Expert: Foreign Ministry must make the world safe from collision with the US Russia
"Our air defense systems are designed to protect the sky over our base in Tartus and Hmeymim area. But if we bring down the US missile over the whole territory controlled by the Syrian government forces, it threatens a direct clash with the United States, "- said the newspaper VIEW, Professor of Moscow State University, an expert on the Middle East, Vladimir Isayev.
The current incident is "very dangerous. He provokes the aggravation of the situation in the Middle East and threatens a direct confrontation between Russia and the US "- said the expert.
On Friday night, US President Donald Trump ordered Missile to Air Force Base Shayrat Syria, motivated by the fact that the alleged chemical attack with her was made in April 4.
"These events are removed for our public euphoria over the election of the president of the Donald Trump" - said Isayev. "Trump, first of all, the US president, he pursues his goal and show by their actions that will be led by the same military-industrial complex, which requires justification for the money that MIC endless demands from American taxpayers," - said Isaev. The current missile strike was the "direct evidence of this relationship," he added.
Further developments depend largely on from the actions of the different parties, including Russia. "While our air defense systems primarily designed to protect the sky over our base in Hmeymim and near Tartus», - the expert noted, recalling that since they are able to shoot down cruise missiles, there, of course, Americans do not climb. And in those areas where the US bombing, Russian air defense systems there.
"The fact that we are in the eyes of our allies are beginning to lose its image.

"
So that Russia and the United States, "if there were some kind of brains", the challenge is to prevent such a development, Isayev stressed. He noted that the discussion should take place not only by the UN Security line, for sure, it will go about this, and during the visit of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. In any case, "now our Foreign Ministry should take some measures to protect the world from such a collision", - the expert said.

NYT: Trump Tricks with Russia will not pass on Syria
The American edition says that although the US bombing in Syria give some advantages Trump administration, but carry serious risks.
Causing air strikes in Syria, US President Donald Trump can relieve the feeling of confusion in his administration that emerged in recent years, says New York Times. It will also enable him to demand from Vladimira Putina to restrain or remove from office the President of Syria Bashar al-Assad, says the publication. In addition, it determines the content of the meeting, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with the president of Russia.
Chemical attack allegedly perpetrated by the Syrian government in Idlib, Trump forced the administration to act, former Assistant Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, US.
During his election campaign, Trump called unwillingness Baraka Obamy tough response to the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government in 2013, the symbol of American weakness that should never be repeated. Thus, the present actions were predetermined Trump, says the NYT.
At the same time such US president steps are significant risks, the newspaper notes. The first is that Trump tricks with Russia will not pass through Syria. Putin is unlikely to accept a deal that would threaten its influence in Syria, according to the NYT.
The second risk, according to the newspaper, is that by directing their forces against Assad, Trump is moving away from reaching its main objective in the region - the victory over the "Islamic State *." If Syria falls, it can become a haven for IG * and other Islamists.
The third risk, according to the NYT, the fact that Trump has no real plan for peace in Syria. to achieve a political agreement talks in Syria have failed even when the former Secretary of State John Kerry. And the current foreign minister, Rex Tillerson shows reluctance to start new.
NYT calls the action Trump forced. At the same time, the publication stresses that now the main question is whether the new administration will be able to transform its military intervention in more than a symbolic show of force.
