Trump is analyzing situation over Syria

Russian Federation has warned the West against attacking its Syrian ally President Bashar al-Assad, who is also supported by Iran, and says there is no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma, a town near Damascus which had been rebel-held until this month. British officials said up to 75 people were killed.

Britain's government weighed the possibility of military action against Syria on Thursday, agreeing the "need to take action" despite polls showing the public remains wary of military intervention.

The White House and National Security Council did not immediately respond to Anadolu Agency's requests for comment on the report.

Mattis' remarks at a House Armed Services Committee hearing followed a series of Trump tweets this week that initially indicated he was committed to bombing Syria but later suggested he was awaiting further advice and assessment.

Half a world away in New York, Russia's United Nations ambassador warned the priority in Syria was to avert US-led strikes that could lead to a risky confrontation between the world's two preeminent nuclear powers.

Conservative former London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith, tweeted: "We need a clear response to the Syrian chemical outrage". A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S.in the lead, could send a message of global unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons.

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.

France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and has crossed a line that could prompt French airstrikes, President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday. Trump said Thursday on Twitter.

"Japan can not make a judgment on whether Assad's government forces really used chemical weapons", a senior Foreign Ministry official said of the latest attack.

According to the sources, the specific response being considered in the event of US military action against Syria is Japan's "support for the USA resolve to fulfill its responsibility to prevent the use of chemical weapons".

Syria warned that it will have "no other choice" but to defend itself if the West launches military action. "We are not seeking escalation".

The drumbeat of military action appeared to grow louder, as Russian Federation stonewalled diplomatic efforts at the United Nations and France declared "proof" that Moscow's Syrian ally carried out a deadly chemical weapons attack that killed more than 40 Syrians. "Not to react is to prove to the rest of the world that what we say does not matter".

Assad's main ally Russian Federation has repeatedly issued warnings to the United States that it will shoot back at missiles, warships and jets if they strike against Syria, bringing the USA and Russian Federation into direct conflict for the first time. Russia's ambassador to Lebanon said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted - a stark warning of a potential major confrontation.
