Wrong , when the Chechens saw the Ambulance coming up to take the dead bodies they thought it was a attemt to rush the building, so 1 of the terrorists blew him self up then the children in closest started to run out of the building, and thats when the Chechens started firing on the Children then our forces, went in and finished them off.

Ive read some reports saying that the Russians rushed the school, starting firefights ant killing many of the children, considering russia's past in chechenia and other places this doesnt sound to unbelievable. Of course none of the countries who know this thru intelligence will release it because the whole Beslan incedent was like winning the lottery for Bush and his war on terror supporters.
Just adding i think anyone who is responsible (and none of us truly know) for this massacre was sick and wrong, muslim or russian, but i seriously doubt the news reports of the day.

Spetsnaz had a bullet in the head of every one of those terrorists
What I do think is wrong though the gas they used, they should have picked something better.

Spetnaz did not take those children hostage. The Chechin rebel terrorists did. Before this I kinda supported the Chechen cause, they seemed to be fighting the good fight for independence, then they do this barbarity. Want to know the difference between a freedom fighter, and a terrorist? Look no further then that school in Beslan.
