What is the source of the Chechnyan conflict?

Chechnya is an Autonomous Republic of the Russian Federation and it wants complete independence from Russia. Russia does not want to give them independence because, amongst other things, Chechnya is geographically in the path of a major oil pipeline to the south which is economically important to Russia. Chechnya could probably not stand in the international community because it does not produce anything. The Russian Mafia is said to consist predominantly of Chechnyans. One of Chechnyas neighbours, Dagestan, has similar objectives but has not been so militant about it. Both Chechnya and Dagestan are predominantly Muslim which is a further problem they have with non-Muslim Russia.
