US Close to Stumbling into Direct Conflict with Russia amid Domestic Political Turmoil

Trump seen last summer with Russian President Vladimir Putin griped Wednesday that the U.S. has the worst relationship it ever did with Moscow

The White House said it was continuing to assess intelligence and talk to its allies about how to respond.

Worldwide chemical weapons experts were travelling to Syria to investigate an alleged gas attack by government forces on the town of Douma which killed dozens of people. British officials said up to 75 people were killed. She noted in the meeting that Russian Federation "has stopped at nothing to defend the Syrian regime's multiple uses of chemical weapons". We know that this was a chemical weapon that was used.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", said Moscow's United Nations ambassador Vassily Nebenzia on Thursday.

Russian Federation is expected to call an emergency session of UN Security Council to discuss the strikes on Syria at 11A.M. EST.

The use of chemical weapons is a war crime.

He cited the Palestinian-Israeli divide, the Sunni-Shiite divide "evident from the Gulf to the Mediterranean", and other divisive factors reflected in a multiplicity of conflicts. "A lot of this stuff is classified at this point", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

Britain's defence ministry said that while the effectiveness of the strike is still being analyzed, "initial indications are that the precision of the Storm Shadow weapons and meticulous target planning have resulted in a successful attack". He also slammed Washington for putting global peace at risk.

The chairman of the worldwide affairs committee of Russia's upper house of parliament, Konstantin Kosachev, said the strikes were a violation of worldwide law and probably created to prevent investigators from the global chemical weapons watchdog from doing their work.

Konashenkov said Friday that Britain was "directly involved in the provocation", but didn't elaborate or provide evidence.

The strikes were the biggest intervention by Western powers against Assad in the country's seven-year-old civil war and pitted the United States and its allies against Russian Federation, which itself intervened in the war in 2015 to back Assad. Two days ago, US President Donald Trump warned that missiles "will be coming" in response to that attack.

In response to the US military action, Russia's ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said in a statement that Russian Federation had warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences". Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.

The attack began at 4 a.m. (0100 GMT) with missiles hitting the eastern suburbs of Damascus, shaking the grounds from a distance.

Leaked Apple memo: 12 employees were arrested past year for leaking secrets
In a leaked internal memo , the company had reportedly told employees it "caught 29 leakers" a year ago and 12 were arrested. The administration of the company Apple chose to punish their employees for disclosing classified information to the media.


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

Looking for news you can trust?

"We are carrying out an assessment of the material damages", the official added. "We're still working on this".

Mr Trump has since tempered his remarks on attacking Syria and even as he consulted allies Britain and France, there were signs of efforts to prevent the crisis from spiralling out of control.

The statements came as the US, United Kingdom and France reportedly consider responses to the attack, which Westerm leaders believe was ordered by the Syrian government. The US says it suspects that sarin gas also was used. We are totally predictable.

Speaking of Assad and his suspected role in last week's chemical weapons attack, Trump said, "These are not the actions of a man".

Trump did not detail what a strike on Syria would look like, or whether these would be USA missiles. "After that statement, the USA and all other Western media should be aware of their responsibility for what has happened".

Shortly after his tweeted warning to Russia, Trump took a more conciliatory tone in lamenting that the U.S. -Russia relationship "is worse now than it has ever been".

She added that Russian Federation did not want to escalate any conflict, adding that it was easy to begin a conflict but hard to end it.

He met his national security team on the situation in Syria later in the day and "no final decision has been made", the White House said in a statement.

Russia, which has military forces deployed in Syria in support of the Assad regime, has warned Western air strikes risk starting a war.

Defense Secretary James Mattis strongly urged the president during a meeting on Thursday to rethink his attack on Syria. The Syrian government has denied the accusations.
