Seems like the latest reports will prove me right. Any of you heard the poll conducted about the freedom of press? geuss who was in the top ten of
most press free countries? Yes you geussed it right, Europe!
Number one being Norway followed by Finland, the Netherlands and a whole bunch of other European countries!
Wanna know where the US was placed?
A measily 17th place and merely due to the imprisonment of journalists in the US who didn't want to reveal their sources of information. Hows that
for freedom of press hey, stick them journalists in jail for not revealing their sources! Great freedom that is, what a laugh!

And as for the Russian hostage situation images I've seen have proven me right about anything I mentioned.
I've seen images of inside the theater and none of the hijackers with explosives had been shot. They simply died just sitting there. The ringleader
even had his bottle of cognac in his hands when he died from the gas.
No hostages have been killed by gunfire and the only one killed by gunfire is the woman who was shot at the first day. All the rest were killed by the
Of all that I could see on the images is that 20 terrorists have been shot by the Russians while they stormed the theater. The women and man that were
sitting in the theater did not die of gunshots but where killed by the gas instantly. Believe me, on the news over here in Europe, yes you know the
unbiased news, we were shown all bodies (a statement was first made that these pictures might be upsetting) while the french cameraman filmed the
entire theater. Geuss you didn't get to see that overthere did you :-)
So who's right now hey? Instant death because of the gas, russians survived albeit with a struggle. The muslims died instantly with bottles of cognac
clutched in their hands, explosives not even detonated.
To even further balance it for you who think this was justified. At the start of the hostage taking one woman was shot. Later the Russians stormed the
building and injected gas. Result 115 died as a result of the gas and none died because of the terrorists shot them.
If the Russians really cared about their people they would have let the doctors know what gas they used so they could treat the people in hospital who
are still suffering today from the effects of the gas.
Geuss not many of you know that the fact that Russia did use a nerve agent which is prohibited by the nonproliferation treaty on bio-chemical warfare
and as such they would be in violation of that treaty. The word Iraq springs to mind.
I wonder if the United States will, in accordance with their stance towards Iraq, demand clearification from Russia.
And to tell it was to only thing to do....uhmm lame cop-out ring a bell. Killing 115 of their own people perfectly well knowing what the gas might do
and then in the aftermath not even mentioning this to the doctors. This was all powerplay, nothing more, nothing less. Russia didn't want those
Chechens to have their way and no hostage would be this important and is simply another victim in their way to crush the opposition.
