Look to Afghanistan. Many of the fighters there are also Chechnyan. Those folks do a lot of harm to many, many people in the region.

I wonder what'll happen next?

I don't know, after the fiasco in Georgia(the former USSR state, not the sunny southern USA state), and now this mother Russia is still up to it's ankles in problems.

I may be off the mark here but i see the irony of the situation being: that at a celebration of freedom from a tyrannic regime, a world leader is assasinated.
It makes me wonder who was responsible for the action, what the motive was for such an attack (especially now with such chaos going on in the world) and whether we will ever find out the real truth...
Personally I am a bit ashamed because I dont even know where Chechnya is. The changing geography of Russia is something I have paid almost no attention too. I am also kinda pissed, that it takes something like this to happen for me to conjure up the desire to find out.

BTW for those who want to know, here is where Chechnya is.

Chechnya has has a lot of problems.. both internally and with russia.. russia and Chechnya have been going at it for quite some time..

I dont find it Ironic.. more expected really.
given the situation over there plus the fact that if you are going to assasinate someone or commit an act of terrorism.. people like to do it on symbolic days or places or events..

It would be like terrorists killing george bush on the fourth of July..

The irony is it happening on a Major patriotic holiday for them, of course it was designed this way by the terrorists,

Irony: incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result

I dont think it is Ironic given that bombings have happened before on this day and people in generaly expect a terrorist act on patriotic holidays
so if it is expected it cant be ironic

at least to me i guess....
