Syrian-Americans worry for families after Trump orders airstrikes

Syrian Air Defenses respond to 'missile attack' on airbase in Homs – state media

President Bashar al-Assad's government called the chemical attack reports "fabricated".

The White House said the president holds Syria and its ally Russian Federation "responsible" for the suspected chemical attack in Douma and that "all options" were being considered for retaliation. But in New Jersey, some Syrian-Americans feared that the airstrikes would lead to more civilian deaths and a widening of the conflict in Syria.

Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, said the allied airstrikes "took out the heart" of Assad's chemical weapons arsenal.

Shanawani said she had been unable to reach her family in Damascus on Friday night via phone or social media and that she felt "angry" and "disappointed".

Gen. Dunford said one target in the strike was a scientific research center located in the greater Damascus area - a center for research, development and testing of "chemical and biological warfare technology". "Enough is enough. A million people already died". Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that tied down USA forces for years.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday the National Security Council would meet and that decisions on Syria will be made "soon".

Trump on Wednesday even went as far as suggesting that missiles aimed at Syria "will be coming", though no such strike has been publicly announced.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement that she "authorized British armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use".

But this year, should the United States and allies like Britain, France and others from the Middle East launch strikes on Syria, the government could have more time to prepare itself.

One video shared by activists showed bodies of about a dozen children, women and men, some with foam at the mouth.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites.

But on Thursday, Trump tweeted: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

"If really our president would like to do something about Syria, he should stop showing off and stop the empty threatening of Assad", said Khairullah, who left Syria in 1992.

Cafarella said the United States must decide how far it wants to go in terms of hitting Iranian proxy forces near USA positions in eastern Syria, or even targeting Russian-supported facilities.

"You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it".

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke to Trump by telephone and the two agreed they would work together to establish clear responsibility for what Macron's office said they had agreed was a confirmed chemical attack.

Others noted that diplomatic and military interventions fell flat over the years as atrocities piled up.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian also spoke with reporters Saturday morning, saying that the operation was created to target the Assad regime for its use of chemical weapons, and not Syrian civilians or Syrian allies.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders insisted on Wednesday that a missile strike remains one of the many options on the table and said the President's tweet does not complicate the planning of a US response.

According to the agency, the attack has "probably" been carried out by the United States. Russian Federation and Syria blamed Israel for the strikes.

Shanawani said it would be better "if they sit down and agree with each other and talk about it". "But our efforts have been repeatedly thwarted" by Syria and Russian Federation, she said.
