thing the Russians can do is be ruthless back.

Just in case the horrors of Beslan slipped from your mind, behold an example of Basayev's handiwork at that school turned charnel house. Please only click on the link if your stomach is strong.

Good Day to You, Sir
