Russian Federation warns against snap judgments on alleged Syria chemical attack

Russian Federation warns against snap judgments on alleged Syria chemical attack

Describing the images of civilians injured by chemical weapons as "horrific", Ryder said the military option is definitely something that the U.S.is looking at and that Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Francis Dunford already met with Trump in this regard.

Trump told a meeting with military leaders and national security advisers he would make a decision by Monday night "or very shortly thereafter" on a response, adding that the United States had "a lot of options militarily" on Syria.

"We can not allow atrocities like that".

Trump spoke to France's President Emmanuel Macron for the second time in two days over the alleged attacks, with the pair expressing a "desire for a firm response from the worldwide community to these new violations of the chemical weapons ban", according to the Elysee Palace.

President Donald Trump responded to this weekend's alleged chemical attack on Monday in a press pool, striking an aggressive tone.

This time past year, Trump found himself in a similar position when he authorized a missile strike on the Shayrat Airbase in response to a chemical weapons attack on the town of Khan Shaykhun.

Seven Iranians were among the estimated 14 people killed in the missile attack, and a senior Iranian official visiting Damascus said the attack "will not remain unanswered".

The president has said a decision on the US response is imminent, and he is considering holding Syria's allies Iran and Russian Federation accountable.

Senators said it was improbable that a new Authorization for Use of Military Force could be completed before Trump might take immediate action against Syria but that if it turns into a lengthy conflict a new authorization might be needed to approve the deployment.

More than 500 people, including many children, were bought to medical centers showing signs of chemical attacks.

With West Ham stepping back off the front foot during a more relaxed second half, they remained the superior side in the contest. Thibaut Courtois is fit to start in goal, so Willy Caballero is a substitute.

The French representative at the UN Security Council said poison gas had deliberately been used as it could seep down to the basements.

Experts believe North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies will have a strong response to the situation even if a strike is not involved.

The Syrian envoy pointed out that while the United States may speak of admirable aims and claim moral high ground, one should consider whether the U.S. contribution to Syria has been to provide food and milk for Syrian children or to supply weapons to militants responsible for killing the Syrian people.

The folks who cheered Trump a week ago when he said we were getting out of Syria, will they cheer him if he announces that we are going deeper in? Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday the United States has taken an unconstructive position and is refusing to face reality.

The Syrian government has repeatedly denied ever having used chemical weapons.

"I'd like to begin by condemning the heinous attack on innocent Syrians with banned chemical weapons", Trump said.

A video posted on the Facebook page of the Douma City Coordination Committee says it shows children and adults receiving treatment and being washed down with water in a medical facility in Douma after an alleged chemical attack, which Syrian state media and the regime's ally Russian Federation have denounced as "fabrications". "In this context, we are taking action with all means, over time".

So, how likely is it that President Trump will respond with tougher action against Russian Federation and Syrian President Assad this time? "Were talking about humanity, and it cant be allowed to happen", he said. Hence, Congress, prior to such an attack, should pass a resolution authorizing a USA war on Syria.

An American official said the USA was discussing with allies whether they would participate in a retaliatory strike. Trump promised a response even if his administration decides that Russian Federation is responsible.
