Assad says US-led missile strike coupled with lies

Mattis Assad didn't get the message last year

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Sunday that the USA would launch new missile strikes against his regime if he carries out another chemical weapons attack. There will be more.

Haley added that the USA wants to ensure that chemical weapons are not used in a way that is of risk to U.S. interests, Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) is defeated, and Iran's actions are monitored."Be very clear, if we leave, when we leave, it will be because we know that everything is moving forward", Haley added.

"I suspect, however, they'll think long and hard about it", he said. "We'll watch his actions".

"Hopefully he's gotten the message, it was a pretty strong message", she said.

A coalition of ships and bombers hammered three Syrian chemical weapons sites with 105 weapons on Friday night in an escalated response created to smash the Assad regime's capacity to use chemical weapons like chlorine and sarin gas.

Speaking to an emergency session of the UN Security Council on Saturday, Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations, said: "If the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded".

It said the "precise, overwhelming and effective" military strike in Syria by US, France and Britain were meant to send a clear message that the use of chemical weapons against its own civilians is inexcusable.

During an address to the Security Council, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged all states "to show restraint in these unsafe circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate matters and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people".

The developments undermined the worldwide community's efforts to reach a political solution to the seven-year bloody political conflict in Syria, which killed hundreds of thousands of people and left millions of others homeless, the source added.

E. coli outbreak in 11 states linked to romaine lettuce
They all got ill after eating romaine lettuce. "If you can not confirm the source of the lettuce, do not buy or eat it". Epidemiologic evidence collected to date indicates that chopped romaine lettuce is the likely source of this outbreak.

According to Vladimir Putin, the United States used a staged chemical attack against civilians to carry out a strike. "We can't control what a country does to its people".

Mr Trump had announced the strikes on TV on Friday night, saying the three allies had "marshalled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality". -Russian relations are at a low point.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", she added.

THE United States, France and Britain have launched a new bid at the United Nations to investigate chemical weapons use in Syria that also aims to see a return to diplomacy.

USA military officials said an initial assessment showed every one of the missiles struck its target on Saturday, reducing the facilities to rubble while avoiding any civilian casualties.

It comes after the US, UK and French launched strikes on three sites linked to Syria's chemical weapons programme.

A draft resolution circulated by the three countries and obtained late Saturday by The Associated Press would condemn all use of chemical weapons, especially the April 7 attack in Douma. "This is going to set the Syrian chemical weapons program back for years", McKenzie said.

Senior Russian military officials said on Saturday that Syria's air defenses, which are mostly made up of Soviet-era systems, had shot down 71 of the Western missiles. It condemns "the aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic by the US and its allies in violation of global law and the UN Charter".
