US Says It's Still 'Locked And Loaded' For New Strikes In Syria

Russia sanctions

"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", Haley said on "Fox News Sunday".

"The president used the term "mission accomplished" in the military sense".

Following recent Airstrikes in Syria, local representatives in Congress are responding to the United State's action to punish President Bashar Assad for a suspected chemical attack against civilians.

The United States has warned Syria's government that it is "locked and loaded" to strike again if Damascus carries out chemical attacks.

Asked if this meant Assad could carry on using barrel bombs and other means in the war provided he did not use chemical weapons, Johnson said that that was the "unhappy" effect. He said the message must demonstrate that the USA and its allies have the will and capability to continue imposing those costs, and that Iran and Russian Federation will ultimately be unsuccessful in protecting Assad from our punitive response. "To succeed in the long run, we need a comprehensive strategy for Syria and the entire region". She says: "President Assad has an absolutely positive attitude, a good mood".

The three allies circulated a joint draft resolution at the Security Council that also calls for unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid, enforcing a ceasefire and demands that Syria engage in UN-led peace talks. "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".

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah group that has hundreds of fighters backing Assad's forces, said the airstrikes failed to "terrorize or break the spirits" of Syria and its allies. "However, air strikes alone will not achieve that goal", said House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley. Another senior opposition figure, Nasr Hariri, said the attacks were welcome but only reinforced the message that while it is not OK to use chemical weapons, the government can continue to "use explosive barrels and cluster bombs" with impunity.

"We all know our work in Syria is not done", she told Fox News' "Fox News Sunday". He added that the Congress must have a full role in reviewing and approving the strategy.

The US Ambassador to United Nations also used the occasion to defend the usage of the words "mission accomplished", by the US President Donald Trump after he ordered the military on Friday to launch airstrikes on three sites in Syria.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

"Ten days ago, President Trump was saying the United States of America had a duty to disengage from Syria", Macron said, according to AFP. Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal said Trump has just conducted another set of unconstitutional strikes.

Kaine said the Syrian operations lack a clear strategy. "These air strikes are not only unconstitutional, they are dangerously escalating a conflict that could send us into a war with multiple countries", Jayapal said. A Syrian government source told Russian reporters that OPCW experts were planning to start their activities in the Syrian area of Eastern Ghouta, where a chemical attack allegedly took place.

"Air strikes disconnected from a broader strategy may be necessary, but they alone will not achieve USA objectives in the Middle East", he said. Syria war monitors said the military emptied air bases and moved equipment before the strikes.
