United Kingdom's Might to Manage lawmakers Around Syria Air-strikes

Relation Speciale? UK pushed aside as French take pole position behind US in latest military action

The British lawmakers expressed their condemnation of the PM's action, with the leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, on the forefront against May's decision.

"I'm absolutely clear that it is parliament's responsibility to hold me to account for such decisions and parliament will do so", May told the House of Commons in a rowdy session.

But her move to add British Tornado jets to US and French forces that launched around 105 missiles in the early hours of Saturday might be met with retaliatory measures by Syrian ally Russian Federation and breaks with a convention to obtain parliamentary approval for military action dating back to the 2003 Iraq war.

"The prime minister has set out very clearly over the weekend her reasons for taking the action... in Syria".

But she still has to tread carefully in parliament, where she now relies on a small Northern Irish party to get enough votes to pass legislation, and has tried to appease lawmakers, angry over being sidelined, by offering time to discuss Syria. "The Syrian government effectively made it very hard for the resident population to reach ambulances and rescue teams, forced residents to seek shelter from heavy barrel bomb attacks, and then carried out airstrikes suspected to have contained poisonous gas", the organization said in a report released after the attack. "Why was this not done?"

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May attends a press conference in 10 Downing Street, London, April 14, 2018. We have done it because we believed it was the right thing to do.

But she will be grilled over why she broke with a convention to seek parliamentary approval for the action, a decision that she and her ministers say was driven by the need to act quickly.

Knicks not interested in Jeff Van Gundy reunion
His best season as head coach was in 1999 leading the Knicks to the Knicks to an appearance in the NBA Finals. Van Gundy, who now works as a commentator for ESPN, previously coached the Knicks from 1996-2001.

Writing on Twitter, Rev Fraser said: "With the Grand Mufti of Syria - the top Muslim cleric in Syria - in the astonishing Umayyad Mosque in central Damascus talking about how love is stronger than missiles".

May faced down her domestic critics as France's premier defended the "proportionate" response to the use of chemical weapons.

But she will be mindful of how military action can backfire.

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 US-led war against Iraq was based on flawed intelligence.

Many people from the Caribbean have emigrated to the UK. Some 36 percent supported the strikes.

But in a sign that the government fears it could lose, one lawmaker said on condition of anonymity that the party's whips, charged with maintaining voting discipline, had made clear that Conservatives should vote with the government. "If it's a success, she wins".
