Ted Cruz on Saturday:

“We will carpet bomb [ISIS] into oblivion. I don’t know if sand can glow in the dark, but we’re going to find out.”

Vladimir Putin on Wednesday:

Talking about Russia’s military campaign in Syria, Putin mentioned the weapons currently being used could ‘be equipped with special nuclear warheads.’

‘Both the Calibre missiles and the Kh-101 rockets are generally showing very good results. We now see that these are new, modern and highly effective high-precision weapons that can be equipped either with conventional or special nuclear warheads,’ Putin said during a meeting with Russia’s Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu.

Never try to be a bigger man than Vladimir Putin!
