US President Donald Trump's national security adviser John Bolton warned Wednesday that the United States would respond "very strongly" if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons in an offensive to retake Idlib province: 

"... if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons we will respond very strongly and they really ought to think about this a long time."

Propaganda. no one believes this ASSadist BS, expect RT slaves. Continue ignoring Russian bombs vs civilians in Syria, Afganistan, Ukraine and on and on.

Let's remember Ghouta gas attack in 2013. 1500 people were killed by Assad's Sarin or this twitter.com/worldonalert/statu…

The USA pro-war nutters are deluded. Their threat of a "strong response" has been made many times before, and the USA military did almost NOTHING because they knew that Russia will never give-up on their only warm water naval port or their closest ally in the Middle East. They can't convince the rest of the world to believe the Western lies either.

That's probably why Putin should be more steadfast when it comes to provocations from the US and Israel. See this article: Putin’s Hesitation Has Lost Syria’s Idlib Province

Putin is acting like a typical Russian leader, they never react immediately. There's an old saying about the Russians taking a long time to get on the horse but once they do, their charge is unstoppable. Putin also is known for getting revenge long after the slight that was made against him. It's not "hesitation" due to the reasons that author seems to believe. There's always another layer to Putin's game. It took the Russians years to come to Syria's aid, but since they did, they've been devastating.

There's some unconfirmed crap I've seen claiming that Turkey and Russia agreed to set up a "demilitarized zone" around Idlib. This claim is not supported in any Russian, Syrian, or Iranian news media or by any named Russian or Turkish official that I could find.

Idlib is being surrounded and cut-off. The Russians, Iranians, and Syrians are doing what they've done before; surround, lay seige, gradually tighten the noose for about 2 months - then smash the hell of the place when they're good and ready. They've asked the last terrorists groups to surrender, knowing that they won't. This gives them a pretext for comes next. Since the terrorists won't surrender, the next step is when special forces units go from building to building, block to block, killing everyone that looks even slightly like a muslim fanatic. They've done this before. They'll leave none alive except the civilians they find. They've become very good at this.

I largely agree but neither Turkey nor the US intend to leave Syria when the terrorists have been eradicated. They have already established themselves comfortably (but illegally) on Syrian soil. Iran will probably also stay to support Hezbollah against Israeli attacks, so it's a rather complex and dangerous scenario lying ahead. I hope it can be resolved by peaceful means and that's probably also what Putin would like to happen.
