Trump Clears Up Syria Missile Threat: 'Soon Or Not So Soon'

President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting

Dozens of Douma inhabitants died and hundreds were injured in the attack, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Iran says its forces are in Syria in an advisory role.

Assad's Barzah research and development centre in Damascus was destroyed, McKenzie said. Later he attempted to clarify his threat, saying that he had never specified when the US would conduct an attack on Syria.

That evidence includes victim statements, images of barrel bomb fragments and reliable reports of Syrian government helicopters in the area.

An intelligence source told the Mirror: "The 2017 retaliatory strikes against Assad's chemical weapons sites had little effect".

But given Trump's pledge to withdraw from Syria, it's unlikely that Assad's latest use of chemical weapons will be his last.

A similar assessment regarding Syria's actions was delivered by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, which said pro-Syrian government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases.

The "America First" principle to which Trump turned so often during the campaign promises to put the interests of America and Americans before all else.

"The regime will use this as a chance to continue sectarian policies against Sunni civilians", she said in a phone interview.

As anti-war protesters waved placards outside, Mrs May detailed how Britain's strategic objective for military action was to prevent the "normalisation" of chemical weapons use.

Mattis warned the president privately about the dangers, with U.S. and Russian forces so close in Syria and the Mediterranean.

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

Trump is believed to be considering standoff missile strikes against facilities related to the production and delivery of chlorine and sarin or sarin-like agents.

The attack at the weekend led to widespread condemnation, as Theresa May agreed with Trump and French president Emmanuel Macron that the international community "needed to respond" following the suspected attack.

Russia has the Hmeimim air base in the coastal Latakia province and a naval base in the port of Tartus.

And Tory MP Zac Goldsmith warned: "We need a clear response to the Syrian chemical outrage".

But rival politicians and some Conservative colleagues have called for a parliamentary vote before any British involvement.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the attack "necessary and appropriate".

"Part of the question that is sort of hanging out there is what would really be the underlying goal of a strike other than to simply be shown to be responding?"

"I was taken blindfolded and held in solitary confinement in a cell where I hardly fit", he said, adding that there was a hole in the tiny room to be used as a toilet.

Its forces have long battlefield experience from fighting wars against Israel. It has also repositioned bomber warplanes from its Pacific island of Guam.

The US also has B-2 bombers at its disposal. "He said earlier this week, we'll tell you what we do after the fact".

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", Trump wrote. They said the fighters controlled took control of the area's agriculture and ran several prisons where people were held and tortured.

Syria's seven-year civil war has killed more than half a million people and displaced many millions more.

"This is going to set the Syrian chemical weapons program back for years", McKenzie said.

How Trump tries to square the circle remains to be seen.

Yet the most reliable evidence we have from Syria suggests neither argument is fully accurate.

"As other nations step up their contributions, we look forward to the day when we can bring our warriors home", Trump said.
