Trump says Russian Federation ties worse than Cold War, blames Mueller

Trump says Russian Federation ties worse than Cold War, blames Mueller

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

Russian Federation had earlier warned that any US missiles fired at Syria over a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel enclave would be shot down, reported Reuters.

However, US policymakers would have to seek to ensure that Russian personnel in Syria were not killed or injured in any such strike, Kwiatkowski pointed out.

And, even if Twitter had an unlimited character count, is a microblogging site really the proper medium on which to announce military action against a foreign power while taunting another foreign power about it?

"The more time that passes allows the Russian military in Syria to take positions that will complicate any deconfliction and reduce the USA targeting options".

However, according to Andrei Illarionov, Putin's senior economic adviser for six years, Russia's warning against USA military action will not be backed up with military might.

"This attack that took place in Douma is a barbaric attack", May said on Wednesday.

Bolton continued to consistently advocate such rapid measures publicly, Kwiatkowski noted. She has said the use of chemical weapons "cannot go unchallenged".

The prospect of launching missiles at Syria - missiles that Russian Federation has pledged to shoot down - is a very serious thing to decide. "An attack on North Korea means war with China; an attack on Syria exceeding a certain level could mean war with Russian Federation", she said. The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation have denied that such an attack ever happened.

Moscow and Damascus have called on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate the attack and find the real perpetrators.

Velayati said he hoped the northern Idlib province, which is dominated by al-Qaida militants would be the next to fall to government forces.

"The President indicated in a tweet that the bombs would be "smart" and the response a major one".

Writing on Twitter, Trump acknowledged Russia's threat issued through its envoy to Lebanon that Moscow would intercept any missiles the United States fired at Assad's forces - and target their launching pads.

"We are aware that the United States carrier battle group led by the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman and escorting ships are heading to the Persian Gulf and are scheduled to arrive in about early May", he said.

But in practice, Moscow appeared to be taking Trump at his word, by taking in some of Assad's most valuable military assets at its air base in Latakia for their protection, and by sending into the Mediterranean all 11 Russian warships from its naval base at Tartus.

In a bid to avoid an escalation, Sweden proposed a Security Council resolution on Thursday, seen by Reuters, that would ask Guterres to send a high-level disarmament team to Syria to address "all outstanding issues on the use of chemical weapons once and for all".
