Apparently Russia has embraced the doctrine of preemption when it comes to terrorism.
“As for launching pre-emptive strikes on terrorist bases, we will carry out all measures to liquidate terrorist bases in any region of the world,” General Yuri Baluevsky, chief of Russia’s general staff, said, according to Russian news agencies.
“However, this does not mean that we will launch nuclear strikes.”

Oh, that’s right, the EU wants an explanation of _Russia’s_ actions.
If the War on Terror is truly another world war, then I believe this may be the analog of Pearl Harbor.
