Either Donald Trump-who campaigned on never, ever letting our enemies know what we're planning to do*-is going to war with Vladimir Putin to protect a bunch of brown people who also happen to be Muslims or Trump ran that tweet by Putin in advance and got Putin's okay because Mueller is closing in and anything that makes Trump look tough on Russia-up to and including a phony and/or proxy war with Russian Federation itself-is good for Trump and good for his handlers in the Kremlin.
Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova questioned whether the idea behind military action was to "use the smart missiles to sweep the traces of the provocation under the rug".
Defence Secretary Mattis, however, indicated that evidence of what happened was still being studied. "We're still assessing the intelligence, ourselves and our allies".
But in a statement Wednesday, WHO, citing reports from its health partners, said an estimated 500 patients seen at medical facilities exhibited symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals.
What might a military strike look like?
"So he's doing the exact same thing that he criticized his predecessors for doing".
Syria's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that Trump's threats to attack are "reckless" and endanger worldwide peace and security.
He wrote, "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".
Soon afterwards, however, he suggested it was time to "stop the arms race" and said there was no reason for the low in relations between Russian Federation and the US.
Prices began to rally as U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to fire missiles at Syria in response to a suspected chemical attack last week.

Syria invites OPCW to investigate attack
Trump ordered airstrikes against a Syrian government airbase in April 2017 in retaliation to a previous chemical weapons attack. But the incident has thrust Syria's seven-year-old conflict back to the forefront of global concern.
Last week, the White House announced that the USA military mission in Syria "is coming to a rapid end".
Syria has denied that it used poison gas.
Trump's threat of retaliatory military action prompted a slew of Russian comments warning that us strikes could trigger a direct military clash between them.
It repeated its assertion that a suspected chemical weapons attack carried out in the Syrian town of Douma had been faked by the "White Helmets" organisation, rejecting Western allegations that Syrian government forces were responsible for it. The "reckless escalation" by the U.S.is no surprise from a country "that has sponsored and is still sponsoring terrorism in Syria", the ministry said.
The parties are finding themselves one step closer to the use of "red buttons", Korkodinov said. "To have done so in the earlier incidents and not to do so now would be a very wrong signal to send". I expect there will be a strike like a year ago. "When I will not say because I don't like talking about timing".
Kuperwasser predicted such a military strike would likely be done together with the United Kingdom and France. The rest of us need to get busy deciding as well, but before we do, it's important to remember how we got here.
Russian Federation has deployed advanced air-defenses to Syria, and they're pretty much the top of the line.
Writing on Twitter, Trump acknowledged Russia's threat issued through its envoy to Lebanon that Moscow would intercept any missiles the United States fired at Assad's forces - and target their launching pads.
She condemned Russian Federation for vetoing a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for a new body to determine responsibility for the attack, saying it meant "there can be no role now for investigations by the United Nations".
On Tuesday the Kremlin's ambassador to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, repeated his warning to the West against military action in Syria.
Pan-European air traffic control agency Eurocontrol on Tuesday warned airlines to exercise caution in the eastern Mediterranean due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria in the next 72 hours.
While US President Donald Trump is weighing up options, reports emerged signaling that Washington is beefing up its forces in the Middle East. Rami Abdulrahman, the head of the organization, tells NPR it has documented 21 cases where people died "from suffocation", and could not confirm the cause.
