Assad calls missile strikes an act of 'American aggression'

Assad calls missile strikes an act of 'American aggression'

"And they also sent a strong message to Syria, to Russian Federation, to Iran, when this president has a red line, he will enforce it".

Much like USA statements, Britain's foreign secretary Boris Johnson said there are no plans to launch additional military strikes against Syria, but that his country and its allies will consider further action if Assad uses chemical weapons against his people in the future.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said. We were not looking for war. State company Rosoboronexport, which controls most of Russia's arms exports, was also subjected to sanctions.

On Sunday, Haley made clear the United States won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying USA involvement there "is not done". That did not mean military strikes would continue.

CBS 2's Vi Nguyen has details on local protests as well as what scholars and Syrians have to say about the military action. So it's moving. It's not moving near as fast as any of us want it to move.

White also said Russian Federation has begun a disinformation campaign on the situation.

On Friday he called on US allies to do more to stabilize Syria, drive out Assad and ensure Iran does not benefit from the defeat of the Islamic State.

The big questions in Comey's badly reviewed book aren't answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (why didn't they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe's $700,000 & more? Defense Secretary James Mattis said the U.S.is certain that chlorine was used in the attack and has not ruled out the possibility that the nerve agent sarin was present as well.

"We of course know our work in Syria is not done", USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on "Fox News Sunday".

"President Assad was in absolutely positive spirits".

She said the sanctions would be announced on Monday by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

After $3.89 actual EPS reported by Apple Inc. for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts -30.33% negative EPS growth. Zacks Investment Research lowered Apple from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a research report on Friday, January 19th.

"This is something we are not going to tolerate", Haley also said Sunday. "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".

Putin's comments were published shortly after Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov struck a more conciliatory note by saying Moscow would make every effort to improve political relations with the West. That's the last thing the President wanted was war.

Haley avoided addressing the president's claim when asked by Brennan whether it was right to call the raid an attack on the country. "Having faced suffering and even death at the hands of ISIS, we hope that our assistance will help these communities to rise up again and rebuild for the future", Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson said in a statement at the time.

Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Friday night that the US military, in conjunction with British and French forces, had targeted three sites - a scientific research center near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs and a storage facility and command post also near Homs. The operation targeted three Syrian chemical weapons facilities - one in the capital of Damascus and two others near Homs, near the border with northern Lebanon.

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, hours before the missile strikes.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says it is "clear to Canada" that the Assad regime is responsible for a suspected chemical-weapons attack in Syria that left more than 40 people dead and 500 injured.

The airstrikes by US, Britain and France on Syria has also triggered wave of protests in several countries including US, Britain and France.

But he added that Trump now must "present a long-term strategy to the American people, and he must win their support before taking further military action". Analysts and diplomats said the strike was unlikely to shake Assad's hold on power or change the trajectory of the conflict. He added: "They think that they're exceptional". I also support the extraordinary service and sacrifice of our courageous men and women who serve this nation in our armed forces.

The president responded to the outrage early on Sunday morning.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the UN Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in worldwide relations", a Kremlin statement said.

The US envoy to the UN, Nikki Hayley, told the security council on Saturday its forces were ready, "locked and loaded", to mount further strikes, if there were signs Assad was planning to use chemical weapons again. They also called the attack an impediment to peace.
