Despite a U.S. -Russian agreement to completely eliminate Syria's chemical weapons program after hundreds of people were gassed with sarin in Ghouta on August 21, 2013, the OPCW had been unable to verify that all manufacturing, storage and research facilities were destroyed.

The Russian military also claimed Syria shot down the cruise missiles that were launched at a Syrian air base. "And so he made a point, and hopefully Assad gets it".

Assad was determined "to butcher his way" to an overwhelming victory and only the Russians could pressure him to come to the negotiating table in Geneva, Johnson said.

There has also been debate over how the missiles fared across the sky. "We are confident that all of our missiles reached their targets".

Worldwide leaders have been reacting to Friday night's air strike in Syria.

He said: "So far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish to launch another chemical weapons attack", adding that Britain and its allies "would study what the options were" in the event of another attack.

Haley told Fox News, "If Assad doesn't get it" after Saturday's barrage of 105 missiles fired by the U.S., Britain and France at three Syrian chemical weapons facilities, "it's going to hurt".

The ambassador bristled, however, at host Chris Wallace's question if the United States had a zero tolerance policy against the use of chemical weapons, why it did not have one against Syria's use of conventional weapons against civilians.

"Attacking innocent civilians in Syria with chemical weapons is a gross violation of humanity and utterly immoral", stated IDC's Executive Director Philippe Nassif on April 12th.

"We did not do any coordination with Russian Federation on these strikes, and neither did we pre-notify them", Marine General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Friday night.

Russian Federation denounced the attacks as aggression against its ally, but there was no sign of an immediate military response. "It's another example of USA imperial expansion in the Middle East", said Gordon Barnes, an adjunct lecturer at Queens College, City University of NY.

Trump's remarks on Twitter are reminiscent of President George W. Bush's 2003 speech announcing an end to major combat operations in Iraq on the on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, with a big sign that read, "Mission Accomplished" in the backdrop. She said that the missile strikes should be expanded. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

He accused the "fake news media" of seizing on the term to demean the strikes, carried out in response to an alleged Syrian chemical weapons attack.

"Mission Accomplished!" The targets included a scientific research facility near Damascus, and two chemical weapons facilities outside the city of Homs, the USA military said, though reports said the buildings had been evacuated in recent days.Syrian state media reported only three people injured, while Russia's defense ministry said there were "no victims" among Syrian civilians and military personnel.According to U.S. officials, the operation involved three U.S. destroyers, a French frigate and a USA submarine.
