    Islamists now in Syria could very well take Assad's poison gas to Russia's Islamists!
    Reuters via Huffington Post on March 6:

    MOSCOW/BEIRUT, March 6 (Reuters) - Flanked by almost 20 men with rifles, Omar Abu al-Chechen kneels on a carpet and delivers a rousing speech urging fellow Muslims to support the 'jihad' against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. .... Syrian rebels confirmed separately that he is in Syria and the leader of the brigade.
    After hearing Howard Dean mention "Dagestan" on MSNBC yesterday, I searched for the latest out of Dagestan and found that it's the home of one of the Boston Marathon bomber's father. (It's also on the shore of the oil-rich Caspian Sea.) Just this year, there's been a heap of trouble with Islamists:
    A wedding with Islamist flags was stopped, attacks had killed 9, other attacks killed 4 and injured 44, terrorists shot a rabbi, 5 killed in a separate incident. Those are all this year. Dagestan is on the coast of the Caspian Sea in far southwest Russia -- not that far from Syria as it turns out.
