A Syrian-based coalition that also includes Russia and Iran has warned President Donald Trump, whose surveillance documents were viewed by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes on White House grounds, that it will take retaliatory action against the United States for the Administration's missile attacks on Syria. Trump ordered the missile attacks in retaliation for Bashar al-Assad's chemical and nerve gas attack on his people that killed over 70 people, at least 10 of whom were children. The Coalition, which calls itself "The Joint Command Operation Center of Syrian Allies," according to ABC News, promised that as a result of the retaliatory actions that they will be taking, the United States would no longer be the only superpower in the world.

The 'Redline.'

The Joint Command Coalition stated that when it attacked Syria, the United States "crossed (the) Red line." The statement continued, stating that "America knows very well our ability and capabilities to respond well to them," according to ABC News. Although the declaration did not precisely state what kind of military action is considered to be "crossing" the red line, it did emphatically state that the Coalition would seek to "liberate" Syria from foreign occupation. The statement, which did not hold back, ended by promising that "Russia and Iran will not allow the United States to be the only superpower in (the) world," according to ABC News.

American lawmakers speak out

The Coalition's statement, which included a warning that they are "watching" everything the United States is doing in northern Syria and the southwestern region of Iraq, was made in response to comments from various American members of Congress.

In those statements, the lawmakers alleged that Russia might have played a role in the chemical/nerve gas attack that took place in Syria against Syrian civilians.

California Congressman Adam Schiff, (D), stated that he believes that Russia was "complicit" in the chemical/nerve gas attack. Schiff, talking on ABC News' program "This Week" on Sunday, stated that although Russian intelligence is not as advanced as that of the United States, that "It's good enough to know the Syrians had chemical weapons, (and) were using chemical weapons," according to ABC News.

Russia fails to fulfill promise

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, speaking in an earlier "This Week" interview, stated that he had not seen any "hard evidence" that Russia was involved in Syria's chemical/nerve gas attack upon its own citizens. However, Tillerson did state that Russia had been given the responsibility of "guaranteeing" that Syria gets rid of its chemical weapons under an agreement that was signed in 2013.

Tillerson described the Russians as having been "incompetent" in carrying out the terms of the agreement.

Calls for Trump's impeachment

Meanwhile, Trump has other things to worry about in addition to threats from the Joint Command Coalition. The city of Cambridge, Massachusetts has joined several other cities, including Berkeley, California, in calling for Donald Trump's impeachment. The calls for impeachment are based upon Trump's failure to divest himself of his business interests while President and signing over control of such interests to his adult sons instead. To date, no member of Congress has introduced any articles of impeachment; but the Trump presidency still is less than six months old. Time will tell, and America will be watching.
