'Mission Accomplished' not last of actions vs. Syria

'Mission Accomplished' not last of actions vs. Syria

That's a phrase presidents and politicians have studiously avoided since President George W. Bush's ill-fated aircraft carrier visit prematurely declaring success in the Iraq War. "It is such a great Military term, it should be brought back", he wrote.

"The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons".

He said, "Ten days ago, President Trump wanted to withdraw from Syria". "I believe that we took the heart of it out with the attacks. But..."

President Donald Trump was extremely online Sunday morning.

Stepping up the pressure on Syria's president, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley indicated the sanctions to be announced Monday would be aimed at sending a message to Russian Federation, which she said has blocked six attempts by the U.N. Security Council to make it easier to investigate the use of chemical weapons.

Since the war in Iraq dragged on for years to come along with American casualties accumulated, the "Mission Accomplished" banner became a hit line, a telling indication of their Bush government's gross under estimation of this battle posed from the conflict.

Donald Trump claimed the limited airstrikes were "perfectly executed" and that he "could not have had a better result". Photos show that the missiles destroyed several buildings, but beyond that, it's hard to say what the mission accomplished.

Trump addressed the nation last night, letting his fellow citizens know that a coalition of the French, British, and American military took a coordinated strike on Syria in reaction to Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons on his own civilians. Defense Department chief spokeswoman Dana White reportedly told reporters at the Pentagon that the strike meant to hit chemical weapon facilities. If Assad continues to use chemical weapons, he can expect increased attacks.

A global chemical warfare watchdog group said its fact-finding mission would go as planned in Douma, where the apparent use of poison gas against civilians on April 7 that killed more than 40 people compelled the Western allies to launch their attack. And now you know the full story, ' he said.

She added, "What happens next depends on what the Assad regime decides to do". "As he declares the USA -led airstrikes against Syria a success, President Donald Trump is adopting a phrase that a previous president came to regret - 'mission accomplished".
