Trump Taunts Russia, Says to 'Get Ready' for Missile Strike in Syria

Hundreds were injured in the suspected sarin gas attack

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday canceled a planned trip to Latin America on Friday to focus instead on talks with Western allies about possible military action to punish Assad for the suspected gas attack on a rebel-held town that had long withstood a devastating Syrian government siege.

Sen. Mike Rounds said the US should target President Bashar Assad's "command and control system" in retaliation for a chemical-weapons attack on civilians last weekend in a rebel-held suburb of Damascus.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested in a tweet aimed at Russian Federation that the United States will conduct a missile strike on Syria.

The Russian military said on March 13 that it would respond to any USA strike on Syria by targeting any missiles and launchers involved. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'", Trump wrote.

However, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the United States was still assessing evidence over who was behind the attack, which it has said bears the hallmark of Assad's forces.

In a later tweet Wednesday, Trump lamented that "our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War". There is no reason for this. "Stop the arms race?"

Bolivia, one of 10 non-permanent council members and a strong supporter of Russian Federation, requested the meeting to address "the recent escalation of rhetoric regarding Syria and the threat of the use of unilateral actions", according to the request sent Wednesday and seen by AFP.

Border Patrol listen as President Donald Trump speaks after inspecting border wall prototypes in San Diego on March 13. The Customs and Border Protection agency said the agents' actions "were not consistent with our normal procedures ".

The Syrian government has said United States threats to attack it are "reckless" and endanger global peace and security.

Oil prices spiked Wednesday after US President Donald Trump hinted at possible military engagement with Russian Federation in Syria and explosions were reported over the capital of Saudi Arabia. The president also said that "nothing's off the table".

Trump's response comes as it has been revealed that over 500 patients in Syria showed symptoms of a chemical attack.

The U.S., Britain and France have argued the incident bears all the hallmarks of a strike ordered by the regime, which has been blamed for previous attacks by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

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

The U.S. Navy said on Tuesday that the strike group, headed by the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, would set sail for the Middle East and Europe on Wednesday.
