  Russia’s Islamic revolt is spreading

Some veteran anti-Communists in America actually support this Russian jihad; they're still fighting the last war. Meanwhile, even the Russians themselves, with their support for Iran, don't seem to recognize the implications of what is going on. From the Times Online:

THE diehard gang of Muslim extremists responsible for last week’s attack on the southern Russian city of Nalchik consisted mainly of local militants intent on creating a strict Islamic state independent of Moscow, according to security sources in the region. It provides alarming evidence that far from dying down — as claimed by President Vladimir Putin — the bloody Chechen conflict is spreading.

“Most of the militants who were killed and those caught alive are local,” said an officer with the Nalchik anti-terrorism police unit.

The onslaught, which turned the town of 280,000 into a war zone, was the most daring raid by Islamic militants since last year’s Beslan school siege in which 330 hostages were killed. It came less than a month before parliamentary elections in Chechnya, hailed by Putin as evidence that the region is becoming stable.

New Orleans - Returning home
I've been back in the city for 7 days now and I've wanted to blog about it. Somehow I couldn't. Things are good, at least Uptown.
