US destroyers, subs, jets could answer Trump's Syria strike cal

Trump softens rhetoric on potential Syria strike


In an early morning tweet and later in comments at the White House, Trump attempted to cloud the timing of military action — a day after indicating it was imminent — and said a final decision had not yet been made.

“Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all!,” the President tweeted. Trump notably did not rule out plans to attack Syria in retaliation for the weekend’s suspected chemical attack on civilians at the hands of the Assad regime.

The President, however, did not specifically refer to the attack’s timing in his Wednesday tweet, though he warned Russia to “get ready.” In Thursday’s tweet, Trump also suggested he did not get enough credit for US gains against ISIS in the region, asking, “Where is our ‘Thank you America?'”

Speaking to reporters at the White House later in the day, Trump said a decision had not yet been made on a course of action.

“We’re looking very, very seriously, very closely, at that whole situation,” the President said during a meeting with farm state lawmakers. “We have to make some further decisions. So they’ll be made fairly soon.”

Secretary of Defense James Mattis echoed the President when he told lawmakers Thursday, “We have not yet made any decision to launch military attacks into Syria.”

The President will meet with his national security team at the White House on Thursday for further discussions on the US response.

Trump on Wednesday vowed to thwart Russia’s missile defense system in Syria, warning that rockets “will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart.'” In tweeting about a potential attack, Trump appeared to publicly telegraph military plans — something for which he heavily criticized former President Barack Obama back in 2013.

Mattis said Wednesday that the US is “still assessing the intelligence” on whether the Assad regime is to blame for the recent suspected chemical attack. Russia has blamed Syrian opposition forces for the attack.

Trump has consulted with US allies, particularly France and the United Kingdom, about a coordinated response to the suspected chemical attack, but officials say they have not reached a firm agreement on scale or timing. The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, was convening a meeting of her Cabinet on Thursday afternoon, at which she is expected to make the case for supporting the US in any military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova warned against a missile strike, writing on Facebook Wednesday that it could destroy evidence on the ground and interrupt the work of international investigators.

“Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not the legal government that has been fighting international terrorism for several years on its territory,” Zakharova wrote in response to Trump’s Wednesday tweet.

Should the President follow through on his warnings of an attack, two US Navy destroyers armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles are in position and ready to be called into action, among other assets including jets and submarines.

Behind 8-year-old Asifa’s Rape And Murder, Story Of A Divided Village


Behind 8-year-old Asifa's Rape And Murder, Story Of A Divided Village

Click to Play

The house where Asifa lived is now locked. Nobody knows where the family has gone

Kathua:  It takes a half hour uphill trek from the nearest road — through dense forests — to reach Rasana village in Kathua, the home of eight-year-old Asifa, who was brutally raped and murdered earlier this year.

The only house in the middle of a jungle, is now locked. Nobody seems to know where the family that belongs to a nomadic Muslim tribe has gone.

Asifa’s uncle Mohammad Jan, who lives a kilometre away, says land is the root cause of the dispute between the four Muslim families living in a Hindu-dominated area. The acrimony peaked last year when the Hindus demanded the return of over one acre of land sold to the Muslims. When that did not happen, they didn’t allow the burial of Asifa’s body in the local graveyard, he says.

“When the body of Asifa was brought here for burial, people from the village attacked us. They said they will not allow us to bury her here, else they will take back the land,” said Mohammad Jan.

The Jammu and Kashmir crime branch that probed the rape and murder case says the motive was to hound the Muslim nomads out.

Little Asifa was kidnapped, raped and brutally killed in January this year. 

The investigating agency says Asifa was kept at Devsthan or a place of worship at Rasana village, drugged and finally raped and murdered. Her body was dumped in a nearby forest.

There is a strong sentiment for a CBI inquiry in Kathua.

“If there is no CBI inquiry, we will block the highway and the railway tracks,” said a Kathua resident.

On the Jammu-Pathankot highway, the family members of the eight accused are sitting on a dharna for the last 13 days.

The daughter of Sanjhi Ram, who the crime branch claims is the mastermind, said the probe had been botched up.

“We are sitting on a dharna, our demand is a CBI inquiry. Those in the crime branch who did the probe are themselves rapists and murderers,” alleged Madhu.

In Jammu, the Bar association claims the probe by the crime branch investigation was unfair.

“We have always vouched for a fair trial and strict punishment. A probe by the crime branch is a manifestation of the Kashmir-centric mindset, an attempt to divide Jammu and Kashmir,” said BS Salathia, President of the Jammu Bar Association.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who met the union home minister in Delhi yesterday has tweeted, saying her government will come up with a tough law to deal with those who rape minors.

Calling it a crime whose “brutal savagery has shamed humanity”, Ms Mufti assured  people that she stands committed to ensuring justice for Asifa and seeking exemplary punishment for the guilty.

Malawi cholera outbreak kills 30

Malawi cholera outbreak kills 30


Story highlights

  • At least 30 people have died and 893 are thought to be infected
  • “The main challenge and source of this outbreak is the use of contaminated water in the affected areas and poor food hygiene,” official says
  • Malawi has been facing a cholera outbreak since late 2017

The disease outbreak which began last November in Karonga, northern Malawi has spread to 13 districts in the country, a spokesman for the ministry, Joshua Malango told CNN.

The drinking of contaminated water and poor food hygiene practices in affected areas have been blamed for the cholera outbreak, the ministry said.

Malango told CNN that heads of affected districts have banned the sale of cooked food in market places in an attempt to stop the spread of the disease in the country.

“Prepared food in markets have been banned by our district councils now,” Malango told CNN.

“The main challenge and source of this outbreak is the use of contaminated water in the affected areas and poor food hygiene,” he added.

The United Nations agency for children, UNICEF, said it’s working with Malawian government and other international organizations to provide medical supplies and equipment for treatment of patients in affected communities.

Cholera is an acute diarrheal illness that kills thousands of people worldwide each year.

The disease is rare in industrialized nations but it occurs frequently in many countries in parts of Africa, especially in areas with poor or inadequate water treatment, sanitation and hygiene practices.

According to the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the disease is contracted by consuming food or water contaminated with the fecal bacteria Vibrio cholerae.
