How the West might strike Syria

How the West might strike Syria

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

President Donald Trump says the USA has many military options as it decides how to respond to an apparent poison gas attack in central Syria that killed more than 40 people.

Tim Clark, president of Dubai-based Emirates airline, said at a press conference in Hamburg that the carrier is studying how to reroute planes away from areas near Syria.

With renewed U.S. military action seemingly imminent - and as Trump threatened that the U.S. missiles would be "nice and new and 'smart!'" - both Washington and Moscow raised the rhetorical stakes. Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Facebook that "smart" missiles would destroy any evidence of a chemical weapons attack.

British PM says will speak with Donald Trump regarding Syria chemical attack

May has not confirmed whether Britain will participate directly, but moved closer to it Wednesday, saying "the continued use of chemical weapons can not go unchallenged". "Or does the whole idea consist in quickly covering the traces of the provocation with strikes from smart rockets and global inspectors will already have nothing to look for in terms of evidence?"

"Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation", tweeted Trump, who has been accused of being overly indulgent to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

A report from the BBC published on Wednesday asserts that Theresa May is is planning to join the USA in its response without a vote in Parliament, according to a new report from the BBC.

In another tweet, Trump said relations with Russian Federation were worse than in the cold war. Then, striking a more conciliatory tone, he said: "There is no reason for this".

At stake is the potential for confrontation, if not outright conflict, between the US and Russian Federation, former Cold War foes whose relations have deteriorated in recent years over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine, its interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and, most recently, its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad. The tweet was followed by another one, urging Moscow to stop what he described as an "arms race".

More than 350,000 people have been killed in Syria's conflict since it started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests. ISIS, which grew out of Al Qaeda in Iraq, took root in northern and eastern Syria in 2013 after seizing swaths of territory in neighboring Iraq.

The United States was actively collecting evidence on how Syria and Russian Federation were responding to US threats, officials said, adding that Washington believed Syria and its allies were nearly certainly also moving personnel and military equipment - beyond just aircraft - into protective locations. It has sparked the largest humanitarian and refugee crisis since World War II, according to the United Nations.

But the Russian army continued to deny their side's latest victory came after Assad launched a chemical attack on the last rebel-held pocket of the enclave, instead accusing the White Helmets civil defense organization of staging the massacre.
