Would Putin uses nuclear weapons against ISIS, if they attack Russia?
ISIS recently made a video threatening attacks on Russia. They attacked France, the difference is Putin is not soft like the West is and is not politically correct. Putin is the most powerful world leader that is in control of the 2nd most powerful military and the most nuclear warheads in the world, he was KGB. All I can say ISIS in for a world of pain if they attack Russia.

No. People all over the world would freak the f out including America and China. The world would see them as nuts and possibly use nukes on us. Russia could be nuked by some country as a panic response and Russia is not willing to take that risk.

The question of using nukes comes up over and over here.
Where would you drop the nuke? On a cave in the desert? Maybe you'd kill 10-12 people.
Would you drop it on a major middle eastern city where hundreds of thousands of people live in fear of the 500-1000 terrorists that live scattered amongst them? Maybe you'd get 200 of them, but not all, and at what cost?
ISIS isn't a country. It's a group of terrorists interwoven in the fabric of societies in many many countries.

It will be interesting to see what happens if ISIS really pisses off the Russians or, say, China.
It probably wouldn't be nuclear, but I can imagine "surgical" won't describe a response from either of them.
If something ever happens, tens of millions of Muslims will be incinerated. Those killed during the Iraq wars will look minuscule in comparison.
