Trump says 'major' Syria decision coming in '24-48 hours'

Not Released

Syrian government forces were on high alert and taking precautionary measures Tuesday at military positions across the country amid fears of a USA strike in the aftermath of an apparent chemical weapons attack near Damascus.

But Hurd said if differences over Syria lead to a direct military battle between Russia and the United States, Russia would not fare well.

"The AUMF we're operating under now passed the week after September 11", said Sen.

"The president has noted that Russian Federation and Iran also bear responsibility for these acts, since they would not be possible without their material support.It is also now clear that Russian Federation has betrayed its obligations to guarantee the end of the Syrian regimes chemical weapons program", she said. "It was disgusting", Trump said at the start of a Cabinet meeting where possible military action was discussed. "He will. Everybody will".

Other leaders, including U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, said that Russian Federation and Syria should be held accountable for their actions if found to be responsible.

"We're looking at that very strongly, very seriously", he said.

Local aid groups blamed the attack on the Syrian government. "But to me, there's not much of a doubt, but the generals will figure it out probably over the next 24 hours". "Their job is to keep these wars going in the Middle East, for lots of reasons; first of all, in the interest of Israel, that's why he mentioned Iran, because Israel does not want any Iranian influence whatsoever in that area, but also in the interest of the military-industrial complex", he said. "Nothing is off the table", Trump said.

Moscow and Damascus have fiercely denied that chemical weapons were used in Syria. But that strike didn't stop Assad from expanding control over the country - largely because most of the regime's military might comes from Russian Federation and Iran. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world.

And any new action raise the risk of open conflict with Russian Federation which, like Iran, has deployed forces to defend Assad s regime. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever.

European leaders have also thrown support behind Mr Trump's vow for a swift response, with French President Emmanuel Macron agreeing over a phone call with the US President to exchange information on the nature of the attack and to coordinate a strong, joint response. "Animal Assad would have been history!"

"The monster who was responsible for these attacks has no conscience to be shocked by pictures of dead children".

But here's the thing - activists on the ground have reported multiple chemical weapon attacks since those strikes a year ago, including at least three suspected chlorine attacks around where this most recent attack took place in Douma.

Reports suggested more than 500 people, mostly women and children, were brought to medical centres with difficulty breathing, foaming at the mouth, and burning sensations in the eyes. "Patients have shown signs of respiratory distress, central cyanosis, excessive oral foaming, corneal burns, and the emission of chlorine-like odor".

The meeting was called to bring attention to local, national and worldwide groups already engaged in armed confrontations or at risk of escalating confrontations, said Staffan de Mistura, the UN Special Envoy to Syria.

The council met publicly on Monday over the latest suspected chemical weapons attack.

Earlier, the United Nations human rights chief said world powers were treating chemical weapons use with a "collective shrug". So the US must keep all options open. The Kremlin, for one, rejects the very notion that there was a chemical attack on Douma.
