DUP backs Theresa May's decision to authorise air strikes in Syria

Oh what a lovely war! Thought of Syria strikes galvanizes breathless British media

'A strong and effective response from the west sends a clear message to the rest of the world, that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated'.

Prime Minister Theresa May during a press conference in 10 Downing Street, London on the air strikes against Syria.

"There is no graver decision for a prime minister than to commit our forces to combat and this is the first time I have had to do so", she said.

Meanwhile, Britain's main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn described the USA -led military strikes on Syria jointly staged by three leading Western countries as a "legally questionable action", saying that the British government should "not taking instructions from Washington".

Prime Minister Theresa May declined to say on Saturday whether Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should stay in power and said talks with allies would continue on finding a political solution to the civil war.

May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the Syrian government was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday.

However, May is facing questions over the legality of committing United Kingdom forces to any US -led attack on Syria.

Griffin Says Year Off Helped him Become Smarter
It just means that when I do run, I'll be smarter about it. "I'm here to get better every single day". Griffin specifically cited the need to do a better job of protecting himself outside the pocket.

"Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump", Corbyn said. It is about a limited and targeted strike that does not further escalate tensions in the region and that does everything possible to prevent civilian casualties. May was "taking instructions from Washington".

For his part, the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), Gerard Batten, opposed the British military action in Syria.

Syrian state-run TV said three civilians have been wounded in the missile attack on a military base in Homs. He warned that intervention would lead to a proxy war with Russian Federation which would be "not only risky to Britain, but the entire world".

Speaking to the press from Downing Street on Saturday morning, she described the joint action with the USA and France as "limited, targeted and effective" and insisted the aim was not to bring about regime change.

When asked if she believes the prime minister is "trailing" United States president Donald Trump in making the decision, as stated by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable, Cllr Jones added: 'The people who are saying that are naive and don't understand the complex relationship between the strongest members of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Under the UN Charter, the United Nations has the primary responsibility for maintaining worldwide peace and security. "These risks are a feature of modern confrontation".

"So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian Regime". "The [Syrian] opposition does not operate helicopters or use barrel bombs".
