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!

“Let’s step back for one moment and realize the gravity of what happened. This is the leader of a global superpower speaking nonchalantly about launching a military strike that could kill soldiers from Syria and Russia, another nuclear-armed country and staunch Syrian ally. It’s unsettling that Trump made this kind of statement at all — and it’s even more jarring that he tweeted it.”
