BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – British Prime Minister Theresa May was not full sold on attacking Syria, despite initial reports that she was ready to join the coalition of countries to launch an attack on Syria.
According to a report by the Times on Wednesday, May told Trump that she would not risk pounding Syria with missiles until she sees more compelling proof of Damascus’s culpability in the incident on April 7.
During a phone conversation on Tuesday, the leaders of the United States, the United Kingdom, and France agreed that “the international community needed to respond” to the chemical incident in Syria’s Douma.
While Britain and France have not necessarily dismissed the idea of an attack against the Syrian government, it appears that the U.S. President is the only one not willing to wait for more proof.
Trump stated on Monday that the Syrian government was going to “pay a big price” for their alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma; however, no date was set for an attack.
