Trump announces strike on Syria with US-led coalition after chemical weapons attack
- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 14, 2018So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis on Friday announced the press briefing would be held Saturday for the specific reason of dispelling false information about the strike coming from Russian Federation, which is a key ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
She argued that "there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime". "Over the past seven years, we've witnessed all kinds of deaths".
U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis on Friday night said the assault was a "one-time shot", so long as Assad does not repeat his use of chemical weapons.
Omar Jandali Riafi said the Montreal Syrian community had been anticipating an American response since the attack.
The 15-member council met on Saturday, at Russia's request, the fifth time it has met on Syria since a suspected deadly poison gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma a week ago.
"When our President draws a red line, our President enforces the red", she said.
Two other chemical weapons facilities near Homs were targeted, the Pentagon said.
"We believe that to give blood is to give life, and we want to give life to Canada that gave us life", he said. Trump tweeted Thursday: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".
There are those in the Montreal Syrian community who supported the strike.
"A plan for ending the crisis must be found, with a political solution".
Earlier Saturday, Pence held off from expressing a final judgment about whether sarin gas was deployed in the chemical weapons attack.
While there appears to be no immediate alternative to the so-called Geneva Process that would lead to a political transition in Syria, several senior USA officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, insisted it has failed and it was time to rethink. The strikes "successfully hit every target" and the allies "took every measure and caution" to only hit the intended targets, White said Saturday morning. "Now, in Damascus, the regime is actually celebrating their victory". In a calculated show of defiance, the presidency posted a video showing Mr Assad apparently turning up for work following the attacks. "It was just a media stunt". White said she could not go into detail about that evidence. "I was medical student in my second year, I wanted to do psychiatry after". We wanted a better future.

He said the agreement would "undermine" the US economy and its independence and said it was a potential "disaster". But the damage was limited , and a defiant Assad returned to episodic use of chlorine and perhaps other chemicals.
