"I'd prefer a mass conversion of Moslems to non-Islam (Christianity, buddhism, atheism whatever ) , if necessary why not use the force to achieve that noble end ? They must be given a fair chance after all. Why not turn Islam's own sword against itself ?"

are you talking about chechnia? I was talking about specifically chechnia. I know that the word GROZNY means something like "the stubborn" so how do you see it happening?

PC is just around the corner from russia too, if putin wanted to push the button harder in the war we would have no problem. But he's not doing it. After the theater in moscow thing and Beslan they had all the excuses. if he's not moving it means unfortunately that he's not sure about what to do.
