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.

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.

Actually, they've been dealing with that for centuries. Geography matters. N America is geographically shielded. You have to give it to the Russians - the understand terrorism much better. Iraq makes their job harder. They new it would turn into a tug nest in the interim.
