Trump is analyzing situation over Syria

Trump is analyzing situation over Syria

Earlier Thursday, Trump appeared to walk back earlier comments in which he warned Russian Federation to brace for missiles which he said "will be coming".

"We don't want a war, but we don't fear it and we're ready for it", Shaaban said. "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

Trump's administration has sought to show toughness on Russian Federation, with a series of economic and diplomatic actions, including new sanctions last week against government officials and oligarchs.

However, US Defence Secretary James Mattis struck a more cautious tone later on Wednesday, saying that Washington was still assessing intelligence on the suspected toxic gas attack.

The Syrian government and Russian Federation, which backs it, strongly oppose the claims, which they say are fabricated.

The Pentagon refused to comment further on potential future military operations in response to Trump's tweet. But he tweeted Thursday that it may come "very soon or not so soon at all!"

"Six in ten Brits (61%) say that it should be necessary for Parliament to vote first on whether the United Kingdom takes part in military action in Syria - 18% say it should not be necessary for Parliament to vote on the matter", the pollster wrote on Twitter on the results of its survey. She also said that no country should use chemical weapons and go unpunished.

"If there is a strike by the Americans, then. the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired", Zasypkin told Hezbollah's al-Manar TV.

Poirier finishes Gaethje in another Fight of the Night performance
Poirier ate, much like the Eddie Alvarez fight, tons of kicks. "Twenty 20 in the UFC , up and down weight classes", Poirier said. As Gaethje stumbled around the cage, Poirier swarmed in to tag him with combinations before finishing him along the cage wall.

Trump administration officials told The Associated Press in February they believed forces loyal to Assad might have been in the process of working on new or more refined chemical weapons.

The Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations Francois Delattre said that the Assad regime is using chemical weapons to attack its opponents in a pre-determined way.

In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May held an emergency cabinet meeting to discuss support for USA action against the Syrian regime.

Downing Street said the Prime Minister spoke to the United States and French presidents on Tuesday, and said they had agreed to "continue working closely together" to ensure those responsible were "held to account".

Chancellor Angela Merkel said after speaking with Macron on Thursday that Germany won't participate in possible military action in Syria, but supports sending a message that the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable. He continued by saying that global law has been systematically violated in Syria and that he feels angry at reports of chemical weapons use in the country.

"That's a case that I've made going back many, many years in Parliament", he added.

The White Helmets, a Syrian civil defense agency, blamed the Assad regime for the Saturday night chemical attack in the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.
