Russian Federation may deploy its own troops in Syria to deter and reduce the number of targeting options the U.S. military would have to carry out any missile strike on the country, former Pentagon official Karen Kwiatkowski told Sputnik.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that he hopes "common sense" will prevail in an increasingly "chaotic" world.

"The situation in the world is becoming more and more chaotic. You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" he tweeted second thing in the morning after letting off steam against domestic "fake news" first thing in the morning.

In response, a former British commander of the Joint Forces Command, General Sir Richard Barrons, warned in an interview with BBC Radio 4's 'Today" program, "I hope the ambassador has chosen his words very carefully because what he's actually saying is, if the USA and allies decide to strike against Syrian chemical weapons and delivery aircraft, not only are they going to try and shoot down the missiles in flight - which they are capable of doing but won't be with total success - but by saying the words, "launch platforms' he's saying they are going to try and sink ships, sink submarines and shoot aircraft out of the sky".

Signalling that a US-led military attack is imminent, the president promised that the bombs "will be coming, nice and new and smart".

Tass quoted Zakharova as saying, "Smart missiles must strike terrorists, not the legitimate government that has been fighting worldwide terrorism on its territory for several years".

Earlier this day, the Russian Armed Forces General Staff announced the deployment of military police in the Syrian city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta, which suffered from a chemical attack.

A top adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei also appeared to respond to Trump's threats, telling state TV that Tehran would support Damascus against any "foreign aggression".

"Very calm and calculated with a big focus on open and fair trade with China, the coming North Korea meeting and, of course, the vicious gas attack in Syria", Trump tweeted early in the morning.

Syria has firmly denied any links to the attack, which reportedly killed at least 60 people and wounded more than 1,000 others. Another option - strike the locations where chemical weapons are stored.

The Syrian foreign ministry described the U.S. threats to attack it as "reckless", saying it would endanger worldwide peace and security.
