Russia, Iran Warn U.S. They Will “Respond With Force” If Syria “Red Lines” Crossed Again

A statement issued on Sunday by a joint command centre consisting of forces of Russian, Iran and allied militia alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al Assad said that Friday’s US strike on the Syrian air base crossed “red lines” and it would “respond with force” to any new aggression while increasing their level of support to their ally.

    But this:

    “Here in the Rio Grande Valley, ground zero since 2014 for the flow of asylum seekers fleeing violence and persecution in Central America, the number of families and unaccompanied children caught entering the United States has plummeted, from about 291 a day in January to just 37 a day in March.”

    • Fabulous news!

        MAGA! He’s just getting warmed up.

  • Nuke Iran – that will shut them up.

    • That may happen.

    Funny how the MSM can find decent photos of Putin to run but is still refusing to do that for Trump, instead running e.g. open-mouthed shots of him. F#ck, I hate their pettiness.

  • The Russians have the largest Islam problem of any non-Islamic country.

    The fact that Putin thinks Iran is an ally proves Putin is not up to the task.

    And as much as I supported Trump, I am not sure he is up to the task either.

    Islam is an out of control death cult. Quit taking sides with the cultists.

      And then there’s China. I saw a tweet the other day from some Chinese official quoted in the NYT along the lines of “We hope America becomes embroiled in war in the middle-east rather than focuses on becoming strong, because then we can continue our peaceful, uncontested rise to world dominance, unchecked.” Perhaps they will deal with Islam, if they become the most powerful nation in the world.

        And then there’s Maude.

      • The US does not need Arab oil. We should get the hell out of the Middle East.

        Then let the Chinese protect their own oil supply lines. Maybe their opinion will change.

      Trump’s agenda for Syria is to wipe out ISIS and assist Sunni allies like Jordan in setting up safe zones for civilians so that the factions there can slaughter each other without innocents getting hurt. To this he has added enforcement of the treaty banning chemical weapons.
