Syria says U.S. threats 'reckless escalation': state agency
Apr 13 2018
Last night the U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley slammed Russian Federation for blocking a vote calling for a new inquiry into responsibility for use of chemical weapons in Douma after the weekend's apparent attack.
The last time the US launched cruise missiles into Syria, it made sure to warn Russian Federation the strike was coming.
May declined to say if she was concerned by Trump's tweet, reiterating that Britain was working with allies to work out exactly what had happened.
Trumpadded: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War". "We need all nations to work together", President Trump Twitted. Trumppromised a big response and has consulted with his national security team and foreign leaders for days about whether, and how hard, to strike Assad.
In Mauro's opinion, it would be beneficial for the U.S.to "double-down" on its relationship with Kurdish fighters.
Meanwhile, Russia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has called for global inspectors to visit the site of the suspected attack. "Stop the arms race?" he wrote.
Vladimir Chizhov, Russia's ambassador to the European Union, toldEuronews that Russia is "shocked by yet another provocation with the so-called chemical attack in Douma".
The public suggestion of USA military confrontation with Russian Federation is sure to raise tensions in an already volatile situation and add more confusion to U.S. policy in the region.
Russia, a close ally of the Syrian regime, has pointed the finger at the White Helmets in the wake of similar incidents such as last year's chemical attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun.
President Trump's latest Tweets follow the raid of Special Investigator David Mueller at the offices of President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael G. Kohen. Washington argued it was attacking Islamic State in Syria to eliminate a threat to Iraq, the United States and its allies.
United States think tanks, usually financed either directly by government institutions or by major corporations in the military-industrial complex, functioned as parts of sophisticated plans to justify new wars by waves of so-called "experts", Pierce explained.
