Just over a year ago U.S. President Donald Trump ordered a missile strike against the Syrian government for a chemical weapons attack against its own people. The stated goal of America's military presence in Syria remains the defeat of the Islamic State.

A former officer in Syria's chemical program, Adulsalam Abdulrazek, mentioned Saturday the joint U.S., British, and French strikes hit "components of however not the center" of this system.

The Pentagon said Syria fired 40 surface-to-air missiles, but most were launched after the damage was done. Speaking on French television BFM and online site Mediapart, Macron stressed that the French diplomacy is able to talk with Iran, Russia and Turkey on one side and to the United States on the other side.

The missile strike that Trump was referring to occurred on Friday night.

"I'm not going to say that they're going to be unable to continue to conduct a chemical attack in the future, but I suspect that they'll think long and hard about it based on the activities of last night", the lieutenant general said. And now you know the full story, ' he said.

Haley appeared on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation".

"The strikes may convince (Russian President Vladimir) Putin to stop further use (of chemical weapons) by Assad as it remains clear we are pulling out of Syria".

Vice-President Mike Pence, in Peru for a meeting of regional leaders, said "there will be a price to pay" involving military force if Syrian chemical weapons are used again. The truth is, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Workers, mentioned no extra assaults had been deliberate.

"Is there ANYONE in the White House with an understanding of history?" he asked. What occurs subsequent, she mentioned, is as much as Assad and to his Russian and Iranian allies.
