3 things Donald Trump did wrong in his taunting Russian Federation tweet

"We hope there will be no point of no return". He said Assad's forcers should then push east of the Euphrates River, where USA troops are embedded with Kurdish forces.

The Russian Defence Ministry said yesterday: "We are attentively tracking the situation unfolding around Syria and in the whole region". But the Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have left no doubt over who they believe is culpable, and over their plans to respond with force.

And, even if Twitter had an unlimited character count, is a microblogging site really the proper medium on which to announce military action against a foreign power while taunting another foreign power about it? "The situation in the world is becoming all the more chaotic".

Russian Federation called a meeting of the Security Council for Friday on Syria and has asked for U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to publicly brief the body.

An emergency meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is to be convened on Monday to discuss the attack.

Syrian opposition activists and medics say a suspected gas attack last week in Douma killed more than 40 people. He added that "we support serious approaches and keep thinking that it's important not to make any steps that could further destabilize the already fragile situation".

Trump did not detail what a strike would look like, or whether these would be USA missiles.

"In the past, such reports came from Syria and were considered an attempt to minimize humiliation over the strikes", the report said. Dmitry Peskov added that it would have an "utterly destructive impact on the Syrian settlement".

At this stage it seems that the US and allies like France and Saudi Arabia could begin a strike on Syrian forces within the week.

The Russian ruble fell sharply again Wednesday as US sanctions imposed last week continued to bite and President Donald Trump threatened a missile strike on Syria.

The U.S. and its allies have threatened to respond militarily to an alleged chemical attack near Damascus last weekend.

"We also invited the newly-elected USA president to visit us, because it was presumed that the meeting between Russian and USA presidents would be held in Vladimir Putin's native city of St. Petersburg".

Erdogan said he'll talk to Putin later on Thursday, a day after he talked to President Donald Trump about Syria. The military expenditure of Russian Federation is about $60bn. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" he said, warning of a military response. That strike did not appear to have had the desired effect of deterring Assad from further use of chemical agents.

Trump's administration has sought to show they are being tough on Russian Federation, with a series of economic and diplomatic actions, including new sanctions last week against government officials and oligarchs. "We have said it before that Russian Federation will stop at nothing to shield the Assad regime".

Assad says the Western threats endanger global peace and security, and that military action would only contribute to the "further destabilization" of the region.
