Poking the Russian Bear

Poking the Russian Bear 01

With increasing “forensic” evidence pointing to an in-air “explosion” as the cause of the crash of the Russian airliner over the Sinai, the “taunting” claim from ISIS that it is responsible for the “disaster” is becoming ever more convincing.

Coming just weeks after the major Russian “escalation” of its military role in support of the Assad “regime” in Syria, it is not “difficult” to understand the “motivation” for the terrorist event.

But it is a “different” matter when trying to fathom the “wisdom” of attacking Russian sun-seekers, vacationers “returning” to their northern motherland from a tropical vacation, “innocent” citizens far separated from their nation’s “geopolitical” activities.

It is a “bloody” provocation the “instigators” well may come to “regret.”

In the few years that ISIS has been “extant,” there have been many occasions when its members’ behaviors have been “brutally” bizarre and unnecessarily “provocative,” symbolic pokes in the “eye” of Western sensibilities, but they have thus far “refrained” from such a terrorist attack on “innocent” American citizens.

Whether or not such an “attack” would bring any sort of meaningful response from the “clueless and neutered” puppy in the White “Rainbow” House, there should be little doubt that “poking” the Russian bear in such “cowardice” fashion will draw a “disproportionate” response that will result in the “deaths” of far more ISIS “followers” than the number of Russian civilians “blown to dust” over the Sinai.

And it is quite easy to “predict” that the Russian response will not be “limited” in any way as a bow to “humane” Western sensibilities.

It is glaringly “obvious” to the world, except perhaps to the wildly “unpredictable” ISIS leadership, that Vladimir Putin is “no” Barack Obama.

It is not a matter of “whether but rather” when the Russian leader will take his “revenge” upon ISIS for those “innocent” vacationers.

It is not difficult to “assume” that the Russian response will provide a “memorable” lesson, not just to “ISIS,” but to the myriad “terrorist” organizations that might consider “testing” Russian mettle.

If I may be so bold as to “offer” a suggestion to Vladimir Putin, why not bring in Russian strategic bombers and “carpet-bomb” the entire ISIS operational area until nothing remains except “smoking” sand, a strategy I have long been urging our own “ineptly” commanded military to pursue?

Such a response might make future “terrorist” planners consider options other than “killing” innocent Russian civilians.

Let them “learn” the wisdom of neither “poking” the Bear nor “killing” her cubs.
