Trump Insists Missiles Are Coming To Syria, But Won’t Say When

April 12, 2018 - 7:41 am

WASHINGTON (1010 WINS) -- The president has warned Russia that the missiles are coming -- not to Russia of course -- but to Russia's client Syria. The message to the Assad regime in response to a chemical weapons attack last week is that it's not a question of 'if' but 'when.'

The attack appears inevitable with the warning from President Donald Trump. Smart missiles, satellite guided precision weapons, are poised to launch from the air and the sea. The U.S. and Britain could have subs in the Mediterranean armed with Tomahawks, but there is a U.S. destroyer laden with Tomahawks already there. A French warship off Lebanon's coast, and French aircraft could launch from Jordan. The British could launch from Cyprus.

The president clarified his position on Twitter, writing; 'never said when an attack on Syria would take place.'

A spokesman for Vladimir Putin said Russia does not participate in Twitter diplomacy. The Russian military said the Assad regime is now in full control of the town that was being held by rebels prior to the chemical attack.
