US Braces For Putin’s Power Russia Accidentally Exposes Weakness

The United States and Russia have been involved in a game of tug-of-war as they try to become more powerful than the other. Tensions remain high as many fear the United States is pushing Russia to its limit, although recent Syrian efforts seem to indicate that Moscow is not as powerful as many would believe. Will the world come to a world war?

US Hawks Afraid of Putin’s Power?

Many experts agree that there are officials in the United States who are eager to escalate the Syrian war into a full-blown conflict. The argument is that officials want to reiterate to the world that America remains a superpower despite threats from countries like China and Russia. However, analysts also fear that such move could backfire on America and plunge the world into further chaos.

“The fact that the government of Bashar al-Assad is still standing after the West has spent the last five years trying to overthrow it is too much for many in the US to accept,” claimed Global Research.

The report added that the growing number of major powers mobilizing beyond the control of the West is alarming U.S. imperialists, especially since the global landscape could change.

The report suggests that there are entities in the United States trying to convince the world that Russia and Iran are responsible for many things.

“We need to make the Iranians pay a price in Syria. We need to make the Russians pay a price,” stated former Acting Director of the CIA and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member, Michael Morell.

Russia’s Air Weakness

According to another report from Reuters, Russia’s efforts in Aleppo could also reveal weakness of Russian forces especially its air capabilities. The strike against Aleppo rebels appeared to have barely achieved anything.

“I get the feeling we’re like a horse at the circus, running around in a circle since Sept. 30 when we first deployed our aircraft there,” explained a person close to the Russian defense ministry, who revealed the details on the condition of anonymity.

“Our forces are insufficient, our coordination with the Iranians is not at the required level. We need to change something. What, I don’t know.”
