Due to the recent chemical attacks that have been blamed on the Syrian government, the U.S has organized a meeting with Russia to discuss the alliance between Putin and the Assad regime. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson displayed the contempt towards Russia's alliance. He attempted to persuade the Russian government to come to terms with the U.S in an effort to create another alliance with other western countries. Putin, understanding the tension increase has stated that he has "information" that there are extremists who plan to plant a chemical bomb and blame it on the Syrian government. He also took a blow at the ex-President George W. Bush administrations invasion of Iraq as a comparison to the recent missile strikes on Syrian military bases (basically saying that they were both witch hunts). Putin believes that the tensions between the U.S and Russia are higher now than during the Cold War. Do you believe this? Do you think that it could escalate to even a World War III situation? Do you think that Putin will end his alliance with Syria?
