Syria and Allies Ready for War If Trump Attacks, Official Says
13 Abril, 2018, 06:25 | Author: Gregg Anderson
The statement was the latest in a war of words raging between Washington and Moscow since Saturday's suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town Douma, just outside Damascus, which killed more than 40 people according to activists and first responders.
"We have proof that last week. chemical weapons were used, at least with chlorine, and that they were used by the regime of Bashar al-Assad", Mr Macron said, without offering details of any evidence.
Mr Corbyn told the BBC that Parliament "should always be given a say on any military action".
Despite the tension, there were signs of a global effort to head off a direct confrontation between Russian Federation and the West.
Syria's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that Trump's threats to attack are "reckless" and endanger worldwide peace and security.
"The situation in Syria is horrific".
Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said on Wednesday the Pentagon was ready to provide options for a Syria strike but the USA and its allies were still "assessing the intelligence" on the suspected chemical attack. "But also, it's a very, very delicate circumstance, and we've got to make this judgment on a very careful, very deliberate, very well-thought-through basis".
Russian Federation says Syrian forces have taken full control of Eastern Ghouta, as one of the most intensive military operations in the country's seven-year war nears an end.
An adviser to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad likened President Donald Trump's threats of a missile strike to the "delirium" of a losing sports team, saying her country and its allies are ready for a USA -led war if it happens.
The British government has signaled it is ready to back United States military action against Syria, saying it is "highly likely" the Assad regime used chemical weapons on its own people and that such action could not go unchallenged.
Trump's threat of retaliatory military action prompted a slew of Russian comments warning that USA strikes could trigger a direct military clash between them.
The U.S., France and Britain were in extensive consultations about launching a military strike as early as the end of this week, U.S. officials have said.
"I believe there was a chemical attack, and we are looking for the actual evidence", Mattis said.
The British leader's office said Cabinet ministers "agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime".
The recent attack on Douma came after months of warnings that the "de-escalation zone" status of Eastern Ghouta had become "a farce", as State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in February, when the US accused Russian Federation and Syria of carrying out attacks on civilians and targeting medical facilities.
Mattis, who was spotted alongside CIA Director Mike Pompeo at the White House on Wednesday, said he stands "ready to provide military options if appropriate".
Meanwhile, the Russian military said the Syrian government is now in full control of Duoma, once held by rebels opposing Assad. Should the USA interfere with events in Syria? A U.S. guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is in the Mediterranean.
The Syrian conflict has increasingly widened the rifts between Moscow, Washington and European powers, and inflamed the bitter rivalries that run across the Middle East.
Mattis said he personally believes Syria is guilty of an "inexcusable" use of chemical weapons, while noting that the global fact-finding team would likely fall short of determining who was responsible.
The remarks by Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, followed claims by French President Emmanuel Macron of "proof" that Syria used chemical weapons in the attack and a declaration that France will respond at a "time of our choosing".
In the past, Trump has condemned others for forecasting military plans, repeatedly blistering President Barack Obama during the 2016 campaign.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said he had spoken to Trump on Wednesday and would speak to Putin on Thursday night about the apparent chemical attack.
British Prime Minister Theresa May's senior ministers agreed on the need for action at a Cabinet meeting on Thursday, but Downing Street did not specify what measures the United Kingdom would take.
May is not required by law to seek parliamentary approval for offensive military action, but recent interventions in Libya and Iraq have been put to a vote.
