Syria strikes send 'clear message' on chemical weapons: British PM

  • Syria air strikes US President Donald Trump said the Syrian regime attacks

Four Royal Air Force Tornado GR4s joined the co-ordinated missile strikes at 2am, launching Storm Shadow missiles at a base 15 miles west of Homs.

Mr Johnson said Mrs May will be making a statement in the House of Commons on Monday and it will give parliamentarians a chance to hold the executive to account.

In a statement, the party says there are fresh questions over the Government's legal justification and the need to allow the OPCW (Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) to fully investigate the chemical attacks in Douma last weekend.

"This is not about intervening in a civil war".

"We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or anywhere else in our world", she said. It is not about regime change.

Donald Trump has announced that a coalition of America, Britain and France have begun airstrikes against the Syrian regime to punish its chemical attack that killed more than 70 people.

The air strikes, carried out by the US, UK and French military, targeted three separate targets in Syria linked to the Assad regime's chemical weapons program.

May said the strikes would "send a clear signal to anyone else who believes they can use chemical weapons with impunity".

"Theresa May needs to realise that she leads a minority government and that Parliament must have a voice in matters of such importance before actions like that are taken".

911 operator suspended over teen's death griped about working overtime
The teen's death has been ruled accidental from asphyxia due to chest compression. "This matter is very disturbing", Black said. In May 2017, Smith wrote a post "venting" about how working overtime makes her and her co-workers "hate our job". "That's all.


But she also drew a link with the nerve agent attack on Russian former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury.

"It is in our national interest to prevent the further use of chemical weapons in Syria - and to uphold and defend the global consensus that these weapons should not be used".

Williamson told BBC radio that all British crews returned safely and early indications were that the strikes had been "highly successful".

"So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian Regime".

"There is broad based worldwide support for the action we have taken", she will say.

British lawmakers voted down taking military action against Damascus in 2013, in what was widely viewed as an assertion of parliamentary sovereignty on the use of force. These are not the actions of a man, they are crimes of a monster instead. "The opposition does not operate helicopters or use barrel bombs".

"Where is the legal basis for this?" he said.

Vince Cable, leader of the Liberal Democrats, said: "Riding the coattails of an erratic U.S. president is no substitute for a mandate from the House of Commons".
