Russia and Iran Promise to Strike Back at U.S. if it Crosses Anymore ‘Red Lines’

If Russia and/or Iran were to strike back at the U.S., it would likely be the end of Russia and Iran. They wouldn’t be destroyed exclusively by the U.S. They’d also have to deal with our allies.

They must know this. They have to be bluffing.

Nevertheless, it hasn’t stopped them from threatening. From The Sun:

Russia and Iran have said they will respond to further American military actions following the air strike in Syria last week.

In a joint statement the command centre for the two countries and allied groups said: “We will respond to any aggression.”

The statement read: “What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.”

According to ABC News’s reporting of the two countries’ joint statement:

“The United States crossed red lines by attacking Syria, from now on we will respond to anyone, including America if it attacks Syria and crosses the red lines,” the statement read. “America knows very well our ability and capabilities to respond well to them, [and] we will respond without taking into consideration any reaction and consequences.”

[…]

“Rest assured that we will liberate Syria from all kinds of occupying forces, it does not matter from where they came to the occupied part of Syria,” the statement warned. “Russia and Iran will not allow the United States to be the only superpower in world.”

The statement warned the U.S. that allies of Syria were “closely and deeply following American forces’ moves and presence” in the areas of northern Syria and northwestern Iraq, and that they will “consider them [to be] an occupying force.”
