    Russia deals with Muslim terrorists the way they ought to be dealt with.

    I do NOT regard Imam Shamil as a 'terrorist', but Tom Wolsey presumably would.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shamil,_3rd_Imam_of_Dagestan

    "After his capture, Shamil was sent to Saint Petersburg to meet the Emperor Alexander II.
    Afterwards, he was exiled to Kaluga, then a small town near Moscow. After several years
    in Kaluga he complained to the authorities about the climate and in December, 1868
    Shamil received permission to move to Kiev, a commercial center of the Empire's southwest.
    In Kiev he was afforded a mansion in Aleksandrovskaya Street. The Imperial authorities
    ordered the Kiev superintendent to keep Shamil under "strict but not overly burdensome
    surveillance" and allotted the city a significant sum for the needs of the exile.
    Shamil seemed to have liked his luxurious detainment,..."
    --Wikipedia

    Russia treated Shamil more humanely than the USA tends to treat its detained Muslim 'combatants'.
    So does Tom Wolsey want 'Muslim terrorists' to be given 'luxurious detainment' by the USA?

    In my view, Russia showed foresight in treating its captured great enemy Shamil with mercy.
    If Russia had tortured or executed Shamil, it would have incited his followers to take up arms again.

    Russia has a great tradition in chess as well as in literature and music.

    Why would they be lining up to leave such a paradisiacal wonderland?
    That makes no sense. 😀
