We are approaching a Truman-MacArthur moment.  In the Korea War, a popular
general advocated the use of nuclear weapons against the Communist forces;
the US President fired him.  Now Kadyrov, a popular general, is exceeding
his authority by telling Putin that he should unleash nuclear force; will
Putin sack him??  I doesn't seem likely, but the situation cannot be
allowed to fester.
When he began this bluff, he had to worry about the Western respond; he
probably didn't expect this own generals to call his bluff.  For what it
worth:  I warned him
"More importantly, while you can be reasonably confident that Biden will
not publicly expose your bluff, there is a risk that it will be openly
called by another party."
