Zakayev Update

Latest extradition attempt... this time from Belgium.  Unfortunately, rather than laughing in the Russians' faces, as every other European country has done in the past, the Belgians have caved.

My knowledge of European Union law is limited.  However, I suspect that the only thing this will accomplish is to prevent Akhmed from meeting with the European Parliament.  This may have been the Russians' ultimate goal, but who can say for sure?
