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

US President Donald Trump told Russian Federation in an early morning tweet to prepare for "nice and new and 'smart!'" missile attacks in Syria after an alleged gas attack on the last rebel stronghold in the country.

President Trump said Sunday that there would be a "big price to pay" for the poison gas attack that killed dozens of Syrian civilians, and he issued a rare public rebuke to Russian President Vladimir Putin for backing Assad in the country's civil war.

The tweet marks the most detailed indication of what the US will do in response to an apparent chemical attack in the rebel-held Syrian city of Douma on Saturday.

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.

Trump added: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".

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

If any of those Russian forces are hit in a USA strike, Russia may feel compelled to retaliate.

Peskov added there were no plans for Putin to call Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron or UK Prime Minister Theresa May amid the crisis.

The US's military commitment to Syria, however, remains tiny compared to the US's involvement in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Trump and other Western leaders have vowed a quick and forceful response to Saturday's alleged chemical attack, which rescue workers say killed more than 40 people. The Syrian government has denied the accusations.

With Russian military assistance, President Assad launched a bloody offensive on Eastern Ghouta, which had been under rebel control since mid-2013.

U.S. think tanks, usually financed either directly by government institutions or by major corporations in the military-industrial complex, functioned as parts of sophisticated plans to justify new wars by waves of so-called "experts", Pierce explained.

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.

In an interview with Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV station, Mr Zasypkin said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted.
