Just why do the Russians have such a huge obsession over this country? Why are they going to such lengths to try to annex (or keep?) it? Especially considering that they're not going to such effort in order to retain anything in Eastern Europe and they don't have that kind of interest in places like Poland, Checkoslovakia (I probably spelled that wrong), the Czech Republic (if that country doesn't exist anymore then you'll have to let me off the hook, I don't keep up with Eastern European history very well), Transylvania (I know, I know, but I couldn't think of any other Eastern European places), etc. I've heard that historically Chechnya is a part of Russia but I've also heard that historically it was in fact not. So just why does Russia have this huge beef with Chechnya that they don't with anyone else?

Aside from the resources it bought to Russia. A genuine and well-founded fear of it being turned into an Islamic State with Nukes is another factor. It's why Putin is trying to make nice with Iran, who threw their Islamic 'brothers' over board for help with their.. ahh.. 'energy' needs, even though Iran sits on one of the largest reserves of Oil on earth.
