Chechen Terrorist Child Murderer Killed

MSNBC prefers to call Shamil Basayev a "warlord", I think it's more than appropriate to refer to the monster who orchestrated notorious terrorist attacks, including the Beslan school massacre of 2004, as a "terrorist":
MOSCOW - Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev, the purported author of modern Russia’s worst terrorist attacks, has been killed, the head of the Federal Security Service said Monday.

Basayev, 41, claimed responsibility for some of Russia’s worst terror attacks, including the seizure of some 800 hostages in a Moscow theater in 2002, the 2004 school hostage taking in Beslan that killed 331, and the seizure of about 1,000 hostages at a hospital in Budyonnovsk that killed about 100.
For once I have to agree with Russian president Vladimir PUtin, who called Basayev's extermination "deserved retribution".
