Iran's Terrifying Message To Assad And Syria Is Sure To Get Trump's Attention

After President Donald Trump's administration carried out an attack on a Syrian airbase last week, the Russian and Iranian governments are furious with the U.S. They've released a joint statement condemning the act, and the Iranian president has advised Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad to 'make Americans regret' the attack.

"The Syrian people and army must give a response (to the US) that makes Americans regret their attack," said President Hassan Rouhani in a statement.

The statement came on the heels of a joint statement issued by Iran and Russia condemning the American attack. Both governments believed President Trump crossed the 'red line' when launching the missile, and both have vowed to 'respond with force' to any American aggressions.

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is heavily suspected of being behind a chemical attack on his own people by many world leaders. Assad denies the allegations, and both the Iranian and Russian governments are backing him up.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claims any government committing crimes against its own people were going to be held accountable, according to CNN.

Boris Johnson, U.K. Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, has called for sanctions against Russia if they do not revoke their support for Assad. He has said Russian President Vladimir Putin is "toxifying the image of Russia" by backing Assad.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned Assads 'bloody actions' and says Assad can’t remain leader of Syria.

“There is no question that anyone who is guilty of the types of war crimes against innocents, against children — that Assad and his regime are — needs to be held to account, and we need to move as quickly as possible toward peace and stability in Syria that does not involve Bashar al-Assad,” Trudeau said.

The 42nd G7 summit is approaching, and representatives from America, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan could decide to impose sanctions on Russia. Putin is not expected to take any sanctions well, notes the Russian Embassy of London.

"If yesterday's statement by @BorisJohnson to be trusted, RTillerson will deliver G7 ultimatum to Moscow next week. What are probable outcomes?" the Embassy tweeted. They suggested an ultimatum would lead to a “war of clowns, war of muses, a conventional war or a mix of the above.”
