Terrorism in Russia

This story, for whatever reason, just hasn't made the headlines much. I'm sorry to say this is true even in the blogosphere. But it appears the standoff between the Russian forces and Chechen seperatists is coming to a close. I also find it interesting that several members of the terrorist group (make no mistake, that's what they are) are arabs. When you see countries all over Europe and Asia capitulating to terrorist groups, it is refreshing to see a nation stand against it. I'm by no means a fan of Putin, or his tactics; but I gaurentee that in the future any terrorist group will think twice before taking on Russian forces.
