The Iranian government reluctantly joins the Russian government in condemning an American missile strike on Syria.

The attack came in response to an alleged chemical attack by the Syrian government on its own people.

The Trump Administration makes effort to seem decisive on Middle Eastern matters and strike back against an inhumane act, went ahead with the missile strike last week.

Russia came out denouncing the attack, challenging the American version of what actually happened. Along with them came the Iranian government.

Although, the Iranian government is currently allies with Russia,it has had a long, tense relationship with the Kremlin. There have been scares of expansion and domination in the past, and by letting Soviet planes use Iranian bases, Iranian officials are seemingly feeling that fear again.

Many Iranians also believe that the bombing is only a symbolic showing of force, a way for Trump to show how he is more assertive than previous U.S. President Barack Obama.
