A worthwhile perspective on Chechen terrorism
A blog I follow from time to time, 'In From The Cold', has an interesting perspective on Islamic fundamentalist terrorism in Chechnya, and what the Boston bombing implies for US security. It's worth reading, as are background details on the two best-known Chechen terrorism incidents: the Moscow theater hostage crisis of 2002 and the Beslan school hostage crisis of 2004.
Forewarned is forearmed. It doesn't mean we won't be killed by terrorists; but it does mean that those who find themselves confronted by terrorism know what's at stake, and know the consequences of surrender.
