Trump vows 'forceful' response after Syria attack

10 Апреля 2018

"We are making a decision as to what we do with respect to the awful attack that was made near Damascus, and it will be met forcefully, and when I'm not saying because I don't like to talk about timing".

According to CBN News National Security Correspondent Erik Rosales, just hours before the United Nations meeting, Secretary of Defense James Mattis released a statement saying the U.S.is not ruling anything out. "It was disgusting", Mr Trump said, adding that "nothing was off the table" in regards to the upcoming U.S. response.

"If it's Russian Federation, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all them together, we'll figure it out and we'll know the answers quite soon", Trump said. "Everybody is going to pay a price".

During a meeting at the White House, President Donald Trump said of the attack, "We are studying that situation extremely closely".

Nick Heras, an analyst at the Centre for a New American Security, said Israel appeared to have seized on a moment of global outrage over Douma to strike Syria.

The White House deliberations came as Russian Federation and the Syrian military blamed Israel for a pre-dawn missile attack on a major air base in central Syria, saying Israeli fighter jets launched missiles from Lebanon's air space.

"Russia is being unpardonably threatened", Nebenzia said. "The tone with which this is being done has gone beyond the threshold of what is acceptable, even during the Cold War".

Trump also spoke over phone with French President Emmanuel Macron to continue their coordination on responding to Syria's apparent use of chemical weapons on the attack, the White House said. But if Putin indeed wanted to deal with Trump, why abort all such prospects with a poison gas murder of a has-been KGB agent in Britain, America's foremost ally? "Bashar Assad and his Russian and Iranian backers have heard him, and emboldened by American inaction, Assad has reportedly launched another chemical attack against innocent men, women and children, this time in Douma", McCain said in a statement on Sunday.

Officials in Washington were seeking to verify early reports by rescuers and others that the Assad government was culpable.

At the public meeting, Haley said, "The world must see justice done", adding that the United States would respond to the chemical weapons attack in Syria regardless of whether the Security Council acted or not. The resolution, adopted in 2013, provided for the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles. In closed-door discussions that followed, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said she planned to put the draft resolution to a vote on Tuesday, said diplomats, who requested anonymity.

The strike was carefully limited - 59 U.S. Tomahawk cruise missiles that damaged about 20 Syrian aircraft or 20% of its operational warplanes.

It seems very likely that the Trump administration will take some sort of military action against Syria, but just what and when remains unclear.

USA envoy to the UN Nikki Haley on Monday told the UN Security Council that "the Russian regime, whose hands are all covered in the blood of Syrian children, can not be ashamed by pictures of its victims", referring to Sunday's chemical attack on the town of Douma near Damascus, where regime forces killed an estimated 200 and injured more than 1,000, including many children.

Israel, which has struck Syrian army locations many times in the course of its neighbour's civil war, has neither confirmed nor denied mounting the raid.

Sanders is reiterating that Russian Federation and Iran "also bear responsibility for these acts". Big price to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and verification.
