Re: “First and foremost, I would like to give the words of support to the people who lost the dearest of all the treasures one can have – children, family members, close friends. I share their grief with them.

You know, there's a joke circulating around Russia these days: what's the gravest peril faced by Russians today? Is it to get abducted by "ugly Chechens"? Nope. It's to be "rescued" by the Spetznats (special forces)!

Think about it: what was the big deal for Putin to yield to Chechen terrorists and free their fellow prisoners (provided they were still alive, of course)? Let's see what would have been the worst-case scenario: the Chechen terrorists release all the children and leave for Chechnya together with Chechen prisoners Putin ordered to set free... So, our merry Chechens got back in Chechnya and resume their "terrorist attacks" on Russian troops, killing a few dozens Russian soldiers... Now compare that to the bloodshed resulting from the opposite policy: hundreds of Russian hostages were killed in Beslan! If Russian policy keeps on that course, one day, on the next hostage crisis, we'll hear that a nuclear missile was fired at the hostage compound to make sure all the "Chechen animals" are killed...
