Vladimir Putin vows 'total annihilation' of terrorists after Volgograd bombings
The Telegraph ^ | 31 Dec 2013 | Roland Oliphant

Posted on 12/31/2013 8:51:55 AM PST by MarkBsnr

Vladimir Putin has vowed to pursue terrorists to “total annihilation”, in his first public comments since the Volgograd suicide bombings. In his traditional New Year's Eve address, which was broadcast at midnight from the Far Eastern city of Khabarovsk, (5pm in Moscow), he praised Russia’s unity in the face of both terrorism and natural disasters and promised to continue an unrelenting fight against the bombers. “In the past year we have faced problems and serious challenges including the inhuman terror attacks in Volgograd and unprecedented disasters in the Far East,” he said. “Dear friends, we bow our heads in memory of the victims of these terrible attacks. We will strongly and decisively continue the battle against terrorists until their total annihilation,” he said.

Mr Putin earlier provoked a storm of condemnation on the Russian internet on Sunday after the message broadcast an hour earlier in Kamchatka, Russia’s most easterly timezone, made no mention of the attacks.

The second speech was quickly recorded at a reception for victims of devastating floods that struck Khabarovsk and other Far Eastern cities earlier this year. His comments after Volgograd began to bury its dead and the death toll from the suicide blasts continued to rise.

Do not poke this bear with a stick. Bad advice to follow. The toll in behind closed doors is going to be fearsome.

I remember a story about the cold-war soviets havinng one of their people kidnapped for ransom- The soviets responded by tossing on of the terrorists into a furnace live - with the promise of more until their man was released

He was released and it never happened again.

It’s a weird world where I find myself rooting for the Russian Leader

I'm worried about the Olympics next month. This is Putin's masterpiece..and the terrorists know that disrupting it with a bomb(s) would dive him crazy...they have to be targeting it.

Security's gonna be a nightmare, and the Russians will be very heavy handed about it..

Makes Obama look like a girl yet again. After Boston, he said what exactly? “Uhhhh.... If I had a son...”

Putin’s immediate response was to deploy Cossack volunteers. (note: Cossacks, NOT Kossacks, who are obese left wing internet trolls). He deloyed the Cossacks with dogs and orders to hunt down the terrorists if they were still in the city. We can assume the Cossacks would have meted out their own street justice which is what they’re known for.
Excellent stuff.

This has the same ring as Hitler threatening the Jews because they were direct threats to his Reich. We can look for a KGB-like force to start beating on doors in the night.

excellent post, esp. comment that Putin makes Obama look like a girl - because he does. I don’t think obama has enough testosterone to grow hair on his chest, never mind deal w/terrorists on any logical level.

There are many variants of that story, but here is one:

http://suite101.com/a/the-kgb-counter-terrorism-operation-in-lebanon

“In October 1985 Alpha Group was tasked with a counter-terrorism hostage-rescue operation in Beirut Lebanon. Four Russian diplomats had been kidnapped there by a fundamentalist Islamic group which called itself the Islamic Liberation Organization, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. It has been speculated that this hostage-taking was revenge for Russia’s support of Syria which was engaged in the shelling of Islamist militants in the Lebanese city of Tripoli. They threatened to kill the hostages one at a time unless the Soviets pressured it’s ally in Damascus to put a stop to attacks on the militants in Tripoli.”

“When Alpha arrived on the ground they found that one of the four hostages had already been shot in the head and left in a trash dump. Alpha Group quickly responded by doing something which sent a very clear and unambiguous message to those hostage-takers. Through their knowledge of who the hostage-takers were they tracked down and located one of their kinsmen and proceeded to castrate him and then send on the dismembered body parts to the hostage-takers! But not only that, with that they also sent a note indicating they knew some other relatives of the hostage-takers who could also be hurt in similar ways.”

“Seeing how serious the Russians were the hostage-takers promptly released these hostages — dropping them off near the Soviet Embassy. No more Russians were taken hostage in Lebanon for another twenty years as a result of the Alpha Groups ruthlessness when it came with dealing with those people.”

My vote: The Russians should carpet bomb every known terrorist training camp in the world, as much as possible simultaneously, and then ask the CIA/NSA (informally, not going through State or the White House) for a list of locations they missed.

I wouldn’t worry. If the Muslims (a.k.a. terrorists) had a bigger plan I doubt they would’ve tipped their hand in advance. Why not just spring the plan at the actual Olympics?

But then again, they’re insane. So anything is possible.

I understand that Saudi Arabia bragged (through one of their “Princes) that they now control Chechnia and that they (SA) are ticked off about the way Russia is treating Syria.
I would not be surprised to see some high value targets seriously damaged in both Saudi and Chechnia. Putin may not be a poster boy for freedom but he won’t be PC over those he believes are hurting Russia. SA can be badly hurt by the “untimely” release of Russian oil and gas. Chechnia could get a taste of what the Ukraine was force-fed as the holdomor.
(Getting old has some strange side effects. I’m not sure of the spelling of many of the words I just typed but I think I was able to make my point. Sorry.)

It has been said that two thousand years ago a Roman citizen could walk across the Roman Empire free of the fear of molestation. Cloaked only in the protection of the words civis Romanus...I am a Roman citizen.

When someone like Putin says, "We will strongly and decisively continue the battle against terrorists until their total annihilation...” I would look for total annihilation of terrorists.

Sure is. What's worse, while our former enemies are fighting AQ, our leadership armed and supported AQ in Libya and Egypt, and wanted to do the same in Syria.

“Vladimir Putin has vowed to pursue terrorists to “total annihilation”, in his first public comments since the Volgograd suicide bombings”

He’s much more believable when he says things like this than our own so called leader

Anyway, it is always impressive what a good leader can accomplish, compared to those who held a similar position for the same amount of time.

I know what you mean. Who ever thought this day would come? We all know how it would play out if what's happened in Russia were happening here. The words "total annihilation" would never come out of O's mouth, not when it comes to terrorists anyway.

A more graphic description of the “dismembered body parts” sent to the ILO is contained in, I recall, Victor Sheymov’s book, Tower of Secrets. The castrated penis was stuffed in the mouth of the severed head of the terrorist's relative and then delivered to the ILO.

Well we know who is friends are: politicians, lobbyists, celebrities, multimillionares and billionaiires, socialists / progressives, lefties, radical Islamists, etc

Pretty much everyone else who has to really work for a living, is Christian and has had to endure hardships are his foes...

True or not, we should never respond gently to terrorists. When an innocent is kidnapped, we should hold a funeral and respond forcefully and almost indiscriminately toward all known terrorists. Terrorists are like pirates - the enemies of all civilized men.

Joe Biden was wrong: "The Taliban per se is not our enemy. That's critical."
