Russia Denies Considering Nukes - Not that Anyone Asked
"We will take any action to eliminate terrorist bases in any region of the world. But this does not mean we will carry out nuclear strikes," Russia's Chief of Staff General Yuri Baluyeveski was quoted as saying by Interfax news agency.
I'm glad he was quick to dismiss the nuclear option. Of course, I don't know of anyone who suggested it in the first place. Was this seriously debated in the Kremlin? What does this denial reveal about the mindset of the Russian military? What could happen after the next, inevitable atrocity?
