Russia, China and Iran warn against Syria strike
The US and its allies are considering launching strikes on Syria in response to deadly attacks last week.
The US said there was "undeniable" proof of a chemical attack, on Monday.
UN chemical weapons inspectors are due to start a second day of investigations in the suburbs of Damascus.
The UN team came under sniper fire as they tried to visit an area west of the city on Monday.
A spokesman for UK Prime Minister David Cameron says the UK is making contingency plans for military action in Syria.
Mr Cameron has cut short his holiday and returned to London to deal with the Syrian crisis.
Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich has called on the international community to show "prudence" over the crisis and observe international law.
"Attempts to bypass the Security Council, once again to create artificial groundless excuses for a military intervention in the region are fraught with new suffering in Syria and catastrophic consequences for other countries of the Middle East and North Africa," he said in a statement.
Meanwhile President Obama is weighing a military strike against Syria that would be of limited scope and duration, designed to serve as punishment for Syriaâ€™s use of chemical weapons and as a deterrent, while keeping the United States out of deeper involvement in that countryâ€™s civil war, according to senior administration officials.
The timing of such an attack, which would probably last no more than two days and involve sea-launched cruise missiles â€” or, possibly, long-range bombers â€” striking military targets not directly related to Syriaâ€™s chemical weapons arsenal, would be dependent on three factors: completion of an intelligence report assessing Syrian government culpability in last weekâ€™s alleged chemical attack; ongoing consultation with allies and Congress; and determination of a justification under international law.

This is definitely another Western False Flag attack. Assad committing this atrocity doesn't make sense but the UK, US, Israel and Saudi states committing it does as they have shown countless times before. In the document entitled 'Rebuilding America's Defences' written in 1997 it states that their goal was to invade 7 countries in 5 years. This goal has been delayed but the 7 countries detailed for attack and invasion were Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria and Iran. Looks like their goal is just about complete!

When I listen to these guys express their outrage and that they feel personally slighted and therefore are compelled to dive into the fray and punish somebody. This is only done to prevent any possibility of further involvement. By the expression on those guys faces look like they have a gun at their back. What does the NZA have on these guys. What do the subterranean people (Subs) think about all this? We must look like cannibals. Cannibal ants.
It is beginning to look like that Jim Carrey movie TRUMAN where he is the entertainment, while he is also the only one that doesn't know about all the cameras.
That has to be it. We must be the entertainment for the Subs.
That is our purpose in life. Mooo!!

Cameron, Obama, Hollande and any other warmonger will be tried for war-crimes, if they give the go ahead and are wrong.
Most news outlets now have the audacity to have the war plans already written and laid out.
They make me sick.
