Trump defends use of "mission accomplished" phrase for Syria strike

N  AThe USS Farragut is one of the eight destroyers on its way to Syria

A day after the United States, along with the UK and France, launched a missile strike against Syria in response to President Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons, Trump sent a tweet claiming "Mission Accomplished!"

When asked whether Russian Federation was prepared to work with the proposals of Western countries at the United Nations, Ryabkov told TASS news agency: "Now the political situation is extremely tense, the atmosphere is extremely electrified, so I will not make any predictions".

Later Sunday, Haley told CBS' "Face the Nation " that the US will be imposing more economic sanctions on Russian Federation for its support of Assad and his apparent use of chemical weapons.

Syrian Canadians expressed a range of reactions to the recent USA -led air strikes against Syria's government, with some denouncing foreign aggression and others calling for even stronger action to end the conflict that has devastated the country.

The weekend's airstrikes in Syria and the country's seven-year-long civil war were also expected to be discussed.

Haley also repeated her comment Saturday, at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, that the US remains "locked and loaded". We set their chemical weapons program back years.Our job was never to take Assad out.

Haley rejected the premise posed by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace that the US has condoned Assad's use of conventional weapons to kill rebels attacking his forces, just not chemical agents. "Use often!" he said.

During the first inning and before the start of the second inning the match was interrupted a couple of times due to rain. However, Jason Roy (91*) made his intentions very clear from the outset.

Trump has made clear he wants to withdraw the roughly 2000 USA troops involved in the anti-Islamic State campaign in Syria.

British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said the legal basis used to support the British role was debatable, adding that he would only support action backed by the UN Security Council.

"It's illegal because he didn't come and ask permission", he said.

Russian agencies quoted the lawmakers as saying that Assad was in a "good mood", had praised the Soviet-era air defence systems Syria used to repel the Western attacks and had accepted an invitation to visit Russia at an unspecified time. Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons. Let the other people take care of it now [.] We're going to have 100 percent of the caliphate, as they call it, sometimes referred to as land. Syria has always denied any chemical use and accused rebels of fabricating the attack.

It is our goal "to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things", Haley said.

Sarin had previously appeared to be the threshold for intervention.

US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer warned of the risks of being drawn into "a greater and more involved war in Syria". The military said there were three targets: the Barzah chemical weapons research and development site in the Damascus area, a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs and a chemical weapons "bunker" a few miles from the second target.
