Russia Shows What Happens When Terrorists’ Families Are Targeted

“Donald J. Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, was widely condemned when he called for the United States to ‘take out the families’ of terrorists. His approach — even after he clarified that he was not talking about killing the relatives — was dismissed by many as immoral and unlawful. Yet, it is the very tactic that Russia has pursued for decades. It is the signature, though officially unacknowledged, policy behind Moscow’s counterinsurgency and counterterrorism strategies, and Russia’s actions in smashing a Muslim separatist rebellion in the Caucasus provide a laboratory for testing Mr. Trump’s ideas.”
