Chechnya and Logic

Robert Bruce Ware does something that no other expert on Chechnya seems to do - using formal logic to answer the question if Illyas Akhmadov, who is recognized as political refugee in the US, is a terrorist or not. His article "Chechnya, Logic and Confronting the "Conventional Wisdom" is published at Untimely Thoughts.
Those who want to go straight to the point can skip three initial passages of the article.

Then for exactly the same logic, since:

a) A terrorist attack is an attack on civilians that lacks a military target.

b) The continuous raids (zachtiska) in Chechnya are also attacks on civilians that lack a military target.

c) Therefore the raids in Chechnya by Federal Forces are terrorist attacks.
