US – Russia on the Verge of War after Airstrike on Syria
Russia tells US they are one step away from war right after the issues over Syria, the Trump administration surprisingly replied that they are all set to carry out airstrikes again. The conflict broke out right after Trump authorized the firing of 59 cruise missiles at a military airfield.
The Prime Minister of Russia condemned the US for attacking the legitimate government of Syria. He further stated that the US had broken the international law without the approval of the UN. The Russian President Vladimir Putin has diverted warship to protect the Syrian coast, it is believed that the firing of missiles at a military airfield was executed to retaliate for Assad's use of chemical weapons.
According to the Mail Online, Trump clearly said he would do it again after unleashing a surprise attack on the Syrian regime. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the action was an indication of Trump's extreme dependency on the views of Washington establishment.
It appears that Russia and the US might be on the verge of war, this is because the use of the military force is a serious business, and the strikes could lead the US - Russia relationship down a nasty path. As for the US president it is essential to prevent and discourage the usage of chemical weapons, reported the Washington Post.
Previously the US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the UN they are prepared to do more, but they hope it will not be necessary. Putin also denounced the US missile strikes as an illegal act of aggression, responding to the situation he suspended the military hotline to avoid collisions between Russia and US fighter jets over the war torn country. Russia and US are considered as the top most superpowers in the world, if the conflict gets worse their relationship will plunge and might even turn into a war.
