Image result for Putin claims Trump is repeating Bush's mistake in Iraq

Russian President Vladimir Putin compared the recent U.S. strike against Syrian President Bashar Assad to George W. Bush's decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

“This resembles very much the situation of 2003 and the war in Iraq,” Putin said during a press conference Tuesday. “First of all, there was a campaign launched in Iraq and it finished with the destruction of the country, the growth of the terrorist threat and the emergence of [the Islamic State] on the international arena.”

That statement continued a line of criticism Russia and its allies are making in front of the United Nations, as they cast doubt on U.S. and Western European conclusions that Assad's regime is responsible for the April 4 chemical weapons attack. The Bolivian government invoked the failure to find Iraqi weapons of mass destruction during Friday's security council meeting and Putin suggested that the Unired States might stage a chemical weapons attack to justify another bombing of Syria.
