In his address, Putin chose not to specify what terrorist organizations are waging a war against Russia. But in a clearly emotional outburst he revealed that the Kremlin believes some countries could be supporting the terrorist attacks to try to weaken Russia, whose nuclear deterrent they see as a threat .
The efforts to "tear off a big chunk of our country" are being assisted by those who "think that Russia, as one of the greatest nuclear powers of the world, is still a threat, and this threat has to be eliminated."
Putin did not say what countries he was referring to, but he appeared to have Western countries in mind.

The Unseen Moral Syntax
As a philosopher, I am not interested in “conspiracy theories”, the favoured term to invalidate questions about 9-11. I am interested in the deeper question of the life-and-death principles of regulating value systems which connect across and explain social orders. In the wider lens of investigation of the normative regime of a civilisation, the pattern of 9-11 decisions is linked to a larger historical pattern. This larger pattern included U.S. plans prior to 9-11 to invade Afghanistan for long-stated geostrategic reasons of Middle Asia oil, forward military bases, and political axes of control. It included as well the U.S.’s successful strategic plan for Soviet Union collapse a decade before that - a collapse which was precipitated by the multi-billion dollar strategic, financial and armaments support by the U.S. National Security Agency and the C.I.A. of the same Afghanistan fundamentalist factions and warlords as plotted 9-11, including Osama bin Laden. These “moral equivalents of the founding fathers”, as U.S. president Reagan then called them, were U.S.-supported terrorist rings who were also later involved in training, armed support and narcotics-route partnership with the KLA (“Kosovo Liberation Army”) insurrection in Yugoslavia, as well as in Russia’s Chechnya province. Interestingly, it was only when the formerly favoured Taliban faction suddenly shut down over 90% of Afghanistan’s opium production for the global market in 2001, as UN officials confirmed in March 2002, that the Taliban was declared America’s mortal enemy and all its known positions bombed for months on end - while the opium that remained growing was concentrated in the areas controlled by the newly favoured Northern Alliance.
Israeli Army allows Jewish terrorist group to harass Palestinians
Sep 5, 2004, 17:08
Occupied Jerusalem - The Israeli media on Sunday revealed that a para-military Jewish terrorist group has been operating against Palestinian civilians in the West Bank with the knowledge and tacit approval of the Israeli army.
According to the Israeli-state run radio, Reshet Bet, members of the group, known as the "Hebrew Brigade," are armed with automatic rifles and equipped with jeeps and dangerous attack dogs.
Quoting unidentified security sources, the radio said the group is made up of dozens of erstwhile cadres of the Kach movement, the terrorist group founded by Rabbi Meir Kahana and dedicated to the destruction of the Palestinian community in Israel proper, the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

Yes, there are terrorist incidents that have no connection. I don't discuss those because they do not relate. If you really want to understand the nature of this beast, you must start at the beginning with the creation of al-CIAda back in the late 70's. Do some digging, the picture becomes clear.

Another thing I've noticed, on the world terror scene it's been eerily quiet since the end of the RNC convention. I know, call me paranoid - which I'm not - it's just one big cowinkydink...
Mr Putin has also added into this complex mix the spectre of international (by which he means Islamic) terrorism and an accusation that unnamed foreign countries want to break bits off Russia.
Mr Putin has alluded to Russian claims that Islamic terrorism is linked to the attack on the school and other incidents.
He implies that Islamic terrorism not Chechen nationalism is the real enemy.
In the wide-ranging meeting which lasted almost four hours, Putin said he likes President Bush, calling him a friendly, decent, predictable person.
They must be tough on their borders, and tough on seperatism, or they risk breaking up like yugoslavia. Russians understand that NATO/USAns/Zionists cannot defeat them head on, they must destroy them from the outside in.
Russia is surronded, on all borders by USAn bases, with the CIA training terrorists to act like blind pets for them to attack Russia with. And the sick bastards turn around and claim the terrorism happens due to "Russia's poor human rights record". It sounds to me like exactly what had happened in Yugoslavia.
Once you let the shills take your borders, prepare to lose your country in time. Why has Putin let the "buffer regions" in Georgia fall so easy into the USAns hands? Putin now says that Russia has shown it's weakness, RUSSIA HAS BEEN SHOWING ITS WEAKNESS FOR FAR TOO LONG. In all "western analysists" speeches (because the commentater never interupts their pointless ramblings) they pointed out all the states bordering the city of Belsen. They didn't bother to mention big fat Georgia on the border, which has been in the spotlight for quite some time. Remember the "school of Americas" that destroyed south america?
Well you in no doubt know that they've constructed a "school of Caucus" to try and destroy Russia. There's also NATO, no doubt instigating hatred of Russian v.s. Russian. But these bastards are as evil as they are cowardly, and we defeated them in Syria ... it was bloody and somewhat regretful, but once you show you are strong they'll go away for quite some time.

Russia Offers Huge Bounty For Top Chechen Rebels’ Capture
Moscow, Sept. 8 (NNN): Russia on Wednesday offered a whopping 300 million roubles ($10 million) on any information leading to the arrest of Chechen leaders Shamil Basayev and Aslan Maskhadov, alleged masterminds behind the recent school carnage in Beslan in which some 400 people, mostly children were killed.
FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!!!!!!!
SEC SECRET PROBE OF STOCK DEALINGS BEFORE 9/11

SCHOOL TERRORISTS GOT ORDERS FROM ABROAD: PUTIN'S ADVISER
MOSCOW, September 6 (RIA Novosti) - Terrorists who seized a school in North Ossetia's Beslan, September 1, were receiving orders from abroad throughout the three suspense-laden days, says Aslanbek Aslakhanov, President Vladimir Putin's adviser for North Caucasian affairs.
"The men had their conversations not within Russia but with other countries. They were led on a leash. Our self-styled friends have been working for several decades, I deem, to dismember Russia. They are doing a huge, really titanic job. It's clear as daylight that those people are coming up as puppeteers and are financing terror," he said to the Rossia television company, national Channel Two, tonight.

Absolutely excellent and a must read....(Below) especially with the spy scandals breaking, the airline bombings and the school in Russia this week. As most of you know, the events in Russia are increasingly suspicious and Chechnya continues to deny any involvement...it also isn't their style. I'm waiting to hear back from my sources in Russia but its increasingly appearing to be a set-up.
Hostage-taker says notorious warlord ordered attack on school
By Anne Penketh
07 September 2004
One of the captured militants has testified on television that orders to attack the school came from the separatist leader Aslan Maskhadov and the warlord Shamil Basayev.
Testimony from the man, who has not been identified, was broadcast on the government's Rossiya television channel. He said: "We were gathered in the forest, by a man nicknamed Polkovnik [the Colonel], and they said: we must take over a school in Beslan. This assignment, they told us, Maskhadov and Basayev gave the assignment.
Local police may have helped terrorists plan Russian siege
THE militants who seized a school in Russia, killing more than 350 people may have had help from local police, an official admitted yesterday.
RBC, 05.09.2004, Moscow 12:30:23.1, could have had accomplices among police officers, said Valery Andreyev, head of the North Ossetian Department of the Federal Security Service. He said initial investigation of the attackers' route suggested a conspiracy involving the police. At the same time, he did not rule out that the police officers might have been forced to help the terrorists.
[B]A letter to the editor of KavkazCenter.com
Letter to the editor
Dear friends, why the version of experts, -- that it was a provocation orchestrated by Russian secret services, -- has never been voiced in your comments regarding the Beslan tragedy? Even from the edited materials of the Russian mass media you can see the distinctly traced legend, which was prepared in advance and later on corrected in a hurry by unable hands of the local performers, from which it became so absurd and easy to recognize.
The school could have been seized by a group consisting only of FSB (KGB) agents or duped opponents of the Putin regime mixed with special agents.
FSB NO LONGER EXISTS FOR ME
Oppositional Dagestan editions have been talking more and more often about the involvement of Russian secret services in kidnappings in Dagestan. Yasseen.Ru edition reported about irrefutable proofs that FSB (Russian Federal Security Service, former KGB) and GRU (Russian military intelligence, Main Intelligence Directorate) are the ones kidnapping people in the Republic. Just like in Chechnya, they are called “death squads”.
The kidnapped victims are brought to Chechnya, where they undergo severe tortures. The agents are forcing the victims to confess to the crimes that they did not commit. Many of the kidnapped victims disappear forever and never manage to escape. But even those who do survive do not want to make public everything that they had to experience and go through in Chechnya while in captivity by Russian secret services.
But most likely, one of the prisoners of “death squads” who survived had the courage to tell the journalists about everything that was happening to him after he was kidnapped by secret services and brought to the premises of a Russian military base in Chechnya. This story is unique because he himself is a former FSB agent from Dagestan.
Spiegel: No Links Between Chechens and Al-Qaeda
Events in Russia have been in the center of attention in the German press. One of the articles published in the internet version of German weekly Spiegel is called «Secret Services Doubt About Putin’s Thesis on Al-Qaeda’s Role in Activities of Militants in Russia».
For instance, this material mentions that Putin keeps repeating over and over again that Al-Qaeda is involved in these acts on the Russian soil. But international intelligence agencies are casting doubts on the proofs that he brings to back his point of view with. After analyzing published addresses, where unknown groups claim responsibility for acts committed, the experts claim that the addresses were written by persons who only pose as members of such organizations.
Russia still at sea on the identity of school's attackers
REUTERS[ TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 07, 2004 12:06:51 AM ]
MOSCOW: Two days after the bloody end of a hostage crisis that left more than 350 people dead, the identity of attackers who seized a school in the ethnic Osettia remained uncertain.
Shortly after the stand-off reached its bloody finale on Friday, at least two Russian officials said that several of the hostage-takers were Arabs — nine of them, according to an advisor to President Vladimir Putin, or 10, according to the head of the Federal Security Service in North Ossetia.
However, the authorities haven’t publicly presented evidence supporting those claims, which were in line with repeated statements from Putin’s Kremlin that Russia’s military campaign in Chechnya is part of the war on international terrorism.
Leading Russian journalist 'poisoned'

Beslan: Not a Single Chechen Has Been Found Among the Dead Gunmen
valis on Sep 08, 2004 - 04:51 AM
The Guardian 09/08/04: Not a single Chechen has been found among the dead gunmen who took children hostage in Beslan last week, Sergei Ivanov, Russia's defence minister, told the Guardian yesterday. "About half of the 32 terrorists have been identified and we have not yet discovered anyone from Chechnya," he said.

Not a single Chechen has been found among the dead gunmen who took children hostage in Beslan last week, Sergei Ivanov, Russia's defence minister, told the Guardian yesterday. "About half of the 32 terrorists have been identified and we have not yet discovered anyone from Chechnya," he said.
The comment was a clear effort to back up the Kremlin's claim that last week's attack was not a result of Russia's actions in Chechnya.
Pakistani ISI: Putin tells 9-11 funder Pakistan & ISI: Eliminate finance for terrorism!!
valis on Sep 07, 2004 - 08:38 PM
Russia is apparently linking Pakistan to an international terrorist network that Putin believes was behind the attack on a school in Beslan in North Ossetia that left over 350 people, including some 160 children, dead and around 400 injured.
