Young: US needs 'swift, measured, strong' response to Syria

Several Conservative MPs who are now ministers, including Steve Baker, David Davis and Tracey Crouch, voted against military action in 2013, when Ed Miliband defeated David Cameron's government over the issue.
Now, Trump is threatening imminent military strikes against the Syrian government forces he blames for a suspected chemical gas attack and rattling a saber at Syria's patron, Russia.
Trump's warlike tweets came in response to a warning from Russia's ambassador to Beirut, who took to a television network run by the armed group Hezbollah to declare that any UnitedStatesmissiles would be shot down "as well as the sources they were fired from". Its argument that a one-off military strike is enough to deter Assad from using chemical weapons again is clearly untrue.
Trump is believed to be considering standoff missile strikes against facilities related to the production and delivery of chlorine and sarin or sarin-like agents.
Russian Federation has warned the UnitedStates that a strike on Syria could trigger a potential major showdown between the two former Cold War adversaries - a prospect not considered in decades.
"All the indications are that the Syrian regime was responsible and we will be working with our closest allies on how we can ensure that those who are responsible are held to account".
The 2017 US assault is probably the best guide for what Trump may do now, but he could choose other launch options. "The Russians told the Syrian army's leadership they had intelligence on possible USA and French targets in Syria", Observatory head Abdel Rahman said.
Russian lawmakers said Moscow would view a US airstrike on Syria as a war crime that could trigger a direct military clash between the two powers.
In a later tweet Wednesday morning, Trump asserted that "our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War". Tensions between the two countries have escalated on a broad range of issues - from the crisis in Ukraine to the war in Syria to the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in Britain, which triggered the massive diplomatic war.
Earlier this week, Trump said his administration was working on a response to the suspected chemical attack on Saturday, including military options. Surkov warned that "it's going to be tough", but added cryptically that "it'll be fun". "Any proposed change to the role of United Kingdom forces in Syria must be subject to full scrutiny and a vote in parliament", McDonald said.
"The situation in the world is increasingly chaotic", Putin said. "It's possible Iran will attempt a response against us". Less than two weeks ago, Trump said he wanted to bring US troops home from Syria.
The US Navy launched 59 Tomahawk cruisemissiles from destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean, targeting Shayrat air base, its aircraft, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems and radars.
The leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said however that the British parliament should be given a say on any military action.
The missilesmost likely to be used in a US attack would probably be launched from USA warships, opening the possibility that the Russian diplomat was threatening open warfare.
He tweeted: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".
At the same time Mrs May is under pressure to give Parliament the chance to vote before committing United Kingdom forces to any new action in Syria, amid fears it could draw the West into direct conflict with Assad's main backer, Russia. Under a 2013 agreement for which Russian Federation was a guarantor, Syria was to have eliminated all its chemical weapons, but it has used chlorine and perhaps other chemicals since then.
