    I've been watching Russia Today and reading google translated versions of Russian newspapers and there is a definite effort in Russia to use this to besmirch Chechyans who resist them and to get Americans to feel the same towards Chechyans.

    •  If we can resist the media's siren song (0+ / 0-)

      and refuse to stoop to stereotyping or demonizing/idealizing either the Chechens or the Russians, we can resist being provoked into even greater terror hysteria in 2014 when some nut case will very likely try to bomb the Sochi Winter Olympics.

      That's why it's a good idea to discuss the Boston affair calmly, with nuance, without prior ideological assumptions.
