BREAKING: After Trump Attacks Syria, Putin is PISSED

By

President Trump on Thursday once again demonstrated he’s not playing around by unleashing a DEVASTATING missile barrage on Syria. And Russia is NOT HAPPY.

The strike came in response to a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government earlier in the week.

US warships launched dozens of cruise missiles at the Syrian airbase from which the planes armed with chemical weapons took off.

Trump had initially wanted to stay out of the war in Syria, but said the regime’s brutal chemical attack on its own people had “crossed a lot of red lines.”

It was a major show of force and of the iron will of America’s new commander-in-chief.

The missile strike no doubt put the fear of God (and of Trump) into the Syrian regime.

But it also caused great concern to Russia, which is allied with Damascus.

Russian President Vladimir Putin immediately issued a strong condemnation of Trump’s actions, potentially setting the stage for a major showdown.

From the Daily Express:

VLADIMIR Putin believes the missile strikes against Syria are an act of “aggression against a sovereign nation,” according to his spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Speaking hours after US missile destroyers fired 59 Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian airbase, Viktor Ozerov said the Kremlin are now seeking an urgent UN Security Council meeting to quell tensions.

Ozerov said: “This could be viewed as an act of aggression of the US against a UN nation,” according to local media reports.

Hours before the strikes, a Russian official warned Trump to avoid launching a strike against Bashar al-Assad’s regime or they could face “negative consequences”.

Are you ready? Because the situation just got VERY REAL.
