Russian Federation and USA to maintain hotline to prevent midair collisions over Syria

Dmitry Peskov, spokesperson of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said the missile strikes created a "serious obstacle" to creating an global coalition to defeat ISIL and said that Russia views the strikes as an attempt to deflect world attention from civilian deaths in Iraq - where scores of people died in a series of US-led coalition air strikes in Mosul last month. He said it was ultimately "the regime's choice" if more US military action would be needed. "I don't think this is enough". "Generally thinking, you want to do these things carefully". On CNN, Risch was asked whether those images also changed his own mind about accepting Syrian refugees into this country. Sens. Marco Rubio, John McCain and Lindsey Graham - longtime skeptics of Trump's will to address human rights abuses by authoritarian regimes - praised Trump for taking action.

So far, Republicans leaders have expressed support for Trump's actions, with House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.) calling the strikes "appropriate and just".

"It's vital that the United States is now clear about its intentions and that the whole global community works towards a political settlement in Syria". I send my gratitude to the men and women of America's armed forces fighting our enemies overseas.

He is the most senior figure from Labour so far to have spoken out on the attacks launched by U.S. president Donald Trump overnight.

"Assad was warned, repeatedly, by the us and the United Nations that the intentional targeting of innocent men, women and children is intolerable".

The US envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, has said the country is prepared to take further action in Syria if necessary, but hopes it will not be.

Tuesday's chemical attack on Idlib province in northern Syria drew the ire of several United Nations member states and received widespread condemnation across the globe.

Syria's government and army denied any use of chemical weapons or involvement in the incident.

Ms. Ambrose said Canada must directly confront "evil and tyranny" and can not count on the United Nations to deal with crimes against humanity.

"The apology should have been directed toward the protesters and the movement itself, which their ad appears to trivialize". The ad was mocked by several people , among them Bernice King, daughter of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

"Congress is being negligent in its constitutional obligation", Larson said.

But Edward Djerejian, a former US ambassador to Syria and professor at Rice University, said Trump's message to the region's potential foes was clear.

Konashenkov said "the combat efficiency of the USA strike was very low", adding that only 23 of the 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles reached the Shayrat air base in the province of Homs. On Wednesday, Trump said that the attacks "crossed a lot of lines for me" and hinted that he might pursue some sort of military action in response.

Trump continued, "Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children".

US presidents have taken sporadic military action without Congress' approval for decades now, and the current law has become muddled by an ongoing authorization allowing the president to take military actions against terrorism. But Thursday night Trump appeared to endorse a new, open-ended commitment to respond to any use by Assad of weapons of mass destruction. Rand Paul of Kentucky. Russian Federation is in position to resist any further USA attacks that are strong enough to weaken the regime, adding another element of risk.

But, as NPR's Tamara Keith noted, Trump himself had argued then as a private citizen that the US should not become engaged in the conflict.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada fully supports what he called the United States' "limited and focused action" in carrying out a missile strike on Syria in retaliation for this week's chemical weapons attack.

"Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched". Yet to be seen are any repercussions from Syria or Russian Federation.

The U.S. attack on a Syrian air base came after years of heated debate and deliberation in Washington over intervention in the bloody civil war. All of the 124th is back home now, Guard spokesman Maj.
