    Meh, challenging is fine. I was challenged several times in this thread earlier and was fine it with because nobody put words in my mouth or copped an attitude. But it's all good. I just need to adjust to the change in attitude that this thread has taken.

    No where in that article does it mention Chechens targeting the United States. Al-Queada is helping the Chechen versus Russia.

    I'm impressed with Uncle Ruslan's attitude toward all this.

    Well, the Afghans had no reason to hate the US either.

    But, it does show a connection between Chechn extremists and AQ. Do the math. Events of late purdy much prove you wrong.

    I'm not so much impressed as I just feel for the guy. His nephews just attacked innocent people which means that not only are they (obviously) affecting the victims of the attack, but they are also hurting their family, their religion and their homeland who now have to deal with being demonized for their actions. His whole world has been turned around in a matter of days. I can't imagine. I guess I am somewhat impressed that he's been able to articulate his thoughts so soon and been willing to denounce his family members' actions when, before today, he thought of them just as his nephews.

    Afghans as a majority don't, but the Taliban certainly do.

    I'm impressed that he isn't making excuses, like we see so many times. He recognizes that they committed a horrific act and believes that they should pay for their crimes.

    A connection and cooperation with AQ doesn't mean that they ever wanted to directly attack the US. AQ has targeted and helped causes that have NOTHING to do with the US before.
