Enough is enough: Boris Johnson leads media charge on Syria strikes

Enough is enough: Boris Johnson leads media charge on Syria strikes

It came in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack on the rebel-held city of Douma a week earlier which claimed the lives of 75 people, including young children.

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said there were now no plans for further attacks in Syria after Britain and its allies France and the United States launched air strikes on the regime's chemical weapons facilities. Right for the United Kingdom and right for the World.

"I'm afraid that is the unhappy corollary of this that if we say we're limiting our action to chemical weapons. then of course it follows that the rest of the Syrian war must proceed as it will", Johnson told BBC television.

"There's one overwhelming reason why this was the right thing to do and that is to deter the use of chemical weapons, not just by the Assad regime but around the world", Johnson said.

On Friday night the US, Britain and France launched air strikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining "proof" that poisonous gas was used last weekend in Douma, killing 41 civilians.

Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg are showing the way on taking responsibility
The incident wiped off billions from Zuckerberg's wealth while Facebook's stock prices slumped in a week. The trick is few people really understand what they're giving, or are capable of truly controlling it.

Labour is calling for a "War Powers Act" that would enshrine in law the need for the Government to seek Parliamentary approval before launching military action.

The air strikes, carried out by the US, UK and French military, targeted three separate targets in Syria linked to the Assad regime's chemical weapons program.

On the same show, Jeremy Corbyn expressed his unease over the strikes and criticised the prime minister for not recalling Parliament to vote on the issue.

Netherlands foreign minister Stef Blok said they didn't participate in the strikes they had not been asked to.
