What's happening in Chechnya?

What’s happening in Chechnya?: “It would be a bit like the U.S.S.R. winning the Cold War, and the U.S. seeing Canada and Mexico join the Warsaw Treaty Organization, to be followed by Maine, Washington state and Michigan. On the face of all that, if there were a rebellion in East Los Angeles, and the U.S. Army went in there to stop it and failed, and East L.A. became de facto independent, that would be the analogy with Chechnya.” Michael Urban, professor of politics at the University of California at Santa Cruz, drops a lesson on leadership, domestic & foreign policy, propaganda, global economics, terrorism, communism, democracy, and other myths of our age.
