National news coverage is rightfully focused on ISIS’ move to take the strategically important Syrian-Kurdish town of Kobani on the Turkish border. An article in Ria Novosti caught the eye of focus group expert Frank Luntz, who shares that ISIS has threatened to invade Russia as well.
In a telephone conversation with his father, an Islamic State (IS) commander, Tarkhan Batirashvili, also known as Omar al-Shishani or Omar the Chechen, stated that the militant group plans to invade Russia, Bloomberg reported.
“He said “don’t worry dad, I’ll come home and show the Russians,’” Bloomberg quoted Temur Batirashvili, the father of the IS commander, as saying Thursday.
“I have many thousands following me now and I’ll get more. We’ll have our revenge against Russia,” Omar the Chechen told his father, according to Bloomberg.
For once, Westerners can get behind the aspirations of ISIS leadership.
@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin I'd love to see them try that. Pass the popcorn.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin Yeah, go on and do that. Maybe that's what Obama is waiting on. His grand strategy.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin Because that has NEVER been a bad idea. Odd that Russia May become ISIS's Afghanistan.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin Well lets hope that earns them a rocket up their asses and more hell than they can handle.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin With winter approaching??? Those fools!

@frankluntz @adambaldwin Helpful tip to ISIS: Invade in winter. Don't read any history first.
— GregEsq (@GregEsq) October 11, 2014
@FrankLuntz They should totally do that. In fact, every winter they should be offered a 2 week invasion head start.

@FrankLuntz Just before winter. Good call.

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin 2 world wars and the loser always thought they could take Russia and the US at the same time. #doitidareyou !

. @FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin because that has historically worked out so well.

I'm guessing Putin handles the threat. @AdamBaldwin @FrankLuntz

@FrankLuntz @AdamBaldwin Can we get it on PPV?
— Steven Butkus (@Arkhound) October 11, 2014
@FrankLuntz yeah, good luck with that. Ask Napoleon and Germans in WWII how that turns out. The terrain & weather alone would beat them.
— Brent Hatley (@brenthatley) October 11, 2014
@FrankLuntz @FairOaksTrader Putin single handedly will stop that from happening.

@FrankLuntz @FairOaksTrader Good Luck! Putin is not Obama!!
