Just like Beslan?

Putin has vowed to nail the killers of four Russians in Iraq:

Nikolai Patrushev, the head of the Federal Security Service — the main successor to the Soviet KGB — later said that everything would be done to ensure that the killers "do not escape from responsibility," the Interfax news agency reported.

"The president has ordered the special forces to take all necessary measures to find and destroy the criminals who killed Russian diplomats in Iraq," the Kremlin press service said in a brief statement.

We'll see. He once promised to retaliate against the killers of little children at Beslan.

It has surprised me that the Russians didn't go after the killers of Beslan or those who supported them.

So I guess if Russia really goes after the latest Islamist murderers, I'll be surprised all over again.
