Calls mounting for Trump to target Assad in missile strike against Syria

UK France Germany slam Syria chemical attack

Trump has pressed his foreign counterparts and his aides to develop options that go further than strikes he ordered previous year on a Syrian airfield in response to another chemical weapons attack. Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the U.S. decision to put forward its resolution could be a prelude to a Western strike on Syria.

Online political observers are flipping out again after President Trump threatened Russian Federation to stand aside while he hits Syria with an airstrike.

Russian lawmakers have warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime and that it could trigger a direct U.S-Russian military clash. 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.

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, on Hezbollah's al-Manar TV on Tuesday evening, warned that a us strike on Syria would prompt a major escalation of the war in that country. Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart!", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Forty minutes after his first post, the USA president tweeted: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".

Recommended: The World's Most Secretive Nuclear Weapons Program. There is no reason for this, he wrote, adding that "Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together".

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

Russian Federation immediately responded to Trump's threat on Wednesday.

Cameroon athletes go missing from Commonwealth Games
Grevemberg warned, however, that they would take the matter "very seriously" if they were found to have broken the regulations. It is not the first time athletes have disappeared during major sporting events.

In response, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page, "Smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not the legitimate government which has been fighting against global terrorism in its territory for several years", according to a translation by state-run Tass media.

United States officials said last month pro-Syrian government forces including Russian mercenaries massed near U.S. and US-backed forces in the same region, but a potential confrontation was defused after the USA military contacted Russian officers.

In addition to the Tomahawk, one weapon that likely would be launched from outside Syrian airspace by the B-1B bomber is the Jassm cruise missile.

The US and Russian militaries have sought to avoid conflict in Syria, notably past year in the Euphrates River Valley where they supported rival sides in the campaign against Islamic State militants.

The White House said Mrs May and Mr Trump both condemned Mr Assad's "vicious disregard for human life" and agreed the use of chemical weapons should not continue.

"We are looking for a coordinated response, whatever that response might be", State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said Tuesday.

The Hague-based Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said Assad's government had been asked to make necessary arrangements for an OPCW investigation team to visit shortly.

Moscow's threat to shoot down US missiles came from the Russian ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, who said he was referring to a statement by President Vladimir Putin and the Russian armed forces chief of staff. It was not immediately clear whether that visit might affect any USA or allied military action.
