MMA superstar Chael Sonnen accurately claims Russia has never been attacked:
When’s the last time Russia had a 9/11? NEVER.
Not that it matters, but in 2014, the Institute for Economics and Peace Global Terrorism Index ranked Russia 11th out of 162 countries most affected by terrorism– not far behind Iraq (1) and Afghanistan (2).
Since Putin took power in 1999, there have been ~100 terrorist incidents, including:
- Moscow Theater
In 2002, some 40-50 Islamic militants stormed the Dubrovka Theater and took 850 hostages. In total, 150 hostages were killed.
- Beslan Massacre
In 2004, dozens of Islamic militants took 1,200 children and their parents hostage in a school in the Russian town of Beslan. In total, 330 hostages killed, more than 700 wounded.
- Volgograd Bombings
In 2013, a militant Jihadist organization claimed credit for coordinated bus bombings that killed 32 and injured 85.
[Putin] invaded the Ukraine [and] he didn’t kill a single person.
Not that I care, but…
|Ukraine armed forces||2,960|
|Russian armed forces||~400|
To Chael’s credit, his wife Brittany is gorgeous…
