    Some 50 US Tomahawk cruise missiles have been allegedly launched at a Syrian military airfield near the western city of Homs, NBC and Reuters reported, citing US military officials.

    US ships stationed in the Mediterranean Sea reportedly launched the strike on Syria’s Shayrat airbase on Thursday night local time.

    US President Donald Trump spoke from his Mar-a-Lago resort following the airstrikes, accusing Syrian President Bashar Assad of using nerve gas that killed civilians in Idlib.

    Calling it a “targeted military strike,” Trump said the Homs airfield was where the chemical gas attack earlier this week originated from.

    Trump described the attack as defending a "vital national security interest" and called upon "civilized nations" to help end the "slaughter and bloodshed in Syria."

    NBC News reported that there was no word on casualties and that no people were allegedly targeted. Russian forces were reportedly warned ahead of time.

    The airfield was allegedly targeted after the US blamed the Syrian military for the chemical incident in Idlib, in which dozens of civilians died from suspected gas poisoning in the rebel-occupied territory. Up to 86 people, including 26 children, are alleged to have been killed. Several Western states have immediately pinned the blame on Assad’s forces, while Russia said Syrian jets bombed a warehouse where chemical weapons were being produced.

    VERIFIED TRANSCRIPT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S REMARKS THURSDAY NIGHT ON TARGETED MILITARY STRIKE IN SYRIA:


         My fellow Americans:  On Tuesday, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians.  Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women, and children.  It was a slow and brutal death for so many.  Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack.  No child of God should ever suffer such horror.

         Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched.  It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention, and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council.  

    Years of previous attempts at changing Assad's behavior have all failed, and failed very dramatically.  As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.  

    Tonight, I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.  We ask for God's wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world.  We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed.  And we hope that as long as America stands for justice, then peace and harmony will, in the end, prevail.  

    Goodnight.  And God bless America and the entire world.  Thank you.

    Pentagon confirms it warned Russia over conflict hotline

    Posted at22:38

    Pentagon Spokesman Captain Jeff Davis issued a statement in which he confirmed that US officials warned Russian counterparts ahead of the strikes over a "deconfliction line".  

    Here's an excerpt from his statement, and 

    The strike was conducted using Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAMs) launched from the destroyers USS Porter and USS Ross in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.  A total of 59 TLAMs targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars.   As always, the U.S. took extraordinary measures to avoid civilian casualties and to comply with the Law of Armed Conflict.  Every precaution was taken to execute this strike with minimal risk to personnel at the airfield.

    The strike was a proportional response to Assad's heinous act. Shayrat Airfield was used to store chemical weapons and Syrian air forces.  The U.S. intelligence community assesses that aircraft from Shayrat conducted the chemical weapons attack on April 4.  The strike was intended to deter the regime from using chemical weapons again. 

    Russian forces were notified in advance of the strike using the established deconfliction line.  U.S. military planners took precautions to minimize risk to Russian or Syrian personnel located at the airfield.

    Homs governor says U.S. strikes on Syria serve 'goals of terrorism'


    US missile strikes on Syrian military positions serve the goals of "armed terrorist groups" and Islamic State, the governor of Syria's Homs province has said, Reuters reports.
     
    "Syrian leadership and Syrian policy will not change," Homs governor Talal Barazi said in a phone interview with state television. "This targeting was not the first and I don't believe it will be the last," he added.

    Bolivia has requested an emergency UN Security Council meeting to be held behind closed doors on Friday to discuss the US missile attack against Syria, a senior Security Council diplomat told Reuters.


    03:48 GMT

    US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Washington did not contact the Russian leadership or “any other level within Russian infrastructure” before conducting the airstrike on the Syrian base.

    “No contacts were made with Moscow, with President Putin,” Tillerson told reporters at Mar-a-Lago.

    03:30 GMT

    The American attack against Syria came a day after its UN envoy, Nikki Haley, threatened unilateral action against Damascus unless the UN Security Council acted collectively on the alleged attack. The US and its allies Britain and France wanted the UNSC to pass a resolution blaming the Syrian government for the incident. Russia opposed it, saying a proper investigation was necessary before blame could be assigned in the case.

    03:25 GMT

    Tillerson added that the US had a high degree of confidence that sarin gas was used in the alleged chemical attack. He didn’t offer an explanation of why the people responding to the incident were apparently not affected by sarin despite not wearing any protection gear, as footage released by the activists suggests.

    Trump: Syria strikes in 'vital national security interest' of US

    Donald Trump has said America's missile strikes on a Syrian air base were in "the vital national security interest" of the US.

    In a brief statement, the President urged civilised nations to seek an end to the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria.

    Mr Trump warned the US was determined to "prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly weapons".

    He said there was "no dispute" that the Syrian government had used banned chemical weapons during this week's attack in Idlib, which killed more than 80 people - including many children.

    Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), who recently visited Syria on a fact-finding mission and introduced a bill intended to stop US from arming terrorists, condemned the airstrikes as strengthening Al-Qaeda.

    “It angers and saddens me that President Trump has taken the advice of war hawks and escalated our illegal regime change war to overthrow the Syrian government,” Gabbard said in a statement.

    “This escalation is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaeda and other terrorists, and a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russia.”

    US lawmakers have been sharply divided on President Donald Trump’s decision to order a missile strike without consulting lawmakers.
    Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has criticized the decision, saying that the incursion is hardly justified given the past experiences of the US in the Middle East.

    “Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer and Syria will be no different,” Paul wrote on Twitter.

    Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu sided with Paul, pointing that “attacking the Assad regime requires congressional approval,” as opposed to the actions that are carried out “in defense of the US.”

    Hillary Clinton’s former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine took a similar stance, calling Trump’s decision to go war unilaterally “unconstitutional” and “unlawful.”

    Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) argued that if the issue was not urgently debated in Congress it would mean the “abdication of our responsibility.”

    Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who used to voice highly critical opinions on Trump, praised him this time, saying that Trump “deserves the support of the American people” as he "confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action.”

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) also commended Trump.
    “The action in Syria was appropriate and just,” he wrote on Twitter.

    Putin believes US attack on Syria violates international law – spokesman

    President Putin “regards the strikes as aggression against a sovereign nation,” his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, noting that the president believes the strikes were carried out “in violation of international law, and also under an invented pretext.”

    Peskov also insisted that “the Syrian army doesn’t have chemical weapons,”saying this had been “observed and confirmed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, a special UN unit.”

    Putin sees the US missile strike on Syria as an attempt to distract attention from civilian casualties in Iraq, Peskov added.

    “This step deals significant damage to US-Russian ties, which are already in a deplorable state,” Peskov said.

    Hours before American missiles hit the Syrian airbase, deputy permanent representative of Russia at the UN Vladimir Safronkov said Russia was getting direct signals about an imminent US military operation in Syria and is surprised that no one is thinking of the consequences.

    "For you, journalists, and for us, diplomats, it is no secret that all these discussing in the UN Security Council are happening at the same time with the hype about the upcoming military operation. We're getting direct signals that such military operation is being prepared.

    "Moreover, what suprises most of all, is that no one is wondering about potential consequences."

    Turkey switching sides again?..

    08:35 GMT

    Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has urged Assad to step down and called for a transitional government to be established.

    “It is necessary to oust this regime as soon as possible from the leadership of Syria,” Cavusoglu said, as cited by Reuters.

    “If he doesn’t want to go, if there is no transition government, and if he continues committing humanitarian crimes, the necessary steps to oust him should be taken,” he added.

    Farage doesn't support pal Trump's airstrikes

    Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage tells the Press Association: "I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying 'where will it all end?'

    "As a firm Trump supporter, I say, yes, the pictures were horrible, but I'm surprised. Whatever Assad's sins, he is secular."

    Mr Farage urged Britain not to get involved in any further strikes, saying: "Previous interventions in the Middle East have made things worse rather than better."

    Russia suspends flight safety memorandum over Syria after US missile strike – Foreign Ministry


    Russia has suspended the memorandum of understanding on flight safety in Syria with the United States amid the US missile strike on Syria’s Shayrat military airfield, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement.

    “Without bothering to investigate anything, the US went forward with a demonstration of force, a military confrontation with a country that is fighting international terrorism,” the Foreign Ministry’s statement reads.

    The US launched some 60 Tomahawk missiles at the Syrian military airbase in the Homs governorate early on Friday. The attack came after US President Donald Trump pinned the blame for an alleged chemical attack in Idlib on Syria’s government.

    “Obviously, the cruise missile attack was prepared beforehand. Any expert can tell that the decision to strike was made in Washington before the events in Idlib, which were used as a pretext for a demonstration,” the statement reads.

    The Memorandum on air safety was signed in October 2015, after Russia came to Syria to fight international terrorism at the invitation of the country’s government. The document of understanding was designed to prevent possible mishaps between the Russian and US Air Forces operating independently in the region.

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry has condemned the attack as an example of the “reckless attitude” that has only worsened “existing world issues”and created a “threat to international security.”

    Grateful Syrians React To Trump Strike: 'I'll Name My Son Donald'

    The responses within the United States were mixed: some praised the president for the decisive action they've longed for under a feckless "red-line"-drawing President Obama; others viewed the strike as a buckle to the "neo-cons," sure to spur war with Russia. The responses in between involve real questions concerning constitutionality and the next steps of the administration. 

    The Syrian people who were tormented by their own government, though, were united in a response: Thank you, President Trump.

    US MISSILE STRIKE IN SYRIA ‘ON BRINK OF MILITARY CLASH WITH RUSSIA’ – PM MEDVEDEV


    14:29 GMT

    The US missile strike violated not only international, but also US laws, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said, adding that the attack “was on the brink of military clashes with Russia.”

    “Instead of their much-publicized thesis about a joint fight with a common enemy, Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL], the Trump administration has proven that it will fiercely fight against the legal government of Syria,” Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page.

    Kremlin warns the US it is 'on the verge of a military clash with Russia' as President Trump says he will hit Syria AGAIN after his attack on Putin's ally Assad triggers new fears of World War Three


    Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev denounced Donald Trump for attacking ‘the legitimate government of Syria’ and for allegedly breaking international law without the approval of the UN. The US President warned he would do it again after unleashing a surprise attack on the Syrian regime with a massive show of firepower. In the first direct American raid on Bashar al Assad’s forces, Mr Trump authorised the firing of 59 cruise missiles at a military airfield. Officials said it was retaliation for Assad’s use of chemical weapons and would ‘deter’ further atrocities. The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said that her country had taken ‘a very measured step’. She added: ‘We are prepared to do more but we hope that will not be necessary.’

    Was it really sarin, was Assad to blame and could Western spy agencies be involved? Historian and terrorism expert MICHAEL BURLEIGH answers key questions about Syrian airstrikes


    Was sarin gas actually used in Tuesday’s attack?

    The evidence for sarin use largely comes from reports from Turkish doctors treating survivors of the Syria attack.

    Victims in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun were choking, foaming at the mouth, defecating and vomiting – all of which is consistent with sarin use.

    Sarin, a colourless, odourless liquid at room temperature, is expensive and complex to manufacture.

    The two key chemical compounds – a phosphorus variant and isopropyl alcohol – are mixed near the point of use, usually hours before it is released.

    This is to avoid accidents and degradation in storage. The level of sophistication required in handling sarin would suggest state involvement.

    Syrian president Bashar al-Assad was supposed to have surrendered his entire chemical weapons stockpile – including sarin – to Russia after an earlier attack on an opposition-held area near Damascus in 2013. More than 1,000 victims died and only a Russian-brokered deal – with Assad agreeing to give up his chemical weapons for destruction – prevented US air strikes then. According to some reports, a consignment of sarin was missing from the stockpile handed over.

    Why would Assad use chemical weapons in a war he’s winning?

    This is indeed a perplexing question. Since September 2015, when the Russians first intervened in Syria, Assad’s regime has made steady progress in defeating various rebel opponents, notably when his forces took Aleppo in December.

    In recent days the US has strongly suggested it was prepared to leave Assad in power, as it saw him as a potential ally in the fight against Islamic State. Syria’s military has categorically denied it was responsible for the attack.  


    If not Assad, then who was it and why?

    Charges of using chemical weapons are a very useful propaganda tool to blacken the reputation of any opponent, however dark already. Conspiracy theorists will see various nefarious hands at work.

    The Russians, who back Assad’s regime, claim the Syrian air force bombed chemical munitions held by rebel forces in a warehouse, which then exploded. Another claim is that it was a gas manufacturing plant.

    Could Western spy agencies be involved?

    Some of the more outlandish conspiracy theories suggest that Western intelligence forces, such as the CIA, might have been responsible for the gas attack – possibly as a way of distracting from the Trump administration’s alleged Russian links.

    Certainly, Russia has responded to the air strikes on Syria with some tough talk. But this speculation owes more to spy fiction than fact.

    Trump to Congress on Syria strike: US to take additional action to further its national interests



    US President Donald Trump has sent a letter to the US Congress, informing them about the US missile strike against the Syrian Air Force base, and stating that the US will take additional action to further the country’s national interests, the White House said Saturday.

    In a letter to the US Congress on Saturday, President Donald Trump explained his decision to launch an attack on the Shayrat Airbase in Syria, claiming he was acting to avert a “humanitarian catastrophe.”

    “United States intelligence indicates that Syrian military forces operating from this airfield were responsible for the chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians in southern Idlib Province, Syria, that occurred on April 4,” Trump wrote in the letter.

    "I directed this action in order to degrade the Syrian military's ability to conduct further chemical weapons attacks and to dissuade the Syrian regime from using or proliferating chemical weapons, thereby promoting the stability of the region and averting a worsening of the region's current humanitarian catastrophe."

    'I didn't see you raising your voice against President Obama's inaction': Syrian chemical attack victim hits out at CNN host Brooke Baldwin for trying to make him criticise Trump

    Kassam Eid lashed out at CNN host Brooke Baldwin for being a 'hypocrite'  She asked him what he thought about Trump's refugee ban in reference to his recent attack on Syria Eid survived a 2013 chemical attack on Syria, and praised the President's actionHe said Syrians don't want  to be  

    A Syrian man lashed out after being asked by a CNN reporter to criticize Donald Trump's refugee ban. 

    Anchor Brooke Baldwin attempted to make a point about acceptance of refugees while talking to Kassam Eid, who survived a 2013 chemical attack on Syria.

    Eid praised the President's action in firing missiles at Bashar al-Assad in retaliation for chemical attacks against his citizens on Tuesday. 

    Speaking about the chemical attack and the President's actions, Baldwin said: 'Clearly President Trump was motivated, as we all have compassion for these just horrible images of these babies who were killed.'

    She continued: 'At the same time, this is a man who doesn't want Syrians to come to this country with this refugee ban'.

    To make her point, she played a clip in which Hillary Clinton says that the President should be more accepting of refugees. 

    She says: 'We cannot, in one breath, speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next, close America's doors to them'. 

    Eid, however, seemed to think that Clinton was completely missing the mark. 

    'With all due respect,' he began, 'I didn't see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban, I didn't see you three days ago when people were gassed to death. 

    'I didn't see you in 2013. I didn't see you raising your voice against President Obama's inaction in Syria that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria. 

    'If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please help us stay in our country.

    ‘Low efficiency’: Only 23 Tomahawk missiles out of 59 reached Syrian airfield, Russian MoD says

    The Russian Defense Ministry says the US missile strike on a Syrian airfield wasn't very effective, with only 23 out of 59 Tomahawk missiles reaching their target. The locations of the remaining 36 missiles’ impact is now unknown, the ministry added.

    It could cost about $60 million to replace the cruise missiles that the U.S. military rained on Syrian targets Thursday night.

    Each Tomahawk missile, made by Raytheon Co. RTN, +1.47% likely cost $1 million, according to experts.

    The U.S. used 59 of them on a Syrian air base in response to the Syrian government’s chemical-weapons attack that killed scores of civilians earlier this week.

    Raytheon referred questions around costs to the U.S. Navy’s unmanned aviation and strike weapons program, which did not immediately return a request for comment.

    There's a terrifying sense of deja vu as the Generals take over the White House and guide us towards another war (despite no-one knowing if it was Assad who used sarin on those civilians) says JOHN R BRADLEY

    There is a terrifying sense of deja vu as another ‘Coalition of the Willing’ gears upThat's a worst-case interpretation of comments made by US ambassador to UNNikki Haley said that removing President Bashar al-Assad was now a ‘priority’

    For those of us who covered the build-up to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, there is a terrifying sense of deja vu as another ‘Coalition of the Willing’ gears up to launch a potentially devastating wave of shock-and-awe in the Middle East.

    That is certainly one worst-case interpretation of the comments made yesterday by the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley. 

    Confirming a remarkable U-turn in the Trump administration’s stance on Syria, she said that removing President Bashar al-Assad was now a ‘priority’.

    Fourteen years ago we heard similar shrill calls from political leaders for regime change in Iraq, a country that – whether or not it used chemical weapons on its own people – posed no discernible threat to the national security of our own. 

    We now know the intelligence reports on Iraqi ‘weapons of mass destruction’ were fabricated. The spin and lies used to dupe us were scripted for the simpleton in the White House, George W. Bush, and his smooth-talking British underling Tony Blair. 

    And we know that the authors of the nonsense they peddled were neo-conservative war hawks determined to invade Iraq at any cost.

    The legacy of that illegal war continues to cause almost unimaginable mayhem and bloodshed throughout the region. 

    It gave rise to Islamic State and its self-declared Caliphate, which has brought the carnage of their global jihad not only to the Middle East but to the streets of Britain, Europe, the US and beyond.

    It is shocking, therefore, that so many are taking as gospel the word of politicians, military officials and experts about the identity of those who were behind last week’s chemical weapon attack in the Syrian province of Idlib.

  • Wasn't it last year that North Korea launched a satellite that began tumbling when it reached orbit.  The North Koreans said they had lost control of it but it's still up there, orbiting the earth at an altitude of 295 miles.  The orbit also goes right over the geographic center of the U.S.

    A hemp device, detonated at an altitude of 300 miles over the geographic center of the U.S. would wipe out pretty much all unshielded electronics in America.  Coincidence?

    It makes one wonder, "Who would end up sucking the wet end of the rope if the U.S. launches an attack"?

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.
