Chemical Weapon Attack In US 'Could Happen', UN Ambassador Nikki Haley Warns

That phrase, last owned by George W. Bush after invading Iraq, has aged badly. After the middle-of-the-night attack on Syria, some USA television commentators poked fun at Trump's use of the "Mission accomplished" term, first used in 2003 by former President George W. Bush, who claimed prematurely and wrongly that the us had successfully completed its military attack on Iraq.

No military response from any actors in Syria - including Iran and Russian Federation - has been seen, the Pentagon said.

Right-wing personality and author Ann Coulter retweeted people who floated the possibility that the chemical attacks were entirely fabricated or staged by people wanting to frame Assad and encourage the U.S. to strike Syria.

President Trump declared "Mission Accomplished" hours after US and European forces bombarded three Syrian chemical weapons facilities with 105 missiles - with none intercepted by Syrian or Russian defenses.

The US has reportedly around 2,000 troops stationed in Syria working as "advisers" to US-backed militant groups fighting the Syrian government.

"The United States estimates that Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times".

"This was not about interfering in a civil war".

That again says the displacement of millions of Syrians, the barrel bombs, the nighttime airstrikes, the city sieges and starving of tens of thousands of people, none of that crosses red lines in the West.

Meanwhile, Russia's defense ministry said Saturday the Western strikes claimed no victims among Syrian civilians or military.

Russian officials described the Syrian President as being in a "good mood" during Sunday's meeting and continuing his work in Damascus.

The limited strikes were deplored by the Syrian opposition, which saw the West as lacking an global strategy for dealing with the civil war.

But the conflict would drag on for more than a decade, killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Americans, including civilians, and unleashing ISIS from a power vacuum that ensued.

"Such a strategy is not just about deterrence and disablement".

"According to preliminary information, there were no victims among peaceful civilians and the Syrian military", senior military officer Sergei Rudskoi said at a briefing in Moscow.

"The time has come for Western forces that support terrorism to admit that they have lost control", Assad said to his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani on the phone.

All this did not sit well with the RSS. "This blatant anti-Narendra Modi and anti-BJP stance is not the style of the sangh now". As per reports, Togadia's new organisation is going to be named "Hindu Hi Aage" which translates into Hindus at the forefront.

Tied at 6-6 in the top of the sixth, Sonnon drew a walk to reach base, and advanced to second on a groundout from Stanford. Alexus Johnson finished with 2 RBIs for DMA (7-0), who will look to stay unbeaten when they host Red Lion Tuesday at 3:45.

Who is more credible: Donald Trump or James Comey?
Comey was also joined by NSA Director Mike Rogers, CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. But it was the Cheney-Addington showdown that established Comey's independence in the minds of many in Washington, D.C.

That raises more matters that remain unresolved, and will continue to fuel violence - matters like the unsafe proximity of Iranian and Israeli forces. "I suspect, however, they'll think long and hard about it based on the activities of last night".

"It's time for Washington to learn that the worldwide code of behavior regarding the use of force is regulated by the United Nations Charter", Mr. Nebenzia said.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites. If they're used, the USA promises to strike again.

The Pentagon on Saturday echoed the President's assessment. They have done nothing but brutalize their people and destroy their land.

Ms Deeb suggests: "They were faking the symptoms in the video, and the Syrian army found the jihadists' chemical weapons factories when they entered Ghouta".

"The use of sarin and nerve agent previous year in fact did reinforce such suspicions".

France has continued to talk regularly with Russian Federation even as East-West tensions have grown.

Russia also stands accused of being behind an attempt to assassinate a former Russian spy on a Salisbury street using a nerve agent.

But after days of Trump's telegraphing the coming assault, the strikes appear to have taken aim at targets more limited than some within his administration had championed, and the extent to which they would knock out Syria's chemical weapons production capacity was unclear Saturday.

She authorized the strikes without parliamentary backing and it's not clear she would have got it if she'd sought it. Parliament refused United Kingdom participation in a planned punitive raid on Syria in 2013, one of the reasons then-U.S. President Barack Obama called it off.

The United States "gave diplomacy chance after chance after chance", she said, only to have Russian Federation block, last Tuesday, an effort to set up an independent body to investigate chemical attacks in Syria.

His choice of words recalled a similar claim associated with President George W. Bush following the US -led invasion of Iraq.

Some Russians threatened to burn Trump in effigy. The moment - especially the "Mission Accomplished" on the banner - dogged Bush for the remainder of his presidency.

"I say to the foreign secretary, I say to the prime minister, where is the legal basis for this?"
