"forgotten" by Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin, and by all Russian politicians from Zyuganov to Kirienko and by Russian journalists. This makes terrorism in Russia by Chechens and international Muslim fundamentalists and a new Chechen uprising inescapable in the future. Therefore, the subjugation of Chechnya is not needful for Russian society or the Russian state. The solution of the Chechen problem is not so much a problem for Chechen society as it is for Russian society. The Chechnya with a weak and, in the eyes of the Chechen populace, illegitimate "occupational" power, the Chechnya seething to throw terrorist groups off its territory, the Chechnya perpetually ready to revolt is too valuable to the Kremlin and the present prime minister for them to let it

go. It is just that Chechnya that the Kremlin and present prime minister need so that they can talk about defending Russia from Chechen terrorists and manipulate public opinion and draw attention away from the corruption scandals in the highest echelons, manipulate the budget, play leading roles in the next presidential election, and so on. Therefore, the current Russian authorities do not allow Chechnya peace or let an orderly and legitimate state form there. For the current Russian authorities, it is much more profitable to start a war in Chechnya, impose semi-military law, maintain an occupational force there and hunt down terrorists in Russian cities than it is to help Aslan Maskhadov and the Chechen people stop the "slave trade" in Chechnya, to set up a legal

authority acceptable to both the Chechen and Russian inhabitants of Chechnya, to put an end to terrorist raids and eliminate the terrorist groups of Basaev, Khattab and others (which Aslan Maskhadov and the Chechens who support him would be fully capable of doing with the support of Russia), restore the completely destroyed material conditions of life there, the health care system, education, etc. The perverse, at first glance, desire of the Russian president, the present prime minister and the military leadership for a military victory and the presence within Russia of a Chechnya hungering for freedom is, unfortunately, completely natural. Such authorities as we have now require a Chechnya in unrest. And all of us-the people of Russia and the people of Chechnya-are being held

hostage to the present Russian authorities and to each other. Essay onWorld War 2 War is one of the most tragic things in our world today. It is even sadder that usually it comes around at least once in our lifetime. In the 20th century alone we have already had two huge wars. These wars were call the World Wars simply because they involved most of the big countries of the world. Many people have died in these wars, especially the Second World War. That is my focus for this essay. The leader of Germany at the time of WW2 and the person who most think started WW2 was a man named Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was born in Austria. By the time that World War 1 started in 1914, he was living in Germany. He served well in the German Army and for that he earned a medal for bravery. At the

end of the war Hitler decided to take up politics. By 1921 he was already the foundingleader of the Nazi party. Hitler was an incredibly racist man and he had a great hate for Jews. By 1933, Hitler gained political power by winning the election. Soon after he made himself absolute dictator, calling himself the Fuhrer which means "Leader". By the end of the 30's he was already sending Jews off too concentration camps to meet a horrible death. I believe that Hitler was one of the greatest causes of World War 2. Although there are many other reasons, he was definitely one of them. Another reason was the Treaty of Versailles. This was the treaty that was signed at the end of World War 1. This treaty outlined the rules that Germany must follow because of their defeat by

Britain and France. Many Germans were angered by the treaty, for most of the rules in the treaty were unfair and Germany lost a great amount of wealth. One of the cruelest reasons for the war was Hitler's racist hate for Jews. He would send them off in cattle cars to places called concentration camps were they would be slaughtered by the thousands. World War 2 was huge and involved a lot of countries. There were thousands of battlefronts and warsites. The two main battlefronts were the battle front between Britain and Germany and the battlefront between the Japanese and the Americans. These battlefronts were split up into smaller battlefronts even still. Many lives were lost in the air, on land and in the sea. Some of the most notable battles were: The Battle of Britain, The
