president donald trump has warned syria's ally russia that missiles are coming and his response to the specter of chemical strike in duma near the capital damascus moscow has hit back saying america should target terrorists not the syrian government. general has called on the security council to prevent the situation spiraling out of control white house correspondent. this is how the united states responded to last year's nerve agent gas attack in qana by attacking a syrian air base with tomahawk missiles and it's how the u.s. may act again a little truck displayed the syrian government for a recent suspected chemical attack outside damascus with their troops on the ground in syria he's also accusing russia of complicity for supporting president assad in
a series of two. it's a wednesday morning president donald trump warned missiles will be coming and taunted get ready russia because they will be coming nice and new and smart russia has proven themselves to be responsible in part for this they guaranteed that the use of chemical weapons by syria would not happen again they failed at that russia shot back in the war of words with trump it says there's no proof a chemical attack occurred on facebook the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman posted smart missile should fly towards terrorists and not towards the lawful government which has been fighting international terrorism for years it will be met and it will be met forcefully for days trump has been meeting with top military leaders and advisors. clued in on wednesday with defense secretary general james mattis we're still assessing the the intelligence ourselves and our allies were still working on this. there are also reports a u.s.
navy carrier task force led by the u.s.s. harry truman is sailing towards the region tops also been conferring with world leaders like french president bakr all and british prime minister theresa may. it's an astonishing and confusing wrapping up of rhetoric for a president who said just a week ago that he wants to get out of syria what is clear is it appears the united states is determined to hold those responsible for the suspected attack accountable can really help get al-jazeera at the white house. has more now from the reaction from moscow. well the russian response to escalating tensions around syria is to say don't do anything that would destabilize the country any further door trumps tweets seems to be
a direct response to something that the russian ambassador to lebanon said recently in an interview to a hezbollah controlled t.v. channel which was essentially that if there was a u.s. military strike against syria in any form then russian air defense systems would shoot u.s. missiles out of the sky and hit back against the launch sites of those missiles now he seems to be slightly misquoting something that the russian chief of general staff general gerasim off said about a month ago which was that if russian personnel russian infrastructure was threatened by u.s. strikes in syria then there would be such a response so we don't quite know whether this misquoting was intentional or not but the russian general response to all this has been not really to take donald trump's bait the foreign ministry says that any u.s.
missile should be targeted at the terrorists in syria not as the foreign ministry puts it the legitimate governments assets governments and the kremlin has said rather dismissively that russia does not deal in twitter diplomacy that they are more serious in their approaches. the world health organization is demanding immediate unhindered access to confirm reports that more than five hundred people in duma showing signs of having been exposed to chemical weapons and says its partners on the ground in duma have reported symptoms that include difficulty breathing and destruction to the central nervous system. that has more on the situation in duma from gaziantep near the tacky syrian border. it's a strange wait inside syria where air strikes or missile strikes by the united states are imminent people on the ground in the seized area of where this chemical attack on saturday but they have been telling us about their difficulties and their
suffering not moving the moving image is only getting worse after this attack and this rhetoric that's been ratcheting up between the united states and russia fighters on the ground are not actually hopeful by anything that will be moving after these strikes because they say this is not the first time that the united states will be carrying out these strikes and they say that the united states will be warning the russians in advance of how and where it's going to hit them so it is a very strange wait for them dearly for the u.s. president is tweeting about his attack he's saying that it's going to be shining in new missiles that the russians are going to face inside syria but yet he's going to warn them in advance as well on the ground inside duma more people have been able to leave today allowed five thousand people left for another northern part of syria people have been besieged there for years and activists on the ground are saying that all with all of this rhetoric the suffering of the people inside syria or the
fate of the assad government which has been carrying out attacks with impunity is not going to change but as a former u.s. ambassador to syria he says there should be more evidence that the syrian government launched a chemical attack before america proceeds with a military response. there is an agreement that the organizations who are prevention of chemical weapons should go will go to syria with the support of the syrian authorities. but then organization is not about to assign blame it will report back on the. whether there is evidence of the use of chemical weapons but they will not so we need to i don't know the state of planning in washington but it does seem that they the more facts of who did what. we were worthy of the impact was was felt in the in duma president mccrone wants to be involved in the whatever actions. prime minister may choose where didn't work

republican house speaker paul ryan says he won't run for re-election he will serve out his current time before retiring in january ryan's announcement follows a series of regional election wins for democrats and mounting republican concerns about holding on to that majority in the house of representatives donald trump's choice for the next u.s. actually of say says to begin his confirmation hearing later on thursday might pompei was the director of the cia when president selected him to replace rex tillerson state department correspondent profiles the man who some critics say is the wrong person for the job. confirmation hearing day is at hand for the cia director michael pollan peo on town to become the next u.s. secretary of state for thirty years. some say if confirmed pompei o eagerly will embrace president donald trump's america first
approach to foreign policy that he's a kind of guy that approaches the world thinking about how to use force and how to use coercion before he thinks about how to use diplomacy and that's you know mr secretary of state is america's first diplomat so it's concerning to me. as cia director pompei o has been skeptical that negotiations will lead north korea. to abandon its nuclear weapons program even as trump prepares for a key meeting with kim jong un in the coming weeks. during his time as a congressman called the iran nuclear deal terrible and wants the u.s. to walk away from it and he has long accused muslims and arabs of being security threats a belief after this say disqualifies pompei o from serving as the country's lead diplomat if confirmed as our next secretary of state mr pompei i would infuse u.s. foreign policy with his view that muslims are
a monolith against which america must fight but others say views won't matter to middle east leaders who are more concerned in getting weapons and political legitimacy from washington but could be problematic for pompei o is his willingness to attack moscow's behavior in syria in ukraine and in cyberspace something donald trump has up until recent days been reluctant to do here's what pompei o said last month about vladimir putin he continues to view the greatest. the greatest failure of the last century japan the dissolution of the soviet union he is. bent on returning the former soviet union to its greatness and glory but john glaser of the cato institute says knows how to stay in his boss's good graces he knows how to talk in a way that doesn't offend trump and he knows how to bolster trump's sort of attitude
and confidence it's unlikely the u.s. senate will reject pomp ailes nomination ultimately it's worth recalling that he will be advancing donald trump's view of the world not his own rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington. facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg faced more tough questions on the final day of testimony about the massive breach of users private data the thirty three year old billionaire apologized several times facebook has been in the spotlight off the personal information of eighty seven million users was harvested by political consultants in cambridge and. it's clear now that we didn't do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well and that goes for fake news foreign interference in elections and hate speech as well as developers and data privacy we didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake it was my mistake and i'm sorry i started
