The United States President Trump has warned Russia which promised to shoot down American missiles. “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” Trump tweeted.
At the same time, information came that the United States has flown Boeing E4, the doom’s day airplane, the Advanced Airborne Command Post, which can wage a war and stay in the air without landing for a week.
Moscow is trying to show that Trump’s words are not so serious. However, Russia does not have the military potential that it takes to counter new American missiles. Russian specialists and military experts admit to this. Interestingly, the Russian navy was reported to have left Tartus base in Syria.
Trump’s scandalous Tweet was followed by another tweet: “Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?”
Trump is obviously teasing Russia and at the same time he conveys that without the United States Russia will not be able to restore its economy and will not stand the arms race. Interestingly, the Russian ruble collapsed the day before these events due to the new American sanctions, and Rusal, one of the giants of the Russian economy, lost billions. Trump shows that a single stroke is enough for the Russian economy to collapse.
Will the Americans save Russia again as they have done for multiple times? Apparently not this time but for the time being there is no intention to collapse Russia, and “evidence” to this is the rise in prices of oil. They will continue to “squeeze” Russia which has far-reaching economic and political goals.
The United States tried to give Russia the role of “coordinator” in Syria, including for Iran and Turkey. However, not only Russia failed to perform this role but also fully obeyed Turkey. Interestingly, upon Trump’s tweets Turks also went on to criticize Russia.
Will there be a strike against Syria and will this strike be aimed at Russia or is the “target” currently different and by hitting Russia the United States announces a new situation in the Near East that targets a major actor other than Russia.
Turkey or Iran? Turkey is playing its role, once hiding behind the back of Americans and then behind the Russians. Recently Israel has fired missiles at the Iranian base in Syria. Israeli experts say that Tehran’s regime will not last until the end of the year.
