PRESIDENT TRUMP TELLS IRAN YOU ‘MADE A VERY BIG MISTAKE’ AS PUTIN IN RUSSIA WARNS AMERICA THAT WAR WILL HAVE ‘CATASTROPHIC CONSEQUENCES’ by Geoffrey Grider for Now The End Begins
President Trump said on Twitter that Iran “made a very big mistake!” His comments come as Russian President Vladimir Putin warned US against using force on Iran, saying it would have catastrophic consequences. Speaking on Thursday during a televised call-in show, Putin said the US military action against Iran would be a “catastrophe for the region as a minimum.” He added that it would trigger an escalation of hostilities with unpredictable results. Iran said it’s “ready for war” after shooting down a US “spy” drone today as tensions continue to rise in the Persian Gulf.
U.S. military officials returned fire verbally hours after Iran blasted a Navy high-altitude drone out of the sky over the Strait of Hormuz, with U.S. Central Command leaders on Thursday slamming the “unprovoked” strike. Russia warns of ‘Catastrophic Consequences’ should war break out
As President Trump this morning blasted Iran, telling them that they made a ‘very big mistake’ in downing the US surveillance drone, over in Russia Vladimir Putin weighed in with a veiled threat to America saying any military action in the region would come at the cost of ‘catastrophic consequences’. And just like that, 3 nations stand on the brink of war. What will likely happen next?
The United States has a number of options, but certainly something has to be done. Iran cannot openly strike against America and expect no reprisals of any kind. Russia knows this, and up to a certain point, will not intervene if the US decides on a pointed but limited military response. Such was the case in Syria in 2018 when President Trump ordered a military strike on that nation in response to the chemical attacks by Assad on his own people. 59 Tomahawk missiles were fired and Russia did absolutely nothing. But that was then, and this is now, as the old saying goes.
