Last week, a Russian charter plane flying over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt crashed. 224 passengers and crew members were killed—and the Islamic State is taking responsibility for the tragic incident.
“In response to the purported downing of a Russian civilian airliner in the Sinai in Egypt, the Kremlin is now poised for a nuclear strike on sites controlled by the Islamic State,” LiveLeak is reporting.
The report also claims that Russia has started “moving its tactical nuclear units closer to its international boundaries.” Russian nationals from the Middle Eastern nations of Syria and Iraq have are evacuating.
Of course, the mainstream media has chosen to ignore this entire thing. Instead, the New York Times reported that airline officials and American intelligence officers are skeptical “about the assertion by the Islamic State.” It goes on to argue that there is little evidence to substantiate the claim.
Regardless, Putin seems ready to strike back.
