'Chechen trace' in Baghdad. New lies

Publication time: 14 April 2003, 17:32
Even before the invasion of Iraq by British and American troops, we started hearing about the «Chechen trace» in Baghdad. Some Arab newspaper, sponsored by US secret services, spread the information on the eve of the war that «a large group of Chechens arrived in Baghdad to defend Saddam». This report was picked up by Russian mass media right away, and they distributed it across all informational channels that Russia has available. Even the denials of the Iraqi Ambassador in Moscow and of the Vice Premier of Iraq Tariq Aziz were unable to quell that informational stir. Tariq Aziz even reminded that Saddam had spoken against the fight of the Chechens for independence on many occasions, that he was supporting Moscow, and therefore Chechens would never come to Baghdad, and Saddam himself would not let them in.

However, the «Chechen trace» in
Baghdad has still been discovered. This time the Times made its effort. According to the Times’ reports based on the statements made by the command of the coalition forces, several Chechens were allegedly apprehended in Iraq, who were fighting with Fedayeen units. The newspaper claims that the «Chechens» were captured near Baghdad. Their number was not specified.

This report in the British newspaper was accompanied by the emotional background that suits the propagandistic moment. Referring to the
US and British military, the Times mentions the «fanatical behavior» of the detainees. What’s more, the Americans and the British believe that «Chechens» «provided some of the fiercest resistance».

Then the Yastrzhembsky style follows, - the newspaper informs its readers that «Chechens» in
Iraq are called Saddam’s closest servants. Allegedly, they were fighting in civilian clothes and operating under the cover of peaceful civilians, using them as live shields.

In order to reinforce the persuasiveness of prior reports, the newspaper quoted an opinion of the British military, who are conducting interrogations of captured «Chechens». According to them, the «Chechens» studied the tactics of guerilla warfare well.

«I have never seen such fanatical behavior. It was truly chilling», the commander said. «Our machinegun was pointed right at them. They knew they were going to die, but they just kept running at us and shouting, determined not to throw the grenade but to jump on to the tank and detonate it while still holding it», one of the British commanders told the Times. He Times also said that they were not religious fanatics armed with machineguns. They have an idea about combat tactics, and their actions are well-organized. No doubt, someone trained them.

It was not the first such statement that the Western mass media have ever made. During the invasion of
Afghanistan some Western newspapers and agencies were claiming for several months on a row that hundreds of Chechens were fighting in that country, dozens of which were allegedly taken captive. In spite of all these statements however, none of the Chechens was ever shown, whether dead or alive.

Today it is too obvious that the «Chechen trace» in
Iraq has been found exclusively for political purposes. Just as before, it is unlikely that the Western troops will ever show the Chechens to the world. But these reports will leave a trace in the minds of the public before the UN resolution on Chechnya is considered, where Russia is condemned for atrocities against peaceful civilians of Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.

Why and for what purpose such outright lies are being spread? Why the Chechen ethnos, hardly numbering in one million altogether, is under such close scrutiny of the 6 billion of the entire mankind? Why even one Chechen, who could accidentally end up in one country or another, including
Iraq, causes such a panicky reaction? Why 1.2 billion Chinese, 1 billion Hindus, 150 million Pakistanis, 140 million Russians or any other nationalities do not cause such a reaction? How does the tormented and bloodless Chechen nation threaten the world? The nation, which is fighting alone for its physical survival against the 140-million nuclear empire, when the entire so-called «civilized world» is helping Russia in the genocide of the Chechen people.

Let the Americans and the British, let the Times journalists answer: Why are you lying, and what purpose does it serve?
