Lawmaker calls possible US strike on Syria 'Trump's image story'

He soon cancelled his trip to South America to attend to matters in the Middle East and engaged in collaborative discussions with French President Emmanuel Macron and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May. The exchange follows the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain, and comes amid Moscow's stern warnings to the West against striking Syria.

Seven vehicles with Russian flags and military police markings stood near the crossing, as well as Syrian police and two full buses drove through towards an assembly point before the convoy would head north, a Reuters witness said.

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.

According to an official communiqué, the president also noted that 'with every triumph on the field by the Army of this country, the voices of some western countries are raised and their movements are intensified', in an effort to change the course of developments. Such weapons are prohibited by international law and Russia had guaranteed that its Syrian ally had destroyed its chemical stocks.

"If I wanted to fire Robert Mueller in December, as reported by the Failing New York Times, I would have fired him", Trump tweeted.

Mohamed Khairullah, the Syrian-born mayor of Prospect Park, was glad to hear Trump's announcement but said that hitting chemical weapons facilities did not go far enough. He criticized the U.S. and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for international inspectors to complete their visit to the area.

Shanawani said it would be better "if they sit down and agree with each other and talk about it".

Russia and Iran called the use of force by the United States and its allies a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

Now that Trump has promised to retaliate in a "big way", he must deliver. They said the fighters controlled took control of the area's agriculture and ran several prisons where people were held and tortured. Both Syria and Russia have said reports of the attack were fabricated by rebels and rescue workers in Douma and have accused the United States of seeking to use it as a pretext to attack the government.

The French president has consistently said he'd act, alone if necessary, if Assad crossed the "red line" of using chemical weapons again. Whether it be Hitler's Germany, or Mussolini's Italy, or Assad's Syria, one thing remains in common; Murderous tyrant leaders have care little for life.

Unless someone can inject some coherence into Trump's scattershot approach to Syria, a missile attack could do more harm than good.

The Syrian pound lost nearly 10 percent of its value on prospects of an American attack, going from about 430 Syrian pounds to the dollar last week to 469 Wednesday. However, this could not be further from what we need to do. But the scenes, which resembled the brutality of the extremist Islamic State group, showed how the powerful group was adopting the same abuses it had once revolted against.

The lawmaker finally predicted a "firm response" from Syria's allies to any military offensive under the pretext of gas attacks in the Arab country. Any US strike would probably involve the navy, given the risk to aircraft from Russian and Syrian air defences. Multiple IS terror attacks have targeted France, including one last month.

"In particular, there were signs of severe irritation of mucous membranes, respiratory failure and disruption to central nervous systems of those exposed", it said.
