Trump warns Russian Federation about shooting down missiles in Syria: 'Get ready'

Posted April 13, 2018

Responding to Moscow's warning to shoot down any missile fired at Syria, US President Donald Trump has addressed Russian Federation via Twitter, warning of "nice and new and smart" missiles coming to the war-torn country.

"As the President noted on April 8, the chemical weapons attack by the Syrian regime against innocent civilians in Duma, Syria on April 7 was horrifying, and demands an immediate response from the worldwide community", Pahon added.

On Tuesday, the White House announced that the president was canceling his trip to South America this week in order to oversee the USA response in Syria.

He added: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".

The Pentagon has long criticised Russian Federation for using so-called "dumb bombs", or weapons that lack precision guidance technology, while striking targets in Syria. It is not in Russia's interest to escalate the war, so the Russians would probably urge restraint again if the USA and allied attack was limited, the former official said.

Russian lawmakers also warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime, saying it could trigger a direct military clash.

Mr. Trump called out Putin along with the leadership in Iran for backing Assad, who he referred to as "Animal Assad".

At least 43 people were killed and more than 500 needed treatment over the suspected nevere agent gas attack on the rebel enclave in Eastern Ghouta.

The Syrian government and Russian Federation say the reports of a poison gas assault on the Syrian town of Douma are bogus.

Any countries that carry out a strike on Syria over the chemical weapons attack could also defend their action under Article 51 of the U.N. Charter, which covers an individual or collective right to self-defense against armed attack.

But Rousey , who was watched by her former UFC boss Dana White, stepped in for the save to deny Triple H and his wife victory. In the final moments of the match, both Stephanie and Triple H tried to deliver pedigree to Angle and Rousey, respectively.

"It's not at all odd that it (the United States) supports the terrorists in Ghouta and condones their fabrications and lies to use them as a pretext to target Syria", the official source said.

The United States, Britain and France have argued the incident bears all the hallmarks of a strike ordered by the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

So much for never telegraphing the administration's military plans. "Stop the arms race?" he wrote.

On Tuesday, Russia's ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin told Hezbollah's TV station Al Manar that if there was an American strike on Syria, they would be shot down and the launch sites would be targeted.
