Russia's Putin Predicts Global 'Chaos' If West Hits Syria Again

MOSCOW/DAMASCUS (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, while signs emerged that Moscow and Washington want to pull back from the worst crisis in their relations for years.

Putin made his remarks in a telephone conversation with Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani after the United States, France and Britain launched missile strikes on Syria on Saturday over a suspected poison gas attack.

A Kremlin statement said Putin and Rouhani agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in the multi-sided, seven-year conflict that has killed at least half a million people.

“Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations,” a Kremlin statement said.

5. So Putin warns that if we hit Syria there will be "repercussions".

Now he's saying if we hit Syria again there'll be "repercussions"

He's moving his "red line" back faster than Obama did!

6. Russia is not dealing with Obama

Putin understands this now. We need to push Russia into a box if they want to continue to act like shitheads on the world stage.

We also need to modernise our nuclear deterrent like they have been doing because we may have to eventually hit them hard and fast in a first strike.

They stole our election and when they did that they declared war on us. We need to be prepared at a moment's notice to launch a full bore nuclear first strike on Russia. I think this is only prudent and just. After all it was her turn and this would settle the score!

...U.S., U.K. and French missiles converged on Syria. They came from the Red Sea, the Arabian Gulf and the Mediterranean, homing in from three directions to overwhelm whatever missile defenses Assad’s regime might deploy. Russia’s more advanced air defense system didn’t engage the allied weapons.

According to the Pentagon, the allied weaponry included 19 new “Extended-Range” stealthy Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Attack Munitions launched by two B-1B bombers based out of Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, and six Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from the Virginia-class USS John Warner submarine. The bomber-launched missiles, built by Lockheed Martin Corp., had never been used in combat.

So, "Russia’s more advanced air defense system didn’t engage the allied weapons."

Hmmmm...

Unless Assad can regain full control of the country before then.
