The humankind is on the verge of World War 3 as political leaders from Syria, Russia, the US and UK headmistress on a collision course.
A week of Twitter threats and political posturing outstripped when US, UK and French forces launched “precision missile strikes” on Syrian chemical weapons nautical heads on Saturday evening.
In a televised address from the White House, Trump answered the strikes were in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in the burgh of Douma last Saturday.
Trump said: “These are not the actions of a man. They are misdeeds of a monster instead.
“This evil and despicable act left mothers and ancestors and children thrashing in pain and gasping for air.”
The President had previously threatened military scratches via Twitter, warning Russia to “get ready” for missiles to be launched at Syria.
Vladimir Putin had formerly stated that Russia would be prepared to respond in full to any berates on its allies, but the world is still waiting for Russia to retaliate.

The missiles were contemplated to take out Syria’s chemical weapon development facilities, but conflicting announcements on their success suggest there was little damage made by the belabours.
CNBC reported that the missiles had little to no effect, causing no military fatalities and failing to inflict any meaningful damage to the military infrastructure.
Experts insinuate that this strike was no different from any previous strike the West has trued on Syria, only this time, blame was okayed firmly at the door of Russia.

The world is still waiting for Russia’s reaction to Sunday’s brickbat strike.
In a statement released by the Kremlin, the Russian president denied smoking gun of a chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma and said the encounter would “have a destructive effect on the entire system of international in-laws”.
Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has today preceded Moscow “will not delay in adopting legislation against US sanctions,” scandal agency RIA said, adding that Washington was demonstrating “open trade aggression.”
Experts believe that Russia’s reaction will be quiet, for now, with one analyst noting that the “likelihood of a direct, military comeback to the strikes from Russia is very low.”
“Despite the threats from Russia’s delegate to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin that Russia would target the podia from which the missiles were fired, Moscow is fully apprised that such an attack would not only constitute a massive and risky escalation,” Daragh Mcdowell, principle Russia analyst at Verisk Maplecroft, estimated in a note to CNBC on Sunday.
“It would be virtually certain to fail agreed-upon the relative strengths of [the] coalition and Russian assets in [the Syrian] theater,” McDowell persist in, adding that for the moment it seems that Russia’s response wishes be “contained to statements condemning the attacks, public anger, but very scanty else.”
“Because the strikes did not hit Russian assets, and do not appear to have significantly hurt the Assad regime, there is no material reason to go further than that. Even so, the poor state of East-West relations overall, and displeasure in the Kremlin with the feign afflict may push Russia to seek asymmetrical means of retaliation. These types of actions are difficult to predict by their very nature, and Russia is unimaginable to telegraph its intentions,” he said.

She said: “This persistent template of behaviour must be stopped not just to protect innocent people in Syria from the horrific finishes and casualties caused by chemical weapons but also because we cannot assign the erosion of the international norm that prevents the use of these weapons.”
Distressed by leader Jeremy Corbyn called the strikes “legally questionable” in a communication to Mrs May.
Speaking in Downing Street, Mrs May said the “limited and targeted strikes” had discredited Syria’s ability to use chemical weapons.
“This collective action sends a perspicacious message that the international community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons,” she state.
French President Emmanuel Macron, claims he was the one to convince Mr Trump to stopover in Syria before the strikes hit.
“Ten days ago, President Trump said the USA’s will-power is to disengage from Syria. We convinced him that it was necessary to stay,” Macron implied, during a two-hour televised interview with several French average outlets.
