Trump Administration Is Contradicting Itself On Regime Change In Syria

Trump Ordered Attack on Syrian Airfield

Russian Federation announced it was pulling out of a pact with Washington to share information about warplane missions over Syria, where a US-led coalition is also waging airstrikes on IS State targets.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will visit Moscow as planned after the G7 meeting in Italy this week.

Black is also criticizing President Trump who said the missile strikes were in retaliation for Assad's chemical attack on innocent civilians, including women and children.

The United States earlier on Thursday night launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the military airfield in Ash Sha'irat.

A joint command center made up of the forces of Russia, Iran and militias supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad slammed Friday's United States strike on a Syrian air base, saying the move crossed "red lines", Reuters reports.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iran's Hassan Rouhani said in a phone call that aggressive US actions against Syria were not permissible and violated worldwide law, the Kremlin said. Right now, I think everyone in the world sees Russian Federation as part of the problem.

"Here's what I think Assad is telling Trump by flying from this base: F-U", Graham said.

And over the weekend, the prime minister of Russia, Medvedev, wrote, the U.S.is, quote, "on the verge of a military clash with Russia".

Reiterating on remarks to the United Nations on Friday regarding U.S. strikes against a Syrian air base in response to a chemical weapons attack in the country's Idlib province a few days earlier, Ambassador Haley said that the Trump administration is prepared to launch additional strikes against Syria if necessary.

The United States is "playing the terrorism game", Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday during his first phone talks with his U.S. counterpart Rex Tillerson since the USA air strikes on Syria last week. Besides, under a Russian-US deal after the east Ghouta sarin gas incident in 2013, Damascus joined the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and agreed to destroy its stockpile under Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) oversight. So, Russia could be part of the solution.

"Yes, that will part of the discussions when I visit Moscow next week is to call upon Foreign Minister (Sergey) Lavrov and the Russian government to fulfill the obligation it made to the global community when it agreed to be the guarantor of the elimination of the chemical weapons", he told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week". "I hope Russian Federation is thinking carefully about its continued alliance with Bashar al-Assad because every time one of these horrific attacks occurs, it draws Russian Federation closer into some level of responsibility".
