Gold spikes after Trump warns Russian Federation to 'Get ready'

The President, however, has also called for good relations with Russian Federation, saying recently it "would be a good thing, not a bad thing", to get along with Russian Federation and that "just about everybody agrees to that, except very stupid people, OK?"

"I think we have to respond militarily", Crocker said on Morning Edition. Instead, it cited reports that 70 people who were sheltering in basements were killed, with 43 of the deaths "related to symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals".

The fallout from biting new U.S. sanctions on Moscow continued to rattle investors and fears of military action were stoked again after one of Russia's ambassadors reiterated it would shoot down any United States missiles fired at Syria. "Russian Federation needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together", he said Monday on Twitter. The threat applies not only to the missiles, but to their launch sites, she says. "Stop the arms race?", Trump said on Wednesday (April 11). He also said a clash "should be ruled out and therefore we are ready to hold negotiations".

British banks that deal with the Russian oligarchs and companies on a new American sanctions list will face "consequences", according to a senior U.S. Treasury official. I would hope that it's true that the administration is in contact with the French and other allies, so it becomes not just a USA strike, but a coalition strike, if you will. "We continue to believe that it is important not to take steps that could harm an already fragile situation". "Unfortunately, Russia has chosen the Assad regime again over the unity of this council", Haley said. Russian Federation is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's most powerful ally.

The U.S. Federal Reserve is anxious about trade tensions with China, but minutes from the most recent Fed meeting suggest those concerns have not translated into worry about the overall economy - or a more complacent monetary policy.

Talking about Russia's countermeasures, Medvedev said that possible targets could be USA securities as well as "a series of other goods which are supplied to our market or are produced by US businesses on the territory of our country".

The Eurocontrol airspace organization said that the European Aviation Safety Agency had sent a "Rapid Alert Notification" that flight operations needed to consider the possibility of air or missile strikes into Syria.

Doctors have said the symptoms presented by suspected victims of the attack are consistent with chlorine gas.
