The Idlib mounting assault against the rebel-held enclave of Idlib is escalating into war of words between the United States, Russia, and to a lesser degree the United Nations.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday the Syrian government had every right to chase militants out of Idlib. The problem with these hollow words is that both Chemical Assad and Thug Putin, in the process, bomb children’s hospitals, civilian markets, and whole neighborhood where the ratio of Islamist to innocent civilian ratio is 100 to 1.

Idlib is home to 30,000 Islamist fighters, but it is also home to 3 million civilians. That’s a ratio of 100 civilians for every one Islamist fighter. To clean the region of Islamists, Putin would not hesitate, in the Idlib mounting assault, to kill tens of thousands of civilians along the way. The thug does not distinguish between fighters ans civilians. Just ask the Afghani and Chechnyan civilians.

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said the United States views Assad military assault on Idlib as an escalation of the Syrian conflict, as the State Department warned that Washington would respond to any chemical attack by Damascus.

Pompeo blasted Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Twitter for “defending (the) Syrian and Russian assault.”

In another tweet, Pompeo hinted to the humanitarian crisis an Idlib assault might cause.

Assault on Idlib Empowers Putin in Europe

Inevitably, the Idlib mounting assault will lead to another Syrian exodus towards Europe. Such will help Putin consolidate his power among the far-right nationalist political parties becoming a threat to European democracies. Remember Hitler?

In another news, UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) said that more than a million Syrian children are at risk in the event of a government military assault on the rebel-held province of Idlib.

Manuel Fontaine, UNICEF director of emergency programs, said that the agency has drawn up contingency plans including providing clean water and nutritional supplies to some of the estimated 450,000 to 700,000 people who could flee an attack.
