The genocidal killings I mentioned happen to the detriment of Chechnyans.


Don't even try it.  

You cry for the chechens?

We're talking about the same people who thinks its a good idea to take an elementary school hostage and use children for their political goals.

You may have a point when talking of the russian revolution and the transfer of chechens to siberia, but the recent wars?  Those were caused by the chechens themselves by use of terrorism and their brothers from afghanistan.

Holy Balls! I saw that exact same picture on a communist party publication back in Australia. I love the eagle on his shoulder.

If you're talking Politkovskaya,

consider that she was more troublesome to putin dead than she was alive.

Why is this madman even killing journalists who have discovered his bloodthirsty dealings with the natives?


It's the chechens doing this.  You can blame russia as Kady's men are backed by Putin, but there is not many peaceful, rational groups in chechnya to choose from these days.

Kadyrov has been supported by Putin because he has been committed to putting down rival lslamic militants.  He keeps the 'order' in chechnya like a mafia thug.  

Much of the human rights complaints are about his regime and how they operate.  Not what the Russians are doing....at least not directly.

from wiki:

Conflict with Ramzan Kadyrov

In 2004, Politkovskaya had a conversation with Ramzan Kadyrov, then Prime Minister of Chechnya. One of his assistants said to her, "Someone ought to have shot you back in Moscow, right on the street, like they do in your Moscow". Ramzan repeated after him: "You're an enemy. To be shot...."[40] On the day of her murder, said Novaya Gazeta's chief editor Dmitry Muratov, Politkovskaya had planned to file a lengthy story on the torture practices believed to be used by the Chechen security detachments known as Kadyrovites. In her final interview, she described Kadyrov—now president of Chechnya—as the "Chechen Stalin of our days".[41]


However awful and corrupt you believe the russians are amazingly seems to pale in comparison to the behavior of the chechens themselves.  That's the sad part.  

And really what could putin do but to back the Kadys?  What other options were there really?

They couldn't continue with war.

We're are about to do the same thing....negotiating with the taliban.  Sucks.

Stockholm international Peace Research Institute reported that ~

World military expenditures average around $1 trillion a year. That means an astronomical $2 million are spent worldwide on the military every minute, and U.S. military spending accounts for half of this.

A $30 billion, 10-yr plan to provide clean water to the poor of developing world would cost just 10 days of military spending. Eighteen days of military spending yearly could eradicate malnutrition worldwide. Experts believe that $200 million, or about 3-hours of military spending, could wipe out the diseases of diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, measles and polio, which together kill 4 million children every year.


"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children...Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron...Is there no other way the world may live?" ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
