Syria 'Chemical Attack': US Weighs Up Military Response


Rep. Adam Smith, the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, said he sees no legal justification for a usa strike in Syria, absent explicit authorization by Congress.

Wictor stated that the photographs suggest that Special Forces carried an attack, which included using bombers, missiles, heavy machine guns and light cannons. "We'll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon", he said.

The talks stressed that threats of some Western countries to attack Syria, "based on the lies fabricated by these countries and their tools of the terrorist organizations inside Syria, came after the liberation of the eastern Ghouta and the failure of a new bet of those upon which these countries have relied in the war on Syria".

US President Donald Trump's pledge to fire "smart" missiles on Syria apparently indicates that a ghost of last year's missile strike on the Arab country is already in the air.

US President Donald Trump has cast doubt over the timing of his threatened strike on Syria in response to a reported chemical weapons attack on civilians, saying it "could be very soon or not so soon at all".

The UN Security Council, tasked with maintaining global peace and security, has been riven, with Moscow virulently denying the Douma attack took place, or postulating that it was carried out by rebels.

Trump has never been skeptical of war, but he seeks to avoid regime change projects because his nationalist agenda has no place for the cost and responsibility of foreign nation-building (and, in recent years, cycles of insurgency, military surge, and reconstruction) they inevitably incur.
