The death toll in the Russian school hostage situation grew to over 200 and nearly 350 wounded! Vladimir Putin declared today that the hostage situation, car bombing in Moscow, and the 2 downed airliners were NOT isolated incidents and that Russia is now at war with international terrorists. (BTW, 9 or 10 of the hostage takers were Arabs according to reports.)
Our prayers go out to those who lost loved ones. Unlike Spain the Russian leaders have the strength to identify the real enemy. Hopefully the Russian people will get it too!
