When Syrian President Bashar al-Assad decided to gas his people, he must have forgotten that a former community organizer wasn’t running the most powerful nation in the world anymore. Without a second of hesitation, President Trump obliterated Barack Obama’s ridiculous “red line” in the sand, when he dropped 59 missiles on Syria’s airfield where the warplanes used in the chemical attack were based. It was only a matter of time before Russia responded to their Middle Eastern ally being attacked, and what Vladimir Putin just did could mark the dawn of the next world war.
While Americans slept, knowing that we have an assertive Commander-in-Chief in charge who doesn’t stand by and allow human atrocity to happen, Russia formulated their counter attack. Not only are they retaliating by air, they are taking defense against America by sea and need to prepare to lose.
The Kremlin confirmed that Russia will reinforce Syria’s air defense, suspending the airspace pact with the U.S., and “is sending a missile carrying warship to the eastern Mediterranean in response to a US cruise missile strikes,” Zero Hedge reported.
Putin is trying to block America from attacking by positioning his military in front of ours and attempting to grandstand the U.S., saying we have to go through them to get to Syria. In a strange coincidence, yesterday’s airstrike was exactly 100 years to the day of U.S. entering into World War I. After Putin’s latest move, this day could also bring about the third World War depending on what strategy is employed next.
As Russia moves their warships into place and promises to create an air defense system for Syria, they have forgotten one key item. There is a new sheriff in town, and the snowflakes have gone home. Russia’s archaic military is no match for General Mattis’s current military muscle. Our ships and war plans are light years beyond the Russian counterpart. So rattle your saber, Putin, the real world super power just returned.
