Missiles coming to Syria

  • Missiles coming to Syria

Earlier Thursday, Trump appeared to soften his rhetoric about imminent airstrikes on Syria, a day after warning Russian Federation that missiles "will be coming, nice and new and 'smart.'" In an early morning tweet and later in comments at the White House, Trump worked to cloud the timing of military action and said a final decision had not yet been made.

Half a world away in New York, Russia's United Nations ambassador warned the priority in Syria was to avert US-led strikes that could lead to a risky confrontation between the world's two preeminent nuclear powers.

Trump warned Russian Federation that "nice and new" missiles would be heading to Syria and Moscow should "get ready".

While denouncing Mr Assad, Mr Trump, Mr Macron and others have made it clear that their main goal is making sure Islamic State never recovers from its battlefield reverses.

Syrian government forces have taken full control over the town of Douma, the last rebel stronghold in Eastern Ghouta, according to Russian military officials.

If confirmed, the town's seizure would mark the last stage of Assad's takeover of the rebel-held enclave of eastern Ghouta.

Moscow and Washington blocked attempts by each other at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday to set up global investigations into chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Trump has been weighing US military options in Syria in the wake of Saturday's chemical attack that killed at least 40 people. This is in contrast to an incident one year ago in which the USA government had video and other evidence of certain aspects of an actual attack by Syrian aircraft, which involved the use of sarin gas.

UN Security Council to Meet Friday on Syria Crisis - Russian Mission
Russia vetoed a US text, while two Russian-drafted resolutions failed to get the minimum nine votes required for approval. The United States, France and Britain defended their military action as legal during the Security Council meeting.


Trump's announcement put the media into anticipation overdrive as some kind of action seemed imminent, but so far the only shots fired have been on Twitter.

Trump said anyone responsible for the attack, including Russian Federation, will "pay a price", and has cancelled a planned trip to Latin America to oversee the US response.

Meanwhile, in the UK Theresa May has summoned a cabinet meeting to discuss possible UK military action in Syria as part of a coalition with the United States and France in response to the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma.

At stake in Syria 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 World Health Organization said about 500 patients showed signs of exposure to toxic chemicals following the Douma attack.

Should the President follow through on his warnings of an attack, two US Navy destroyers armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles are in position and ready to be called into action, among other assets, including jets and submarines. While UK Prime Minister Mrs May isn't required to seek parliamentary approval, it's accepted that lawmakers will have a say before committing military forces.

The alleged attack was launched not long after Trump called for withdrawal of U.S. troops from war-ravaged Syria.
