'Get ready Russia': US President Trump signals missile strike in Syria

The Latest: Russian lawmaker warns against Syria strike

Russian Federation and the United States tangled on Tuesday at the United Nations over the use of chemical weapons in Syria as Washington and its allies considered whether to strike at President Bashar al-Assad's forces over a suspected poison gas attack last weekend.

President Donald Trump's warning on Wednesday morning that USA missiles "will be coming" to Syria was notable not only for its military and geopolitical implications, but because he tipped off U.S. plans in exactly the same manner for which he's criticized his predecessor.

President Donald Trump threatened both Syria and Russian Federation with missiles in an early Wednesday morning tweet.

"Get ready, Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart". Trump wrote in a post on Twitter Wednesday.

Another top Russian official warned Trump of "serious consequences'" if any Russians are wounded or killed in any possible airstrike on the war-torn nation.

It remains hard to place an exact figure on the number of people killed and wounded in Saturday's alleged attack on the outskirts of Damascus, which has pushed the USA and its allies to the verge of military confrontation in Syria. Gadi Eisenkot - plan to be in Poland participating in the March of the Living, the annual Holocaust commemoration event at Auschwitz. "Big price to pay".

The White House said Trump canceled a trip to Latin America, which had been set to begin Friday, so that he could "oversee the American response to Syria".

"Our recommendation to Iran is that it does not try to act, because Israel is determined to pursue this issue to the very end", the officials said.

The Russian military said on Wednesday it was closely watching the situation around Syria and was aware of the movements of a USA naval strike force headed for the Gulf.

Trump did not detail what a strike would look like, or whether these would be USA missiles.

The former U.S. Ambassador to Syria, Ryan Crocker, says that the U.S.is obligated to strike Syria again. Although its Security Council veto this week was expected, Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, said Moscow's decision to stand with its ally Assad amounted to "protecting a monster over the lives of the Syrian people". It is also unclear what form the operation will take, or how long it will last.

That assault prompted the United States to launch several dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base.

"Trump said, referring to Moscow's alliance with Assad".

One woman who refused to be identified because of fear for her security described herself as "trembling" and said she stocked up on food and is considering not sending her kids to school.

Russian Federation and Iran deny the claims.

He had repeatedly said he would not telegraph military moves toward foes, including North Korea and Islamic State.

Officials of the Trump administration have been discussing with officials of France and Britain a possible joint military response to Syria's alleged poison gas attack. A British government statement said the two agreed the attack in Syria was "utterly reprehensible" and that the global community must respond "to uphold the worldwide prohibition on the use of chemical weapons".

"He's doing exactly what he criticized Obama for doing", Mara said on Morning Edition. Macron would not require parliamentary approval to launch strikes and he has described chemical weapons use as a red line that must be upheld. I would hope that it's true that the administration is in contact with the French and other allies, so it becomes not just a USA strike, but a coalition strike, if you will.

"This attack that took place in Douma is a barbaric attack", May said on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, May said Britain had been working with allies "to get an understanding of what happened on the ground".

Trump spoke by phone with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

About 500 people may have been affected by a suspected chemical attack last week on Syria's rebel-held town of Douma, according to the World Health Organization.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Kuperwasser predicted such a military strike would likely be done together with the United Kingdom and France. But in the past four weeks alone more than 133,000 people have fled, with tens of thousands more trapped inside its largest town, Douma, UN refugee agency spokesman Andrej Mahecic said in a statement Tuesday.

Blinken told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that only days after giving the USA military another six months in Syria before it needed to pull troops out, Trump has forced his administration to change direction and focus more resources there, rather than less.
