Trump Declares 'Mission Accomplished' in Syria Strike

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", the USA president said in a televised address.

"If Assad doesn't get it, it's going to hurt".

The US president said that "it is such a great military term, it should be brought back".

Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Saturday after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles almost unopposed by Syrian air defenses. It is about ISIS and deterring Assad's use of chemical weapons.

The phrase is associated with President George W. Bush, who used it in 2003 during the Iraq war but which dogged him for the rest of his presidency.

He then went on to list several different categories of the services Facebook and other tech companies provide but Sen. Criticizing the leadership and policies of Facebook is totally fair game, but under-eye shaming is never cool.

In May 2003, President Bush stood on an aircraft carrier under a giant "Mission Accomplished" banner and declared that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended" - just six weeks after the invasion. Under the War Powers Resolution, the president must keep Congress informed of such actions. She indicated the U.S. will continue its involvement in Syria. Today he announced via Twitter, "Mission accomplished".

"We're not going to leave until we know we've accomplished those things", she said. A senior official in a regional alliance that backs Damascus told Reuters the sites that were targeted had been evacuated days ago after a warning from Russian Federation.

Trump's approach, he said, "is not about the balance of power in Syria". Mattis said that no follow-up strikes are planned, adding that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian and Syrian civilians nearby.

Russian Federation and Iran called the use of force by the United States and its allies a "military crime" and "act of aggression". The U.N. Safety Council met to debate the strikes, however rejected a Russian decision calling for condemnation of the "aggression" by the three Western allies.

The Pentagon said there had been chemical weapons agents at one of the targets, and that although there were other parts to Syria's chemical weapons system, the strikes had significantly limited its ability to produce such weapons. The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used.

Denhollander, when reached after Friday's board meeting, denied meeting with Engler and said she did not offer a number. When I explained that it's not about the money for me and that I just want to help, he said "well give me a number".

"Good souls will not be humiliated", Assad tweeted while hundreds of Syrians gathered in Damascus, the capital, where they flashed victory signs and waved flags in scenes of defiance after the early morning barrage.

The strikes "efficiently hit each goal", White instructed reporters on the Pentagon. "I can assure you we took every measure and precaution to strike only what we targeted and -- and we successfully hit every target", White told media.

Vice President Mike Pence, in Peru for a gathering of regional leaders, mentioned "there shall be a value to pay" involving army drive if Syrian chemical weapons are used once more. In a US army motion a 12 months in the past in response to a sarin gasoline assault, the Pentagon mentioned missiles took out practically 20 p.c of the Syrian air drive.

The U.S. -led operation won broad Western support. The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-Normal Jens Stoltenberg mentioned in Brussels that the assault was about guaranteeing that chemical weapons can't be used with impunity.

Apparently, President Donald Trump doesn't have those concerns following Friday night's military strike in Syria. That did not mean military strikes would continue.
