Alleged chemical attack brutal end to rebellious Syria town

U.S. troops were sent to Russia in the late 1910s to fight the Red Army and Vladimir Lenin's government

Top military officials, including Defense Secretary James Mattis, warned Trump during an afternoon meeting Thursday that he risks escalating United States involvement in Syria if he goes forward with the type of aggressive bombing campaign he has pushed over the past week, according to U.S. and Western officials briefed on the conversation.

Later, speaking at the meeting, called by Russian Federation to discuss the prospect of an American strike on Syria, Haley said, "This meeting should not be about so-called 'unilateral threats, ' it should be about the multiple actions Russian Federation has taken to bring us to this point".

But a wider attack will face multiple immediate and longer-term risks, including the possibility of a unsafe escalation with Russia, Assad's main military backer, in a country that Moscow has used as a testing ground for some of its most sophisticated weaponry.

The United States would still welcome possible cooperation with Russia on Syria but wants Moscow to condemn alleged chemical attacks committed by Damascus, US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman said.

Trump suggested Monday he had little doubt that Syria was to blame, but neither he nor other administration officials have produced hard evidence.

Watchdog Confirms Skripals Poisoned, UK Says Kremlin Must Give Answers
The confirmation of the chemical's identity bolsters Britain's case that Russian Federation was behind the attack last month. They also called on United Kingdom officials to "urgently provide evidence" that Skripal was not deprived of her freedom.

"We plan to discuss the draft law at the State Duma Council with the participation of representatives of all factions, to send it to our colleagues in Russian regions, to work with experts and the Russian government once again, and then we will consider it at the next Duma meeting", Volodin said.

According to a Russian news outlet, the officials also blamed U.S. Special Forces, al Qaeda members and Free Syiran Army members as co-conspirators of the attack that would happen. "I hope no one would dare to launch such an adventure now", Lavrov said. We are totally predictable.

Syria's attempt to shelter aircraft, perhaps by locating them alongside Russian military hardware that Washington might be reluctant to hit, could limit damage that the United States and its allies might be able to inflict on Assad's military.

At the House hearing, Democrats grilled Mattis on the wisdom and legality of Trump ordering an attack on Syria without explicit authorization from Congress. Mattis argued it would be justified as an act of self-defense, with 2,000 US ground troops in Syria; he insisted he could not talk about military plans because an attack "is not yet in the offing".

"Fundamentally the U.S.is going to have to prove does it have a goal in Syria", and that it has an endgame in mind, Taleblu added.

Shortly after his tweeted warning to Russia, Trump took a more conciliatory tone in lamenting that the U.S. -Russia relationship "is worse now than it has ever been".

Trump met his national security team on the situation in Syria later in the day and "no final decision has been made", the White House said in a statement.

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.

"Those three countries - the US, Britain and France - if they think they can attack us and attack our sovereignty, at the time, we would have no other choice except applying Article 51 of the charter that gives us the right to defend ourselves, the legitimate right to defend ourselves", Jaafari said. Trump has largely avoided criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, though he singled him out in a tweet over the weekend for supporting Assad.

French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday that France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and that France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted". A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S.in the lead, could send a message of global unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons. The ministry additionally pointed to previous alleged use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops.

The U.S. also concluded that Russian Federation had advance knowledge of the attack based on the information that a drone was flying over a hospital where the victims of the 2017 attack were being taken to get treatment. Multiple IS terror attacks have targeted France, including one last month.
