Chemical inspectors to begin work in Syria's Douma

Chemical inspectors to begin work in Syria's Douma

The UN Security Council was set to meet at Moscow's request later on Saturday over the operation, which was unleashed by the U.S., Britain and France in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack on the rebel-held town of Douma.

He said: "So far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish to launch another chemical weapons attack", adding that Britain and its allies "would study what the options were" in the event of another attack.

"I think it is very hard to say mission accomplished if the mission is to deter the use of chemical weapons", Sen. Many denounced U.S. President Donald Trump and also waved flags of Syria's allies, Iran and Russian Federation, as they cheered Assad.

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

The Pentagon said more than 40 Syrian surface-to-air missiles had "no material effect" on the allied strikes, which McKenzie said hit their targets.

"This was very strong attack on the chemical weapons program".

"Americans need to understand that the wars of the future will look more like this: Russian Federation is investing significant resources to create propaganda and disinformation", Sen.

"These are big things the president's been focused on", Sanders said. "We have not denied the team any request for it to go to Douma", said United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric. "This was not muscle flexing".

Haley said Assad was making the use of chemical weapons "more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop". "Our job was never to start a war". President Donald Trump "enforces" the red line and the U.S. will sustain the pressure on the war-torn nation, she said. "We've spent a week talking about the unique horror of chemical weapons".

Syrian-American, Suzan Boulad is one of few with firsthand knowledge of the now seven-year long civil war in Syria. "Not through unilaterally just going in and bombing them just because we feel like it or because Trump wants to increase his popularity", he said.

What he isn't surprised by is the outpouring of support the hockey world and the nation have responded with. Here in the Kootenays, like hockey communities across Canada, this tragedy affects everyone.

Theresa May, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron hailed the launch of 105 missiles against the regime as a "success" with the US President announcing "mission accomplished" hours after the barrage.

Seeking to tamp down the global tensions that soared after Trump's tweet last week that missiles are "coming, nice and new and smart", the United States and its allies stressed the limited nature of their goals.

Vladimir Putin branded the attack as illegal, saying U.S. aggression had deepened Syria's humanitarian crisis and dealt a destructive blow to the whole system of worldwide relations. "I assure you, we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long-term". It appears, however, that weakening Assad is not the main preoccupation of the nations that launched the air strikes.

"Engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution", they said. Yet leaders like President Trump continue to use the method. "He's a President. He's supposed to come to Congress to seek permission to initiate a war".

"It's illegal because he didn't come and ask permission", he said.

The US said it suspected sarin gas also was used. Are we staying there now to topple Assad, to counter Iran, to check Russian Federation, to help the Kurds, to buttress Israel, to rebuild our relationships with Turkey?

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has opposed British military action throughout his career, described the Syrian attack as "legally questionable". "It should be taken as part of a strategy".

The formal notification to Congress complies with a 1973 congressional resolution requiring the president to disclose when he has committed USA troops to military action.

Russian Federation vetoed a year ago the extension of the mandate of another joint U.N. -OPCW joint body in charge of determining who was behind other chemical attacks in Syria.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Iranian counterpart Hasan Rouhani on Sunday spoke over the phone and discussed the USA -led airstrikes on Syria, the Kremlin said.
