Turkey presses for safe zone in Syria after U.S. missile attack

Washington has presented "no evidence whatsoever" yet that the Shayrat airfield in Syria's Homs Province targeted by the U.S. after an alleged chemical attack in Idlib had any such weapons, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The U.S. charged that the planes carrying the chemical weapons flew out of the Shayrat air base, where seven people were killed by the American missiles. " The military official said, reminding of then-US Secretary of State Colin Powell's white powder vial at the United Nations and other allegations of the chemical weapons "threat" in Iraq".

"The chemical attack in Idlib, and Russia's silence and attempts to defend the Syrian regime, was the drop that filled the glass", he said.

As for me, I am actually okay parting with the 30th pick for a player like Sherman who can still play at a very high level. I don't see a deal getting done, but if it doesn't, this is probably Sherman's past year in Seattle.
