find could determine if the u.s. and its allies follow through with threats of a retaliatory strike russia has warned any such act could trigger war. the destroyer is u.s.s. donald cook and u.s.s. puerto have been positioned off the syrian coast but if and when they get the order to strike it's not yet clear. after this bellicose tweet in which he threatens syria's ally russia that missiles will be coming u.s. president donald trump put off a final decision on military action but we're looking very very seriously very closely at that whole situation and. we'll see what happens folks here see what happens it's too bad that. the world puts us in a position like that the president's more measured tone was echoed by the secretary of defense who said the u.s. is still seeking evidence on the chemical attack there's

chemical weapons watchdog are expected to begin their probe into mount on saturday it's not clear whether the u.s. and its allies will wait for the results before deciding on strikes. journalist and she bore a following developments in syria from neighboring lebanon she joins me now from beirut until the inspectors have arrived there how likely is it that they'll have proper access to the side to determine what exactly happened there. but the team and i've just been with last evening they should be in damascus today and tomorrow they will be going to do the syrian regime has invited them and says that they would be given all the access that the wire and it would be taken everywhere that they are skeptical having said that the russian was there on the ground so in the western countries in america especially there is a fear that the russians would have already clean up and in that sense the o.p.c. w. would not find anything of any significance now on one side where this argument is
3:05 pm
being made in the united states on the other hand we are being told that the mandate is limited which means that while the o.p.c. w in a weekend sort of check. whether chemical attack took place are not it cannot a certain it cannot be in the responsibility on any one so i'm not up both sides but arguments can be true if the russians have cleaned up the site that means that they should have no problems with having o.p.c. w. pin the responsibility on either party and if they haven't cleaned it up then the limited minded argument would stand meanwhile we are seeing a sustained u.s. naval buildup off the coast of syria and an increase in american activity what is a general view there on the possibility of military strikes. well the one that's on in washington now is how can the not hit russian assets be just hit the city in assets but that's going to be very difficult because over the last few days bashar al assad has moved. syrian assets on the russian bases the forces amount scattered
3:06 pm
now if you see we know that the u.s. need to store as a noun the mediterranean and they do have tomahawk missiles don't mark missiles that dumb missiles which essentially means that when they hit their target it's not precise we saw that happen last year but last year it was it was a limited strike now this year when trump says that it's going to be a smart strike he's talking about the g.m.'s precision guided missiles now these if he uses there is a chance that he does hit specifically syrian assets and not russian assets we have to remember we are also hearing rhetoric from the russians and they have a very supreme air defense system so they can actually shoot down businesses up in the air so at the moment can america strike syria without striking russians that's the challenge for them until vora embarrass thank you very much for

escalation or anything that could damage the stability of the region but we cannot let regimes do anything they want especially not crimes against international law. on the streets of paris opinion is divided on whether france should take part in any strike on syria. what the syrian dictator is inflicting on his people is frightening as far as france is concerned an intervention is legitimate and he. and the russians should say clearly to assad now you must stop and you should get out and then we would avoid a conflict but if we strike the russians will be obliged to respond. there will never be strikes. because france and europe are scared of russia. the russians provide us with gas. the provision orders britain's royal air force would also likely join a strike on syria 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 how we can prevent it with monetary catastrophe that comes with use of chemical weapons in the future the continued use of chemical weapons can challenge british ministers have been holding a special cabinet meeting to discuss joining possible military action against syria the prime minister would not need the approval of parliament to give the go ahead for strikes. meanwhile germany has ruled out taking part in any military strikes in syria but also anglo-american said germany would help send a signal that the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable her words for echoed today by the german foreign minister. in brussels. is unexceptable that russia has now twelve un security council resolutions on syria just to maintain its influence there and protect president assad. this cannot be
