DID WORLD WAR 3 JUST BREAK OUT?
The United States tried to launch a war of aggression against Syria in August 2013, following the #ChemicalHoax massacre in Ghouta. It was prevented from doing so by the Russian Navy, which had taken control of the Eastern Mediterranean.
The plan in 2013 was to coordinate the missile strike with al-Qaeda forces, so that Islamist would quickly overrun the government bases and capture Damascus. I believed at the time that Russia would respond to the attack, the secret orders to the fleet were to sink any U.S. ship launching an illegal attack.
Will Russia respond this time? (Or has it already retaliated?) I do not think so. The difference is that the Syrian government is no longer in a mortal danger. The missiles are mainly symbolic. There is no al-Nusra army waiting for the signal to launch their coordinated attack. -- Petri Krohn (talk) 01:51, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
- If that's all, it's a clear "stop bothering me, there, I've done something" Trump move against the bloodthirsty pre$$titute horde and their backers. It still is a sign of total inaptitude and will upset his grassroots backers, adding to all the people who are mad at him already. So stupid. Sad. If that's all, it's worse for the US than it is for Syria. --CE (talk) 02:01, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
