Trump still mulling military options in Syria as tensions with Russian Federation rise

"This is grotesque, it is a blatant lie, it is the worst piece of fake news we've yet seen from the Russian propaganda machine", said Britain's United Nations ambassador Karen Pierce.

SIMON: Charles, remind us, again, what is the Russian interest in Syria?

Advice circulated by USA and United Kingdom authorities warned Cisco routers - a common commercial brand - were affected. She added she didn't want to think about the possibility of Russian or American blood being spilled, arguing that Washington and Moscow could resolve their differences over Syria with better communications.

"So, in theory, all of us agree on the core principle at stake today: no country can be allowed to use chemical weapons with impunity", Haley said.

The bill, which follows the latest round of USA sanctions on Russian Federation, was drafted on Friday jointly by State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin and the heads of all four parliamentary caucuses. As he spoke, explosions rocked Damascus.

"So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime", May said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said in London that the West had tried "every possible" diplomatic means to stop Assad from using chemical weapons.

On a cost-benefit analysis, the Kremlin has more to lose from any escalation or prolonging of the seven-year-old, multi-sided Syria conflict, now that their longtime ally Assad, thanks to Russian and Iranian military assistance, has swung the battlefield decidedly in his favor and all but won.

The attack on Syria was ordered by US President Donald Trump "on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities".

Russia's military says Britain was behind the alleged April 7 chemical attack that killed dozens of Syrians in a rebel-held suburb of Damascus.

"At least, we are giving an adequate reply to the United States of America".

That had led to feverish speculation on Russian television, and from some Russian politicians, that a US strike on Syria could quickly devolve into a nuclear standoff as unsafe as the Cuban missile crisis. On the one hand, it is likely that the Syrian government would be more able to mobilize domestic public opinion in its own favor by depicting the situation as a direct foreign plot against the Syrian sovereignty. Russian officials denied any involvement during the most violent days of the fighting between the Ukrainian military and Russian-backed forces in eastern Ukraine in 2014, while journalists and Western intelligence agencies reported tanks pouring across the Russian border into the Ukraine.

Another senior official said Trump and his aides had largely settled on a consensus view on what strategy to take and that work continued on the timing and coordination with allies who plan to participate.

Here's who Russian Federation has blamed this week for the alleged chemical attack that killed dozens, including many children.

The one-off missile strike in April 2017 targeted the airfield from which the Syrian aircraft had launched their gas attack.

Konashenkov released statements he said came from medics at Douma's hospital, saying a group of people toting video cameras entered the hospital, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons, dousing them with water and causing panic. He said the USA administration under Trump's command is conflicted and taking "bizarre" decisions without a strategic vision.
