Trump seeks to build alliance to strike Syria

The strike on the air base reportedly killed 14 people, including four Iranians. Israel has not responded to the accusations, though The Associated Press notes it typically refrains from commenting on strikes. In the past, the US and its Western allies have accused Syria of using Sarin gas against civilians, a charge Damascus denies.

"A military intervention under far-fetched and fabricated pretexts in Syria, where there are Russian soldiers at the request of the legitimate Syrian government, is absolutely unacceptable and could have the most dire consequences", the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement obtained by Agence France-Presse.

Syrian opposition activists and paramedics said more than 40 people were killed in last weekend's suspected chemical attack and blamed the government.

Even as Trump has been weighing a United States response to the chemical attack, he's remained enraged at the Cohen raid. Russian military officials have said they will shoot down any USA missiles and counterattack against launching platforms if they are seen as a threat to Russian service personnel in Syria.

He said that after conferring with his military advisers, he would soon decide on how to respond, and against whom. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'", Trump wrote. He added, "Everybody's gonna pay a price". The US delegation said it had done everything possible to accommodate Russian views and that the abortive council session marked a "decisive moment".

The Washington Examiner reported, citing Pentagon sources, that there were several possible plans for a military response to the attack in Syria.

The European Union also laid the blame squarely on Assad's Government.

President Trump put Syria and Russian Federation on notice Wednesday morning, promising that missiles fired at Syria "will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" - while also telling the Kremlin that it should not partner with a "Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" It said Syria shot down five of them while the other three landed in the western part of the base.

Earlier, Russia's United Nations envoy, Vassily Nebenzia cautioned the U.S.to "refrain from the plans that you're now developing", saying Washington would "bear responsibility" for any "illegal military adventure".

Amos Yadlin, a former Israeli fighter pilot and ex-head of Israeli military intelligence, stopped short of saying Israel was responsible for the airstrike. One option includes a strike similar to last year's, when the United States launched 59 cruise missiles on a Syrian Air Force airfield in Homs, the report said.

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said Vice President Mike Pence would travel instead to the Summit of the Americas in the Peruvian capital of Lima. He said that if airstrikes went ahead, they would target Syrian government chemical facilities. The organisation, also known as the White Helmets, and the Syrian American Medical Society, a medical relief organisation, did not identify the substance used but said survivors treated at clinics smelled strongly of chlorine. The rebels agreed to surrender the town to government forces after the suspected gas attack, and have been evacuating in batches to rebel-held areas in the north. First, President Bashar al-Assad cracked down on his political adversaries, which spawned a civil war in 2011.

Syria became a member in 2013 as part of a deal brokered by the USA and Russian Federation after a chemical attack in eastern Ghouta killed hundreds of people. "We should expect a more convincing response this time".
