Russia reserves the right to be as fucked up as the U.S. of A.
Russia reserves the right to carry out preventive strikes with conventional weaponry on terror bases anywhere they are found in the world, Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov was quoted as saying Friday.
“We do not rule out the possibility of carrying out preventive strikes on terrorist bases at any location in the world,” Ivanov was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying in an address to Russian military-diplomatic officials here.
“Russia,” he said, “is far from being the only country to announce its readiness to carry out preventive strikes on terrorist bases.”
Without directly naming the United States, he said that “precedents have already been set in Afghanistan and Iraq” for such pre-emptive military action. Washington has carried out what it described as preventive anti-terror military strikes in both countries.
Yes, we’ve set the precedent. Now watch the aggressive militants of the world run with it. I’m waiting for North Korea to declare the White House to be a terrorist base.
