Instantman says that those who object to the Russian attack on the theater should say what else could have been done. I overall think that the action was the best that could done, but that the implementation was badly flawed, particulary (or mostly) for not preparing treatment for the hostages after the gas attack. That prompt, specific medical treatment would be needed for hundreds should not only have been forseen but blindingly obvious. I suspect that it was typical Russian government effeciency that is to blame, not any direct plot or indifference. I hope that any investigation focuses on this, rather than second guessing the actual attack.
