Trump signals strikes against Syria, lays into Assad ally Russian Federation

Trump signals strikes against Syria, lays into Assad ally Russian Federation

Trump had earlier tweeted "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Speaking to new ambassadors on Wednesday, Putin said: "The state of world affairs can not but cause anxiety". The situation in the world is becoming more and more chaotic.

The Russian head of state made the comments amid rising speculation that the United States was gearing up to orchestrate a military strike against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, under the pretext that he carried out a gas attack against its own people in the Syrian town of Douma, Eastern Ghouta, late on Saturday.

Russian Federation relations plunged to a new low today (April 11) with President Donald Trump saying that Moscow-Washington ties are worse than ever before.

Amid an argument with Russian Federation over the prospect of missile strikes, President Trump's national security team huddled Wednesday about how to respond to a reported chemical weapons attack in Syria.

A top adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei also appeared to respond to Trump's threats, telling state TV that Tehran would support Damascus against any "foreign aggression". "Iran backs Syria in its fight against America and the Zionist Regime (Israel)", Ali Akbar Velayati said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor group reported that pro-government forces were evacuating major airports and military airbases.

Lewis Hamilton says inexperience costing Max Verstappen results
Days after referring to Max Verstappen as a "dickhead", Lewis Hamilton claims that the youngster is letting his team down. But to the surprise of the journalist, Vettel jumped to Hamilton's rescue asking if he could answer the question .

The Foreign Ministry in Damascus denounced President Donald Trump's threat to attack the country as "reckless" and a danger to global peace and security.

In response, a former British commander of the Joint Forces Command, General Sir Richard Barrons, warned in an interview with BBC Radio 4's 'Today" program, "I hope the ambassador has chosen his words very carefully because what he's actually saying is, if the usa and allies decide to strike against Syrian chemical weapons and delivery aircraft, not only are they going to try and shoot down the missiles in flight - which they are capable of doing but won't be with total success - but by saying the words, "launch platforms' he's saying they are going to try and sink ships, sink submarines and shoot aircraft out of the sky".

In response to Trump's tweet, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said later on Wednesday that Moscow would steer clear from "Twitter-diplomacy" and rather engage in "serious approaches".

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Russian Federation was seeking "unbiased investigation before delivering verdicts", the Tass news agency reported. "We will work to build good relationships with all of our partners around the globe". The military expenditure of the United States is up to $700bn.

The agencies said the Russian delegation included the governor of an oil-rich Siberian region and that several lawmakers had arrived earlier on Wednesday.
