WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is “extremely concerned” about reports that Syrian forces recently used chlorine gas as a weapon in attacks in the eastern Ghouta area of Syria, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Thursday.While not ruling out military action, of course.
The latest unconfirmed attack came on Thursday, in the rebel-held town of Douma. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said three people suffered respiratory problems after a rocket attack.
A senior US official told AFP that military options against Damascus similar to those launched in April 2017 were always on the table and "always feasible."
Trump "hasn't excluded anything" in the bid to halt the programme, the official said.I'm extremely concerned the US is looking for a pretext- Any pretext will do. As has been the case previously
"Using military force is something that is still considered."
