If Trump draws red line, he enforces it: Nikki Haley warns Syria

Trump US launched strikes on Syria

The U.S., France and Britain launched over 100 missiles in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.

Syrian activists said more than 40 people were killed but Syria and Russian Federation deny the attack and Russian Federation even accused Britain of staging the attack.

Haley said Trump told her the U.S.is "locked and loaded" should the Syrian government continue to launch chemical weapons attacks against civilians.

President Donald Trump has warned Syria's government the U.S. is "locked and loaded" to strike again if it carries out new chemical attacks. He added, "So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had".

Syrian allies, Iran and Russian Federation have condemned the action, with Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov insisting the chemical attack was staged, and claiming the West can't prove otherwise.

Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie said: 'We believe that by hitting Barzeh, in particular, we've attacked the heart of the Syrian chemicals weapon programme'.

Putin and Iran have maintained their support for Assad despite his continued use of chemical weapons, which Russian Federation said it would stop in 2013. Defensive effort of Syria was ineffective, he said.

On Saturday, the UN Security Council overwhelmingly rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of "aggression" by the three allies.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley addresses the UN Security Council on Syria during a meeting of the Council at UN headquarters in NY on March 12, 2018.

The joint operation was in response to a suspected chemical attack in the city of Douma last week.

In conjunction with British and French soldiers, the US military carried out the strikes on three sites, a scientific research center near Damascus and two chemical weapons storage facilities near Homs.

In a UN Security Council session Saturday, American UN Ambassador Nikki Haley warned that the U.S. was "locked and loaded" to take aim at Syria again if Assad uses chemical weapons again.

And, Syrians danced in the street as a show of defiance against the United States.

'I appeal again to all the political leaders, so that justice and peace prevail, ' he said in his weekly address to the faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square.

Nikki Haley said: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

"Algeria can only regret the strikes", Ouyahia told reporters.

In a news conference that took place on Saturday morning Pentagon Chief officials said they can't speculate on what will happen next.

In an indication that the West, too, would prefer to lower tensions, the United States and Britain both reiterated that their military action on Saturday was not aimed at Assad, Putin's ally, only at his use of chemical weapons. "We've spent a week talking about the unique horror of chemical weapons".
