In Syria, Trump's Coalition Is The Cornerstone Of The West

In a USA military action a year ago in response to a sarin gas attack, the Pentagon said missiles took out almost 20 per cent of the Syrian air force.

President Donald Trump is reiterating his call to have other nations take on more of the burden in Syria.

Four Royal Air Force Tornado GR4s joined the co-ordinated missile strikes at 2am, launching Storm Shadow missiles at a base 15 miles west of Homs.

McKenzie described one site, the Barzah Research and Development Center, near Damascus, as a "core" facility for Syria's chemical weapons program.

Syria claims it intercepted western missiles.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff, said that none of the aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses, and there is no indication that Russian Federation air defense systems were employed.

"A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway", Trump said.

In comments posted on his Twitter feed, Harris said: "The use of chemical weapons can never be tolerated in the civilized world". The regime "slaughtered innocent civilians" in the recent attack, the president stated. U.S. officials called the drone a direct threat to the coalition, and it came hours after an attack by progovernment forces in the same area.

Defense Secretary James Mattis called the "atrocities inexcusable".

"This is how you want worldwide affairs to be conducted now?"

Haley emphasized that, "We are prepared to sustain this pressure", on Syria if they continue to use chemical weapons.

Speaking in Brussels, he told reporters: "Before the strikes took place last night, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies exhausted all other possible ways to address this issue through the UN Security Council by diplomatic and political means".

That sends a clear message, according the Syrian representative to the United Nations, that there is no interest in a "transparent investigation". And we need to think creatively about other ways to minimize the abilities of Russia, Iran and Assad to slaughter more Syrians - all without committing to occupy or rebuild the country. NY time, Agence-France Presse reported.

The United States has largely avoided wading directly into the seven-year Syrian war or confronting President Bashar Assad and his allies, except for coalition efforts to defeat the Islamic State.

The strikes have become the latest, and potentially most unsafe, flashpoint between the USA and Russian Federation, whose relations have appeared to deteriorate significantly in recent weeks, and have raised the specter of a proxy battle - or even outright conflict - between the two nuclear powers.

In his speech, Trump warned Russian Federation and Iran not to stand by their ally in Damascus.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, responded to the claims, saying Russian Federation was carrying out a "disinformation campaign" and the victims of chemical weapons attacks in Douma were not "fake news". "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

"Friday night's military action was created to thread a pretty narrow needle - place boundaries around the war Syria, Russia and Iran are waging - without becoming a direct combatant in it", wrote former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State PJ Crowley on the BBC website. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused her of "trailing after Donald Trump" and insisted that the prime minister should have sought parliamentary approval first. "We look forward to the day we can bring our warriors home", he said. "We can not purge the world of evil, or act everywhere there is tyranny".
