in response to reader comment: Russian mistakes or Western Chechnia

You have a deep knowledge of what happens in russia, that's such a vast country and still hidden that it seems impossible to understand fully.

I sometimes talk to russian people and they all think chechnia is a lost cause and they despise all the moslems there, they don't even care about the (few?) natural resources in caucasus, the pain is more than the gain. Actually if one good thing can be said is that they are not afraid to speak loud about how low they think of the moslems. Is it because slavic people are more racists? If being racists is telling like it is, more people should be racists.

I am not aware of how many moslems there are in chechnia but you would agree that there are only 2 options. Bulldozing the whole place or give them their land (and that land only) and deport all the russian muslims there. Then LOCK the borders and close all kinds of relationships with it.

It's a comparable situation with mindanao (philippines), pattani (thailand) and other relatively small areas where local non muslims are constantly suffering....

What would you suggest?
