In Syria strikes, USA blurs red line for intervention

In Syria strikes, USA blurs red line for intervention

Local government officials are responding tonight, after President Trump addressed the nation, stating that the US has launched precision strikes on targets associated with the Syrian chemical weapons program.

Vice President Mike Pence also said Trump carried out the strikes armed with USA intelligence that at "a minimum it was the chemical weapon of chlorine", noting investigators still might prove sarin was used. "These strikes were a justified, legitimate and proportionate response to the Syrian regime's continued use of chemical weapons on its own people", White said.

U.S. envoy Haley also said that if Trump draws the red line, he enforces it and the USA will continue to sustain pressure on Syria.

Since the USA and its allies attacked Syria Friday in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks on its own people, there has been a significant surge in Russian trolls promoting fake news, the Pentagon announced Saturday.

Second target was a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs believed to be primary storage location of the regimes sarin and precursor production equipment.

Celebrating his crushing victory over rebels in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, where the suspected chemical attack took place, Assad was said to be in a "good mood" today.

He said there were no known civilian casualties, but noted Syria had fired about 40 unguided surface-to-air missiles, most of which did not launch until after the allied strike was over.

A UN Security Council vote brought by Syria's ally, Russia, and condemning the US-led strikes was rejected.

Western powers claim their missile attacks struck at the heart of Syria's chemical weapons program but what they destroyed included a scientific research institution producing cancer drugs.

The U.S. president was also said to be upset over perceived Russian inaction over Syria using the weapons.

Military strikes hit three targets: a warfare technology center and two chemical weapons facilities.

The demonstrators questioned the real objective of the U.S. military operation. She said that Washington's main goal is "to see American troops come home", but it is not going to leave "until we know we have accomplished those things". The White House has since given out that it was guided by news reports and reports by other sources (probably NGOs) in accusing Bashar al-Assad.

"So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime", May said.
