Defiant Trump warns missiles 'will be coming' over Syria attack

Defiant Trump warns missiles 'will be coming' over Syria attack”

Moscow, which has troops on the ground in Syria, has already warned that U.S. military action would be "very, very dangerous". A British government statement said the two agreed the attack in Syria was "utterly reprehensible" and that the global community must respond "to uphold the worldwide prohibition on the use of chemical weapons". An alleged risky gas attack was reported in rebel-held Douma.

"Due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria with air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours, and the possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment, due consideration needs to be taken when planning flight operations in the Eastern Mediterranean/Nicosia FIR area", it said, referring to the designated airspace.

The US President tweeted: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Trump also conflated USA tensions with Russia over special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, saying "much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation". "It is a travesty".

For the U.S. and France, failure to meaningfully intervene in the conflict would expose them as powerless in the face of Russian aggression, and unable to abate the suffering in Syria even with strong political will.

The airspace over Syria is empty and likely will be until at least midday Friday, as the US and its allies contemplate missile strikes in the war-torn country.

Russia's United Nations ambassador Vassily Nebenzia accused Haley of seeking a vote to provide cover for a Western military strike on Assad that now seems all the more likely.

The threats of USA military action against Syria "should make us seriously anxious, all of us", Nebenzia said.

However, on the other hand, U.S. Air Forces Central Command Lt. Col. Damien Pickart reportedly told Russia's TASS news agency on Wednesday the two sides are still using special military channels to prevent military incidents in Syrian air space and on the ground.

President Donald Trump's early morning tweets on Wednesday have created even more confusion around his strategy in Syria as well as policy on Russian Federation. On Tuesday she chaired a meeting of the National Security Council, and spoke with U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron. After the alleged chemical attack, the regime said a deal had been reached for Jaish al-Islam fighters to leave the bombed-out town.

"According to our information, two expert groups from the OPCW mission should go to Syria at the end of this week", Nebenzia said.

An on-scene investigation will "shortly" be conducted by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which promised on Tuesday to send a team to Douma to obtain first-hand evidence.

But this move could limit the damages that a joint airstrike conducted by the U.S. and its allies would have on the Syrian army, should the Western countries decide to turn words into actions.

A source from a pro-regime unit told AFP Tuesday there were "precautionary measures being taken by the Syrian army, especially the airports and military bases".

"I have lived through seven American presidents, but Trump is the craziest and his administration is unbalanced", said Abu Fadi, a retired resident".

"I think we have to respond militarily", Crocker said on Morning Edition.

The US has threatened a "forceful" response to the reported attack but Russian Federation has called it a pretext to attack its ally, Syria.

Douma has been heavily bombed by Syria and Russian Federation making it extremely hard for media, including AFP, to independently verify the claims.

Nebenzia and Syrian Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari said that despite the council's failure to welcome the OPCW fact-finding mission, its investigators are heading to Syria with support from both Russian Federation and Syria.

But the OPCW will not seek to establish who was responsible for the attack.

Assad's government and Russian Federation have said there was no evidence a gas attack had taken place and that the claim was bogus.
