US SecDef Predicts Terror Attacks on Russia

Qatar Officials Warn Russia Creating a ‘Frankenstein’

Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, in comments mocking Russia’s “unprofessional” military for the way it is conducting airstrikes against ISIS,predicted that Russia would face “reprisal” terror attacks on Russian soil because of their military action.

Earlier this week a group of Saudi clerics issued a joint statement urging jihad against Russia for its support for the Assad government, and increasingly the narrative around the Gulf states is that Russia is taking sides with the Shi’ites against the Sunnis in general because of their Syria policy.

A top Qatari official was also quoted warning that Russia had “created a Frankenstein in the region” by backing the Assad government, warning there are 1.5 billion Muslims, and that the new call to jihad means “everyone will go to fight.”

While it’s not unusual for wars in the Middle East to raise concerns about terror attacks at home, Carter’s attitude suggested that he was endorsing the idea as a sort of commuppance for its foreign policy, which ironically appears markedly similar to America’s own policy.
