The bear will strike at the time and place of their choosing.......and beyond that, they will project power to pre-empt/destroy the groups and states that make this possible. This fight will no longer be an "internal struggle" in Russia.
I see a grand alliance between Russia, the Anglosphere, Israel and India in this, the next great world war.
No, Russia was already way past 911 before this.
Don't leave out parts of Africa --- Nigeria and the Sudan for example. Maybe they're tired of the slaughter they've suffered at the hands of muslims also.
No, Russia's 9/11 were bombings of apartment bulidings in Moscow, invasion of Dagestan, and NATO attack on Serbia. It all took place in 1999.
That is doubtful. They are more European Socialist Pacifists now. They sided with the Canadians and the French, and are not capable of defending themselves any longer.
They had their chance in Iraq. They have had terrorism for years, and little has been done.
They can expect killings and explosions for decades.
On a per capita basis, the terrorists would have had to kill about 1500 for it to be comparable to 9/11.
Russia 144 million (2004 population estimate)
United States 293 million (2004 population estimate)
