Few Chechen immigrants make it to U.S.

Apr 19, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Reporter

There are probably fewer than about 200 Chechen immigrants in the United States, and most of them are settled in the Boston area, as many U.S. cities have refused to accept asylum applicants from the war-torn area of southern Russia, says Glen Howard, president of the Jamestown Foundation.

The Brits have the Gurkhas and by all rights, Americans should have such a class of mercenaries as well. Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia got to them first.

America should adopt them and give them a chance. Chechens fits with americans better than with russian.

Chechens fighting against Russia isn't called terrorism. It's called self defense.

This unique characteristic has resulted in a trend towards blurring the distinction between organized crime and terrorists groups and has confused many observers as to the Obshina's overall motivations. It is still not entirely clear whether they are more interested in creating an independent nation-state or in perpetuating regional instability so that they might continue to profit from the drug trade and other criminal activities.

So now I know where I don`t want to go when I`m in USA.

I don`t have any illusions about Yanks, they associate Russians with Chechens and backwards.

I guess local people will consider Russians as bombers from now.

That would be easier for Putin to do if American officials would stop to advocate Chechenian angels.
