GETTY STRIKE US forces hit Syria last year from warship USS Porter

Moments after President Donald Trump told Russian Federation to prepare for a USA missile attack, he seemed to offer hope of reconciliation and a helping hand in the midst of crisis over chemical weapons use in Syria and the West's response.

"The leaders exchanged views on the situation in Syria, including in the light of allegations by a number of Western states accusing Damascus of the use of chemical weapons".

Sanders says, "The president holds Syria and Russian Federation responsible for this chemical weapons attack". "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

'Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart!" . In the past Trump has vowed to stand up to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Earlier, Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron had vowed a "strong, joint response", while Jim Mattis, the United States defence secretary, said nothing was off the table in terms of military action. But he has threatened military action in response to Syria's suspected chemical attack, which activists and rescuers say killed at least 40 people.

The Syrian government denied it carried out a poison gas attack in Douma, the last rebel-held town in the eastern Ghouta suburbs.

Russian Federation is the biggest ally of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's regime and warned against strikes, notably by the United States in reprisal for an alleged chemical attack against rebel-held Douma that has sparked worldwide outrage and "could destabilize the already fragile situation in the region", the Kremlin said on Wednesday.

Two Israeli fighter jets, using Lebanese airspace, fired eight missiles at the T-4 military airbase, the Russian military said, but offered no further information.

Israel has not responded to the accusations.
