Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev: ‘One Step Away From Military Clashes With Russia’

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote these on his social facebook account.

“That’s it. The last remaining election fog has lifted. Instead of an overworked statement about a joint fight against the biggest enemy, ISIS (the Islamic State), the Trump administration proved that it will fiercely fight the legitimate Syrian government, in a tough contradiction with international law and without UN approval, in violation of its own procedures stipulating that the Congress must first be notified of any military operation unrelated to aggression against the US. On the verge of a military clash with Russia.
Nobody is overestimating the value of pre-election promises but there must be limits of decency.
Beyond that is absolute mistrust. Which is really sad for our now completely ruined relations. And which is good news for terrorists.
One more thing. This military action is a clear indication of the US President’s extreme dependency on the opinion of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticised in his inauguration speech. Soon after his victory, I noted that everything would depend on how soon Trump’s election promises would be broken by the existing power machine. It took only two and a half months.”

Third World War is coming???

  1. This was a heavily telegraphed symbolic gesture meant to garner support among the dwindling credulous simpletons who voted for Trump, nothing more. It did suit Putin’s goals of ending the limited partnership the US and Russia had in fighting Daesh. Russia looks to reduce any US influence in Syria and to thwart the UN stated goals of removing Assad from power.
    Fait accompli.

    • Yes, “Russia looks to reduce any US influence in Syria and to thwart the UN stated goals of removing Assad from power.” But already what can do anything else? One way or another, these events, including US’ military strikes to Syria on today, all the parts of the third world war. And I believe in if Trump wasn’t be power, these could become real again, maybe not in 7 April, it would be happen on another page of calendar, but definitelly would have been same, maybe worst by hand of H. Clinton, my Earthling friend. This world is controled by capitalist-elites and almost all governments have tie with elites. And it’s good to see your comment in here again.:)

      • Thanks Migo. You’re correct in your assessment of HRC. She is a “regime change” fanatic. A “no fly zone” would have put us in immediate conflict with Russia in Syria.
        Damned if ya do, damned if ya don’t as they say.

  2. Hey, Migo,

    I’m not sure how to interpret this “attack” against Syria by the US. The whole operation has the odor of political theater. One way of looking at this is that Trump et al. decided to throw the warmongering neocons (and war profiteers) a bone to lick, to calm them down, so to speak, so as to whittle a bit of political cooperation out of them.

    I say this because:

    a) Both Russia and Syria were forewarned about what was coming and were thereby given fair warning to get important military assets out of the way.

    b) Shayrat airfield itself is a rather low value target, given that it’s “a ‘dump’ where the Syrian Arab Republic’s armed forces’ old and already decommissioned military equipment waits before being sent to scrap or dismantling for old parts.”

    c) Out of 59 missiles, only 23 landed “in proximity” of the Shayrat airfield. Apparently, for approximately 90 million dollars worth of spent ordnance, the US managed a paltry 3-5 million dollars in material damage, and nothing at all to speak of to the runway they intended to disable.

    So . . . either:

    1. The U.S. missiles are pieces of junk that fly on a wing and a prayer.

    Or:

    1.2. The personnel whose job it is to target the ordnance are sending their higher-ups a message (my personal favorite in terms of what I’m hoping for and may in fact be possible).

    Or:

    1.2.5. The US military are trying to fool the Russians and Syrians into believing that American hardware isn’t as good as it “exceptionally” really is, trying, that is to say, to lull Russia and Syria into a false sense of security, so as to surprise them later . . . 😉

    But as I replied to someone at the OffG website,

    There is enough ambiguity in the scenarios at hand to suggest that both the “chemical attack” and the US retaliation are all smoke and mirrors. I’m not saying the first thing was all of a piece with the second, but that the first thing was known to be coming well in advance of its execution, and the “political” riposte (i.e. the missile attack) was also prepared in due time and as a result, and not without the connivance of both the Russian and Syrian leadership. Too few missiles hit their “target” and the misses may have been deliberate, less to mislead the Russian-Syrian camp, than to play up “serious operational deficiencies” to shake the confidence of the hawks back in the U.S.

    Of course, the latter is all unrestrained speculation on my part, but there you have it.

    As to whether the “chemical attack” was the staging of something that did not in fact occur,
    how is this as evidence of at least some “foreknowledge” by the “rebel faction:”

    And then see the rest of the article by Paul Antonopoulos, from which I was alerted to that particular piece of suggestive and tantalizing evidence: Jumping to conclusions; something is not adding up in Idlib chemical weapons attack.

    But who can say? For sure, the details will emerge in time. Obviously, my hope is my bias: I don’t want to see this thing escalate into anything more than the theater it currently happens to be. So that’s the way I’m reading these tea leaves.

  3. Trump is owned, my friend, he will do as he is told, or else, just like Obama, Bush and all the presidents before him.

    I wrote post after post, right after last November’s election, stating that Trump would do as Obama and Bush had been doing. This government is owned and operated by a small cabal of Zionist, Capitalist psychopaths. They rule the government, not “we the people”. These elite pigs benefit from the government, not “we the people”. And they rape and pillage the rest of humanity while most of us (Americans) sit around with our fat, “self-actualized, politically-correct heads up our asses. This is why I quit! It does no good to bring all of this up to most Americans, they either are too illiterate and stupid, or they are too busy making love to themselves to give a single shot about what happens to the rest of humanity. My friend, I live in “I, Me and Mine” hell!

    Assad had nothing to do with this chemical attack, I would bet my life on it! But I can almost guarantee you the CIA or some other stooge agency of the elite pigs carried out this crime against humanity. This was another false flag, so the US could wage war in Syria. Remember Sadam Hussein, who supposedly had gassed the northern tribes (the Kurds)? This is the same old red white and blue bullshit, just another day (SOSDD).

    We need world war three, my friend. This age old hell will never end, until these generations are wiped off the face of the earth. Go Putin! Blast the shit out of us, and put me out of my misery! And I am not joking!!

    Take care!

    • You’re definitely right my dear Earthling friend! As PSL socialist candidate Gloria La Viva said in an interview before the US election: “The U.S. president is simply the CEO of U.S. imperialism, and whomever is elected will pursue those objectives.”

      This system would bring same people to power, unless it wouldn’t change.

      Also, I believe in you are believe in my sincerity. May I ask you a question? Why you didn’t think to give a vote for a socialist candidate like Gloria La Viva. I am asking to you because of to predict and learn the future of communism and socialism on this planet.

      By the way, I had missed your comments which make me smile and your distinctive unique language that you use. 🙂

      • My friend, the answer to your question is, I haven’t voted for almost twenty five years. I do not take part in this system of politics, because to do so, no matter the candidate, is to enable the system to continue.

        Our entire political system is rigged, so there is no reason to vote.

        I have your site and one other bookmarked. I will be checking in my friend!

  4. No, I do not think so. the US action is understandable in internal context of US affairs and the Trump administration.

    Since Trump constantly had been failed to take action and do something in the US, he suddenly looked for an alternative to show his authority, not really start war with Syria and then Russia. however, it was a tactic which is unusual for US foreign policy, because usually US foreign policy is based on long term and at least mediums outcomes.

    However, it will effect US-Russia ties and Russians will try to do something for get back their lost show of being a super power. at the end, the outcome should be tolerated by Syrians and other victims, not the US, nor Russia.

    • “It was a tactic which is unusual for US foreign policy.” Actually it is one of the tactics of western imperialism during all history. Also, thank you for your comment my Earthling friend!
