Russian Federation warns of 'dangerous' escalation over Syria

Germany Says It Has To Assume Russia Behind Recent Cyber Attack "Every single" UK organisation in danger of cyber attack

Western governments called on Russian Federation and Syria to give unfettered access to Douma, the site of the alleged attack.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she had authorized British armed forces "to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability". "But on this occasion there is none".

"By continuing to employ chemical weapons against innocent Syrian civilians, the Assad regime has violated global law and abandoned its own commitments to the worldwide community", she told reporters.

"Those three countries - the US, Britain and France - if they think they can attack us and attack our sovereignty, at the time, we would have no other choice except applying Article 51 of the charter that gives us the right to defend ourselves, the legitimate right to defend ourselves", Jaafari said.

Meanwhile a highly placed Russian politician likened Trump to Adolf Hitler, and said he regarded the military action as a move against Russia.

On Sunday, the day after the attack, the United States president said Russian President Vladimir Putin bore responsibility for the "atrocity" in rebel-held Douma, because of his support for the Syrian government.

The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and risky actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".

The U.S. president, who has tried to build good relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, had sharply critical words for both Russia and Iran, which have backed Assad's government.

Trump Lawyer Forced to Reveal Another Client: Sean Hannity
The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's home and office. Trump said Sunday that all lawyers are now "deflated and concerned" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen.

Trump wants to review all Cohen material before investigators
Before that, he tweeted that "attorney-client privilege is dead" and lashed out at the investigation, calling it a "witch hunt". Cohen was actually under investigation for months by the US attorney in NY , according to the report .

The Russian propaganda machine is hard at work in the aftermath of the airstrikes on Syria, pushing disinformation about the chemical attacks and accusing the US of wanting to start another world war. When he announced his plan for the strikes against Syria on Friday night, he said Russian Federation "must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilised nations as a force for stability and peace". This is something they said all along.

The investigators, who are only mandated to determine if chemical weapons were used and not who used them, were expected to start their investigations into the Douma incident on Saturday, the Netherlands-based agency said.

President Donald Trump accused China and Russian Federation of devaluing their currencies, opening a new front in his argument that foreign governments are taking advantage of the US economy to support their own expansions.

Chuck Holton, a war correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network and frequent contributor to NRATV, also joined the chorus of right-wing voices this week, claiming that the April 7 chemical attack could be a "false flag".

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

"For this reason, we can't rule out the possibility Russian Federation may intend to use these set of compromises for future offensive cyber operations as well", Joyce said.

Early Saturday morning local time, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that more than 100 missiles were fired by the USA -led coalition retaliating against Syrian President Bashar al-Assads suspected use of chemical weapons. "If there is a strike by the Americans, then ... the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired", he said in Arabic. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"

The capture of Douma has clinched a major victory for Assad, crushing what was once a centre of the insurgency near Damascus, and underlines his unassailable position in the war. Rebels and jihadist insurgents are largely contained to two areas on Syria's northern and southern borders.
