COALITION PUTS AMERICA ON NOTICE …
While the administration of U.S. president Donald Trump struggles to get on the same page regarding its Syrian policy, there is absolutely no confusion or equivocation coming from the coalition opposing America’s recent intervention.
According to a joint statement released this week by Russian, Iranian and Syrian military leaders, the United States needs to think long and hard before it ponders another attack against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
“What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines,” the joint statement read. “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.”
Game on …
Russia and Iran are making it abundantly clear that any further ill-conceived American military involvement in Syria will result in retaliatory action against our military.
Which leads us to the following question: Is this fight worth our blood and treasure?
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: America has no business intervening in Syria. There is simply not a core national interest served by our engagement there, and attacking Assad’s regime not only needlessly escalates tensions with Russia and Iran – it undermines our nation’s ability to wage its so-called “War on Terror” against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
