Syrian Vermonters React To News Of US, Allies Airstrikes

"We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he is going to use chemical weapons again and should he use it again, the president has made it very clear that the United States is locked and loaded and ready to go".

The ambassador dismissed the possibility that there might be an escalation of the conflict between Russian Federation and the USA which would justify fears of a Third World War.

"These are big things the president's been focused on", Sanders said. We were not looking to kill people.

United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley confirmed that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin would make an announcement about the sanctions on Monday, in an attempt to send "a strong message".

New U.S. sanctions against Russian Federation are coming as soon as Monday to punish the country for its support of the Syrian regime, Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Sunday.

The Pentagon has said the strikes successfully hit the three chemical weapons facilities which were targeted. "We're going to continue building on that".

"We've attacked the heart of the Syrian chemical weapons program", said Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr.

President Donald Trump said the U.S. is prepared to sustain economic, diplomatic and military pressure on Assad until he ends what the president called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons.

He reaffirmed Russia's view that a purported chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma that prompted the strike was a fake.

"They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use", Haley said.

"I think (the relationship) has been changing over time", she said.

She added that Russian Federation is feeling the effects of United States actions including "the sanctions that are continuing to happen, which you'll see again on Monday".

But her move to add British Tornado jets to U.S. and French forces that launched around 105 missiles in the early hours of Saturday might be met with retaliatory measures by Syrian ally Russian Federation and breaks with a convention to obtain parliamentary approval for military action dating back to the 2003 Iraq war.

Why did we bomb Syria?

Asked about the refugee crisis that has aroused much controversy, Barnes said he was in favour of letting the refugees into the United States because the country is in part responsible for the crisis, not only in Syria, but also in other places around the world.

As Syria was being bombed, Fox News reporter Hollie McKay claimed people in Syria are "really excited" and they wanted the U.S.to drop more bombs. All in the name of power.

"No, he never thought he'd get out in 48 hours", she said.

Haley, however said the United Nations will continue to "stay involved diplomatically" and "will see that through in terms of the political solution".

It added that to achieve this, all parties must restrain from actions that can escalate the conflict and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people.

The vote followed bitter exchanges, with Russian Federation accusing the allies of "cynical disdain" and the U.S. saying that Russian Federation had trashed diplomatic moves on chemical weapons. "But this is a political process that needs to happen".
