BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump issued a threatening tweet on Wednesday that warned Russia of an imminent missile attack against the Syrian government by his forces.

Trump tweeted “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!”

Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a calm response to Trump, stating that he hopes “common sense” will prevail in the modern world.

“The state of world affairs invokes nothing but concerns, the situation in the world is becoming more chaotic,” Putin said on Wednesday during a ceremony to welcome new ambassadors to Russia.

“Nevertheless, we still hope that common sense will eventually prevail and international relations will enter a constructive course, the entire world system will become more stable and predictable,” he added.

Putin is not the saviour – if he was then if USA attacks Russia should sink a US warship

Well, the west did succeed in one thing, they scared Erdog back into their fold. As smart as Putin is, I’m sure he realized that the little yapper was an ankle biter and would back-bite him at the first chance. It will be entertaining to see how Erdog manages this situation. Let’s see how low Erdo can crawl.

Like Stalin did, Putin has re-instated the Stavka, and just like under Stalin they will take control until the Federation is no longer under threat or no longer exists.

He didnt give up….firstly he is winning and if you want this world to be able to resist an apocaliptic war you just need someone like Putin.. he is the savior because you know what will happen if he replied as we hoped. There’s a different between what we want or what is the right decision. Everyone want to see Putin replies to Trump’s tweet as he wanted, but should he do it?? Thats the right question. The options are on the table and America alone will trigger the button. Putin know what he is saying. Trump is testing Putin… Read more »

Absolutely agree with you. I’ll always rely on Putin to behave like the adult in these situations. He definitely hasn’t given up but has something up his sleeve. We’ll find out in due course.
