Syrian air strikes an 'act of aggression', Vladimir Putin says

"If the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded", US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Saturday.

But Haley said the airstrikes accomplished their goal.

Trump launched a military strike against the Syrian regime almost one year ago targeting a government airbase also in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed civilians. Angus King (I-ME) said: "I think it's impossible to say at this point that the mission has been accomplished". U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that "right now, this is a one-time shot and I believe it has sent a very strong message to dissuade him, to deter him".

Haley told Fox News, "If Assad doesn't get it" after Saturday's barrage of 105 missiles fired by the U.S., Britain and France at three Syrian chemical weapons facilities, "it's going to hurt".

Russian Federation also decried the US -led operation as a failure, saying the majority of the rockets fired at Syria were intercepted by the Syrian government's air defense systems.

"We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", Haley said. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

It suggested believers pray thus: "Lord, we pray for peace and your protection over the men, women and children of Syria. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad", Trump tweeted.

"A week has gone by in which we have talked". "This was not muscle flexing".

"I just want to tell Mr. Trump directly: I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks, who lived under two years of siege and bombardment by the government", Eid said.

Haley backed President Donald Trump's "mission accomplished" statement about the strikes, saying the Syrian facilities that were targeted sent a "pretty strong message" to both Syria and Russian Federation.

Last month, he shocked aides when during a speech about infrastructure in OH, he announced that USA troops would be leaving Syria "very soon". But they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of U.S. missiles previous year.

Among the contentious proposals, it would establish an independent investigation into allegations of toxic gas attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators.On the humanitarian side, the measure demands medical evacuations and safe passage for aid convoys to be allowed to all areas.Diplomats said it remained unclear when the council would vote on the proposal, and they were ready to allow time for negotiations to bring Russian Federation aboard.Just before dawn on Saturday, the sounds of massive explosions and the roar of warplanes rang out across Damascus for about 45 minutes.

On Sunday, French President Emmanuel Macron took credit for convincing Trump to change his mind about pulling out of Syria.

"We, of course, know that our work in Syria is not done", Haley said on "Fox News Sunday" with host Chris Wallace.

A "number of missiles" targeted a scientific research center in Barzeh, near Damascus, and destroyed a building housing an education center and labs and caused other damage, the military said.

Sen. Tim Kaine, also appearing on "Face the Nation", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress. "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", he added, an apparent reference to Trump's mention of President Vladimir Putin in his speech.

"There is still a residual element of the Syrian program that is out there", McKenzie said. Corbyn said. "The legal basis. would have to be self defense or the authority of the UN Security Council".

"It's reckless because as you pointed out there isn't a strategy", Kaine added. We have asked our partners to take greater responsibility for securing their home region, including contributing large amounts of money for the resources, equipment, and all of the anti-Isis effort. But the description from an ally put things differently.

Expected key subjects of conversation at the summit include perceived Iranian meddling in Arab affairs, such as in the civil war in Yemen and in supporting Shiite fights in Iraq.
