Air strikes on Syria will not change course of war: UK's Johnson

Air strikes on Syria will not change course of war: UK's Johnson

With President Donald Trump declaring "mission accomplished" after allied airstrikes against Syria in retaliation for its use of chemical weapons, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday said the president was referring only to the narrow task on Friday.

Damascus skies erupt with service to air missile fire as the US launches an attack on Syria. -Russian agreement, President Assad of Syria was again using chemical weapons.

The French leader said the allies were forced to act without an explicit United Nations mandate because of the "constant stalemate of the Russians" in the Security Council.

"This was not geared towards weakening Assad's conventional military capabilities", said Kamran Bokhari, a senior fellow with the Center for Global Policy in Washington.

A perfectly executed strike last night. This shows that Syria's attackers are not united on intents and goal.

Putin's comments were published shortly after Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov struck a more conciliatory note by saying Moscow would make every effort to improve political relations with the West.

Al-Assad said the strikes would not deter his country and vowed to crush rebellion.

The attack "was a victory for Syria", former lawmaker Sharif Shehadeh said by phone from Damascus.

Eyewitnesses reported multiple government helicopters over Douma on April 7th, and said barrel bombs were dropped from those helicopters, the officials said. "Trump did it to save face".

The military strike was conducted to deter Assad's brutal behavior with its citizens and to give a message to Russian Federation and Iran, which have backed his government. They also called the attack an impediment to peace.

May in her statement called it a "limited and targeted strike".

In an article for The Sunday Telegraph, he said: "Unless we act there is a risk of moral contamination, a coarsening and corruption of what we have until now thought to be acceptable". The joint body was created in 2015 and found the Syrian government responsible for using sarin gas a year ago in Khan Shaykhoun, a rebel-held area in northern Syria.

Still, Trump warned in his televised address of a readiness to "sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", though he didn't specify what that meant.

Russian Federation has argued both that the attack in the Syrian city of Douma never happened or that it was orchestrated by the USA and its allies to provoke a military response.

"The worst apprehensions have come true".

University of Chicago political science professor Robert Pape doesn't think the airstrikes will make much difference and may put US troops at risk for retaliation.

The strikes appeared to have taken place far from Russia's bases near the Syrian coast. The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels that the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

By not destroying Mr. Assad's conventional, formidable war machine, Mr. Trump is giving the green light for the civil war to continue, with the Russians and Iranians given an O.K.to continue supporting Mr. Assad as well.

Ireland will not condemn the air strikes and Irish sources said there was no division within the European Union about the need to deter chemical attacks and that the Assad regime was involved in wholesale slaughter of its own people.

The OPCW declared that the Syrian government's chemical weapons stockpile had been removed in 2014, only to confirm later that sarin was used in a 2017 attack in the northern town of Khan Sheikhun. "Please be assured", Macron said in his interview, "we've convinced him that we had to stay on in the long term".

Russian Federation continues to defend Syria even in the face of evidence of prohibited chemical weapons use.

May will address Parliament - where she doesn't have a majority - next week.
