Could World War 3 be on the brink of the horizon? Only time will tell.
Thursday evening, the US fired airstrikes, hitting the military base in Syria that carried out deadly chemical warfare on Syria earlier this week.
So we swooped in to help. However, here’s where the problem comes in: Russia warned us about negative consequences if we got involved, AND there were Russians on the base that we hit.
A US defense official said the strike was targeted on runway, aircraft and fuel points. The missiles were launched from warships in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Strikes are over “until another decision is made,” the official said.The strikes are the first direct military action the US has taken against the leadership of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s six-year civil war and represent a substantial escalation of the US’ military campaign in the region, which could be interpreted by the Syrian government as an act of war.There were Russians at the base that the US struck Thursday night, a US defense official. It was not said what the Russians’ role was at the base. In addition, according to the official, the US had multiple conversations with the Russians today to warn them of the coming attack.
By no means are we Putin’s little puppets, but this could mean serious war.
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Russia’s deputy U.N. envoy, Vladimir Safronkov, warned on Thursday of “negative consequences” if the United States carries out military strikes on Syria over a deadly toxic gas attack.
“We have to think about negative consequences, negative consequences, and all the responsibility if military action occurred will be on shoulders of those who initiated such doubtful and tragic enterprise,” Safronkov told reporters when asked about possible U.S. strikes.
When asked what those negative consequences could be, he said: “Look at Iraq, look at Libya.”
