The official spokesperson of the US State Department, John Kirby, stated that his words on possible terrorist attacks in Russia in the event of a worsening of the situation in Syria were not intended as a threat.
“I didn’t threaten anyone. It was the facts. And these facts are not new. The question was, what are the implications for Russia,” Kirby informed journalists, noting that he was merely repeating the words of US State Secretary John Kerry that there would be “more war and more blood.” He also added that assuming these words were an “incitement to terrorism” is “totally false.”
On this note, Russian folklore has a precise diagnosis in the saying “If the claw is stuck, then the whole bird is done for” [which roughly translates into English as “Once the line is crossed, there is no going back” – J. Arnoldski]. In the face of its official representative John Kirby, the US State Department has burned itself in the most obvious and irreversible way.
Now, no matter how they spin this, they understand that Russia now has 200% reason to blame the US for directly inciting terrorist attacks.
Even a complete idiot understands that if official Washington “allows for” an increase in the “risk of terrorism” for any country whose policies displease the US, then relevant organizations such as the Islamic State will perceive such as a clear signal that the US “understands” that such consequences would be “natural and inevitable.” Since this is how things stand and the US State Department stated earlier that only Russia is to blame, then what more questions can be asked?
If, God forbid, terrorist attacks are carried out against Russian citizens, then America’s hands are far from clean. But Vladimir Putin does need to learn how to fight against terrorists and their accomplices. The Russian president has shown the greatest patience and correctness, and he will do so until the moment that they start killing Russian citizens. But after this happens, there will be quite another Putin. The Putin will appear who once promised in Chechnya to “waste terrorists in the outhouse” using all available means.
This was experienced by Turkish President Erdogan himself on his own skin. The same unpleasant experiences today are being felt by the Kiev godfather, Poroshenko, who dared to raise a finger against Russians in Crimea. The US is no exception to this rule, even if they fancy to be such. They simply do not know the bad side of Russians, and they will not be happy when they find out. I would advise them against this.
