Tillerson did not rule out the re-use of force in response to the use of chemical weapons

51
Washington's requirements on the inadmissibility of the use of chemical weapons during conflicts are absolutely serious, before the US Navy has already demonstrated what the consequences may be, reports TASS Statement by Secretary Rex Tillerson.




The head of the department recalled that, in the opinion of the United States, Russia bears "special responsibility" for preventing such attacks in Syria "because of the obligations they have taken on the destruction of chemical weapons."

He noted that this position is not very different from the attitudes of the previous US administration.

I think the only difference is the consequences. And the president (Donald Trump) has already demonstrated that the consequences will be,
said tillerson.

As in April last year, we are serious in our demands that chemical weapons should not become a regular and usual means in any conflict,
added on.

Recall that in April, on the orders of Trump, the US Navy 2017 launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a military airfield in the Syrian province of Homs. According to the president, the missile attack was a response to the alleged use of chemical weapons in the province of Idlib. The White House then claimed that it was from this airfield that Syrian airplanes with chemical weapons were taken aboard.

          This is because they believed in their monopoly right to strike at anyone they like based on the use of chemical weapons by someone. Maybe it’s time for us to make the same statement and express our readiness to strike for the use of chemical weapons at our discretion with blaming the United States? So to speak as a "mirror".

The Syrians will work. And unite, feeling that individually they will not be able to survive. We protect their _statehood_.
      The goals of protecting Syria’s statehood are a completely different matter. And this is not oil.

    Here make it clear to me. We are the military allies of Syria. Last year, the Syrian troops beat the tomahawks openly. Just one country, calmly took it, and fucked up on another. This is not just an act of aggression. This is essentially a declaration of war. At the same time, the remaining members of the so-called coalition (and Israel) calmly continue their action, methodically bombing parts of the SAR. I remind you that the Russian Federation is a military ally of the ATS. Does it mean that attacking the ATS attacked the Russian Federation. And does it mean that there has long been a war between the Russian Federation and the coalition + Israel.?

    Knowing the impending provocation by the "partners" against Syria, it is necessary to transfer additional air defense means (Armor, Torah, Buki) in advance to the Syrian armed forces to successfully repel aggression from the air, to make up PMC fighters who know how and want to avenge combat comrades. Israel should be warned not to go into this landfill, because after all, in case of accidental violation of its border, it did not begin to shoot down a Russian plane ... Only when NATO aircraft do not return to bases in droves, then in France, Britain, the USA will finally think about curtailing the Syrian adventure. And the Russian military has a real opportunity to test the effectiveness (or not effectiveness, by drawing the appropriate conclusions) of its air defense against real opponents, unofficially!

    Ahh, as old as the world, again come in with fifty axes, Russian radars will not see twenty and quickly say that they shot down thirty (and why feel sorry for them) and announce victory. Something there will explode forty-nine times, then the Americans will declare victory and that all missiles (except one) have reached the goal and a strict warning. Assad will immediately run to the UN, where Russia will support and America will announce a veto. And only the Iranians who started it will sit and grin rather.
