Trump skips South America trip as United States mulls Syria response

039;The United States will respond,' US ambassador Nikki Haley says

"We have a lot of options, militarily", he said, with out giving specifics.Last year, he ordered airstrikes on a Syrian airfield used to launch another chemical attack.

Haley said Russian Federation was to blame for the council's failure to take action on Syria, now in its 8th year of war.

All of this comes after President Trump tweeted Sunday that "Russia and Iran" were responsible for the chemical attack and wared there would be a big price to pay.

After vetoing the first draft resolution presented by the United States, Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya votes in favor a second draft resolution presented by Russia for an independent investigation of the use of chemical weapons in Syria during a Security Council meeting, Tuesday.

State news agency RIA Novosti on Wednesday quoted Andrei Krasov, deputy chairman of the State Duma's defence committee, as saying that Russian Federation will treat a USA airstrike on Syria "not just as an act of aggression but a war crime of the Western coalition".

"The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly", the Netherlands-based organization said in a statement. "The United States is determined to see the monster who dropped chemical weapons on the Syrian people held to account".

Regime ally Moscow said it would propose a United Nations resolution on a "transparent and honest" investigation with the OPCW's involvement.

And they point out that both areas are close to Anfield and that fans were going to gather outside the stadium regardless. Our team is built to create and attack, that's why we made the decisions we did to go forward.

Medical sources say dozens were killed in the alleged attack but exact numbers are impossible to verify.

A senior Russian lawmaker warned the USA that Russia would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime.

Syria's government and its ally Russian Federation have denied the chemical attack took place, but rescuers and medics said that dozens of people, including many women and children, were killed.

But Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia has indicated the Kremlin might veto such a move because "it contains some unacceptable elements". "But if the United States does carry out an airstrike in response to this use of chemical weapons against citizens then Australia would support any action that is targeted calibrated and proportionate", she said.

A rival measure put forward by Moscow failed to garner enough votes for adoption, laying bare the divisions within the council over Syria as the threat of Western military action loomed large.

The AFP news agency quoted French government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux as saying on Tuesday that "if a red line had been crossed, there will be a response", adding that intelligence shared by the two leaders "in theory confirms the use of chemical weapons". Lyons called that response "small" and recommended Mr. Trump think "through whether he wants a tactical response, something quick on the ground, or he's got to think through the strategy hopefully involving our allies".
