After the Syria Strike, a Strategy

US destroyer launching cruise missile at Syria

President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his use of the phrase "Mission Accomplished" to describe a US -led missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program, even as his aides stressed continuing USA troop involvement and plans for new economic sanctions against Russian Federation for enabling the regime of Bashar Assad.

Haley later told CBS that sanctions would be announced, likely on Monday, against Russian companies supplying the Syrian regime.

The strikes "successfully hit every target", said Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman.

A Syrian firefighter is seen inside the destroyed Scientific Research Centre in Damascus, Syria April 14, 2018. The images reveal crushing damage to structures at the target site.

But until this weekend, they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of United States missiles a year ago.

· While the French government said it had no samples of the chemical weapons it believes were used, it released its own assessment based on publically available information that concluded only the Syrian armed forces could have been behind the attack.

He also said he convinced his United States ally in the strikes, Donald Trump, to limit the targets to chemical weapons sites and for the USA to "stay in Syria in the long term".

The battle inside the Security Council came as US President Donald Trump struck a triumphant tone in the wake of the strikes, on Saturday tweeting: "Mission Accomplished!"

"A perfectly executed strike last night", Trump tweeted on Saturday morning. Could not have had a better result.

The U.S., France and the United Kingdom launched airstrikes late Friday in response to the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons near the capital city of Damascus a week earlier.

With Russian involvement in Syria and Moscow condemning Saturday's allied missile strike, Haley acknowledged that U.S.

"I would say there's still a residual element", he said.

Western missile attack on Syria was 'right and legal', May says
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said that four RAF Tornado jets were deployed to launch missiles at a Syrian military facility. Also that it is not about a wider intervention in the Syrian civil war which would, in our view, be counter productive.

"I suspect he continues to brutally defeat the rebels and the people living in rebel areas and reasserts control over Syria", Piazza said. "These fearless believers returned to their homes to be a light and many of them live in Homs and Damascus-near the targeted strikes", the statement explained.

· British Prime Minister May cited reports that said the Syrian government had used barrel bombs to deliver the chemical weapons.

"This very easily could happen in the United States if we're not smart, and if we're not conscious of what's happening", Haley said on "Fox News Sunday."

"It is in our national interest to prevent the further use of chemical weapons in Syria - and to uphold and defend the global consensus that these weapons should not be used".

"These are big things the president's been focused on", Sanders said. "We have had many conversations with our allies and partners around the world to bring this horrendous plight to the attention of the world".

· The three nations reportedly fired around 100 missiles. The U.S., he said, didn't want to oust Assad because he was a dictator - most U.S. allies in the region are led by dictators. "We were not looking to kill people", she said.

British Tornado and Typhoon warplanes and French Rafale jets also took part in the strikes.

A pair of U.S. Air Force B-1 bombers flying from Qatar under fighter escort launched 19 stand-off missiles.

Russian Army Colonel Gen. Sergey Rudskoy put a number to the claim, telling reporters that 71 of the cruise missiles were intercepted by Syria's air defense systems.

The United States cooled expectations of an early pull out of 2,000 troops from Syria saying they would remain until key strategic goals were secured.

"There is still a residual element of the Syrian program that is out there", McKenzie said. "So they had no material impact on the strike".
