    Full Scale Islamist insurgency in Dagestan

    What is being described as a full-scale Islamist insurgency is building in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan.

    Russia recently ended its decade-long "counter-terrorism operation" against separatist rebels in the neighbouring republic of Chechnya, but the fighting has spilled into other regions.

    Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Dagestan.

    Uhm, I guess you didn't get the memo (wow, that is such a lame saying) that this site isn't solely for debates. I'm sure I speak for other members on the site when I say that I appreciate people posting various news stories that I may have otherwise missed. The posting of a story is often times what leads to various comments that frequently go off on tangents where a debate does ensue.

    Please refrain from posting these types of messages. Also, please liberally use the term 'we're' when attempting to refer to the members of this site, because you sure as hell don't speak for me.

    Just to preempt your probable reply, this isn't a contradictory of hypocritical statement from the one I made above when I said "I'm sure I speak for other members of this site" because I am in fact sure that I do I speak for them. You on the other hand signify that you represent everyone with your usage of 'we're'.

    Russia unlike the crybaby west though won't give up. May take them 100 years again to quiet this region but they will do it.

    Hmmm…maybe you should go over help your commie friend’s seeing as you seem to admire their tenacity.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I admire the fighting abilities of the SS.
    Doesn't mean I support their ideology.

    Russia isn't Communist anymore btw.


    Russia today compared to the west today is the difference between a bear led by a real leader and a wet hanky led by a joke.

    On the contrary we,re in the process of withdrawing [god willing] from a nation we,re occupying because the locals want us to leave. Theres nothing weak willed or whatever about that its just common sence. I think the Russian government could learn something there.

    And neither will work against the Islamists... These animals have any quantity of nations, I guess they want the whole world ???
    IMO, only education will work, and this will take time..
    I cannot understand why any sane man would want to be an Islamic terrorist ???
