President Trump denounced Russia and Iran for their relationship with Syria in his Friday night address to the nation about bombing Syria.
TRUMP: To Iran and to Russia, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children? The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep.
No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants and murderous dictators. In 2013, President Putin and his government promised the world that they would guarantee the elimination of Syriaâ€™s chemical weapons. Assadâ€™s recent attack and todayâ€™s response are the direct result of Russiaâ€™s failure to keep that promise.
Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace. Hopefully, someday weâ€™ll get along with Russia and maybe even Iran, but maybe not.
