'Cannot exclude war' Russian Federation envoys says as U.S. prepares Syria strike options

U.S. troops were sent to Russia in the late 1910s to fight the Red Army and Vladimir Lenin's government

Speaking at a news conference in the capital, Maria Zaharova condemned the threats from U.S. President Donald Trump aimed not only at Syria, but also Russian Federation.

Sergei Ryabukhin, head of the budget committee of the upper house of Russia's parliament, said Russian Federation may stop supplying titanium to Boeing.

In London, Prime Minister Teresa May said in a statement, "This evening I have authorised British armed forces to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use". Pierce said she wanted "to state categorically ... that Britain has no involvement and would never have any involvement in the use of a chemical weapon".

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres opened the Security Council meeting without referring to either Russian Federation or the U.S., but stressed his deep concern that the growing tensions could spiral into broad conflict. "The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war".

The U.N. chief told an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council Friday called by Russian Federation that the highly volatile situation risks "escalation, fragmentation and division as far as the eye can see with profound regional and global ramifications".

"The intelligence provided certainly paints a different picture", Sanders said.

He cited the Palestinian-Israeli divide, the Sunni-Shiite divide "evident from the Gulf to the Mediterranean", and other divisive factors reflected in a multiplicity of conflicts.

Guterres also said a failure to hold someone accountable for the attack could encourage more.

But a wider attack will face multiple immediate and longer-term risks, including the possibility of a risky escalation with Russia, Assad's main military backer, in a country that Moscow has used as a testing ground for some of its most sophisticated weaponry.

It was the phrase "a version" in the earlier part of his testimony that seemed to suggest a paid version could be a possibility. The tech giant's announcement comes on the heels of co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimony before Congress this week .

The Russian military spread conspiracy theories about an impending chemical attack by rebels in Eastern Ghouta nearly a month before the strikes on Douma, according to a report by The Daily Beast. Moscow warned against any strikes and threatened to retaliate.

A day before a team from the global chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, just east of Damascus, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.

In early March, Gerasimov said they had intelligence about a "provocation" planned by rebel militants, engineered to accuse Syrian government troops of using chemical weapon in Eastern Ghouta. The statement said none of the patients had any symptoms of chemical poisoning. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said that images of victims of the purported attack were staged with "Britain's direct involvement, " without providing evidence.

The 15-member council met on Saturday, at Russia's request, the fifth time it has met on Syria since a suspected deadly toxic gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma a week ago.

Mattis said the president's National Security Council would be meeting later Thursday to "take forward the various options" for Trump.

At stake in Syria is the potential for confrontation, if not outright conflict, between the US and Russian Federation, former Cold War foes whose relations have deteriorated in recent years over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine, its interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The Syrian government and Russian forces in Syria possess truck-mounted surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapons systems.

"They are the guarantors of law and order in the town", RIA news agency quoted Russia's defence ministry as saying.

U.S. Defence Secretary James Mattis said there were no reports of U.S. losses during the initial airstrikes. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.
