You can not help but notice the headlines this last week about the chemical weapons attack in Syria, followed by the U.S. retaliatory missile strike President Donald Trump ordered on the Syrian air base where it originated.
In the wake of the attack on the Bashar al-Assad regime, analysts and strategists have continued to warn that this is not the last you have seen and heard of significant American involvement in Syria. They attribute this to the relative ease of another strike or continued operations there thanks to the hefty American presence near Syria throughout the Middle East.
The big reaction story of this retaliation strike comes from “the joint command operation center of Syrian allies” statement which Russia and Iran co-released with Syria over night. They have officially warned the United States on any further military action against Assad’s Syrian regime. This might be expected, but it is the phrases used that should raise concern:
“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. 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.”
The gang of three warned the world they will defend Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime and the “people of Syria” “with all the means that we have.” You read that right— Russia just threatened military retaliation against the United States in the event that the U.S. ever touches Assad’s Syria again.
As if this were not enough, consider the rest of their warning:
“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. Russia and Iran will not allow the United States to be the only superpower in the world.” Syria’s allies are “closely and deeply following American forces’ moves and presence” in the northern Syria and northwestern Iraq regions. They will “consider them [to be] an occupying force.”
It is immaterial what constitutes a so-called “red line” for Russia, Iran, and Syria. The fact of the matter is that the United States is potentially on a very serious collision course with the heavily nuclear-armed and second greatest conventional military power in the world, which is also led by the person CNN recently dubbed “the most powerful man in the world,” Vladimir Putin.
If that is not enough to spark concern in you about potential military confrontations on which the United States appears to be set, you also have the North Korean situation which took a step closer to being out of control this weekend when the USS Carl Vinson Aircraft Carrier Strike Group was ordered to the Korean Peninsula.
The North Koreans got the message loud and clear. They lost no time in reminding everyone their paranoid reasoning for needing nuclear weapons in the first place. The fact is that they actually do already have verified nuclear weapons. They have conducted five successful nuclear bomb tests already, with a sixth one believed to be on the way anytime.
