USA recklessness in Syria

Amrita Sen from Energy Aspects said that in spite of Middle Eastern tensions and looming new USA sanctions on Iran, oil had outperformed most expectations this year and may have rallied too far too fast.

Speaking on Fox News on Sunday, Haley listed three aims for the United States: ensuring that chemical weapons are not used in any way that poses a risk to U.S. interests, that so-called Islamic State group is defeated and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

"The global community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life", she said in an interview aired Sunday.

"They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical-weapons use", Haley said.

Fortunately, the US-led strikes were carefully tailored not to hit Russian or Iranian interests in Syria.

The United States will want to maintain a dialogue with Russia about strategic stability following Western missile strikes on Syria, Russian news agencies cited a Russian Foreign Ministry official as saying on Sunday.

But she repeated a comment she made Saturday at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council in NY, saying the U.S.is "locked and loaded" and ready to punish Syria again if it continues using chemical weapons.

Russian Federation had earlier warned that it would equip Syria with better anti-air missile defense systems to take down any missile attacks in the future.

President Trump Responds to Comey's Memoir
Former FBI Director James Comey says he thinks it's possible that President Donald Trump might be compromised by the Russians. Still, despite all the Comey craziness, the president's approval ratings have been slowly ticking upward for weeks.

Following up on President Donald Trump's threat, the USA - along with allies Britain and France - rained cruise missiles at three locations in Syria on Saturday, the biggest strike by the West in the seven years of the war in Syria.

According to the administration source, on March 24, Trump's aides explained to him that the U.S. "would be ousting roughly the same number of Russians as its European allies part of a coordinated move to punish Moscow for the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter on British soil", The Washington Post wrote.

The leaders of Russia, Iran and the Hezbollah group in Lebanon said Sunday that Western airstrikes on their ally, Syria, have complicated prospects for a political settlement to the country's seven-year conflict.

Haley said the three USA goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm US national interests, defeating the Islamic State group and having a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing. "This is not about trying to turn the tide of the conflict in Syria", he told the BBC, adding that Russian Federation was the only country able to pressure Assad to negotiate an end to the conflict. The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used.

Assad denies he has used chemical weapons, and the Trump administration has yet to present hard evidence of what it says precipitated the allied missiles attack: a chlorine gas attack on civilians in Douma on April 7.

"Saying that it has been a success, we won't know until we see whether the regime continues to use chemical weapons", King said on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday.

The military said there were three targets: the Barzah chemical weapons research and development site in the Damascus area; a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs; and a chemical weapons "bunker" a few miles from the second target.
