Russian Trolls Increased '2000 Percent' After Syria Attack, Pentagon Says

She said: "I spoke to the president this morning and he said, "if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded".

"These limited strikes may serve to deter future chemical weapons use, but assuming they don't trigger escalation or a retaliation, they won't dramatically alter the course of the conflict", Emma Beals, a Beirut-based expert who has been monitoring the war in Syria, said on Twitter.

Haley gave Russian Federation a stern warning about the Syrian regime's future use of chemical weapons, a warning she said came directly from President Donald Trump.

Syrian state media accused Western powers of trying to hinder the investigation with their attack. President Donald Trump "enforces" the red line and the United States will sustain the pressure on the war-torn nation, she said.

"We will not stand by passively while Assad, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, ignores worldwide law", White said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has backed the air strikes as a "necessary and appropriate" action to warn Syria against further use of chemical weapons. USA officials said no one was hurt there.

"A perfectly executed strike last night".

China, Japan resume financial talks after 8-year hiatus
The Japan-China Excessive-Stage Financial Dialogue was being held Monday in Tokyo for the primary time since August 2010.

May 18, 2017: A United States airstrike hits pro-Syrian government forces that the coalition said posed a threat to American troops and allied rebels operating near the border with Jordan in southern Syria.

He criticized Washington and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the global chemical-weapons watchdog group to visit the area.

Images from the satellite imagery company DigitalGlobe now appear to show at least two of these three sites - the Barzeh Research and Development Center and the Him Shinshar chemical weapons storage complex - before and after the strikes.

The three sites targeted were "fundamental components" to Syria's chemical weapons program, according to Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie.

Mattis described them as a "one-time shot" to send a strong message to Assad not to use chemical weapons again.

"None of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses, and we have no indication that Russian air defense systems were deployed", McKenzie said. "This was not about interfering in a civil war and it was not about regime change".
