Green Left Weekly provides news, information, opinion and debate from an
environmental and left perspective.

Featured this week: WEST BACKS CHECHNYA BLOODBATH

After the 1994-6 Chechnya war, the Russian generals convinced both
themselves and the politicians that the reasons for the defeat were
irresolution in the government, and broad popular hostility to the
conflict. Acting now on that theory, they are causing immense civilian
hardship and clearing the way for another military fiasco.
