Shamil Basayev is dead.  We belong to God and unto Him we return.  When Aslan Maskhadov died, I was too choked up to even post about it. That was the end of any hope for Chechnya. Basayev… well, he’s dead now.  Don’t speak ill and all that.  Still, I’ll point you to what I wrote about him and his “contributions” to the Chechen cause previously.

In a related obituary, Sobaka Magazine has closed down.  Now there’s a crying shame.
