Benefits to U.S. from rejoining pact, but talks may be fraught

During President Obama's term, Trump criticized Obama for publicly announcing USA military plans on Syria. "Providing a deterrence against the continued use of these weapons is in the vital national security interest of the United States, and I pray that our men and women of the armed forces execute their mission safely tonight".

Shortly after Trump's announcement, a statement from UK Prime Minister Theresa May said she had authorized British forces to conduct "coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability".

Washington described its targets as a centre near Damascus for the research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons, a chemical weapons storage site near the city of Homs, and another site near Homs that stored chemical weapons equipment and housed a command post.

Amnesty International warned that the strikes should minimise harm to civilians and urged President Trump to take in Syrian refugees.

Russian officials condemned the USA -led airstrikes on three sites in Syria early Saturday, calling the attacks "treacherous and insane" and a "clear and present danger to world peace".

We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or anywhere else in our world. He described the main aim as establishing "a strong deterrent" against chemical weapons use.

Explosions lit up the skies over Damascus, the Syrian capital, as Trump spoke from the White House. "To Iran and to Russian Federation, I ask, what kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"

The speaker said Trump could use existing authorization, which was approved after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.

His Australian counterpart, Steve Ciobo, said the U.S.is welcome to rejoin the agreement, but added: "Let's also be clear, I think there's very little appetite among the TPP 11 countries for there to be any meaningful renegotiation or indeed any substantial renegotiation of the TPP 11 at all". If the US does take part, the pact would encompass 40 percent of global production and one-third of world trade.

France's defence minister said its joint military operation with the USA and Britain against Syria targeted three sites and that Russian Federation was informed before the strikes.

Trump had remained sharply critical of the pact and said that he would instead negotiate trade agreements one on one, a tactic he says gives the United States better leverage over its trading partners. That could pose a challenge to the White House because these members may resist any USA -endorsed changes at this stage of the process.

Britain's defense ministry said that while the effectiveness of the strike is still being analyzed, "initial indications are that the precision of the Storm Shadow weapons and meticulous target planning have resulted in a successful attack".

Following the horrors of World War I a century ago, civilized nations joined together to ban chemical warfare. Gardner mentioned on Friday Trump experienced vowed to sign into law a bill that could codify states' legal rights to set their own bud laws.

"America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria".

Mr Trump's top economic adviser Larry Kudlow said in an interview on Thursday with The New York Times that the request to revisit the deal was somewhat spontaneous. "We look forward to the day we can bring our warriors home, and great warriors they are".
