    Which I agree with.

    The sooner people realise that these people are fundamentalists and can not be negotiated with, the better.

    This goes from Hamas, the Chechen rebels, Al-Qaeda etc.

    Incidently were the IRA religioulously motivated (ie Cathlotic v Prodsents in Ireland and Northern Ireland)?

    158 children taken to hospital so far.

    The continuing gunfire and explosions are very worrying.

    You can call them what the hell you want, but be prepared to pay with a kneecap or two.

    It's NOT the same at all - although religion is 'sort-of' the root cause, you've got to start thinking more in terms of words such as 'sectarianism' or 'Orange', or 'Boyne' and a host of causes which go back to the royal families of Europe using countries and peoples as their own personal playthings, riding roughshod over all and sundry, hi-jacking religions or even inventing their own.

    The only thing in common with the Islamist Fundamentalists is that no cause based upon a lie is justifiable - and all religions, by their very nature, are lies (but that's another story).

    But if the negotiations had taken place early on, would we have had a peaceful ending to this mess?? Would this have happened at all??

    (I agree with your viewpoint, im just throwing some thoughts into the air)

    But The Terrorists would have demanded too much, and in the end they may get what the wanted and still kill the kids.

    this is Sad

    Correctomundo.

    There is but one demand - an independent Chechnya, which (rightly or wrongly, that's not my decision to make) was never going to happen by any violent means.

    Looks like the school will be demolished and now they are saying it will take up to a week to bury the bodies.

    I wouldn't suggest that martyring him would be a great plan.

    This conflict has been rumbling on in the West's blind spot for 13 years now, the fact that it takes something like this to bring it back into the public eye does make you wonder about the news/political circuits.

    I just wonder what Russia have against Chechnyan independence?
