Donald Trump's show of strength, amid plans for a quick exit

"They will lose years of research and development data, specialized equipment and expensive chemical weapons precursors", he said.

This aggression will only lead to inflaming tensions in the world and threatens global security.

The United States' "work in Syria is not done", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Fox News Sunday.

President Donald Trump announced on Friday night that the USA, along with France and the United Kingdom, had launched strikes on Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack upon civilians by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

He says the U.S.is working a combined operation with the United Kingdom and France in a coordinated effort from the sea against numerous targets, including chemical weapons facilities.

Japan Finance Minister Taro Aso also welcomed the US' decision to explore the possibility of rejoining the CPTPP.

I have done so because I judge this action to be in Britain's national interest.

However, on Thursday afternoon, British Prime Minister Theresa May released a statement saying her government "agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime".

The target in Trump's sights on Monday evening, however, was not President Bashar al-Assad, whose gas attack last Saturday was the ostensible reason for the gathering of this war council. He described the main aim as establishing "a strong deterrent" against chemical weapons use.

Damascus skies erupt with surface to air missile fire as the United States launches an attack on Syria targeting different parts of the capital. A huge fire could be seen from a distance to the east.

In 2015 lawmakers approved United Kingdom strikes on Islamic State group targets in Syria, but not on government forces. President Donald Trump declaring he would bomb Syria.

The gas allegedly used in the Duma attack is chlorine. Syrian television reported that air defenses responded to the attack. "I don't think we can get back into the TPP soon enough", Johnson said when talking to reporters about the trip.

Speaking on a business panel at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, Pena Nieto said Mexico was opposed to protectionism and urged the United States to take advantage of a "window of opportunity" for rejoining the TPP.

Trump chastised Syria's two main allies, Russia and Iran, for their roles in supporting "murderous dictators", and noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin had guaranteed a 2013 worldwide agreement for Assad to get rid of all of his chemical weapons.

The missiles that targeted a military position in Homs were thwarted and diverted from their path, and injured three civilians, it added.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the strikes had been limited so far to Syria's chemical weapons facilities.

Russian Federation said it was likely to call for a meeting of the United Nations Security Council to discuss the strikes.

The NYPD said it is closely monitoring the situation in Syria.

On Thursday, after the president made clear he was nearing a decision, Ryan batted down suggestions that Trump should ask Congress to approve a military force authorization, or AUMF. Chinese tariff proposals run the agricultural gamut from hogs to soybeans and more ["Farmers who backed Trump fear becoming pawns in trade war", news, April 9].

According to Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, the US did not notify Russian forces in Syria ahead of the strikes. The UK and France joined the operation. Turkey is a US ally despite considering certain Kurdish groups in the region to be terrorists while the USA has backed those groups as a fighting force against ISIS.
