Trump is analyzing situation over Syria

Trump is analyzing situation over Syria

A global chemical weapons watchdog says it has deployed fact-finding teams to investigate a suspected chemical attack that hit Douma, a town in Syria's Eastern Ghouta and the last rebel stronghold.

"So striking at Syria is not a good solution, but doing nothing after the use of chemical weapons is even worse", he said.

"Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however, indicated that evidence of what happened was still being studied".

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

"In the past, Trump has condemned others for forecasting military plans, repeatedly blistering President Barack Obama during the 2016 campaign".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn raised the spectre of the war on Thursday as he insisted MPs should be recalled from their Easter break to have their say on Syria.

USA officials have refused to rule out direct military engagement with Russian Federation, with the White House saying "all options are on the table".

At the House hearing, Democrats grilled Mattis on the wisdom and legality of Trump ordering an attack on Syria without explicit authorization from Congress. Mattis argued it would be justified as an act of self-defense, with 2,000 US ground troops in Syria; he insisted he could not talk about military plans because an attack "is not yet in the offing". "So we're looking at that very strongly and very seriously".

Her office said that May had talked with US President Donald Trump by telephone on Thursday evening to discuss Syria.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday said France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and that France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkinhad, warned they would shoot down USA rockets and "even the sources that launched the missiles" - suggesting they could hit American aircraft or warships.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it is "vital that parliament has the chance to debate and decide in advance" of any military action, which he warned "risks a risky escalation of the conflict".

"You are a minority Government, and you need to seek the consent of Parliament before you commit the United Kingdom to any action". The Syrian government has denied the allegations.

Echoing the United States stance, France said Assad's government had reached a "point of no return" with repeated use of chemical weapons. France is already involved in the USA -led coalition created in 2014 to fight the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.

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.
