There has been two days of fighting around the second largest city in Chechnya, Gudermes. Yesterday, some 300 rebels attacked and fighting continued. Two generals and six colonels were killed when their helicopter was brought down by a portable surface to air missile. At least ten soldiers have been killed in the fighting, and many more wounded. The Chechens claim to control part of the city. The army says at least 17 rebels have been killed.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
