Syria's Assad in a 'good mood,' scorns United States weaponry after airstrikes

16 April 2018

The US has denied that report and the Pentagon said the strikes successfully hit the three chemical weapons facilities they targeted, with President Trump calling it "Mission Accomplished!'". He said the allies acted without a United Nations mandate because of the "constant stalemate of the Russians" in the Security Council.

On Sunday, he defended the use of the term "mission accomplished", which was widely mocked for repeating former President George Bush W. Bush's famous "mission accomplished" banner unfurled on an aircraft carrier during the Iraq conflict in 2003.

He claimed his use of the term was intentional and that he knew the "Fake News Media" would seize on his use of it.

Her predecessor, David Cameron, lost a vote on air strikes against Assad's forces in 2013, with many in Britain wary of entering another conflict, especially after an inquiry concluded that then-prime minister Tony Blair's decision to join the 2003 USA -led war against Iraq was based on flawed intelligence.

"Assad knew that Russian Federation had its back, Assad knew that Russian Federation would cover for them at the United Nations, and Assad got reckless, and he used it in a way that was far more aggressive", she said.

"I just want to tell Mr. Trump directly: I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks, who lived under two years of siege and bombardment by the government", Eid said. "We ask you to stop this ongoing civil war in Syria and to provide stability and peace for its people and a future for this generation and generations to come... we pray for you to convict the hearts of the Syrian government to care for its people, more than power".

Trump has made clear he wants to withdraw the roughly 2,000 USA troops in Syria involved in the anti-Islamic State campaign, and his administration has suspended support for Syrian rebels, evidence of his desire to disengage from Syria.

Meanwhile, the leader of Britain's opposition party, Jeremy Corbyn, described Saturday's strike as a "legally questionable attack".

Putin stressed that if such actions in violation of the UN Charter continue, "it will inevitably entail chaos in worldwide relations", according to the statement.
