Trump Announces Joint Military Strike On Syria

Justifying the decision to mount air strikes against Syria the three governments laid out evidence that the regime had used chemical weapons in the attack earlier this month, which opposition activists, rescue workers and medics say killed more than 40 civilians.

"By its actions, the United States is increasingly aggravating the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria, bringing sufferings to civilians and actually conniving at terrorists who have been tormenting the Syrian people for seven years and provoking a new wave of refugees from that country and the region as a whole", it said.

Chemical weapons experts for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) arrived in Syria to investigate the suspected poison gas attack.

Russian Federation continues to defend Syria even in the face of evidence of prohibited chemical weapons use.

The West's assessments of what happened April 7 in Douma rely mainly on open source information. Photos of barrel bombs dropped in Douma closely match those used previously by the regime.

"We assess that this was the primary location of Syrian sarin and precursor production equipment", General Dunford said.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the strikes were "a calibrated, proportionate and targeted response". "There's no point in keeping a dictator killing his own people for seven years, forcibly displacing them, demographically changing the country, creating the worst refugee crisis since World War II".

The official did not elaborate on what that information entailed. "This is not about intervening in a civil war".

The head of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, predicted: "This will reduce the regime's ability to further attack the people of Syria with chemical weapons".

"There is still a residual element of the Syrian program that is out there", he said, adding: "I'm not going to say they're going to be unable to continue to conduct a chemical attack in the future".

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss specifics beyond those contained in the formal statements.

"They are unique threat, a type of weapon so evil that the worldwide community agreed they must be banned". The Russian foreign ministry, however, accused the allies of acting when they did "to hamper the work of the OPCW inspectors". He said at least one chemical was used - chlorine, which has legitimate industrial uses and had not previously triggered a US military response.

While American President Donald Trump has called Friday's airstrikes against the Syrian military a success, members of that country's diaspora are calling the lack of follow-up a disappointment.

By August 2014, the chemical weapons previously turned over by Syria had been destroyed. Syria is widely suspected of hiding some stocks, manufacturing more as well as holding on to chlorine.

"The pictures of dead children were not fake news".

Nikki Haley, the US's ambassador to the United Nations, said the USA would be "locked and loaded" if Assad used chemical weapons again.

After failing to talk the U.S. out of bombing targets in Syria, Russia responded to Friday's strikes by saying they "threatened" Russia and warning of "consequences". Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, speaking at an emergency Security Council meeting called by Russian Federation, said President Trump had drawn a "red line" on the use of chemical weapons which "he would always keep".
