Putin Warns of Global 'Chaos' if Syria Is Hit Again

16 April 2018

The United States' "work in Syria is not done", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Fox News Sunday.

"He has seen off the jihadists and Americans for eight years, he will see them off for another 80!"

On Sunday, barely 24 hours after the United States and its allies fired 105 missiles at Syrian government targets near the capital and in Homs to the north, the mood is one of relief and defiance.

As auto horns blared, the crowd moved toward nearby Damascus University where pro-government fighters danced and waved their automatic rifles over their heads.

"The chemical attacks in Syria compel us to act decisively in cooperation with our allies".

The OPCW itself had declared that the Syrian government´s chemical weapons stockpile had been removed in 2014, only to confirm later that sarin was used in a 2017 attack in the northern town of Khan Sheikhun.

Co-organizer Waseem Ramli said he's disappointed that Trudeau is supporting aggression with no evidence the Syrian government used chemical weapons. "Good morning, steadfastness", the caption read.

CBS 2's Vi Nguyen has details on local protests as well as what scholars and Syrians have to say about the military action.

The widely broadcast celebrations and the hastily organized police deployment in Douma appeared to be the government's response to the airstrikes.

"For all the sound and fury of these strikes, their net effect is a slap on the wrist of Bashar al-Assad", said Nick Heras, an analyst at the Center for a New American Security.

Syrian Canadians expressed a range of reactions to the recent USA -led air strikes against Syria's government, with some denouncing foreign aggression and others calling for even stronger action to end the conflict that has devastated the country. Its Defense Ministry said that a dozen cruise missiles had targeted Dumayr air base.

Syria has repeatedly denied using banned weapons.

Marlins: LHP Caleb Smith (0-1, 4.73) is on the mound when the Marlins begin a three-city trip Monday at Yankee Stadium. Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (right shoulder strain) might advance to a bullpen session as early as Tuesday, Hurdle said.

"We had a double victory, first the clearing of Ghouta and then the air strikes", the Minister for Religious Affairs, Mohammad Abdul-Sattar Al Sayyed, told The National.

Syria's war continues unabated, on the same course.


The bombing represents a major escalation in the West's confrontation with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's superpower ally Russian Federation, but is unlikely to alter the course of a multi-sided war that has killed at least half a million people in the past seven years.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites.

Mohammad Alloush, spokesman for the Army of Islam rebel group that was expelled from Douma, tweeted that the airstrikes were a "farce".

Toronto resident Bayan Khatib was at a community fundraiser with other Syrian Canadians on Friday night when she learned the U.S., Britain and France had launched the joint air strikes in retaliation for a suspected chemical-weapons attack on April 7 that killed 43 people and injured hundreds more in a rebel-held enclave near Damascus. In an apparent slight at Trump, who claimed this week that the new missiles would be "nice, new and smart", Moscow said some of the equipment was designed as long ago as the 1950s.

DAMASCUS: International inspectors launched their investigation Sunday into an alleged chemical attack near Damascus that prompted an unprecedented wave of Western strikes against Syria´s regime.

"We need more serious steps, more pressure to go to the negotiating table to find a political solution", even if that includes military intervention, she said.

Assad is free to continue massacring who he sees fit with conventional weapons.


Assad also declined to comment on calls by the USA state department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons, Zheleznyak said. She claimed the attacks set back Syrian chemical weapons research by years.

Russian Federation and Iran have called the strikes a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

Russian Federation called for an emergency session of United Nations Security Council on Saturday.
