Great idea

Some russian diplomats in Iraq were killed by terrorists. Putin has responded by ordering russian special forces to go to Iraq and kill those responsible. Sounds like a good idea to me.

They should send Vlad in. He would make short work of those fuckers. Did you know OSNAZ train in hand-to-hand combat on inmates? Thats one way to get some real world training! I'll bet those guys are fucking bad-asses.

I'd heard the Russian labor camps can be intense- but I hadn't heard you could get your ass handed to you by some special forces!

Yeah, they could send Vlad in... or they could bombard those shitbags with a few more 500lb bunker busters (i.e. the same kind they used to smoke Al-Zarqoui)

You're both missing the point. Putin didn't have any fuss, problems with the UN or international condemnation. Russians were killed by terrorists and he announced that he was sending people in to destroy them. No one blinks. Bush says pretty much the exact same thing and look at the flack.

Actually Garbs, I think Jack and I really did get the point. Hence the references to sending in our fictional Russian special ops (aka Vladimir Falkov). We have been preaching for a long time that the ragheads in Iraq need to be dealt with swiftly and mercilessly.
And Bush didn't catch any flack when he said basically the same thing (immediately after 9/11) that Putin did. It's only in the past few years that he's really taken any flack.

I didn't miss it. I just wanted to talk about bad-ass Russian SF. Not the political aspect. But now that you mention it, I think Russia doesn't catch any shit about doing things like that because they've been the "bad-guy" for so long. It's expected. When we do things like that, being the shining beacon of freedom and democracy, the world tends to look down upon that. Like we're we should know better, or something like that.

yeah, it sucks that we are held to such a higher standard than everyone else. It doesn't seem to much bother the rest of the world when insurgents burn US citizens in their streets and cut their heads off and hang the bodies from bridges. That's just a normal day in barbarian Iraq! But ooooo, if one of our SMART bombs takes out some wedding party that happens to be in the building next to a terrorist camp, then we get shit on.

The only time we got a free pass was when the world watched in horror as those fuckwads flew 2 airliners into our buildings. At that point it was free reign/ wrath of god type shit... in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, that free pass lasted only about 6 months. Then we went looking for WMD- which, has been a political nightmare ever since.
