More interesting stuff coming out of Chechnya from RFE/RL. And more proof that the region is a noir film, although this part was kind of like the final gunfight in LA Confidential.
Nothing more to add, really. Just keep on reading this stuff, its about as interesting as a story you're going to find these days. And, somehow, some of the least biased, too. Because unlike in Afghanistan, nobody has a dog they want to win in this fight. Unlike, you know, Afghanistan (Gooooo Gul Agha Sherzai!)
