Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said everything is being done by the US and its allies to bring on war.
Zakharova said during a press briefing in Moscow: “Militarist statements keep coming from Washington, which threaten us with a major escalation. And the target isn’t just Damascus, but Russia because it purportedly covers for Bashar Assad and thus shares responsibility for alleged ‘war crimes’.”
Moscow believes an incident was staged by Islamist militants to drag the West into war.
“How can you, being aware of the value of unverified or faked reports, decide to use force and issue international threats without having a real understanding to the situation on the ground?” Zakharova asked.
Both the US and Britain are undeterred about extending their illegal campaign under international law in Syria and are getting ready to kill even more people than they did in Iraq and Libya in the name of “humanitarian” concerns.
There has been no conclusive evidence of a chemical attack yet, and the real humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen is being totally ignored, but the Atlanticist war mongers seem unconcerned about their flimsy narrative.
US President Donald Trump has been tweeting threats while meeting with officials to discuss the US response to the alleged Syrian government chemical attack in Douma.
A source told CNBC that there are eight possible targets that have been identified by the US to destroy with “nice and new” American missiles, including two Syrian airfields, a research center and a chemical weapons facility.
British Prime Minister Theresa May announced on Thursday “the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime”.
“Following a discussion in which every member present made a contribution, cabinet agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged,” a statement released from Downing Street read.
On Wednesday, the British Royal Navy ordered its submarines within missile range of Syria.
Berlin has said that it would not participate in military action in Syria, the Associated Press reported. “Germany will not take part in possible military action — I want to make clear again that there are no decisions,” Chancellor Merkel told reporters at the Bundestag.
