The British leader's office said Cabinet ministers "agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime". But he tweeted Thursday that it may come "very soon or not so soon at all!" USA officials have been consulting with France, Britain and other allies on a possible joint military operation, but the timing remained in doubt Wednesday.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable told the BBC: "Parliament can and should be recalled immediately and a vote held on this issue".

"We're looking very, very seriously, very closely, at that whole situation", the President said during a meeting with farm state lawmakers. The statement made no specific reference to military action. There is no reason for this, he wrote, adding that "Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together".

Mr Davis suggested he had changed his mind since he voted against Syrian intervention in 2013 when David Cameron was prime minister.

Geopolitics specialist Dominique Moisi, a senior adviser at the Montaigne Institute?think tank in Paris, said "we have said that we were not allowing the use of chemical weapons, that this was a red line ..."

"Those two things, I am assured, we're going to answer today".

"We don't comment on submarine movements", a spokesman said.

Kremlin-backed news agency Tass reported a Moscow official saying that Russian military police will be deployed to the city to maintain law and order.

Comey: John Kelly Called Trump 'Dishonorable' for Firing Me
" Comey is a liar and a leaker and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing", McDaniel said. As part of its effort, the RNC is also distributing talking points to Trump surrogates to further its case against Comey.

On Thursday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis urged caution on attacking Syria.

Assad's main ally Russian Federation has repeatedly issued warnings to the U.S. that it will shoot back at missiles, warships and jets if they strike against Syria, bringing the United States and Russian Federation into direct conflict for the first time.

President Donald Trump has put off a final decision on possible military strikes against Syria after tweeting earlier that they could happen "very soon or not so soon at all".

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkinhad, warned they would shoot down USA rockets and "even the sources that launched the missiles" - suggesting they could hit American aircraft or warships.

Trump had vowed to take swift and decisive action against Syria since reports of a suspected poison gas attack on a rebel enclave that killed dozens of people. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it! You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

In Syria, French warplanes carried out 23 sorties in late March and early April but fired no strikes, as part of support for Syrian opposition forces fighting in the last pockets of IS control. The Syrian government has denied the allegations.

It came nearly exactly a year after a chemical attack in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people.
