Make up your own mind. I have.

Chechnya’s enforcers of supposed Islamic propriety have struck again. In the name of combating terrorism, President Ramzan Kadyrov has declared war on what he regards as public indecency. “My dream is for all our women to wear scarves, in accordance with Islamic law,” he told NEWSWEEK recently. To assist in that fight and correct supposedly un-Islamic conduct, he established his own Taliban-style morality police, the Center for Spiritual and Moral Development and Education, last year. For backup, Chechen militias prowl the streets in black cars and black uniforms, on the alert not only for uncovered hair but for short-sleeve T shirts, short skirts, and public displays of affection. Although many Chechen women have accused them of paintball attacks in the past few months, Kadyrov brushes off the charges, blaming “somebody who wants to blacken my politics.”

I'd rather the Muslims have it than the Russkies. What Russia has done to Chechnya is appalling.

Try telling that to the victims of the subway bombings in Moscow. That said, Russians do make a complete hash of things sometimes.
