Trump taunts Russia, threatens missiles 'will be coming' over Syria”

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday the U.S. has an obligation to lead an international response to the attack, and that Trump has the authority to use military force.

The tweet came after Alexander Zasypkin, the Russian envoy to Beirut, said: "If there is an American strike, then we. will shoot down the missiles and target the positions from where they were launched".

In what The Daily Telegraph calls an "extraordinary response", the US president branded Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it".

She was one of 30 Conservative MPs to reject possible UK military action against Syria to deter the use of chemical weapons, after a vote was called by the then-Prime Minister David Cameron. "We are meeting our military. and we'll be making some major decisions over the next 24 to 48 hours", Trump said. Syrian opposition activists and rescuers said more than 40 people were killed.

Pushkov added that the US cannot reverse or change the conflict in Syria without sending several tens of thousands of its soldiers there. For one, Trump said the missiles headed toward Syria include some that are "smart".

Sanders says, "The president holds Syria and Russia responsible for this chemical weapons attack".

The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, quickly labeled Assad a "monster" following reports of the alleged attack in Douma.

"Some form of military action will probably be needed in Syria but when it comes to dealing with the Russian bear itself, we should be cautious", the paper said. While part of a regularly scheduled deployment, the Truman will deploy to the Mediterranean with a complement of strike and reconnaissance aircraft and surface warships sailing alongside. There was no immediate confirmation from the Damascus regime.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said any US missile strike could be an attempt to destroy evidence of the reported gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma, for which Damascus and Moscow have denied any responsibility. The White House said it was continuing to assess intelligence and talk to its allies on how to respond.

The British leader's office said Cabinet ministers "agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime".

The U.S. and its allies have threatened to take military action in response to an alleged chemical attack last weekend.

President Donald Trump continued to weigh his options Thursday for responding to a chemical gas attack in Syria as his aides warned a miscalculated response could spark a dramatic escalation between the United States, Russia and Iran.
