'Not About Regime Change': Theresa May Claims Syria Strikes are Successful and Legal

Syrian President Bashar Assad's government denies responsibility.

The strikes as conducted last night instill no fear nor uncertainty on the part of the Syrian regime. Could not have had a better result. "We call on Russian Federation to take a hard look at the company it keeps, and live up to its responsibilities as a Permanent Member of the Council and defend the actual principles the United Nations was meant to promote", she said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada supports the decision by the USA, the United Kingdom and France to bomb targets in Syria over the Assad regime's alleged use of chemical weapons. Al-Quadri, who is now in England working on a Master's degree, said she had hoped that this time, the United States would respond with more force to put more pressure on Assad.

Russian Federation circulated a draft resolution calling for condemnation of the military action. It said it was calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council. "It's a much more efficient weapon, unfortunately, the way the regime has been using it, and it's resulted in higher deaths, it resulted in bad pictures". Syrian state media called the attack a "flagrant violation of global law". Russia, Assad's strongest ally, has used its veto power as many as 12 times to block United Nations action against Syria.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley told an emergency Security Council meeting called by Russian Federation that she had spoken to President Donald Trump earlier about the military action in response to an alleged chemical attack a week ago.

Hundreds of pro-Assad supporters gathered in a Damascus square immediately after the attack to celebrate what they claimed was the successful shooting down of United States missiles.

Qatar was the first Gulf country to react.

But the war in Iraq raged on for more than eight years after Bush made the statement.

"The innocent Syrian people should have been defended long ago". It is about ISIS and deterring Assad's use of chemical weapons.

The US, France, and Britain announced a joint operation against Syria's government, a week after an alleged chemical attack outside the capital Damascus that was said to have left more than 40 people dead.

"Chemical weapons can not be used with impunity or become normalized".

Haley said the USA successfully hit the heart of Syria's chemical weapons enterprise, and because of these actions, it is confident that it has crippled Syria's chemical weapons programme.

"We will continue to work with our worldwide partners to further investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria".

A chorus of voices across the American political spectrum expressed support for Trump's latest strikes, but criticized the lack of a broader U.S. Syria strategy that could end the seven-year war - with or without Assad. It accused Damascus of "crimes against humanity". "The EU will stand with our allies on the side of justice", Mr Tusk said in a Twitter message.

Turkish Foreign Ministry in a statement welcomed the strikes as an appropriate response to the suspected chemical attack.
