Trump plans to talk to allies before Syria strike decision

Trump plans to talk to allies before Syria strike decision

Abdul-Hamid Alyousef, 29, holds his twin babies who were killed during the suspected chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun in the northern province of Idlib, Syria, on April 4, 2017.

US President stated on Twitter that a potential US attack on Syria could happen "soon or not soon at all".

The president also blasted Iran and Russian Federation for supporting Assad's regime, particularly in the wake of the suspected chemical attack. Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said that images of victims of the purported attack were fakes staged with "Britain's direct involvement", without providing evidence.

Britain and France have joined the United States in the military operation, Trump said.

The president also said that "America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria". Last weekend, he condemned the chemical attack in a tweet and warned there would be a "big price to pay".

Brad's forecast | Powerful storm system brings severe storms & blizzard conditions
Friday night after sunset rain will begin to change to snow from west to east as the cold side of this storm system moves in. The weekend warm front however, will provide for extremely different conditions for cities just miles apart.

Sputnik: Other countries are taking him seriously and they're also making plans in Syria based on Trump's tweets because that's the way Trump communicates to the world, how unsafe of a situation is that really?

Referring to Assad, Trump said, "These are not the actions of a man, they are crimes of a monster instead".

Officials also said that the USA has compiled intelligence from the US and other countries, including images, that indicate the Syrian government was behind the weekend attack.

Russian Federation has been a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government and has helped turn the tide of war in his favor since entering the conflict in September 2015.

What I will say about the latest Trump tweet is he does not think that they're going to attack Syria, it will not take place very soon. "Last Saturday the Assad regime again deployed chemical weapons to slaughter innocent civilians".

Charlottesville School Board picks interim member
Norton City School District officials are asking voters to approve a 3.5-mill continuing levy for operating expenses next month. At the top of the salary schedule, a teacher with 18 years of experience and 45 credits beyond a master's degree earns $74,447.

The Assad regime is known to have stocks of the nerve agent sarin, and has previously used a mixture of chlorine and sarin in attacks, say USA officials.

At the House hearing, Democrats grilled Mattis on the wisdom and legality of Trump ordering an attack on Syria without explicit authorization from Congress. Mattis argued it would be justified as an act of self-defense, with 2,000 US ground troops in Syria; he insisted he could not talk about military plans because an attack "is not yet in the offing".

As part of his "America First" campaign pledge, Trump had promised to remove the USA from costly and prolonged foreign entanglements.

The White House has said the mission to fight Islamic State in Syria was "coming to a rapid end" while offering no timetable for US withdrawal.

"Now we have to make some further decisions so they'll be made fairly soon", Trump told reporters at the White House. It's an endeavor that is projected to cost at least $100 billion and take at least 10 years to complete.

Sebastian Janikowski, Seahawks agree to deal
