Syria Says It Responded to US-led Missile Strikes

May ready to bypass Parliament & approve UK military intervention in Syria – BBC

After every line of text, the mustachioed Bolton - who was concluding his first week on the job - would glance up at the President, who was adhering closely to the script scrolling before him in a teleprompter.

"We confined it to the chemical weapons-type targets", Mattis said.

French President Emmanuel Macron also confirmed his country's participation in the operation. Trump insisted that France not act before the U.S., lest he be upstaged by his younger French counterpart, with whom he's fostered a close friendship after their relationship began with a tense, white-knuckled handshake in Brussels.

- Prime Minister Theresa May said the decision to launch the strikes was not taken lightly, but she believed it to be in the UK's national interest.

In the biggest foreign military action so far against Syria's regime, Western officials said a barrage of cruise and air-to-land missiles hit targets near Damascus and in Homs province including a scientific research centre, storage facilities and a command post.

Married three times, Forman met his third wife Martina - a writer three decades his junior - in Prague in the 1990s. First to actress Jana Brejchova (his lead actress in " Loves of a Blonde ") and then to Vera Kresadlova.

"We will not stand by passively while Assad, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, ignores global law", White said. However, like last year's missile strike, it will send a strong message to the rest of the world.

The official spoke anonymously according to protocol.

"We can not tolerate the recurring use of chemical weapons, which is an immediate danger for the Syrian people and our collective security". They were a predictable move, considering Trump made threats earlier in the week. "We don't want to get into a fight with them, they don't want to get in a fight with us", he said.

The strikes would result in a "long term degradation of Syria's ability" to create, use and deploy chemical weapons, U.S. Gen. Joseph Dunford said in a press conference Friday night, adding that the operation was meant to inflict "maximum damage" with minimal risk to civilians.

Trump attributed the attacks to Russia's inability to stop Syria's Assad from using chemical weapons.

PlayStation 5 Isn't Actually Coming Before 2020
Instead of figuring out when the PlayStation 5 will be launched, gamers should instead enjoy what the PlayStation 4 offers. Earlier this year , it was also speculated that the future PlayStation console would move to more "procedural content".

USA president Donald Trump announced the "combined operation" on Friday night, as Prime Minister Theresa May said there was "no practicable alternative to the use of force". Trump said in his remarks Friday.

The US was also anxious that the strikes would prompt a confrontation with Syria's biggest military ally: Russian Federation. He's spent extended portions of each day in fits of anger.

"These are not the actions of a man", Trump said of last weekend's attack in a televised address from the White House Diplomatic Room.

News of the phone call did little to bolster protestations from Trump's aides that he remained squarely focused on the Syria matter. There won't be anything, or anyone, even close! Analysts and diplomats said the strike was unlikely to shake Assad's hold on power or change the trajectory of the conflict.

"If it's the Russians, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out, and we'll know the answers quite soon", Trump said on Monday. Vice President Mike Pence traveled in his place.
