Trump 'still considering' new sanctions against Russia

Worst of all is that Iran is likely interpreting Trump's gestures as a sign that the United States doesn't regard its building of military bases and weapons factories in Syria as an issue it cares about.

Clearly, with the U.S. fighting in six countries, Commander in Chief Trump does not want any new wars, or to widen any existing wars in the Middle East. But he is being pushed into becoming a war president to advance the agenda of foreign policy elites who, almost to a man, opposed his election.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his use of the phrase "mission accomplished" over the U.S. -led missile strikes on Syrian targets after it was seized on by the media.

Syria and its ally Russia deny any chemical attack took place, and Russian officials went even further, accusing Britain of staging a "fake" chemical attack. Sources present at the closed-door meeting briefed Reuters on Üzümcü's remarks. A team has been in Syria since Saturday, but has not yet been permitted to go to Douma.

Until Saturday, the city was the last rebel-held town near the capital and the target of a government offensive in February and March that killed hundreds and displaced tens of thousands.

Meanwhile, the Times reports that Russia has hacked into millions of computers in preparation for a possible cyber attack. Yarmouk, Syria's biggest camp for Palestinian refugees, has been under the control of Islamic State fighters for years.

Asked whether it was a nerve agent or chlorine, he said, "We are very much aware of one of the agents". The suspected poison gas attack creates a conundrum for Western powers, who are determined to punish Assad for using chemical weapons but have no strategy for the sort of sustained intervention that might damage him.

On Monday, Russia said that a team of chemical experts from the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) would inspect the site of the suspected attack on Wednesday.

The assumption of the War Party seems to be that if we launch larger and more lethal strikes in Syria, inflicting casualties on Russians, Iranians, Hezbollah and the Syrian army, they will yield to our demands.

He said it would prevent swift action and argued the Labour leader should have called for a vote of no confidence in Mrs May if he disagreed with the strikes.

And when did Congress authorize U.S. acts of war against Syria, its air force or political leadership?

"Or serious force is to be used but stopping far short of becoming engaged in a war?"

The resolution proposes "to establish an independent mechanism based on the principles of impartiality and professionalism to investigate the use of chemicals as weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic", according to a draft copy obtained by The National.

If the message Trump is sending to Assad is that he can go on killing people - though not with chemical weapons - that is just as much of an abdication of America's moral authority as Obama's spineless responses. "Absolutely confident of it. And we have the intelligence-level of confidence that we needed to conduct the attack", Mattis said.

Besides the pocket south of Damascus, rebels still hold besieged enclaves in the town of Dumayr northeast of Damascus, in the Eastern Qalamoun mountains nearby and around Rastan north of Homs.

Earlier this month, the US sanctioned the state-owned Russian arms agency Rosoboroneksport, accusing it of arming Mr Al Assad.
