With the breaking news tonight that ISIS was indeed responsible for the destruction of the Russia airliner over the Sinai according to UK and US intelligence officials it is only a matter of time until Vladimir Putin sends his long range bombers over Syria to pay a visit upon the capital of ISIS in Raqqa, Syria. The preferred weapon of choice? The temptation would be to fulfill the internet rumors of a tactical nuclear strike in the 25-100 kt range but due to the fear of irradiating Turkish territory, that is highly unlikely.

Instead, look for several Russian bombers to drop anywhere from 8 to 12 of the FOAB’s (“Father of all Bombs”) as demonstrated in this RT video of the bomb test from 2013:

This could become an ongoing weekly campaign against cities held by ISIS however, the demonstration of the destructive capabilities of an angered bear on Raqqah should be sufficient enough to terrify not just the terrorists in Syria, but Western nations who wish consistently insist on poking the Russian bear. The destructive capabilities of this weapon versus the American MOAB are summed up in this side by side comparison:

As the aftermath of such an attack is assessed, look for complete and utter panic in Riyadh, Doha, and Washington, DC as the leaders of those nations wonder how long their private terrorist mercenary army can hold out against losing hundreds or even thousands of fighters each week as they hide in the ISIS seized cities under the women and children begging their Allah for mercy and intervention.

Too bad.

Because unlike the gutless coward in charge of the United States, Russia’s leaders will never tolerate their citizens being targeted like this and retribution will be thousands of times worse than any terrorist act they may wish to engage in.
