Russian Federation fails to win United Nations backing to condemn military strikes on Syria

N  ATrump is sending warships toward Syria

"I urge all Member States to show restraint in these unsafe circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate the situation and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people", he said.

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", she said.

Mrs Merkel said the strikes were needed "to maintain the effectiveness of the global rejection of chemical weapons use and to warn the Syrian regime against further violations".

Nikki Haley said: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

"[Treasury Secretary Steven] Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday if he hasn't already and they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

Most of the weapons rained down on the Barzah Research and Development Center, the "heart" of the chemical weapon program, located in the greater Damascus area. He accused the allies of violating the UN Charter and global law.

'Is the latest wave of chaos being unleashed only for the sake of that?' The one-night burst of ordnance appears unlikely to change the overall balance of forces in Syria seven years into its bloody civil war.

"Russia in the most serious way condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military servicemen help the legitimate government to fight terrorism", Mr Putin said in a statement on the Kremlin website.

Russian Federation calls an emergency session to discuss strikes on Syria
It was unlikely to get the minimum nine votes needed to force a veto by the United States, France or Britain, said diplomats. Russia, a key ally of the Assad government, is calling for an immediate UN Security Council meeting, he said.

Eight countries voted against the Russian-drafted text on Saturday, while Peru, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea abstained. He expressed concern about the potential for escalating the conflict by drawing Russian Federation and Iran into a deeper confrontation with the United States in a country where all three have forces on the ground. A resolution needs at least nine "yes" votes to be approved.

Russian Federation angrily accused Britain, France and the US, the three nations involved in the airstrikes - all permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - of committing a "military crime" and convened an emergency session of the Security Council, the fifth this week.

"We consider it possible to return to examination of this issue not only in regard to Syria but to other countries as well", Rudskoi said following the US-led airstrikes.

"When you shoot iron into the air without guidance, it is going to come down somewhere", McKenzie said.

He said all 29 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members backed the airstrikes as a outcome of the country conducting a suspected chemical attack against its civilians last weekend.

"The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons".

"I didn't think I could be shocked by a tweet anymore but "mission accomplished" was so surprising I had to double check that it was not a spoof", Sen.
