Russia and Iran threatened the United States to hit back if President Donald Trump keeps crossing red lines, i.e. if the US will continue with its Syria strikes.
The 2 countries together with allied groups released a statement on Monday, vowing to respond against further military escalation on Trump’s part, yet it wasn’t very clear in what way.
The joint statement from Russia and Iran’s command centers said that they’ll respond to any aggression from the US. The official declaration reads:
“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.”
What does that mean exactly? Full scale war against NATO? The warning from what it appears to be the new axis of evil came in the same time as a Russian politician warned the West about NKoreans, who could strike at any moment.
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani blasted the United States for its flagrant aggression on a sovereign country (Syria) in the aftermath of the US missile strike on the Syrian military airfield. Iran is a key ally of Syria’s President Bashar al Assad and Rouhani called for an official/international/impartial investigation into the alleged chemical attack that killed more than 70 people.
Hassan Rouhani also blasted the golf monarchies for supporting the US strike on Syria, warning them that,let me quote:
“Unfortunately, there are countries in our own region which encourage America’s acts of aggression.Your turn will come too.”
Russia insisted that the US missile strike on Syria was a flagrant act of aggression under international law, warning America of extremely serious consequences in the eventuality of future attacks. Russia will not tolerate any longer the United States threatening the regional stability said the statement, being ready to respond with military force if the US will cross the red lines once again.
