As the Syrian crisis is expected to escalate after last week’s chemical attack in the town of Douma, President Donald Trump has blamed his predecessor Barack Obama for the ongoing conflict.

Trump said if President Obama had crossed his stated red line in the sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad (Bashar al-Assad is the President of Syria) would have been history!

Reports suggest that another deadly chemical attack may have been carried out in Syria on Saturday in the town of Douma.

Chemical weapons are believed to have been employed by diverse parties to the conflict in Syria on at least 35 separate occasions since the beginning of 2013.

As the U.S. is planning to attack Syria, Russia has warned the U.S. administration against such a step, as Russia wants to save Assad and his regime.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the UN, stated Tuesday that the record will not be kind to one permanent member of the UN Security Council. Unfortunately, she said, Russia has chosen the Assad regime again over the unity of this Council.

“We have said it before that Russia will stop at nothing to shield the Assad regime. And here is our answer,” Haley said.

”At a certain point you’re either for an independent and impartial investigation, or you’re not. Today for the 6th time Russia failed the Syrian people and vetoed a mechanism that would have held those who use chemical weapons against them accountable.”

The prohibition on the use of chemical weapons has been supported by virtually every country and a total of 192 States have ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention, which entered into force in April 1997, making it one of the most universally subscribed to Conventions in existence.
