Quintas Dias 12/04/2014. I had written a post on what could likely happen in Russia as Obama and Putin faced off over foreign policy differences in Syria, and especially in the Ukraine. My supposition was that Putin would be attacked on the domestic front by Jihadis, most likely in Chechnya.
Eerily enough that is exactly what happened today, when Islamicist fighters suddenly opened fire on police in gun battles in Grozny.
We know that many Jihadi fighters in Al Qaeda and in ISIS have ties to Jihadis from Chechnya.
As a side note, the Russian counter-terror force had better learn not to bunch up, and to fire from behind cover, and to not stand out in the open. One RPG scoring a hit on their position in front of that building would have settled their hash instantly not to mention Jidhadis using Dragunov or Mosin sniper rifles firing down at them would have had a field day.
If the Russian intelligence service confirms links between these people and US interests, then look out.
