President Trump tweets about Syria strikes: 'Mission Accomplished!'

Syria Damascus air strikes

Some protesters like David Mandel liken USA involvement in Syria to the Iraq and Vietnam wars.

Dozens chanted and held signs to demonstrate their disappointment in President Trump's decision to use military force in Syria without first letting worldwide organizations confirm the chemical attacks.

A Russian bid for the United Nations Security Council to condemn US, British and French air strikes on Syria over a suspected chemical weapons attack failed on Saturday after only China and Bolivia joined Russia to vote in favour of a draft resolution. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military.

He also suggested if he was president he would "let them all fight with each other - focus on USA!" "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons used by that very awful regime".

The aim, she said, is "to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things".

He added, "I know a tremendous amount of people didn't fully appreciate what I was communicating". Bevin posted a video to his Twitter account Sunday in an effort to explain his comments.

"These limited strikes may serve to deter future chemical weapons use, but assuming they don't trigger escalation or a retaliation, they won't dramatically alter the course of the conflict", Emma Beals, a Beirut-based expert who has been monitoring the war in Syria, said on Twitter.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has backed the air strikes as a "necessary and appropriate" action to warn Syria against further use of chemical weapons.

Ahead of the latest strikes, Haley signalled in the Security Council on Friday that any action by Washington would not be in response to just the attack in Douma.

The U.S., Britain and France said they launched airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining evidence that poisonous gas was used last weekend on the Damascus suburb of Douma by President Bashar Assad's government.

"If anything, the opposite is true: By setting these red lines and devising very narrow punishments for violating them, we essentially communicate to the regime what our priorities are and also our threshold for risk and level of interest in the broader Syrian war", Itani said.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says the USA -led airstrikes against Syria has been "a very serious blow".

On Saturday, McKenzie said the three allies' ships and aircraft in the Red Sea, northern Arabian Gulf and the eastern Mediterranean launched 105 missiles and hit all of their targets at around 4 a.m.

She wrote: "Syria's use of chemical weapons is sickening but the question the PM has not answered is how this action, taken without parliamentary approval, will halt their use or bring long-term peace".

On Saturday, she hinted the United States would strike again if Assad used chlorine, but stopped short of specifying which chemical agent she was referring to.

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, hours before the Western missile strikes.
