Syria is Russia's ally. How will the Russian Federation respond? They cannot allow

Trump's naked military aggression to stand. Trump did not seek a UN Security Council resolution (just like Bush refused to do with Iraq). Thus, Trump and the U.S. have once again blatantly violated international law. So how will Putin respond? And President Ping of China? Those are the other two guarantors of the existing world order.

putin major hope is getting rid of sanctions. If he tosses Syria under the bus, he'll be looking for that reward.
