Russia Says US Seeking "Confrontation" With Syria

UK France Germany slam Syria chemical attack

In April 2017, US President Donald Trump launched a cruise missile strike against a Syrian air base after a previous toxic attack United Nations investigators later pinned on Assad's regime.

The United Nations agency says it has assessed reports from on-scene partners who examined casualties and fatalities from what many believe was a chemical weapons attack from the Syrian government against its own citizens.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump said America's relationship with Russian Federation "is worse now than it has ever been". Meanwhile, US officials and lawmakers threatened to take unilateral action against Syrian President Bashar Assad and his government.

Western countries rushed to blame the incident on the Syrian government.

But Russia said its experts found no evidence of chemical weapons use.

Sanders said Trump has chose to stay in the United States to "oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world". This is in contrast to an incident one year ago in which USA intelligence agencies had video and other evidence of certain aspects of the actual attack, which involved the use of Sarin gas.

Trump spoke with other world leaders, and U.S. officials said the U.S., France and Britain were in extensive consultations about launching a military strike as early as the end of this week.

On Tuesday, it was announced that the USA is deploying USS Harry Truman aircraft carrier with aircraft and helicopters on board and a number of missile destroyers from its Norfolk base in U.S. state of Virginia on Wednesday to the Middle East. Pentagon stated that the deployment is planned.

Of the collision, he said: "I realised I had to back out, but he continued to come across and that didn't leave me any room. It is, however, his clash with Red Bull's Max Verstappen in the opening laps that has attracted most post-race attention.

The only commercial flights above Syria as of early on Wednesday were being flown by Syrian Air and Lebanon's Middle East Airlines, according to flight tracking website FlightRadar24.

Trump also tweeted about a variety of subjects starting with a New York Times story about Ukraine.

Trump also conflated United States tensions with Russia over special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, saying "much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation".

The President and his inner circle are reportedly considering a much larger strike on Syria than the one on April 7, 2017, where 59 cruise missiles briefly disabled an airbase suspected of playing a role in a chemical attack.

In a Facebook post, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova wondered if the chemical weapons watchdog investigating reports of the suspected chemical attack has been warned that USA missiles would destroy "all evidence" of the attack.

Calling the attack "atrocious", Trump said "nothing's off the table" during a meeting of his Cabinet secretaries on Monday. US Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN on Tuesday that Assad should be designated as a legitimate military target.

The US delegation said it had done "everything possible" to accommodate Russian views and that the abortive council session marked a "decisive moment". Moscow has cautioned the US not to launch a military attack.

The OPCW does not have a mandate to establish who is responsible for attacks, and the joint OPCW-UN task-force that once did was shut down by Russian Federation a year ago after it blamed the Syria regime.
