Islamic insurgents including a suicide bomber stormed Chechnya’s Parliament on Tuesday, leaving six people dead and 17 injured in one of the most brazen attacks on the provincial capital in months, officials said, according to the AP.

Yes, you still have a reason to be thankful you live in the United States, which is at least relatively unscrewed with most of the time.

The Kremlin-backed Chechnya administration just seems to have a hard time keeping Islamic separatists from trying to blow up Parliament.

This attack was especially gruesome.

Tuesday’s attack left a grim scene around the Parliament building, with body parts and a decapitated corpse lying on the ground near shattered window glass. Interior Ministry special forces paced the area in camouflage fatigues, wielding grenade-launching Kalashnikov rifles.

WTF? Happy Tuesday morning, Chechnya!

One militant set off a bomb Tuesday at the gates of the Parliament complex in Grozny, the Chechen capital, killing himself and wounding others, Chechen police spokesman Ramzan Bekkhoyev told The Associated Press.

Six people were reported dead with many others injured.

Chechnya’s Parliament still held session today, which tells you something about how they don’t feel like taking this sort of crap anymore.
