Russian Federation to deploy troops to site of chemical attack in Syria

President Donald Trump says an attack on Syria could take place "very soon or not so soon at all!"

An attack on Syria, which President Trump threatened by tweet Wednesday, would be delivered by missiles instead of manned warplanes, and it could backfire, according to Loren Thompson, a defense industry consultant and military analyst at the Lexington Institute, a think tank.

Trump said Wednesday that "missiles will be coming" in response to an alleged chemical attack in Ghouta's last rebel holdout of Douma at the weekend.

He tweeted: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Over the weekend, Mr. Trump blamed Syrian President Bashar Assad and his global allies, including Russian President Vladmir Putin for the apparent attack that left dozens dead and hundreds injured.

Former Secretary of Defence Ash Carter, speaking in Senate testimony in late 2015, said at the time that the vast majority of Russia's strikes in Syria, some 85 to 90 per cent, "use dumb bombs, which obviously increases the possibility of civilian casualties".

Experts on Russia's powerful air defenses in Syria told Business Insider that the US would not easily defeat the Russian arsenal.

"As we've said, Russian Federation ultimately bears responsibility for the brutal targeting of countless Syrians with chemical weapons".

Theresa May is reportedly moving submarines towards Syria, and may authorise a military strike without a vote in Parliament.

Zasypkin also said a clash between Russian Federation and the United States over Syria "should be ruled out and therefore we are ready to hold negotiations".

Russia's military has propped up Assad's regime as it wages a multiway war against both the so-called Islamic State and various antigovernment forces.

So much for never telegraphing the administration's military plans.

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.
