Things are getting real.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has come out of his shell, it would seem, and he is giving some bold answers to Russia and Syria, who yesterday drew their own “red line,” in regards to further action by the U.S. against Syria.
BREAKING: Tillerson says Russia must choose between aligning with US and like-minded countries or with Assad, Iran and Hezbollah.

This makes for a good place to reiterate: Russia is NOT our friend!
Tillerson, who once received the Order of Friendship award from Russia, isn’t sounding very friendly now.

No word from Russia yet, but their interests in Syria and alignment with Syria and Iran runs deep. The idea that our Secretary of State is treating them as if they can be reasoned with now seems rather ludicrous.
