Trump tells Russian Federation to 'get ready' for Syria missile strikes

President Donald Trump warned Russian Federation on Wednesday that it should "get ready" for a missile strike on Syria, vowing to thwart any missile defenses. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it", Trump tweeted. That was before Saturday's attack.

"We don't really want to defeat Assad militarily", said Michael O'Hanlon, an analyst at the Brookings Institution, a non-profit public policy think tank in Washington. "We're still working on this".

President Donald Trump canceled a trip to Latin America so he could oversee the US response to Saturday's incident in the town of Douma, and conferred on Syria in phone calls with the leaders of France and Britain.

France and the United Kingdom are consulting with the Trump administration on a possible joint military response. President Trump had cancelled a foreign trip to manage the Syrian crisis.

"The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly", it said in a statement.

Less than an hour after the first tweet, Trump tweeted there is no reason for a poor relationship with Russian Federation. The term was meant to contrast with "dumb" bombs lacking such technology.

The FAA prohibition doesn't apply to flights of USA government agencies or contractors.

President Trump broke with United States national security procedures to warn that an attack on Syria was imminent on Wednesday after the Russian ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin said that his country would shoot down USA weapons targeting Syria and destroy the site where the missiles were launched.

He added on Twitter that there was "no reason" for a bad relationship with Russian Federation, although he admitted that it was the worst it had been since the days of the Soviet Union. "For this particular strike, (secrecy) doesn't matter that much". His message said, in part, "Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?"

The New York Times editorial board said that Trump should know by now that tough talk without a coherent strategy or follow-through is risky.

It was the first direct United States military action against forces commanded by President Assad.

Had Trump planned to pull advisers out of Syria?

It seems the U.S. and its allies may be preparing for one.

The U.S., France and Britain have been in extensive consultations about launching a military strike as early as the end of this week, U.S. officials have said.

USA Today: Syria Chemical Attack Would Be The Eighth Since Trump Took Office - "A suspected weekend chemical attack in a Damascus suburb would be at least the eighth since President Trump took office and the worst since he launched a military strike at Syrian government forces last April".

"According to a United Nations source, Syrian military planes were also transferred to the Russian Khmeimim air base, near Latakia, on the Mediterranean coast, in Assad's stronghold", Le Figaro wrote.

The French president does not need parliamentary permission to launch a military operation.

The Federal Aviation Administration has prohibited US airlines or foreign airlines flying with a USA certificate from flying over Syria since at least 2014 because of anti-aircraft weapons controlled by non-state actors, threats made by extremist groups and ongoing military fighting. Multiple IS terror attacks have targeted France, including one last month.

The attack that killed dozens last weekend in Douma, one of the last pockets of rebels against the Bashar Assad regime, has been condemned worldwide by countries such as the US, though his supporters including Russian Federation have said there is no evidence that such an attack even occurred.

Now this latest attack seems to have put those US plans on hold. Possible options included hitting more than a single target and extending strikes beyond a single day. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal discussions.

Macron, asked whether France would take military action, said his country would continue discussing technical and strategic information with USA and British allies and "in the coming days we will announce our decision".

"The monster is an American monster that so far refuses to destroy its chemical arsenal", Jaafari said, referencing Haley's own comments.

According to several media reports, representatives of both nations in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) blocked each other over a move to allow global investigations into chemical attacks in Syria, where a civil war has been on since 2011.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May spoke to President Trump and President Macron in separate calls on Tuesday.
