Trump Attacks Syria With Chemical Experts on the Way

After the attack ceased and the early morning skies went dark once more, vehicles with loudspeakers roamed the streets of Damascus blaring nationalist songs.

"So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime", May said.

Nasr al-Hariri, a senior opposition leader, said the worldwide community must take responsibility for any retaliation by the Syrian government against civilians in opposition areas.

Moscow denied its ally Assad had any role in the outrage, pushing a variety of alternative theories that peaked with a claim that Britain had staged the event.

We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or anywhere else in our world. He is not giving details about what equipment is involved in the operation or what sites it is targeting.

Amnesty International warned that the strikes should minimise harm to civilians and urged President Trump to take in Syrian refugees.

USA military analysts say the US wanted to avoid hitting Russian targets, but once unleashed, military action can lead to unintended consequences. He added in a statement, "We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences".

And Syria's civil war is still a human tragedy that has baffled successive USA presidents.

In Damascus, "hundreds of residents began gathering in the landmark Omayyad square of the Syrian capital".

"The Assad regime's use of chemical weapons that led to the murder of dozens of Syrians - many of them children - is barbaric and a clear violation of global law", said Heller.

In his speech, which lasted just under 10 minutes, he also posed a question to Iran and Russia, "What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of women and children?"

Travel is not recommended as conditions will range from very unsafe to impossible with downed tree branches are possible, too. The State Patrol counted 320 crashes and 442 vehicle spin-outs statewide between midnight Friday and 4:15 p.m.

The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep. "The risk of escalation with any military action in a country in which Russia, Iran and Turkey have deployed troops and proxies is far too great to leave to any executive acting on their own".

Trump is betting that periodic shows of American force - in the form of missiles and fighter jets - can convince Assad and his backers not to use chemical weapons again.

Parly said cruise missiles were fired and an air raid was launched from multiple air bases in France, the AP reported.

So today, the nations of Britain, France, and the United States of America have marshaled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality.

"The United States is locked and loaded", she said.

Trump also called out Russia's promise in 2013 that they would guarantee the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons.

Trump's top national security aides in the days that followed talked him into a 4-6 month withdrawal plan.

After the strike against Syria in 2017 some lawmakers said that under that document, the Authorization for the Use of Military Force, or AUMF, the president had the authority to launch a limited strike without going to Congress.

President Donald Trump on Saturday (Syria time) ordered air strikes against Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack last weekend outside Damascus.

President Trump ordered airstrikes on Syria as a team of experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was about to arrive on Saturday to determine whether a chemical weapons attack had even occurred, Joe Lauria reports.

I also have a message tonight for the two governments most responsible for supporting, equipping, and financing the criminal Assad regime. He said the agreement would "undermine" the US economy and its independence and said it was a potential "disaster".
