Vladimir Putin may not be the nicest or most tolerant guy around, but at least we know we can count on him to waste some terrorists when and if he gets the chance.

A Tweet by Remi Maalouf, a journalist on Russian TV channel Russia Today, highlighted an A+ quote from Putin when talking about dealing with terrorism:
In case the Tweet doesn’t load:
To forgive them is up to God, but to send them to him is up to me.
It was somewhat reminiscent of a quote he dropped in 1999, when he briefly served as prime minister during Boris Yeltsin’s presidency:
We are going to pursue terrorists everywhere. If they are in the airport, we will pursue them in the airport. And if we capture them in the toilet, then we will waste them in the outhouse. … The issue has been resolved once and for all.
Whoa! Is this guy the President of Russia or fucking Rambo? Imagine Barack Obama or David Cameron talking like that. It would be the most badass thing either of them ever said but for Vladimir Putin, it’s just another quotable. Following the atrocities of the weekend everyone else around the world is grieving and talking about unity and the power of flowers vs guns. Not Putin though — he’s going to bring the terror to the terrorists. I’d be bricking it if I was them.
P.S. Remember the time he accidentally made fun of a stuttering stroke survivor at that press conference last year? Classic.
