United States recklessness in Syria

17 April 2018

Meanwhile, media reports noted that the United Kingdom government has confirmed a "20-fold" increase in disinformation being spread by Kremlin-linked social media "bot" accounts since the United Kingdom, USA and France attacked Syria's chemical weapons infrastructure on Saturday.

But she will be questioned over why she did not seek parliamentary approval for the action, a decision that she and her ministers say was driven by the need to act quickly. Putin, in his condemnation Saturday of the airstrikes, called for an emergency U.N. Security Council session and described the assault as the latest in two decades of American-led interventions that, in the Kremlin's telling, have unwound the worldwide order.

Doctors at the hospital where suspected victims were treated told reporters on the tour that none of the patients that night had suffered chemical weapons injuries - they were asphyxiated by dust and smoke in a bombardment.

Russia's Nebenzia called it "a very sad day for the world, for the United Nations, for its Charter which was blatantly, blatantly violated, and for the Security Council which has shirked its responsibilities".

He called the alleged chemical attack in Douma a scripted play.

American and British officials said that the attacks disclosed on Monday affected a wide range of organizations including internet service providers, private businesses and critical infrastructure providers.

The U.S., France and Britain have been consulting about launching a military strike in Syria.

Although he didn't provide the evidence, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the Kremlin has "irrefutable data" that the attack in Douma, that killed at least 75 people, was staged.

Pacers get the jump on Cavaliers — Sunday's National Basketball Association roundup
While the Cavaliers will undoubtedly play better in Game 2, the fact remains that the Pacers have had their number this season. Stephenson, when asked about his contributions to the Pacers' emphatic 98-80 win, described his energy as "contagious".

"I hope no one would dare to launch such an adventure now", Lavrov said.

The Russian ambassador said his country is being "threatened" and warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences".

"We can not depend on the mood of someone on the other side of the ocean when he wakes up, on what a specific person takes into his head in the morning", Mr Dvorkovich said at a forum in Krasnoyarsk, according to the TASS news agency.

"We did not coordinate targets or any planning with the Russians", Dunford said later, speaking at a press briefing alongside Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said on Sunday the United States would announce new economic sanctions aimed at companies dealing with equipment related to Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", said Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia.

The Trump administration did not lay the blame only at the feet of Syria's leader.

USA allies have offered strong words of support for Washington but no clear military plans have yet emerged.

Rana slog-swept Rahul Tewatia for a six to get started, and his 35-ball 59 became the fulcrum around which the innings revolved. In the previous match, Robin Uthappa was replaced by Sunil Narayan as an opener, and Narayan was played at third on order.

NBC News reported Thursday the United States has urine and blood samples that tested positive for chemical weapons, including chlorine gas and another nerve agent.

Apart from Macron's phone conversation with Putin, NATO members Germany and the Netherlands have said they will not take part in any military action.

The Syrian government now has control of eastern Ghouta and the town of Douma where they are flying the Russian flag next to Syria.

The Russian ambassador to the USA railed against the US-led coalition campaign against suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities.

Last year, the U.S. launched a retaliatory strike against one said to have taken place in Khan Sheikhoun. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" it said.

Shortly after the announcement, the White House said Joyce would leave his post and return to the U.S. National Security Agency.

Global stock markets have had a whipsaw week, largely fuelled by Trump's tendency to change his mind over top policy issues. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marked a major victory for Assad.
