Photos show how the USA missile strike on Syria unfolded

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Judge Neil Gorsuch in East Room of the White House in Washington as he announces Grouch as his nominee for the Supreme Court. With Gorsuch on the verge of confirmation

On August 31, 2013, Trump tweeted: "If Obama attacks Syria and innocent civilians are hurt and killed, he and the US will look very bad!"

A suspected chemical attack took place in Syria this week. "We hope there are not many victims and martyrs". Military operations notwithstanding, the Trump policy will look more like the Obama approach than many people now expect.

He called the attack that nearly destroyed Shayrat military base near Homs, in the country's west, "a pity", suggesting the US President had been pressured into the act by the Pentagon. There is no upside and tremendous downside. "We should welcome Tillerson, exchange views and try and talk sense into Washington", Leonid Slutsky told the Russian Federation 24 television channel, Interfax reported. "We've caught them using chemical weapons and gases elsewhere, and this latest incident in which almost 100 people seem to have been killed is yet another example of, if action is not taken, innocent civilians are going to die at the hands of this appalling gas".

Trump is a kind of open book because of his constant presence on social media.

The joint statement came after the United States fired missiles at a Syrian airbase from which it said a deadly chemical weapons attack was launched this week.




"The US cruise missile strikes have seen crude oil jump over two percent in a straight line", said Jeffrey Halley of futures brokerage OANDA in Singapore, as quoted by Reuters.

In an address to the nation, US President Donald Trump said he had ordered a "targeted military strike on an airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched". Even lovely babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. "Japan supports the USA government's determination to prevent the spread and use of chemical weapons", he said.

Trump's action has, however, angered Russian Federation which is fighting against the rebels along with Assad's forces in Syria. The official also said that there were no Russian aircraft at the base, nor was there any indication that Syria had detected incoming missiles before the strike.

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry statement continued, "Egypt is following with great concern the repercussions and consequences of the chemical weapons attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun, which led to the death of dozens of innocent Syrian civilians by internationally banned weapons".
