President Trump Sparks Social Media Backlash With 'Mission Accomplished' Tweet

President Trump Sparks Social Media Backlash With 'Mission Accomplished' Tweet

But the Pentagon said the USA had "deconfliction" contacts with Russia before and after the strikes, that Syrian air defense systems had been largely ineffective, and there was no indication that Russian systems had been employed. The U.N. Safety Council met to debate the strikes, however rejected a Russian decision calling for condemnation of the "aggression" by the three Western allies.

Russian Federation had promised to respond to any attack on its ally and said on Saturday that Syrian air defenses had intercepted 71 of the 105 missiles fired.

The U.S. Department of Defense released video footage of tomahawk missiles being launched from a submarine in the Mediterranean Sea at targets in Syria as part of a "multi-national strike operation against the Syrian government".

And yet McKenzie did not rule out the possibility of future chemical weapons attacks by the Assad regime.

"A superbly executed strike", Trump tweeted after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched greater than 100 missiles practically unopposed by Syrian air defenses.

While the chemical weapons attack has put Syria fully on Trump's radar, experts say it's unlikely to persuade him to stay the course in Syria beyond defeating Islamic State.

Syria's President Bashar Assad welcomed a group of Russian politicians to Damascus on Sunday, following airstrikes carried out by the US, Britain and France the previous day.

The strikes "efficiently hit each goal", White instructed reporters on the Pentagon. In a USA army motion a 12 months in the past in response to a sarin gasoline assault, the Pentagon mentioned missiles took out practically 20 p.c of the Syrian air drive. "I can assure you we took every measure and precaution to strike only what we targeted and -- and we successfully hit every target", White told media.

The U.S. -led operation gained broad Western assist.

The Twittersphere piled on President Donald Trump after he tweeted Saturday that the US-led strikes on Syria "could not have had a better result". The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels that the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

Haley appeared on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation". That did not mean military strikes would continue. "I would say there's still a residual element of the Syrian programme that's out there", he said. The truth is, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Workers, mentioned no extra assaults had been deliberate. What occurs subsequent, she mentioned, is as much as Assad and to his Russian and Iranian allies.

Vice-President Mike Pence, in Peru for a meeting of regional leaders, said "there will be a price to pay" involving military force if Syrian chemical weapons are used again.

"Is there ANYONE in the White House with an understanding of history?" he asked.
