'Mission accomplished': Trump defends boast to describe Syria strikes

N  AThe USS Farragut is one of the eight destroyers on its way to Syria

And so I think everyone is going to feel it at this point.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson defended the government's decision to join the U.S. and France in the airstrikes in Syria, arguing that lawmakers' approval was not sought due to the speed and the efficiency of the operation.

She also suggested that Russian Federation wasn't helpful in pursing worldwide diplomatic responses to the chemical attack, saying the 105 missiles launched by the U.S., France and the United Kingdom at three Syrian sites connected to the making and storing of chemical weapons "didn't have to happen".

The meeting followed missile strikes by the United States, France and Britain against Syrian government targets over a suspected poison gas attack a week ago.

"We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", Haley said.

The bombings, hailed by US President Donald Trump as a success but denounced by Damascus and its allies as an act of aggression, marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation, whose foreign minister Sergei Lavrov called them "unacceptable and lawless". Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past U.S. reprisals and is far easier to find and weaponise, experts say.

"We haven't said that we're going to bring them home in six months". "I can assure you that the president is watching". "He's a President. He's supposed to come to Congress to seek permission to initiate a war".

And she took snaps of her high school yearbooks (that we are very jealous was not a tradition when we were in school). The pictures were clicked during her trip to Turks and Caicos Islands, with her sister Kourtney Kardashian .

She also said she's not impressed with the reaction of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who expressed support for the strikes but seems reluctant to get directly involved.

Thousands of people in such area carried banners that described the aggression as a cowardly action, which aims at increasing the moral collapse of terrorist groups operating in Syrian territory. But we heard different things from the administration. Russian Federation and fellow pro-Syrian government ally Iran slammed the US-led airstrikes for taking place before the OPCW could conduct its probe.

A day after the bombardment, Assad appeared briefly on state TV and told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the USA and its allies were spreading "lies and misinformation" against Syria.

He said Russian Federation and Syria are united in trying "to protect global law based on respect of the sovereignty of countries and the wills of people". He also called for a "war powers act" that would force the British government to seek parliamentary approval for future military action.

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

And the Iranian leader called the strikes an "invasion" aimed at "emboldening defeated terrorists", according to the country's official IRNA news agency.
