19. stickdog, I think the bigger mystery is "Who did this?". So does Putin...
Some want to cut off a juicy morsel from us while others are helping them.

They are helping because they believe that, as one of the world's major nuclear powers, Russia is still posing a threat to someone, and therefore this threat must be removed.

And terrorism is, of course, only a tool for achieving these goals.

From the Putin Speech: Who is the "someone" (para 2) ?

Also see:
Chechen separatist spokesman Akhmed Zakayev said the militants were not Chechens. The hostage takers were Ingush, Ossetians, Russians, but not Chechens, said Zakayev, once a spokesman for Chechnyas separatist president Aslan Maskhadov.
But of course, their demands have all to do with Chechnya, so whatever has happened, the Chechens will be held responsible. Thats what Im afraid of, he said on Britains Channel 4 television. agencies.
