Russia warns U.S. about intervening in Syria. United States Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, indicated that troops are ready for action in the region. According to CNN on Aug. 27, 2013, this comes amid a high amount of diplomatic activity.
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Secretary of State John Kerry both consulted allies and indicated potential imminent action by a coalition likely to include key NATO partners and regional powers.
As recently as yesterday, Russia warns U.S. against military action when foreign minister Sergei Lavrov spoke out in, "Russia warns U.S.: Foreign Minister cautions against attack on Syria." U.S. warships are in the area with cruise missiles on board. Hagel stated that forces are ready to carry out a strike and can do so quickly.
Even though Russia warns U.S. about military action, the U.S military is ready to carry out those options. President Barack Obama has not yet decided what action, if any, to take yet. Kerry claims that there is undeniable evidence that a chemical weapons attack was carried out; even before UN inspectors have completed an investigation. Russia claims that it has provided the investigators with evidence that the attack was carried out by the rebels, not the Syrian government
