May mulls Syria action despite cautious mood in UK

May mulls Syria action despite cautious mood in UK

President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday that missiles "will be coming, nice and new and "smart"!" - which sparked speculation over a sudden US attack on Syrian sites.

He has previously told his national security team he wants United States troops to exit Syria within six months.

But on Thursday, Trump tweeted: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place". But he tweeted Thursday that it may come "very soon or not so soon at all!"

Trump indicated the strikes would continue until the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons ends.

The drumbeat of military action appeared to grow louder, as Russian Federation stonewalled diplomatic efforts at the United Nations and France declared "proof" that Moscow's Syrian ally carried out a deadly chemical weapons attack that killed more than 40 Syrians.

"We have not yet made any decision to launch military attacks into Syria", Mattis told lawmakers on the House Armed Services committee.

Mattis was expected to voice those concerns in Thursday's meeting at the White House, according to USA officials. Trump said Thursday on Twitter.

He accused Washington of putting global peace at risk and said the situation was "very dangerous". "We have to make some further decisions".

Rep. Adam Smith, the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, said he sees no legal justification for a US strike in Syria, absent explicit authorization by Congress. He made a decision not to travel to Latin America so that we could focus on this.

Earlier Thursday, Trump appeared to walk back earlier comments in which he warned Russian Federation to brace for missiles which he said "will be coming".

The U.S. and its allies have threatened to respond militarily to an alleged chemical attack near Damascus last weekend.

Syrian opposition activists and rescuers say a chemical attack launched by government forces in a rebel-held area near Damascus late Saturday killed more than 40 people, allegations denied by the Syrian government. Officials said Thursday the trio has yet to reach firm agreement on the scale or timing of a response.

Britain's government weighed the possibility of military action against Syria on Thursday, agreeing the "need to take action" despite polls showing the public remains wary of military intervention.

"That was the first step in this process, but we're continuing to look at a number of options", she said.

Merkel stressed the importance of a united position in the face of a suspected chemical weapons attack that the West is blaming on President Bashar Assad's forces.

Macron went further in an interview with France's TF1, suggesting the gas used was chlorine. Speaking on TF1 television, Macron said "we have proof that chemical weapons were used, at least chlorine" in recent days by Syrian President Bashar Assad's government. Mattis told lawmakers he hasn't seen firm proof that Assad's regime was behind the attack, though added that he believed it was.

Referring to the allegation of a Russian military official that there was an attack, but it was staged by the White Helmets brigade component of the rebels in Syria, she said the intelligence provided "certainly paints" a different picture, and the President holds Syria and Russia responsible for the chemical weapons attack.

A United Kingdom -based Syrian monitor says that troops have been emptying airports and bases, while opposition fighters have told Sky News Arabia that government-allied forces have been retreating from some positions and moving equipment.

In warning against a missile strike, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday that such a move could destroy evidence on the ground and interrupt the work of worldwide investigators.
