Many people have gotten very confused with Russia over their latest warning. With a country that has spent many months upsetting governments around the world with their bullying tactics and illegal moves against the Ukraine, they have now warned America and President Obama over launching air strikes against Islamic State, Syria.

Hours after Barack Obama announced about an open-ended campaign of air strikes against Islamic State, Syria and its allies, Moscow retorted with an equally stern warning against such action.

The Syrian government, along with Moscow and Tehran warned that any attack on Syria without a UN sanction would be considered ‘an act of aggression’ although the announcement from President Obama gained a welcome response from Saudi Arabia and nine other Arab countries who gave pledges of support for any such action.

But the Syrian issue has always been a highly debated one, which meant that Obama’s announcement met different reactions. Iran expressed the suspicion of international coalition’s intention regarding their fight against root causes of terrorism.

Similarly, Russia said it would not support any military action without UN sanction. Russia made it clear that any unsanctioned action would be considered a violation of international law.

China responded ambiguously, stating that while it is appreciable to fight terrorism, sovereignty of each nation should be respected.

The Assad government in Syria retorted strongly, stating that any kind of action, which is not approved by Syrian government, would be considered an attack of Syria herself. Assad met the UN envoy in Syria and stressed on his commitment to fight terrorism. However, no comments were made upon the announcement of US President.

Experts suggest that as long as the air strike is confined exclusively to Isis, Syria will not feel the need to retaliate.

Many Americans are torn on any action by their armed forces. Some Americans believe any action would put America at a higher risk than they already are from home soil attacks while some believe the problem needs to be dealt with and dealt with now. In the UK a lot of people do not want their government to get involved. They fear that any help their armed forces and government give will put them at risk.

So with people undecided on what action to take, what should really happen and for a president who said when he came to power he wants to end all the fighting, is he not simply starting another battle?
