Russia Threatens To ‘Strike Back’ If The U.S. Attacks Syria: Trump Responds [Video]

President Trump Lets Russia Know That The United States Means Business

A Russian diplomat made a steamy boast on television by quoting Putin. Basically what he said was that if the U.S. takes action against Syria Russia will retaliate.

In true Trump fashion, the President let Russia know just how he feels about threats. Take a look.

“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’s tweet reads.

A Russian diplomat speaking to Hezb’allah TV said Russia will shoot down any U.S. missiles fired at Syrian targets and then attack the “sources where the missiles were fired.”

The threat of retaliation by Russia changes the calculations in U.S. plans to respond to the poison gas attack on civilians over the weekend, presumably carried out by Syria.

NBCNews:

“If there is a strike by the Americans, then we refer to the statements of President [Vladimir] Putin and the chief of staff that the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired,” Russian Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin told Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV.

The envoy’s comments came after the U.S. heaped condemnation on Syria and its main backer Russia since images emerged of the suspected poison gas attack that allegedly killed dozens in Douma on Saturday.

Trump canceled a trip to Latin America to focus on the Syria incident, the White House said.  Defense Secretary Jim Mattis also canceled plans to travel to California in the coming days.  Trump told reporters all options were on the table regarding Syria.
