A potential hot war between Russia and the coalition of the United States, Britain and France might have inched closer to reality tonight, as a strong statement was issued by the Russian Ambassador to the United States of America in reponse to tonight's coalition air strikes on Syria.
Russian Federation has questioned the rationale for U.S. air strikes on Syria, which have lit up the Damascus sky.
Three sites were hit in Syria overnight - two in Damascus and one in Homs - all of which were linked to the storage, or alleged testing of chemical weapons.
The action followed a week of threats of retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, outside Damascus, where Syrian forces have always been battling rebels.
"First the "Arab spring" tested the Syrian people, then Islamic State, now smart American rockets".
Foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook: "Those behind all this claim moral leadership in the world and declare they are exceptional".

Earlier, while talking to News18, referring to rape cases in India, Asha Devi said, "We have a weak judicial system. I myself haven't visited my son", said Khajuria's mother, Darshana Devi.
"You have to be quite abnormal to attack Syria's capital just at the moment when it had a chance for a peaceful future".
Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible.
"The worst fears were justified: our warnings were ignored, a script prepared in advance is being put into practice, and again we are threatened".
In a televised address from the White House, Trump said he had ordered United States armed forces to launch "precision strikes" associated with Assad's chemical weapons capabilities. "We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences".
"What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"
Russian Federation has condemned US, UK and French strikes against targets in Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons as the Western allies argued they were essential to deter the future use of illegal munitions.
