President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the United States military — in conjunction with France and the United Kingdom — to launch strikes on Syria in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad on a Damascus suburb last week.
The president said the U.S. would aim to hit sites “associated with the chemical weapons capabilities” of Assad’s regime.
“We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents,” Trump said in remarks from the White House, adding that the U.S. and its allies had “marshaled their righteous power.”
Trump urged Iran and Russia to withdraw their support for what he called Syria’s “barbarism and brutality.”
In a direct address to the two countries, he asked, “What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men and women and children?”
