Syria airstrikes: UN Security Council rejects Russian attempt to condemn USA aggression

Harry S Truman warship nuclear weapon

But the White House later said it had nothing to do with the "Mission Accomplished" banner and noted that the president never said those words in his speech on the deck of the Lincoln. It famously was on a backdrop banner when President George W. Bush stood on the deck of an aircraft carrier in May 2003 and prematurely declared victory in Iraq.

"The Syrian raid was so perfectly carried out, with such precision, that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term 'Mission Accomplished'". "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it". "Use often!" he tweeted on Sunday.

Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past USA reprisals, and the chemical itself is far easier to find and weaponise, experts say.

"If the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded..."

When asked about Trump's withdrawal statement, the Pentagon chose to refer to the White House, while the State Department's Heather Nauert said she was "not aware of" the decision, declining to comment further. The first came a year and one week ago, when Trump ordered a similar, smaller attack on a Syrian air base suspected of housing chemical weapons.

A 2015-2017 joint inquiry of the United Nations and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had found the Syrian government used sarin in an April 4, 2017, attack and has also several times used chlorine as a weapon. "We hit the sites".

Jonathan Mould of Wales took silver and South Africa's Clint Hendricks took the bronze, all in the same time. New Zealand are expected to win the semifinal and face Australia in a re-match of the Rio Olympics final.

MONTREAL-Syrian Canadians expressed a range of reactions to the recent USA -led airstrikes 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. "We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents".

Britain's UN Ambassador Karen Pierce blamed Russian Federation for repeatedly vetoing resolutions on the use of chemical weapons in Syria and said the United Kingdom took military action "to save lives", on the legal basis of "humanitarian intervention".

"We of course know that our work in Syria is not done", she said. The U.S. war there dragged on for eight more years.

And, Syrians danced in the street as a show of defiance against the United States.

After the vote, Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the US and its allies "continue to put global politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington". Haley noted that Russian Federation has vetoed six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons.

It comes after the US, UK and French launched strikes on three sites linked to Syria's chemical weapons programme. But the airfield targeted by the Pentagon resumed operations shortly after the attack and, according to Western intelligence assessments, chemical attacks resumed. "So, it was mission accomplished", said White, the Pentagon spokeswoman. What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and to his Russian and Iranian allies.
