Not sure if this is 'War on Terror' forum material or 'World Event' material.

We're going to do it again, says man behind Beslan bloodbath

By Nick Sturdee

THE Chechen rebel leader who masterminded the Beslan school siege last autumn plans more such operations, despite his apparent remorse over the deaths of more than 330 people — half of them children — in the North Ossetia attack.

In his first interview since that bloodbath, Shamil Basayev says that he is in a state of shock over what happened, but blames the Russians for precipitating the bloody end of the siege. Mr Basayev, Russia’s most wanted man with a $10 million bounty on his head for numerous attacks, said he is willing to stand trial for his actions, but does not renounce his war with the Kremlin or attacks on Russian civilians.

Mr Basayev said that he originally planned to seize one or possibly two schools simultaneously in either Moscow or St Petersburg, but lack of funds forced him to pick North Ossetia, a “Russia garrison in the North Caucasus”, and thus the root of all things bad in war-torn Chechnya, with the ‘silent consent of (the North Ossetian) population.’

He says his intention was to offer the Russian leadership no chance of achieving a “bloodless resolution” to the siege, forcing it to stop the “genocide of the Chechen people”. He says he never thought the Russian leadership would be willing to oversee the death of children, but says that he was “cruelly mistaken” and that he was “not delighted by what happened there”.

He claims that the collapse of the roof of the school gym was the result of flame-throwers used by Russian special forces, not explosives placed by the hostage-takers.



*********************************************
Basayev basically said that he didn't want the children to die, but
I remember reading survivor stories from the children saying that
his people shot children in the back as they tried to escape and that
the terrorists raped and murdered the older girls that they had taken
hostage. If he didn't want children to die, he wouldn't have rigged
the entire place to blow up like he did. I tend to lean towards the
Chechnyan side of things in their fight with Russia, but listening
to this guy makes me sick to my stomach.

But you can listen to your presidents lie to you ok?

Just checking.. other wise you'd have had to have spent the whole of the inauguration speech in the toilet.

Corinthas ... how do you get from the discussion on Basayev and his
statement that they are going to take over Russian schools again, to
bashing America and our presidents?? (Reeeeeeeeeeeeeaching....
Streeeeeeeeeeeeeeetching. Trying like heck to find some way of
getting anti-american digs in) Come on now ... try to stay
focused on the topic of Basayev, Chechnya and Russia, and the
threat to take over Russian schools.

I was respoonding to your statement listing to this guy makes me sick to my stomach.

So I was wondering how you fared when this other guy (who makes me sick to my stomach as well) was on national TV spitting poop of about the same consitency and color as this beslan guy.


So i was wondering does your crap detector only work on foreign terror-types or does it detect domestic poop as well?

OFF TOPIC but I'll answer -

My crap detector absolutely works domestically. I detected
MAJOR CRAP in John Kerry's flip flops and his trash talk about
being a Vietnam hero (3 months, 3 self induced scratches and out).
I voted for John McCain in the 2,000 primaries because I couldn't
stand G.W.'s trip to Bob Jones University. In 2004 - given the choice of
Kerry Krap vs W Crap ... W crap stinks less.

Now .. back on topic of Russia, the school children and the
Chechnyan threat to them.

He says he never thought the Russian leadership would be willing to oversee the death of children.

Ok I see. In his feeble little mind it was the Russian leadership that caused the deaths of all those poor children not his barbaric group. All this after saying “his intention was to offer the Russian leadership NO CHANCE of achieving a bloodless resolution to the siege. Hopefully the Spetsnaz will get a hold of him soon.




He claims that the collapse of the roof of the school gym was the result of flame-throwers used by Russian special forces, not explosives placed by the hostage-takers.

Out of the two I’m going to have to go with explosives for $400 Alex.
