The right response: Trump takes appropriate action to thwart atrocities in Syria

US President Donald Trump ordered the missile strike after watching television images of infants suffering from chemical weapons injuries.

And other members are keen to establish clarity over the U.S.'s position on Assad's regime, ahead of a visit to Russian Federation by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday.

H.R. McMaster says there is no contradiction between comments by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who says IS must be defeated first, and Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations who contends that getting Assad out is a priority.

The Russian government has denied that Syria carried out a chemical attack, saying that civilians on the ground were poisoned after Syrian planes struck a depot producing chemical weapons for rebels.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the no. 2 Republican in the Senate, praised Trump's initial missile strike for sending a message to Assad, Russia, Iran and North Korea that "there's a new administration in charge". "From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well", officials from Russia, Iran and pro-Assad militias said in a statement on Sunday. "And we're not going to allow things like this to happen to innocent people, '" the former SC governor explained.

Sen. Lindsay Graham is calling for as many as 6,000 more US troops to fight the Islamic State group.

McMaster said Russian leaders were supporting "a murderous regime" and their actions would dictate the future of U.S. "And saying we are only going after chemical weapons areas ignores the enormity of the problem".

Iran FM criticizes 'worn-out' USA nuclear accusations
But Rex Tillerson has come pretty close to saying the agreement is not worth keeping, even though he's had to admit it's working. In the redesign, the heavy water reactor will be reconfigured so it can not yield fissile plutonium usable in a nuclear bomb.

Speaking to Jake Tapper, the host of the State of the Union show, on Sunday, the USA official said that the issue of the new sanctions is already being discussed.

"I think the president has authorization to use force", he said. Just days prior, the regime used the airbase to launch a chemical weapons attack on a nearby rebel-held city.

"Both sides noted the inadmissibility of aggressive US actions against a sovereign state in violation of worldwide law", the statement said.

Syrian army forces had been losing ground across the country until Russian Federation intervened militarily in September 2015, propping up Mr Assad and protecting its own interests in the region.

"There is no political solution any of us can see with Assad in the lead", Haley said.

Lindsey Graham said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's decision to launch warplanes from Shayrat Airfield just hours after it was bombed by USA cruise missiles was a "huge mistake".

McMaster, Cornyn and Cardin spoke on "Fox News Sunday", Tillerson appeared on ABC's "This Week" and CBS' "Face the Nation", Haley and Graham were on NBC's "Meet the Press" and Haley also appeared on CNN's "State of the Union".
