Haley warns Assad: Trump 'watching,' USA work in Syria 'not done'

Here's what some WA Congress members are saying about the missile strikes in Syria

London and Washington have played down the prospect of further military action against Syria but Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said there would be fresh sanctions against Russian companies which have helped the Assad regime's chemical weapons programme.

Co-organizer Waseem Ramli said he's disappointed that Trudeau is supporting aggression with no evidence the Syrian government used chemical weapons. He noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin had guaranteed in 2013 that Syria would give up all of its chemical weapons. With seemingly open-ended support from allies Russian Federation and Iran, the Syrian military will most definitely turn its attention to remaining opposition-held territory, namely in the south and the northern province of Idlib.

It is one of at least three sites that have been consistently referenced in association with Syria's chemical weapons program, including Masyaf and Dummar, also known as Jamraya, both reported to have been hit by Israeli strikes a year ago.

"We worry that's it's not part of a larger strategy to end the war crimes in Syria, but just a show of power that's going to scare the regime a little bit but then everything goes back to normal". Macron spoke with Putin on Friday, before the airstrikes. I support President Trump's limited action to target chemical weapons facilities and hold this brutal regime accountable.

The bombings, hailed by US President Donald Trump as a success but denounced by Damascus and its allies as an act of aggression, marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation, whose foreign minister Sergei Lavrov called them "unacceptable and lawless". The attack last week killed dozens of people including children.

Trump had said "mission accomplished" on Twitter after the strikes, though US Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie at the Pentagon acknowledged elements of the program remain and he could not guarantee that Syria would be unable to conduct a chemical attack in the future.

President Trump's pledge for sustained military action demands a strategic plan to be authorised and reviewed by Congress.

"We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", Haley said.

"It's reckless because as you pointed out there isn't a strategy", Kaine added. However, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said that one night of air strikes was not a substitute for a clear, comprehensive Syria strategy.

"We say enough with death, enough with killing civilians", said Hani Atassi, president of the Syrian American Council chapter in Chicago.

The two leaders agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in Syria, the news agencies reported.

Mekdad declined to comment to reporters waiting outside the hotel where the meeting took place.
