United Kingdom orders subs towards Syria for possible missile strikes

Trump warns Russia to

The UN Security Council will meet behind closed doors Thursday to discuss the threat of military action against Syria after President Donald Trump warned that "missiles will be coming". Under a 2013 agreement for which Russian Federation was a guarantor, Syria was to have eliminated all its chemical weapons, but it has used chlorine and perhaps other chemicals since then. 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!"

A spokesman for the Russian government, Dmitry Peskof, said USA missiles should target "terrorists" and not the "legitimate government" in Syria.

According to the rescuers, some 40 people were killed in a chemical attack that the West has blamed on the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, prompting strong denials from Moscow. At a photo-taking session during a meeting with his Dutch counterpart, Mattis was asked by a reporter whether he had seen enough evidence to blame the Syrian government. As I say, we've been working with them to get a better understanding of what happened on the ground.

A USA official said evidence collected so far by Western governments bears the same hallmarks as previous chemical attacks by Assad's government, including the position of the bodies and the lack of outwardly visible wounds that would result from a conventional attack. Indeed, the Assad regime would not have carried out the attack in Douma if it didn't think it could handle another barrage of cruise missiles.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Vice President Mike Pence chaired the meeting Wednesday afternoon.

The United States would not want to risk putting manned aircraft over Syrian air defenses - a shoot-down would send the conflict spiralling in unforeseeable new directions. The destroyers were underway in the Mediterranean Sea when the missiles were launched from hundreds of miles away.

"We are not surprised by this reckless escalation from a regime like the one in the United States, which has and continues to sponsor terrorism in Syria", the ministry said, adding that statements from Washington lack "wisdom and logic" and endanger worldwide peace and security.

"We have become accustomed to such threats that aim to frighten the Syrian people", said Marwan Ghata, 66, an engineer. A British government statement said the two agreed the attack in Syria was "utterly reprehensible" and the global community must respond "to uphold the worldwide prohibition on the use of chemical weapons".

After he warned Russian Federation what it would be up against in Syria, Trump lamented that relations between the two countries were worse than during the Cold War, a decades-long geopolitical and ideological rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union when both were armed for, and prepared for, nuclear war.

The attack in Douma happened late on Saturday amid a resumed offensive by Syrian government forces after the collapse of a truce with the Army of Islam rebel group.

These two ships, possibly aided by a United States submarine, are likely to play a role in a strike. A World Health Organization spokesman said, however, the agency can not say the deadly incident was a chemical attack because it can not get into the area. Worldwide inspectors are seeking clearance from Damascus to visit Douma under safe conditions to determine whether globally banned munitions were used, though they will not assign blame.

The US did provide Russian Federation with advance warning via military channels shortly prior to the April 2017 missile strike on the Syrian air base believed responsible for a previous chemical weapons attack.

French President Emmanuel Macron said his nation, the US and Britain will decide how to respond.

Trump is believed to be considering standoff missile strikes against facilities related to the production and delivery of chlorine and sarin or sarin-like agents.

Trump a year ago ordered a strike against Assad following a deadly sarin gas attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun. The administration said that Trump would "oversee the American response to Syria".

The European Aviation Safety Agency alerted airlines on Tuesday of the possible launch of "air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours", urging them to take precautionary measures.
