Putin rejects 'child-killer talks'

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3633668.stm

He added: "Why don't you meet Osama Bin Laden, invite him to Brussels or to the White House and engage in talks, ask him what he wants and give it to him so he leaves you in peace?

"You find it possible to set some limitations in your dealings with these bastards, so why should we talk to people who are child-killers?"

Putin rejected a public inquiry and the official Chechen rebel leader, Aslan Maskhadov, has condemned the seizure of the school.

Well if you trust Putin 100% it's ok to follow his course, i'm just critical if he simply abuses the Terroristic attack against this school for his personal agenda with Chechenia which has a bloody history.

I'd have no problems negotiating with child-killers if I thought it could save lives, even though I doubt these people had terms I would accept. Putin makes it sound like it's a matter of principle. Principles like these get people killed.

But by 'negotiating' it proves that they got your attention and in that way their deeds were successful. I don't believe in rewarding fiendish behavior

Good thing Putin prevented them from getting the world's attention then.

I know this might be um...pounced on and I in NO WAY condone what happended. And I don't agree in the use of terrorism obvoiously. But why is it that Russia just won't let Chechnya have thier own ethnic independence?

A good question for a different thread. When should a group be able to secede from a country to form their own? Why didn't it happen in the US?

Do you think this will be a final definitive solution? Would u guarantee 100% that such terrorist attacks will never happen again? If you guarantee that, I will agree at once.

Good point. Many times I've seen and heard Americans say 'why don't you just let them go' but the US government didn't let the South go when they wanted to be their own country in the Civil War

Russia has let a LOT of former Soviet republics go free, and I think the reason they aren't letting this one go is that perhaps they see it as too unstable and too dangerous to have its own sovereign gov't with power to declare war, get WOMD, etc., and from the looks of things they could be right. If Chechens wanted their independence, they went about it the wrong way and have ruined all their chances now with their digusting terrorist attacks. I really do not blame the Russians for whatever action they take now!

Good grief, you're not giving Putin carte blanche in Chechnya are you?
