Theresa May 'seeks full role' in Syria strikes

President Donald Trump has emerged from a meeting with his national security team without a "final decision" on how to respond to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria. Are two dozen or more casualties the tipping point for American outrage in Syria, or only the addition of "chemical" to a headline as the catalyst to awaken American grief and rage?

As tensions mount between the U.S. and Russian Federation over a possible USA strike, the Kremlin said a crisis communications link with the United States meant to avoid an accidental clash over Syria was being used by both sides.

Earlier Thursday, Trump appeared to walk back earlier comments in which he warned Russian Federation to brace for missiles which he said "will be coming".

Sanders adds that USA officials are "continuing to assess intelligence" and are "engaged in conversations with our partners and allies". The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, was convening a meeting of her Cabinet on Thursday afternoon, at which she is expected to make the case for supporting the United States in any military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Mr Peskov said the Kremlin was closely following Syria-related announcements from Washington and reiterated a Kremlin call for restraint.

United States officials have refused to rule out direct military engagement with Russian Federation, with the White House saying "all options are on the table".

The United States is consulting with Britain and France about a joint military response to an alleged toxic gas attack in the rebel-held town of Douma that medics and rescuers said left at least 40 people dead on Saturday.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said: "It is a very, very delicate circumstance, and we've got to make this judgment on a very careful, very deliberate, very well thought-through basis, knowing exactly ... how strong the evidence is".

Trump on Wednesday vowed to thwart Russia's missile defense system in Syria, warning that rockets "will be coming, nice and new and 'smart.'" In tweeting about a potential attack, Trump appeared to publicly telegraph military plans - something for which he heavily criticized former President Barack Obama back in 2013.

Haley made clear that the US administration was taking time to assess the full implications of military strikes on Syria after Russia warned that it could lead to a unsafe US-Russian war.

Macron said Thursday that France has proof the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and said France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".

Addressing the Security Council, Haley laid out Washington's case for resorting to force, challenging Russia's claim that military action would be in violation of worldwide law. The Syrian government has denied the allegations. This is in contrast to an incident one year ago in which the USA government had video and other evidence of certain aspects of an actual attack by Syrian aircraft, which involved the use of sarin gas.

But British involvement in further military intervention is controversial at home, in a country still haunted by its role in the US-led invasion of Iraq. Multiple Islamic State retaliatory attacks have targeted French soil, including just last month.
