Trump attempts to cloud timing of potential Syria strike

Donald Trump GETTYUSA v Russia and Syria Donald Trump has threatened imminent military action

She was one of 30 Conservative MPs to reject possible United Kingdom military action against Syria to deter the use of chemical weapons, after a vote was called by the then-Prime Minister David Cameron.

"The position is a very risky one because of Russian involvement, also because we have an erratic president of the United States".

Russian Federation has threatened to respond firmly to any military action against the Syrian Government.

"And, I would simply say to the Prime Minister: be very careful, because you do not have a majority in Parliament".

Macron doesn't need parliamentary permission to launch an operation.

Mrs May is expected to ask her cabinet to approve a form of British participation in action led by France and the U.S., aimed at Syrian President Bashar al Assad's chemical weapons infrastructure.

British Prime Minister Theresa May also called the strikes "right and legal", saying the global community would not tolerate the continued use of chemical weapons.

Britain's Ministry of Defense refused to comment on reports that Royal Navy submarines armed with cruise missiles have been dispatched into range of Syria.

"We're still assessing the intelligence, ourselves and our allies", Mattis said.

Downing Street would not be drawn on claims that Mrs May was preparing to authorise United Kingdom forces to strike against Assad, first seeking a vote in Parliament. In a statement, Senator Bernie Sanders said Trump has no legal authority for broadening the war in Syria.

Kremlin-backed news agency Tass reported a Moscow official saying that Russian military police will be deployed to the city to maintain law and order.

"Japan can not make a judgment on whether Assad's government forces really used chemical weapons", a senior Foreign Ministry official said of the latest attack.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump held a meeting Thursday afternoon with his team to discuss the situation. When that might happen remains unclear.

Speaking to Sky News, the Chairman of the Defence Committee warned Prime Minister Theresa May over a potential United Kingdom air strike against the Assad regime in Syria.

President Donald Trump warned Russia Wednesday to "get ready" for a missile attack on its ally Syria.

"Get ready, Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart".

Trump has slammed Russian Federation for its partnership with "Gas Killing Animal" Assad, spurring concerns that a U.S. strike could lead to a conflagration with Russian Federation, which has major military facilities at Tartus and Khmeimim and works cheek-by-jowl with Syria forces that could be targeted.

Syrian opposition activists and rescuers said poison gas was used on the rebel-held town near the capital, an allegation strongly denied by the Assad government.

French forces have not directly targeted Syrian government sites before, but France has supported rebel forces since early in the fighting that began in 2011.

It came nearly exactly a year after a chemical attack in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people.
