That’s the way to respond

Say what you want about Putin - I think the guy is a dangerous ex-KGB operative throwback of the “good ole days” of the USSR ,and a manipulative bastard - but he, sure as hell knows how to repsond to terrorist scum:

MOSCOW (AP) - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin vowed “retribution is inevitable” for the suicide bombing that killed 35 people at Russia’s busiest airport, while President Dmitry Medvedev demanded robust checks at all transport hubs and lashed out at the airport for lax security. Putin has built much of his reputation on harsh statements, but he did not elaborate on what kind of retribution he had planned or against whom in his comments Tuesday carried by Russian news agencies. No claims of responsibility have been made for the attack Monday at Domodedovo Airport, which also left 180 people injured. Suspicion is likely to fall, however, on Islamist separatist insurgents from Chechnya or elsewhere in Russia’s restive Caucasus region who have been battling Russian authority for over 15 years.

The people behind this attack only understand and respect violence. Put asside the fact that security at this airport was piss poor according to the Russian officials own statements, the fact remains that these radicals attack where they see weakness. At least it is kind of Kharmic justice that the Russians are reaping some of that Islamic radicalism they helped foment back in the days that the KGB decided to teach Arraft’s goons how to be master terrorists so they could screw with the West. Maybe it will even make them worry about their cozy relationship with not jobs like the ones that are running Iran right now and getting help from the Russians to build nukes. I am sure nobody in Russia is right now saying how great of an ooporunity this tragedy is for Putin & Medvedev to look presidential, though I suspect they will take advantage of it too.
