Syrian Chemical Weapons Sites Before And After Missile Strikes

"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad", said President Donald Trump, in an address Friday night, on April 13.

The decision to strike, after days of deliberations, marked Trump's second order to attack Syria.

In fact, since Assad and others were led to believe that this would be a much bigger and more consequential attack than it was, especially by President Trump's own rhetoric, the very conscribed nature of the actual strikes might actually embolden the Syrian leader to use his remaining chemical weapons more frequently and with less restraint. "The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue using chemical weapons".

"The United States estimates that Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times".

"But", Eid added. "that happiness and joy soon vanished as soon as Gen. [James] Mattis started talking about this being a one-strike and how they only care about sending a message to Asaad to stop using chemical weapons". It was the first such close confrontation between USA forces and fighters backing Assad.

The White House said the leaders agreed the air strikes in Syria "were successful and necessary to deter" the future use of chemical weapons. That attack, [Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White says], hit a Syrian military air base and was meant to focus on Syria's ability to deliver chemical weapons.

The U.N. Security Council rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of the "aggression" by the United States and its allies against Syria on April 14.

Western powers claim their missile attacks struck at the heart of Syria's chemical weapons program but what they destroyed included a scientific research institution producing cancer drugs.

"If there were chemical weapons in the building, we would not be here".

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.

The Pentagon said the strike was created to degrade Syria's chemical weapons capability without killing civilians or foreign fighters. Continuing to enforce the chemical weapons red line can give Washington some much needed leverage in political negotiations in Geneva which to date have only been a cover for Assad, Putin and Khamenei to shoot and gas the Syrian people into submission. "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons used by that very bad regime".

All three allies fired 22 weapons at the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site just west of Homs, and the us military launched seven missiles at the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Bunker, McKenzie said. "This was not about interfering in a civil war and it was not about regime change".
