United States says has proof of Syria chemical attack

16 April 2018

The allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were eager yesterday to lay blame for the crisis not with him but with Mr Trump.

Senior Russian figures, including the head of the military, have warned that U.S. missiles will be shot down and their launch sites targeted if Russian personnel come under threat.

As global chemical weapons experts travelled to Syria to investigate a suspected gas attack by government forces which killed dozens of people, French President Emmanuel Macron spoke to Russia's Vladimir Putin and expressed concern about a worsening situation.

British Prime Minister Theresa May won backing from her senior ministers on Thursday to take unspecified action with the U.S. and France to deter further use of chemical weapons by Syria.

" Russian Federation convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss aggressive actions of the US and its allies", President Vladimir Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin website.

While insisting that the military action was a direct outcome of the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, May also alluded to the use of a nerve agent in the English city of Salisbury.

Ohtani hits 3-run triple in Angels' win over Royals
According to FanGraphs, Ohtani had a 1.0 WAR (wins above replacement) last week (0.5 WAR as a pitcher and 0.5 WAR as a hitter). Well, to put it in perspective, only 10 Angels players built up a 1.0 WAR over the course of THE ENTIRE SEASON past year .

In the near term, the military strike appeared to ramp up a searing war of words between Washington and Moscow, which regarded the action as a attack on Russian Federation itself.

Russia's theories about last Saturday's suspected chemical attack are reminiscent of previous contradictions.

Moscow, he said, has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication".

There have been calls from opposition parties and some Conservative MPs for Parliament to have a vote beforehand. "It will just take more lives and spawn the war elsewhere".

Chemical weapons experts for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) arrived in Syria to investigate the suspected poison gas attack.

France said Thursday it has proof that Syrian government forces, which Russian Federation has pledged to protect, conducted the attack.

"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.

Mr Trump himself appeared on Thursday to cast doubt on at least the timing of any US-led military action, tweeting: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

In a televised statement Saturday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said UK forces had undertaken a "limited and targeted strike" and that there had been "no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime". An attack, the president said "could be very soon or not so soon at all!" "I can't go beyond that", Sanders told reporters.

United Kingdom leaders determined Russian Federation was most likely responsible for the attack.

In a televised address announcing the action, Trump said he had chose to take action because last weekend's action by Assad "was a significant attack against his own people", and "not the actions of a man, they are crimes of a monster instead". "Russia was supposed to guarantee Assad would not use chemical weapons, and Russian Federation did the opposite".
