Syria air strikes: President Trump statement in full

Both advocates and opponents of legalized bud reacted with care on Saturday to evidence from the WhiteHouse that farmers at USA nations where in fact the medication would be permitted could be guarded against prosecution, " declaring it was too premature to be aware of the final impact. After the attack ceased and the early morning skies went dark once more, vehicles with loudspeakers roamed the streets of Damascus blaring nationalist songs. Chinese tariff proposals run the agricultural gamut from hogs to soybeans and more ["Farmers who backed Trump fear becoming pawns in trade war", news, April 9].

President Donald Trump says the United States has "launched precision strikes" on targets associated with Syrian chemical weapons program.

U.S. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis called the strikes a "one-time shot", although Trump raised the prospect of further strikes if Assad's government again used chemical weapons.

Both SAMS and the Syrian Civil Defense are calling on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate what they refer to as a "heinous chemical attack".

Pentagon officials said they only had reports that Syrian, but not Russian, anti-missile defenses had been engaged. A huge fire could be seen from a distance to the east.

As negotiations over the Syria response continued, Trump was pummeled by the surprise raid of his personal attorney Michael Cohen's home and office and the new book from fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

A auto with loudspeakers blaring the national song "Oh Syria, You Are My Love" could be heard driving through central Damascus amid the attack. Syrian television reported that a scientific research center had been hit.

Meanwhile, Syrian state TV called the strikes a "blatant violation of worldwide law". He said the agreement would "undermine" the US economy and its independence and said it was a potential "disaster".

Turkey's foreign ministry said the airstrikes were "an appropriate response to the chemical attack".

At a Cabinet meeting Monday, Trump condemned the "atrocious attack", promising speedy action.

"It's not yet clear how real it is, given the different views in the US administration", Trade Minister David Parker said. "But on this occasion there is none", May said.

Some Republicans, and more Democrats, demanded Trump seek authority for future missile strikes from Congress, which under the Constitution and the 1973 War Powers Resolution is required to approve military action.

One year ago, Assad launched a savage chemical weapons attack against his own innocent people.

Other local politicians released statements as well. It said that "all responsibility" rests with Washington, London and Paris.

The strategic aim of the US response, a former senior Defense official familiar with planning for the attack said, was to raise the cost of using weapons prohibited by global treaty and doubts in the minds of Assad's military officers the next time he orders a similar attack. But the damage was limited, and a defiant Assad returned to episodic use of chlorine and perhaps other chemicals.

In his nationwide address, Trump stressed that he has no interest in a longtime fight with Syria. Frederick Burke, managing partner for Vietnam at the American law firm Baker McKenzie, said that the Vietnamese government is "very aware of and focused on the issue of circumvention" in trade. "I look forward to learning more from our military leaders in the coming days".
