USA at UN Makes Case for Military Action Against Syria

"There has been no decision to take military action at this point".
According to the sources, the specific response being considered in the event of US military action against Syria is Japan's "support for the USA resolve to fulfill its responsibility to prevent the use of chemical weapons". The Syrian government has been known to use chlorine bombs, along with sarin, a nerve agent developed by Nazi Germany that was used in a 2013 attack that killed almost 1,500 people outside of Damascus.
He said that because the USA had no personnel at the site of the suspected chemical attack, it has no hard evidence of what happened, although he personally believed it was an "inexcusable" use of chemical weapons.

Opposition lawmakers have called on May to give Parliament a vote before committing British troops.
The statement made no reference to whether Parliament would be given a say on military action - prompting renewed concerns among opposition parties and some Tory MPs that Mrs May is prepared to go ahead without a Commons vote. May isn't legally required to do that, though it has become conventional since the 2003 invasion of Iraq for lawmakers to be given the chance to vote before British forces are deployed. The Downing Street statement did not mention parliament, and a spokeswoman did not comment on those reports.
Parliament voted down British military action against Assad's government in 2013, in an embarrassment for May's predecessor, David Cameron.
Some MPs have backed Britain acting against Syria, warning that the use of chemical weapons was in breach of global law and could not be allowed to go unpunished.
But they backed action in Iraq the following year, and again in Syria in 2015, strictly limiting strikes to Islamic State (IS) group targets.
