Broad attack on Syria would face risks, including escalation with Russian Federation

Russian Federation is expected to call an emergency session of UN Security Council to discuss the strikes on Syria at 11A.M. EST.

Prime Minister Theresa May prepared to convene a special Cabinet meeting to weigh whether Britain should join the United States and France in a possible military action.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that Trump's threats to attack are "reckless" and endanger global peace and security.

Syria's chief allies, Russian Federation and Iran, called the use of force by the United States, Britain and France a "military crime" and "act of aggression" with the potential to worsen a humanitarian crisis after years of civil war.

When President Barack Obama failed to authorize strikes against Syria in 2013 to enforce his "red line" on chemical weapons use, he also sent a message of permission, critics have said, even if that incident resulted in a disarmament deal.

The bill, which was drafted by leading lawmakers at the State Duma in response to the new round of U.S. sanctions announced last week, proposes a wide range of restrictions for U.S. businesses in Russian Federation and for cooperation with the U.S. Among them is a proposal to ban or restrict titanium exports that are crucial for U.S. aircraft maker Boeing. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" Gen. Igor Konashenkov, released statements by medics from Douma's hospital who said a group of people toting video cameras entered the hospital, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons and causing panic.

"It's clear that the goal of these unsubstantiated lies ... is to discredit the Syrian government and to justify the use of force by external actors".

A fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma, where the suspected attack took place on Saturday. But US intelligence agencies have not completed their assessment or reached a final conclusion, the officials said.

French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday that France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and that France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".

Russian currency and stock markets, preoccupied with the threat of US military action in Syria and the fallout from Washington's new sanctions, did not react to the draft legislation, which will be discussed in the lower house next week.

The U.N. chief told an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council Friday called by Russian Federation that the highly volatile situation risks "escalation, fragmentation and division as far as the eye can see with profound regional and global ramifications".

Syria's military has repositioned some air assets to avoid fallout from possible missile strikes, USA officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

The deputy added that Russia's retaliatory measures also provide for the suspension of cooperation with the United States in the nuclear, aircraft-making and rocket-propulsion sectors. He also suggested he was examining ways to prevent any strikes from triggering a broader conflict.

Moscow is estimated to have dozens of aircraft at its Hmeymim air base in Syria including fighters and bombers, as well as 10 to 15 warships and support vessels in the Mediterranean.

According to a statement by the French presidency, Macron called for dialogue between France and Russian Federation to "continue and intensify" to bring peace and stability to Syria. Nervous world stock markets showed signs of recovery after Trump's signal that military strikes might not be imminent.

The Associated Press, citing a Russian media outlet, quoted a top Russian official as likening Trump to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Britain's May won backing from her senior ministers to take unspecified action with the United States and France to deter further use of chemical weapons by Syria. A USA guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is in the Mediterranean.

If the United States opts for a broader attack, it may choose to conduct initial precision strikes to debilitate ground air defenses.
