Blood Samples Show Nerve Agent, Chlorine Used in Syria Attack

US found chlorine gas, nerve agent in samples from Syria attack: report
Syria warned that it will have "no other choice" but to defend itself if the West launches military action.
Mattis said he personally believes Syria is guilty of an "inexcusable" use of chemical weapons, while noting that the global fact-finding team would likely fall short of determining who was responsible.
Al-Jaafari was quoted by SANA news agency as saying that the Syrian government was ready to facilitate the teams' entry into any point in Douma, Eastern Ghouta's largest town.
Moisi stressed the "risk of escalation" of the conflict amid increasing concerns about a U.S. -Russia proxy war.
The U.S. has obtained blood and urine samples from a suspected chemical attack in Syria that have tested positive for both an unidentified nerve agent and chlorine gas exposure, according to a report published Thursday.
US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the United Nations today that no decision had been taken about military action against Syria, but use of force would be in response to multiple chemical attacks carried out by President Bashar al-Assad's forces.
In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May summoned her Cabinet back from vacation Thursday to discuss military action against Syria.
Videos and photos from the site of the attack, along with witness testimony contradicted that, and on Thursday, the US reportedly received physical evidence.
Later, May's office said she had spoken with Trump by telephone, and the two had agreed it was vital to challenge Assad's use of chemical weapons, and that they would continue to work closely together to do so.
Trump has claimed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's administration has used chemical weapons. 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 country often has restricted itself to supporting roles, such as the participation of reconnaissance jets in the global campaign against the Islamic State group.
Parliament voted down British military action against Assad's government in 2013, in an embarrassment for May's predecessor, David Cameron. A YouGov poll showed just one in five members of the public support a strike on Syria.
The leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, also speaking earlier on Wednesday, said parliament should be given a say on any military action May wants to take.
"Cabinet agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons...
But on a strategic level, it's how do we keep this from escalating out of control - if you get my drift on that", Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee Thursday morning.
