Russia's forever war in the Caucasus

This post is taken from Petger Hodge's, The Strategist, which follows on very nicely from my previous post concerning Russian train attacks spreading to western countries. The post starts...

Luke Harding on the brutal conflict between Russia and Muslim separatists in the North Caucasus: "The misfortune of the four garlic pickers was to have unwittingly strayed into a 'counter-insurgency operation' conducted by Russian forces in the densely wooded border between Chechnya and Ingushetia. The soldiers, apparently looking for militant rebels who are waging their own violent campaign against the Russian state, came across the unarmed group, brutally killing them amid the picturesque massif of low hills." An insightful analysis of this "forever war".
