The head of Russia's security services immediately pledged to see Putin's order carried out. The Russian government confirmed the four men's deaths this week, after an insurgent group released a video showing two of them being killed.
The group had demanded Russia leave Chechnya and release Muslim prisoners
" However much time and effort it requires, we will work to this end "
Russian security chief, Nikolai Patrushev
As far as i knew Russia has had no forces in Iraq anyway..?

Russian approach, is to hunt those responsible down like prey. (Much like Iraeli Mossad in you saw 'Munich'). They will find those who did the crime (trust me that this they will surely do). They will probably torture and kill them, those that work with them, plan with them, live with them, and know anything about the killings. They will kill them one by one not at the same time, so that the other prey is afraid as it sees its partners go down. Then it will quitely retire. You will not hear it on the news, and you will not know about.

I dont condone torture but otherwise the US government should take notice of what the Russians are doing. The current strategy in iraq will fail. I doubt that anything will change Americans seem to be traped in a single mind set and the current set of leaders in the Whitehouse would screw things up if they were put in charge of a hotdog stand.

All of you are right. No one can f# with us Russians. If someone f#s with us, they will die! We are predators. The terrorists and rebels are the prey. Wipe them out one by one, capture and torture the survivors, and strike terror in the heart of the enemy. The Spetsnaz are particularley good at that. You shoot one bullet at them, they will shoot 1000 back at you. Mercilessly, relentlessly. My message to the terrorists and rebels is back off......................before its too late.
From the article
Separately, the lower house of the Russian parliament approved a statement condemning the killings, and appearing to blame Iraq's "occupying powers".
"The whole responsibility for the situation in Iraq, including guaranteeing the security of its citizens, and also foreign specialists, as before lies on the occupying powers," the statement said.
