Indications show Syrian authorities were behind chemical attack, says UK PM May

Defying Russian warnings against USA military strikes in Syria, President Donald Trump said Wednesday that missiles "will be coming" in response to Syria's suspected chemical attack that killed at least 40 people.

"Get ready, Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart".

UKTheresa May could be heading towards a "career-ending debacle", warned Middle East expert it is a career-ending debacle and that is why probably someone phoned him and said 'Mr President, can we be a little bit smoother?' "We're still working on this".

"We stand ready to provide military options if they are appropriate as the President determined", he said.

When Trump says "smart" missiles, he means missiles that use precision guidance systems based on lasers or satellite-powered GPS to pinpoint and strike targets with exactitude.

When then-U.S. president Barack Obama almost attacked Syrian forces in September 2013 following a similar chemical assault, Al Assad and his forces were reeling.

US President Donald Trump has warned of imminent military action in Syria in response to the attack. Speaking on KMA's "Morning Line" program Wednesday morning, Young says the USA needs a "swift, measured, strong response" to Syria.

Zasypkin also said a clash between Russian Federation and the United States over Syria "should be ruled out and therefore we are ready to hold negotiations". Less than two weeks ago, Trump said he wanted to bring USA troops home from Syria.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Trump's spokeswoman dismissed this idea, and pointedly refused to acknowledge that concern about the risks of a direct confrontation with Russian Federation would hold the USA military back.

The WHO said it had reports that as many as 70 people may have died. There is no reason for this, he wrote, adding that "Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together".

The President previously criticised the Obama Administration for telegraphing its military moves in advance.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, asked about the ambassador's comment in his regular phone briefing with reporters on Wednesday, did not repeat the warning. "Nevertheless, we hope that common sense will prevail in the end and that worldwide relations will become more constructive - that the whole global system will become more stable and predictable". We tell everything. We're sending troops.

"They have threatened us a thousand times". We have a news conference.

Trump Doubles Down on Pruitt, for Now
Several new and expanded probes are underway into Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt's conduct. At least three congressional Republicans and a chorus of Democrats have called for Pruitt's ouster.

Cafarella said the United States must decide how far it wants to go in terms of hitting Iranian proxy forces near USA positions in eastern Syria, or even targeting Russian-supported facilities.

The Security Council failed on Tuesday to agree on setting up an investigation of chemical weapons use in Syria, with draft resolutions from Russian Federation and the United States defeated in three votes.

A day earlier, May had said Britain was still assessing who was responsible.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has called for a Cabinet meeting to decide the U.K.'s response in Syria following a suspected chemical weapons attack reportedly carried out by the Syrian government. The organization is not responsible for naming the perpetrators of any chemical attack, and previous inspectors have said their missions were hampered by government restrictions.

The French president does not need parliamentary permission to launch a military operation. France is already involved in the USA -led coalition created in 2014 to fight the ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Multiple IS terror attacks have targeted France, including one last month.

There is also no evidence to suggest Assad's government was being framed for the latest suspected attack, said the official, a reference to past accusations by the Syrian government that the rebels might themselves release gas so that Assad would be blamed and they would garner sympathy.

At the other end of the spectrum is a nightmare scenario that brings the USA and Russian Federation into direct confrontation and pulls in Iran and Israel - with Iran using the Shiite militia Hezbollah as a proxy to attack Israel with long-range rockets, with calamitous consequences for neighboring Lebanon, where Hezbollah is based. Trump responded then by launching Navy cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield. This is not the first such attack on civilians during the civil war. U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, have since reported around 10 suspected chemical attacks of varying scale and certainty.

It comes after Jeremy Corbyn demanded that Parliament be given a say before any military action is taken.

One way to ensure Assad can not use such weapons is to conduct strikes on his chemical infrastructure, including by targeting factories and weapons holding areas.

The emergence of the tweet comes just hours after he told Russian Federation - on Twitter - to "get ready" for American "smart" missiles heading to Syria.

For the more cynical observer, part of the equation may be that both Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could use a diversion from domestic legal troubles.

The visit that RIA Novosti and Tass reported on Wednesday comes amid growing expectation of USA retaliation against Syria for a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town.

In April 2017, when the Syrian government used chemical weapons against their own people, a considerably higher 51% supported "British involvement in military intervention by Western countries to stop the crisis in Syria", with 32% opposed.
