Local Congressional Leaders on Syria Airstrikes

Local Congressional Leaders on Syria Airstrikes”

Assad "now dictates his own life", Haley said. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

The attacks struck at the heart of Syria's chemical weapons program, Washington said, in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack a week ago. We set their chemical weapons program back years.Our job was never to take Assad out.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the United States and its allies "continue to put global politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington". "To succeed in the long run, we need a comprehensive strategy for Syria and the entire region. That's why you saw the president strike this past weekend, that's why you saw him expel sixty Russian spies after the attack in Salisbury", she added.

Russian Federation and Iran have called the action a "military crime" and "act of aggression". A UN Security Council vote brought by Syria's ally, Russia, and condemning the US-led strikes was rejected. "There should be no doubt that Russian Federation and Iran have blood on their hands, and their partnership with Assad reveals the true nature of their regimes".

Any opposition expectations that the airstrikes might try to destroy or degrade Assad's lethal air power or target bases where his warplanes and helicopters begin their bombing missions were quickly dashed: The U.S., British and French precision attacks only singled out Assad's alleged chemical weapons capabilities. "However, air strikes alone will not achieve that goal", said House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley.

For a president who has been widely criticized for not using strong language against Russia, Trump framed Russia's role in remarkably personal terms. Macron spoke with Putin on Friday, before the airstrikes.

A number of non-governmental organizations, including the White Helmets, earlier said chemical weapons had been used in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, on April 7.

"We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", Haley said.

U.S. President Donald Trump praised the military strike on Syria as a "perfectly executed" operation and said it was aimed at ending the use of such weapons of mass destruction.

Trump said a small American force over the past year has virtually eliminated Islamic State control over what once was a vast territory spanning parts of Syria and Iraq. We were not looking for war.

"Air strikes disconnected from a broader strategy may be necessary, but they alone will not achieve United States objectives in the Middle East", he said. However, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said that one night of air strikes was not a substitute for a clear, comprehensive Syria strategy.
