The then-president stood before a massive banner that read "Mission Accomplished", though US troops had actually been deployed in the area just a month before.

That phrase, last owned by George W. Bush after invading Iraq, has aged badly.

Beirut:Hours after a punishing US-led missile strike, Syria's President Bashar al-Assad, dressed in a dark suit and tie, strode through the gates of his palace to start his day as usual.

The Pentagon has said the strikes successfully hit the three chemical weapons facilities which were targeted.

Haley has been one of the strongest voices accusing Russian Federation of enabling the Syrian government in its use of chemical weapons in the civil war that is now in its seventh year. A senior Russian military official said on Saturday that Syria's air defences, which mostly consist of systems made in the former Soviet Union, had intercepted 71 of the 105 American, British and French missiles.

"This was not about interfering in a civil war".

Johnson told the BBC on Sunday the airstrikes were proportionate and showed "the world has said enough is enough".

But it does little to help most Syrians escape the hell they continue to live, or to encourage novel thinking about how to end the country's multiple wars.

On Saturday, the Syrian army said the regime had retaken all of Eastern Ghouta after the last rebels left Douma.

"Such a strategy is not just about deterrence and disablement". They also called the attack an impediment to peace.

But the real levers in Syria remain firmly in Russian hands.

Haley has been one of the administration's sharpest critics of Russian Federation, particularly with regard to its relationship with Syria.

But the occasional skirmishes between the archenemies might at some stage prove too combustible to contain. The U.S., he said, didn't want to oust Assad because he was a dictator - most U.S. allies in the region are led by dictators. Iran has vowed to respond. "They went out to destroy critical chemical weapons infrastructure in Syria, and they did exactly that".

Saudi king slams Iran 'interference' as Arab leaders meet
Saudi officials have welcomed Malaysia's participation in Gulf Shield 1, the biggest joint military exercise in the Arab region. This year's summit was even more important than the usual ones, in such a delicate moment for the war in Syria.

Despite Trump's "mission accomplished" declaration, US officials acknowledge Syrian forces may still have more such weapons at hand.

"They will strike again I'm sure, but it won't change a thing". She said that the missile strikes should be expanded.

The White House says the leaders agreed the airstrikes in Syria "were successful and necessary to deter" the future use of chemical weapons.

"This was very strong attack on the chemical weapons program", she said.

"The use of sarin and nerve agent past year in fact did reinforce such suspicions".

American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley listens as Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Ja'afari speaks after a vote on a resolution during a Security Council meeting on the situation in Syria, Saturday, April 14, 2018 at United Nations headquarters.

The meeting came a day after US -led strikes, launched together with Britain and France, hit three Syrian chemical weapons facilities. He added that Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over.

Putin told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, also an Assad ally, that any new Western strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos in global relations".

The Russian government accused the United Kingdom of staging the attack, which the British government says is "ludicrous".

Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research lab, but also of Assad arriving at work as usual, with the caption "morning of resilience" and there were no immediate reports of casualties.

Some Russians threatened to burn Trump in effigy. And on the night they were told via deconfliction channels not to get in the way.

"This was a pantomime anyway".
