From Yahoo and AP we have this cheerful end to the story
BESLAN, Russia - The three-day hostage siege at a school in southern Russia ended in chaos and bloodshed Friday, after witnesses said Chechen militants set off bombs and Russian commandos stormed the building. Hostages fled in terror, many of them children who were half-naked and covered in blood. Officials estimated the death toll at more than 200.
Early Saturday, 531 people remained hospitalized, including 283 children — 92 of the youngsters in "very grave" condition, health officials said.
Yeah, this makes me have a lot of sympathy for the Chechen cause. Killing a bunch of innocent children and traumatizing others in order to try and force Russia and the world to view you a your own state.
Well there's a little flaw in your logic there asshats. You have just further enraged the world at large and your support now is virtually nil as far as I'm concerned. To actually take hostage and kill a mass of children for your selfish own desires is despicable and repulsive. I hope all of those involved with this dastardly deeds children end up suffering decades for this.
Just stupid and irresponsible.
There were also numerous reports of children being shot in the back as they fled. What kind of monsters would do such a thing to a kid who just wanted to go to school!

Michelle Malkin and Knight Of The Mind have excellent roundup coverage of this horrible child slaughter.
The chilling angry words from Dave at Ace of Spades just fuels the rage even more.
They forced mothers to choose which of their children would die.
This happens every month. Every month.
These people have turned themselves into monsters. They could not achieve their goals as men and so they became monsters. Having little weapons and less courage, they decided they would fight a poor man's war by arming themselves with horror and viciousness not even seen among animals.
