Russian Federation fears 'dangerous' escalation over military intervention in Syria

Russian Federation fears 'dangerous' escalation over military intervention in Syria

Whether wittingly or unwittingly, Trump's right-wing media allies and fervent supporters are helping Russian Federation spread lies - and in doing so, they're actively providing support to a murderous dictator who has reportedly used chemical weapons against his own people at least seven times in 2018 alone.

Russian Federation has warned the United States that launching air strikes in response to a suspected chemical attack in Syria could spark a war between the two countries.

Russia's foreign minister claimed on Friday that a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was staged with the help of an unspecified foreign intelligence agency.

British Prime Minister Theresa May won backing from her senior ministers on Thursday to take unspecified action with the United States and France to deter further use of chemical weapons by Syria. "But on this occasion there is none". The ministry also pointed at previous use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops.

The attack adds fuel to the brewing trade dispute between the US and China, while also targeting Russian Federation which the White House recently imposed sanctions on and clashed with over Syria. The exchange follows the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain, and comes amid Moscow's stern warnings to the West against striking Syria.

Speaking from the White House late Friday, US President Donald Trump said the three nations had "marshalled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality".

The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and unsafe actions. that would have consequences beyond conjecture".


Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions. "The U.S. - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries". In London I think it is possible the publication of compromising Moscow's response to the involvement of British armed forces in a missile strike on Syria.

The full scope and impact of the operation is not fully known, and White House and DHS officials said they were releasing the information now in the hopes that businesses and other affected entities come forward if they have witnessed similar suspicious activity.

Guterres also said a failure to hold someone accountable for the attack could encourage more. All the geniuses tell us that Assad killed those children, but do they really know that?

He was speaking a day before a team from the global chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, the town just east of Damascus where the attack by the Syrian government forces killed more than 40 people, according to volunteer rescuers and activists.

Chuck Holton, a war correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network and frequent contributor to NRATV, also joined the chorus of right-wing voices this week, claiming that the April 7 chemical attack could be a "false flag". That had led to feverish speculation on Russian television, and from some Russian politicians, that a US strike on Syria could quickly devolve into a nuclear standoff as risky as the Cuban missile crisis. It "could be very soon or not so soon at all", he said.

Trump, in comments announcing the strikes, slammed Russian Federation and Iran as "most responsible for supporting, equipping, and financing the criminal Assad regime". He said he takes "a back seat to no one" in his view of the threat that Russian Federation presents to the US. Russian Federation is Assad's most powerful ally and its devastating air power has helped him wrest back large areas of territory from rebels since 2015.
