Global 'chaos' looms if West bombs Syria again - Putin

Global 'chaos' looms if West bombs Syria again - Putin

He added that France wanted to launch a diplomatic initiative over Syria that would include Western powers, Russia, and Turkey.

And in a phone call with Iran's leader Hassan Rouhani, Vladimir Putin warned any further US-led strikes could provoke "chaos in global relations", while the leaders of both countries called it an illegal "act of aggression".

May said the presence of helicopters and the use of barrel bombs pointed the finger of blame squarely at the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

In a separate interview, Haley told CBS News that new sanctions against Russian Federation, which has forces in Syria supporting the Assad regime, would be announced Monday that would "go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

A false alarm set off Syrian air defense systems early on Tuesday, the military said, denying earlier reports of an "outside aggression" and incoming airstrikes and underscoring the chaotic nature of the multiple actors in Syria's theater of war.

However, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the United Nations has "provided the necessary clearances for the OPCW team to go about its work in Douma".

"We all know, Syria has maintained a secret chemical programme since 2013", French ambassador Philippe Lalliot said.

Ian Poulter takes one-shot lead into final round of RBC Heritage
Poulter, the 54-hole leader, held steady on the front nine as he went out in 1-under 35 and remained around the lead. He had six final-round bogeys in a closing 72, so it was incredible he was still in it in the first place.

"The fact [Mr Assad] was making this more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop". "We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalized".

The Labour leader said chlorine has been used by "a number of parties in the conflict" in Syria as a weapon and questioned the legality of the airstrikes.

In an indication that the West, too, would prefer to lower tensions, the USA and Britain both reiterated that their military action on Saturday was not aimed at Assad, Putin's ally, only at his use of chemical weapons.

Mr Trump already made clear his commitment to further hit Syria, should Mr Assad attempt to use chemical weapons again.

Trump's use of the phrase "Mission Accomplished" in a tweet on Saturday also raised eyebrows, since it is closely associated with former President George W. Bush's premature declaration of victory in Iraq, in 2003.

Mr Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organised an insurgency that would tie down United States forces for years.

Haley acknowledged that Trump's goal is to "see American troops come home". "And if that happens to be a United States warship and they sink it, I don't' want to think about what's going to happen". "Unfettered access essential. Russian Federation and Syria must cooperate".

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah group that has hundreds of fighters backing Assad's forces, said the airstrikes failed to "terrorize or break the spirits" of Syria and its allies.

"All these states should leave us alone", she said.

Damascus and its ally Moscow say the allegations of a chemical attack are "fabrications".

Russian Federation and Iran have called the action a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

No matter how wise you consider this intervention, legal scholars generally agree that the United Nations Charter doesn't allow the use of military force to prevent chemical weapons attacks - no matter how evil - without UN Security Council approval. "They also chanted against the USA and its allies", according to Iraqi News. On Monday, they highlighted their military gains, as Syrian forces drove through Douma.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in Saturday's Pentagon briefing that there had been a "2,000% increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours" following the strikes, AXIOS reported.
