Trump Says US-Russia Ties 'Worse Now' than During Cold War

The Trump administration already carried out a guided missile strike in Syria that was speculated to have been a one-off intervention to defuse the calls for war with Syria and Russian Federation. "No Collusion, so they go insane!"

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova hit Trump in a Facebook post: "Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not the legal government that has been fighting worldwide terrorism for several years on its territory".

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted. However, "he left unmentioned that Russia's own diplomats in London are no stranger to it".

He added: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".

"People say Trump is insane and he would like to carry out his threats", the woman said. Russian Federation needs our help with their economy, and that it would be very easy to do.

He complained that the investigation is "headed up by. all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for (former President Barack) Obama", although Mueller is a Republican and was appointed as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by both Republican President George W. Bush and Obama. We are proponents of a serious approach.

Moscow and Damascus have called on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate the attack and find the real perpetrators. President Bashar al-Assad's government - which receives military backing from Russian Federation - denies being behind any chemical attack, a BBC report said.

The Russian state news agencies RIA Novosti and Tass meanwhile reported that a high-level Russian delegation arrived in Syria, where it was going to meet with Assad. Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday, vowing that "smart" missiles "will be coming". "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

In response, Russia's foreign ministry said: "Smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not towards the lawful government".

Trunp was apparently angered after the chemical attack on the Syrian town of Douma, which killed 40.

Trump mocked Moscow's threat to shoot down any U.S. missiles targeting Syria and pilloried Moscow for its ties to the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Asked if he had seen enough evidence to blame Assad, Mattis said: "We're still working on this".

He did not elaborate but added that the US military stood ready to provide military options, if appropriate. It was unclear if his remarks reflected unease about Trump's apparent move toward military action.

"The Syrian issue was discussed, including the recent missile strikes on the T-4 airfield in Homs by the Israeli Air Force", the report said.

According to information from the Russian newspaper "Vzglyad", Russia will retaliate if such a strike damages their aircraft stationed in Syria. A US guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is in the Mediterranean.

"We will stand by Syria's government against any foreign aggression ..."

The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation have denied that such an attack ever happened.

"We're rapidly reaching an understanding of what happened on the ground", she said.
