Known for his hardline stance and strong public remarks, Russian President Vladimir Putin's latest quotable quote has been making the rounds on social media.

A tweet by Ms Remi Maalouf, a news anchor with television channel Russia Today, highlights Mr Putin's colourful take on terrorism: "To forgive them is up to God, but to send them to him is up to me."

In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks on Nov 13 which killed at least 129 people, Russia and France agreed to coordinate their military and security services against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants in Syria.

Mr Putin, speaking to his top military officials, had vowed merciless retaliation for the attacks, as warplanes from both countries unleashed bombs on the ISIS stronghold of Raqa earlier this week.

"It's necessary to establish direct contact with the French and work with them as allies," he said.

The urgency of the unusual alliance was also due to Tuesday's revelation that ISIS was responsible for planting a homemade bomb that ripped apart a Russian passenger jet over Egypt on Oct 31.

That incident claimed the lives of all 224 people on board, most of whom were Russians returning home from a vacation.

Mr Putin responded by saying it was one of the bloodiest acts in modern Russian history, vowing that the effort to bring ISIS to justice would be relentless.

"We will search for them everywhere wherever they are hiding. We will find them anywhere on the planet and punish them," he added.

Would you really want someone like him in charge, he's a gangster. Let's assume he defeated ISIS...and then what? He's hardly a humanitarian is he.

The reporter who interviewed him has since admitted that the above quote was not used by Putin. Shame. It seems quite fitting.

The point I am making is his sort is more likely to deal with you if you spoke out about his thuggish ways.
