Russia retaliates to US bombing
In response the Russian Foreign Ministry (RFM) has suspended a memorandum of agreement with the US that prevents military conflict between the two countries. The memo required them to exchange information on military flights over Syria to avoid confrontation. The RFM considers the US missile attack as a "gross, obvious and unwarranted violation of international law." Talk about calling kettle black, since Russia does the same thing on a regular basis. Still, tensions seem to be escalating between the superpowers.
