U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday blamed Russia's inaction for helping fuel a deadly poison gas attack against Syrian civilians last week, saying Moscow failed to carry out a 2013 agreement to secure and destroy chemical weapons in Syria.
"For his part, Tillerson on Friday said he was disappointed" by Russia's reaction "because it indicates their continued support" for the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
"I'm hopeful that we can have constructive talks with the Russian government, with Foreign Minister Lavrov and have Russia be supportive of a process that will lead to a stable Syria".
Some US and other Western counterterrorism officials have said the missile strike could, nonetheless make the fight against the IS in Syria more hard. Tillerson said at the time that "steps are underway" to form an worldwide coalition that would seek to remove al-Assad through some kind of negotiated settlement.
The United States on Thursday fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from warships in the Mediterranean at the Shayrat airfield near Homs in central Syria. "US aircraft operating over Al-Tabqah are already ostensibly in range of the Russian S-400 system at the Humaymin Air Base, and we might see Russia deploy more air defense assets to Syria", Jeremy Binnie, the Middle East editor of Jane's Defense Weekly, said in an e-mail.
Pressed to clarify Sunday, National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster said the goals of fighting ISIS and ousting Assad were somewhat "simultaneous" and that the objective of the missile strikes were to send a "strong political message". But as the Inquisitr recently described, fears are high about a possible World War 3 situation due to America's involvement with Syria, and in the case of World War 3 things may change which would certainly make it possible that the president could deem a military draft necessary.

Elichai Taherlev, 20, of the Golani Brigade was killed in the incident, and another 19-year-old soldier was slightly injured. The attack was part of a spate of violence that broke out in September 2015 but has abated in recent months.
McMaster also made clear that Trump wants a world-wide response to Assad's action that would include Russian Federation and Iran.
So far, the Russian military does not appear to have taken any threatening actions, such as directing its battlefield radar or air defense systems to confront the Americans, or carrying out aggressive actions in the skies, USA officials said. "Gabbard should not be in Congress", the former Vermont governor tweeted.
"Assad has to recalibrate but not fundamentally change his military approach that they've been engaging in since the Russian intervention", Lesch said.
You can all breathe a sigh of relief as Business2Community has reported that this story from the satirical website Real News Right Now has proven to be false and President Trump has not really said that he would reinstate the military draft.
