After bombing the harbor of Beirut, the Pentagon is now playing a game of nuclear “chicken” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
This happened after regarding Putin’s threat on June 19th to go to war against the USA if the military again shoots down a Syrian aircraft, or the aircraft of any of the foreign governments that have allied with Syria, Russia, Iran, and China.
The US military had shot down a Syrian government plane on June 19th, which was bombing terrorists whom the U.S. government backs in order to overthrow the Syrian government.
In areas where Russian aviation is conducting combat missions in the Syrian skies, any flying objects, including jets and unmanned aerial vehicles of the international coalition discovered west of the Euphrates River, will be followed by Russian air and ground defenses as air targets.
That would place the USA and Russia in a traditional war against each other, over Syrian territory, if the US military continues to bomb Syria.
The first side to attack would knock out many of the other side’s retaliatory silo-based ICBM’s and thus probably be the ‘winner’, though that’s not certain (since most nukes aren’t silo-based anymore).
