Russia "to kill Iraq kidnappers"

#3
Was anyone ever in doubt that as soon as this atrocity happened, a dozen very useful looking gentlemen with Russian accents and Arab appearance wouldn't be arriving?

Say what you will , Russian SF and SiS do not screw about when it comes to getting a little payback.

....and they won't be going for the little cogs either , there'll be a person of interest hanging by their thumbs shortly, and I don't think they care less who they upset when they do.

Here here, Good luckski to the Russians, they have my support. I hope they do find the people responsible and dish out some Eastern justice.

I seem to remember the Societs having a similar problem in the Lebannon in the 80's when Westerners were being whiped at a steady rate. A story appeared that the Sov's picked up someone high ranking in the inplicated party, beheaded him and delivered the head to Man in charge of said party with the message that every single member of said party's upper ranks would get the same treatment unless the Sov's people were released that minute. Strangely the Sov's never had the problems we did after that.....

Lesson 101 Big Boys rules........We keep forgetting that.

Hmm I heard that too from a rather connected source long ago only it was the blokes family as well (only the over 16's mind).

I think it's what you call a robust foreign policy, and I'm very much for it on an instinctive level.

You've got to wonder quite how well it has worked, however, what with Chechnya still grinding on nastily in the background. Maybe the foreign connection to that particularly nasty bit of counter-insurgency will give them an in where we don't...

In regard to the Lebanon incident, I'd heard head and testes....

However. It would appear that despite certian possible "urban legend" variations that it's unwise to feck with these people.

I await the outcome with interest.

I hope the Russian SF do a better job than they did in Beslan or the Moscow theatre seige.
Despite the obvious shortcomings of both operations, it's probably safe to say that the level of recidivism amongst the perpetrators is likely to be negligible.
