Trump security adviser urges Russian Federation to rethink Syria support

The Saudi Foreign Ministry praised Trump's "courageous decision" and blamed the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad for the chemical weapons attack. While Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, described regime change in Syria as a US priority and inevitable, Tillerson suggested that last week's American airstrikes in retaliation for the chemical attack hadn't really changed US priorities toward ousting Assad.

"Using chemical weapons is an atrocity", Democratic Sen.

Retired US Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, a CNN military analyst, said the frigate appeared to be a show of force by Russian Federation, which since late 2015 has been conducting airstrikes in Syria against forces opposing the Syrian regime.

At the United Nations, Russia's deputy ambassador, Vladimir Safronkov, strongly criticized what he called the U.S.

He called the Assad government a main force against terrorism and said it deserved the presumption of innocence in the chemical weapons attack.

"Whether this is over is up to President Assad", said this official.

He said the United States expected Russian Federation to take a tougher stance against Syria by rethinking its alliance with Assad because "every time one of these horrific attacks occurs, it draws Russian Federation closer into some level of responsibility".

The United States has conducted air strikes against Islamic State, which controls territory in eastern and northern Syria, and a small number of U.S. troops are helping rebel militias.

Democratic Rep. Tim Walz, a retired National Guard command sergeant major, said Trump must communicate a "holistic strategy" for dealing with the conflict in Syria to Congress.

"Now, we are not saying that we are the ones who are going to effect that change".

The new stadium is ready and waiting for the Premier League, and the facilities and setup are nothing short of first class. The affable Hughton told the Voice of Sport at the start of January: "We've also got good experience in the side".

USA officials informed Russian forces ahead of the missile strikes on and avoided hitting Russian personnel.

After listening to an argument that it was best to minimize both Russian and Arab casualties, the official said, Trump chose the minimum option and ordered the launch of a barrage of cruise missiles against the Shayrat air field. After months of allegations of ties between his election campaign and the Kremlin - the subject of current congressional and FBI investigations - Trump has found himself clashing with Putin. Shortly afterward, officials say the hospital was targeted.

The officials, who insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the sensitive matter, said they believe the hospital attack may have been an effort to cover up evidence of the earlier assault. Shortly after 4pm, Trump signed off on the missile attacks, according to the White House. "It is unclear whether the missile attack last night is the new American policy".

Putin went on to say that Russian Federation had "information that a similar provocation is being prepared.in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs where they are planning to again plant some substance and accuse the Syrian authorities of using (chemical weapons)".

He declined to say whether Trump now believed Assad should relinquish power.

Trump was at his Florida estate for his first summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping. US officials noted that the timing of the strike had the possible added benefit of signaling to China that Trump is willing to make good on his threat to act alone to stop North Korea's nuclear pursuits if Beijing doesn't exert more pressure on Pyongyang.

Russian Federation doesn't appear to be seriously considering the demand, however, instead issuing their own public warning to the USA that they'd better stop attacking the Syrian government, and that they'd face a military response if they attempted any more strikes.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer bizarrely heated up the rhetoric at a Tuesday press conference comparing Assad unfavorably to Adolph Hitler, claiming the latter never employed chemical weapons. France, Italy and Israel also welcomed the strikes.

Not everyone was cheering in Washington, where the president's decision to act without congressional authority angered a mix of libertarian Republicans, Democrats and the far right.
