Feb 1, 2011 Full story: Gulf Times

Neiba scrapes out a meagre income selling soil-caked clumps of wild garlic she picks in the forests of Russia's poorest province - an occupation a growing Islamic insurgency has made increasingly hazardous.

The nations of the Caucasus deserve self-determination, democracy, human rights, economic and political egalitarinism and freedoms, rule of law--which they will never get from imperialist Russia.

The sooner the Russian imperialists are out, the better.

The people of the caucacus are becoming radicalized against Putin and his methods in dealing with this problem. His agenda is to "clear cut" the whole area to protect his billions of dollars invested in the region. Investments used for corruption and for the world's rich elite. Putin does not think in common sense terms, but uses brutal methods instead. For each innocent muslim his troops kill, it creates ten more radicalized radical. In counter insurgency terms, it takes ten regular soldiers to contain just one enemy guerrilla.
Once this insurgency army of muslims has grown into a sufficient organized strenght, it will be unleashed in this and other areas of russian control. Putin under estimates his enemy.
And the current weak state of the Russian military, will not be able to stop it in the final analysis based on the russian and Putin's current tactics of brutality to the innocent muslims in the region.

The purpose of this post, foolish one, is to bring out that the islamist problem is still a serious problem, but it seems that your kremlin has it's attention deverted away from the problem.
Islamists are never to be dismissed. That is what they want. I dislike islamists probably more than you do.
I bet if you asked any one of your friends if they consider islamists a threat now, they would be more occupied thinking of Russian politics or simply dismiss the threat. And that will probably be their mindset, until another surprise bombing. And, I bet your security people, cops, etc. are rather relaxed in performing their duties as well.
