The long-running US and Russian proxy war in Syria has been largely forgotten of late, but suddenly snapped back into international headlines with John Bolton’s warning Assad and Russia this week that Washington will respond with “greater military force” should claims of a Syrian government chemical attack emerge in Idlib.

In response, Russia subsequently warned of a staged “chemical provocation” coming and it appears a war of words is yet again ratcheting up over Syria, which has the very real potential of turning into an actual war.
