Russia: America Has Started World War 3 In Syria

Fact checked
Russia claims that US has started World War 3 in Syria

The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation has accused the U.S. of igniting World War 3 by deliberately killing Syrian troops and aiding ISIS terrorists. 

Top Russian military officials have warned that the U.S. deliberately killed 62 servicemen in order to provoke a war against Russia. reports:

Sputnik News reported September 18 that top Russian military officials are questioning the veracity of their American counterparts who claim that the airstrike on the Syrian military base was a mistake. But one Russian official, First Deputy Chairman of the Defense and Security Committee and Federation Council member Franz Klintsevich, told Russian news agency RIA Novosti that he believes the coordinated attack by two F-16 fighter jets and two A10 ground attack aircraft — which originated out of Iraq — was deliberate.

“The US conducted airstrikes on government forces in Syria deliberately and thoughtfully. Any aerial operation is coordinated with commanders on the ground. In this case [the US] used information received from their intelligence units who infiltrated Daesh [derogatory term for ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria].”

Others have been more restrained in their allegations toward the United States. Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov noted that if the U.S. airstrike was accidental, the incident was “a direct consequence of the US’ unwillingness to coordinate its actions against terrorist groups with Russia.”

Klintsevich pointed out that the airstrike was in line with policymaking in Washington, which takes the position that Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, should be deposed and replaced by the U.S.-backed rebels. He said that the U.S. was acting to “maintain their economic interests” in the area.

Accusations and allegations aside, all agreed that the cease-fire being negotiated between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva was in jeopardy.

Russia’s United Nations envoy, Vitaly Churkin, stated that he found the timing of the U.S. airstrike “suspicious,” given the ongoing cease-fire negotiations. He said that “some aspects of the situation suggest that it could have well been a provocation.” But, he was quick to add, the attack did not necessarily mean that the ceasefire deal was over.

It is unclear whether or not the U.S. airstrike against the Syrian Army base at Deir ez-Zor had anything to do with the several bombings in late July of a U.S. base in Syria. According to the Wall Street Journal (via Fox News), U.S. defense and intelligence officials reported that Russian aircraft had bombed a base maintained by U.S. and British forces, and had done so again 90 minutes after being warned that it was not to be targeted. The officials said they believed that Russia was attempting to pressure the U.S. into coordinating its air war with the Russian military.

Heightened tensions have only increased fears of an escalation of events in the region to the point of World War 3. Of course, this has been an ongoing concern since Russia entered the multinational fray (September 30, 2015, according to BBC News), ostensibly to join in the fight against ISIS but seen by the world as to act as an ally and prop for the then tottering regime of Bashar al-Assad. Regardless, Russia’s entrance also increased the chances of accidental incidents that could quickly spiral into military confrontations — incidents like Russia bombing a known American base and the U.S. bombing a known Syrian Army base. (Russian officials have also voiced concern over the possibility, after Saturday’s attack, that the U.S. could mistakenly bomb a Russian airbase.)

Similar scenarios of a potential World War 3 trigger have been presented before. In a September 2015 article, the Telegraph offered that the advent of World War 3 could very well be a confrontation or accident in Syria’s crowded skies.

“Indeed, the skies over Syria are starting to get dangerously crowded, with Russian jets flying near US planes on bombing runs, and sparring with NATO air defenses in neighboring Turkey.”

For the record, Turkey is also now involved in the war inside Syria. As reported by Al Jazeera, tensions with Russia escalated in November when a Turkish fighter shot down a Russian bomber that was claimed to have entered Turkish airspace and repeatedly warned to depart the area.

The U.S. airstrike against the Syrian Army base is just the latest incident of potential diplomatic and political calamity in an already volatile region of the world. According to the New York Times, American military officials admitted that U.S. pilots had targeted a Syrian Army base, but the pilots had thought they were attacking ISIS facilities in the area. A senior Obama administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told the Times that the United States had stated its regrets to Syria’s government through the Russians for the “unintentional loss of life of Syrian forces” in the ongoing war against ISIS.

Will historians one day look back on the events of the last few months as the precursors to World War 3? Or will they go back further to when Russia entered the conflict? Of course, historians could go even further back to the creation of the caliphate of the Islamic State or even the creation of ISIS. Regardless, for now, World War 3 history is only the province of speculation, but the fears of a major multinational conflict, given the historical ease with which other world wars have begun, are founded in realistic potentialities.


  1. The inevitability of the inevitable agenda of the dogs of war seems to have arrived; their days of perdition’s end and the unseen are at our door steps knocking with their fists and snarling in our face. Yet, their fall awaits them!

  2. The USA military is legend for mistakes’. All their technology CIA etc and they dont know their a–e   from their elbow. Its a serious flaw

    • Lets face it they don’t make mistakes even when they claim to there always sucker punching someone then look round all surprised saying it wasn’t me. I say wipe out the banking cartels and Israel and the world may be a better place at least there won’t be anyone to tell the muppets what to do

  3. @Putin  –  SAVE Syria… take out the INSTIGATORS..
     Delete the Elite!  So sick of the Western propaganda..
    If the USA / Nato & U.N. would mind their own business.. there would be peace in the world
    ‘innocent’ casualties are WARCRIMES..
    Probably ISIS flying those USA planes..

  4. So basically Russian and American  governments are so eager to drop bombs on ISIS that they are now killing each other. Good Job folks……

  5. Don’t say this now. Obama will have a reason to stick around when he is gone we will be able to do what we should without opposition and fear of constant under hand deals.

    • In australia media says it was a mistake and mistakes can be made during war time! So doesn’t MH17 qualify as a mistake during war time!  Australia called for blood then now its silent!  Western hypocrites! 

  6. In years to come, the UN Security Council will be most likely disappear.  Every Super Power nation is “riding over” each other… Every Super Power is fighting to become the world’s Most Powerful Nation.

    • You’re Absolutely Right
      Propaganda is only a Politician Away
      Rights and Freedoms take Precedence over Poverty and Profit.

      Laws don’t exist for the Government- and that’s why there is no Justice for Citizens.

      Law Makers have Legislated Crime for themselves. “Animal Farm” by any other name or Term.

      Democracy exists if You’re Deaf, Dumb and Blind.

      I feel the exact same way – I would like to see a Revolution-
      Icelander’s know how to Hold their Government Accountable- Many other Countries Could learn from their Example.!

      Absolutely Sickening that in “All of America” 
      The 2 BEST CANDATES FOR A PRESIDENT are Hillary Clinton and Donald  Trump!  That’s because too many People are Blind Sighted by Conflict- which the Governments Create and Thrive on.

  8. There’s way too much money spent on wars; that could be put to use helping people.

    Our Government in Canada; Ignores the fact that there’s over 2250 Homeless Veterans… Not to mention- the Corruption of the Workers Compensation Boards (World Wide).

    Our Countries fight wars- and Invade Counties to Liberate them- like the Libyan War.

    Yet; Most of them in Libya had it better than we do!

    “Libya and Libyan “dictator” Muammar Gaddafi:”

    1. Electricity is free for all Libyans.

    2. Loans in Libya are free with 0% interest as banks are state owned.

    3. Homes are considered a human right in Libya – Gaddafi vowed that his parents would not get a house until everyone in Libya had a home. Gaddafi’s father has died while him, his wife and his mother were still living in a tent.

    4. All newly married people in Libya receive US$ 50,000 by the government to buy their first home to help the new family.

    5. Medical treatment and education are free in Libya. Before Colonel Muammar Gaddafi ruled the country, only 25% of Libyans were literate. Today the figure is around 83%.

    6. If Libyans wanted to take up farming as a career, the government funded people from equipment to seeds, all for free.

    7. The government subsidised 50% of the price of a new car if a Libyan citizen wanted to buy their first car.

    8. Petrol price in Libya is around $0.14 per litre.

    9. Libya has no debt externally and its reserves amounts to $150 billion – now globally frozen.

    10. The Libyan government would fund anyone who got a degree and if they could not get employment, and they would receive income as if they were employed until they got a job.

    11. The sale of Libyan oil is credited directly to the bank accounts of all Libyan citizens in proportion.

    12. A family would get US $5,000 if they had a new baby to support the childs upbringing.

    13. 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs around $0.15.

    14. 25% of Libyans have a university degree.

    Do you still think Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was really a BAD leader??? If so, read on.…/Was-Muammar-Gaddafi-Really-A…

    It’s a Well Know Fact- that the U.S. and Britain- are Consistently – Starting Wars and Invading other Countries… for Power-
    If it were for Human Rights- They only need look in their own Backyards.

    Unfortunately, They Draw Other Countries into their Conflicts!

  9. The same thing Obama used Hilary Clinton to do in Lybia against late Gaddafi is the same thing he is using John Kerry to do in Syria but I promise him that he will fail in Syria and John Kerry should be ready to face War Crime at Hague by the incoming President of America Donald Johnson Trump

  10. The US do not control the World , but think they do via the Zionists …. They will never dominate Russia or China , by feeding splinter groups with weapons and skills . NATO are but puppets ! There greed will distroy them ! Marshall law is just around corner within in America , they have many Vipers inn their nest !
