"It is such a great Military term, it should be brought back", he wrote. "There won't be anything, or anyone, even close!"

US, British and French forces struck Syria with more than 100 missiles yesterday in the first coordinated Western strikes against the Damascus government, targeting what they said were chemical weapons sites in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack.

"A perfectly executed strike last night". The Bush administration said the banner was meant to signify the end of the Lincoln's 10-month mission in the Persian Gulf.

The First Lady also tweeted a thank you to USA troops on Saturday morning.

As far as USA law is concerned, members of Congress are divided.

The U.S. strikes likely successfully degraded Syrian chemical weapons capabilities. We hit the sites, the heart of the chemical weapons program. "So it was a mission accomplished".

"It shows, look we have all the western countries gathering against us but we are still able to be victorious", he said.

The Pentagon also said that it was not aware of any civilian causalities at the time. "There's no point in keeping a dictator killing his own people for seven years, forcibly displacing them, demographically changing the country, creating the worst refugee crisis since World War II".

French officials said its military had fired at least 12 missiles into Syria, and that they believe none of their missiles was intercepted. "He spoke highly of Russian weapons, which turned out to be superior to the aggressors' weapons", Zheleznyak said.

Senior US officials expressed confidence Saturday that both chlorine and sarin gas were used in Syria's alleged chemical weapons attack on the Damascus enclave of Douma last week - a conclusion that went a step further than Vice President Mike Pence did in his remarks earlier Saturday.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White defended Trump's victory lap at a Saturday briefing. "Therefore, we will keep you all abreast of the facts moving forward". The United States, Britain, and France hit three targets in the country, including the capital of Damascus, in what Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called a "one-time shot".

"Strikes by US, France and United Kingdom make it clear that Syrian regime together with Russian Federation and Iran can not continue this human tragedy, at least not without cost".

"With yesterday's military action, our message was crystal clear".

"I was grateful that we can get rid of this major disaster", Dr. Banna said. The White House has since given out that it was guided by news reports and reports by other sources (probably NGOs) in accusing Bashar al-Assad. The U.S. war there dragged on for eight more years.

Russian Federation has called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, and is considering supplying new S-300 missile systems to its ally Syria - which it recently declined to do so, under pressure from the West.
