Originally posted by Aladdin The situation in Chechnya is appalling but somehow public opinion is seldom engaged by the conflict.
In many ways Chechnya is a parallel conflict to the one in the Middle East. The only difference is that Chechnyan attacks are far bloodier, and equally the Russian forces' retaliations make the Israeli army look like a model of restrain (!).
But it seems that opinions are not so polarised in this matter, and atrocities on both sides are 'overlooked' by the West.
Bush, not one to give a flying fuck about the welfare of others, is happy to turn a blind eye to all the Russian atrocities in exchange for Putin's support for the "war on terror."
