Responding to criticism that Trump last month somehow encouraged Assad to use chlorine bombs against his how people by indicating that he wanted 2,000 US troops in Syria to withdraw, Haley said the president has made it clear soldiers will remain until the job is finished.

The United States "gave diplomacy chance after chance after chance", she said, only to have Russian Federation block, last Tuesday, an effort to set up an independent body to investigate chemical attacks in Syria.

Mercho came to the US from Syria in the late 1970s, but even now he's got many family members still living in Syria, including some in Damascus.

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, hours before the missile strikes.

What has been the reaction to the strikes?

Russian Federation called for an emergency session of United Nations Security Council on Saturday.

Russia's United Nations envoy, Vassily Nebenzia, read out a quote from President Vladimir Putin accusing the allies of "cynical disdain" in acting without waiting for the results of a chemical watchdog investigation into the Douma incident. While he declared success, the Pentagon said the pummeling of three chemical-related facilities left enough others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against civilians if it chooses. He accused the allies of violating the U.N. Charter and global law.

Haley said that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished. "To some it said, well, Bush thinks the war in Iraq is over, when I didn't think that".

Khatib said she doesn't believe most Canadians are aware of the true scale of the human rights atrocities that are striking her home country.

Haley went on to say Russian Federation is continuing to be involved with the "wrong actors" adding U.S. - Russian Federation relations are "very strained".

He argued that Britain could "simply stay" in the European Union if the exit deal was rejected in a fresh referendum . But, Trudeau said they can go beyond that agreement for "an even better or larger or more impactful deal".

"We disagree with anyone bombing our country no matter what the reason is", he said in a phone interview.

On the 15-member council only China and Bolivia voted in favour of Russia's resolution. That's the last thing the President wanted was war.

And Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Arizona Democrat running for Senate, backed the strikes as an important message "that the use of these heinous weapons will not be tolerated", but later said Trump now must "work with Congress to develop a clear, unified and effective strategy to end the conflict in Syria". But Sen. Tim Kaine, a safer Virginia Democrat who is running for reelection in 2018, blasted Trump's decision to strike Syria without congressional approval.

"We have seen as a pattern in the world today is actors who behave in a reprehensible manner, then can be quite clever in trying to muddy the waters and in trying to dodge responsibility", she added.

"The Syrian government tried to defend and shoot at the missiles, but of course the technology is very different there", said Mercho. More than 100 precision missiles targeted a scientific research center near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a storage facility and command post near Homs.

Rescuers and medics have said the alleged attack killed more than 40 people, but Damascus and Moscow have dismissed the reports as "fabrications".

The Syrian military said three civilians were wounded in one of the strikes in Homs.

They have been tasked with investigating the site of the alleged April 7 attack in the town of Douma, just east of the capital Damascus, which Western powers said involved chlorine and sarin and killed dozens.

The focus will be in Douma, and the visit by the OPCW inspectors.

"The United States and its allies have no proof and, without even waiting for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to take a position, have carried out this military attack. and are responsible for the regional consequences", said foreign ministry spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi.
