In case you’ve been in a cave or a coma in the last 72 hours, we’re as close to going to war with Russia as we’ve ever been since the inauguration of President Trump little more than a year ago.
Last week, chemical attacks were launched against innocent civilians in Syria which left many dead, including women and children.
In the days following, accusations were leveled on all sides concerning who was responsible. Russia blamed everyone except the Assad regime.
But after deliberating for days, a coalition including the US, Britain, and France argued that intelligence proves Assad launched the attack.
President Trump announced yesterday that the coalition is attacking Syrian chemical weapons assets in response.
That’s when Russia responded with a promise of ‘consequences’. Stay tuned…
Here’s more from Redstate…
Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has posted the first official response from the country regarding the allied strikes on chemical weapons targets in Syria that took place late Friday night.
“A pre-designed scenario is being implemented,” he warns.
This is a screenshot of the Facebook post from the Russian Embassy, and below that is the text typed out, followed by Gen. Mattis predicting exactly what Russia is doing.
Statement by the Ambassador of Russia to the USA Anatoly Antonov on the strikes on Syria
The worst apprehensions have come true. Our warnings have been left unheard.
A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.
All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.
Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible.
The U.S. – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.
