Trade minister says 'no appetite' to renegotiate TPP to accommodate US

Witnesses saw blasts surrounding much of the Syrian capital and a huge fire could be seen from a distance to the east.

The U.S., United Kingdom and France are all North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members.

Immediately after the attack, Syrian state TV, broadcasting live from the landmark Omayyad Square, showed crowds of civilians mixing with men in uniform, including vehicles with flags.

President Donald Trump announced on Friday he ordered "precision" airstrikes on the Syrian regime in response to a chemical weapon attack last weekend.

"Let's be clear: Assad's most recent use of poison gas against the people of Douma was not his first, second, third, or even 49th use of chemical weapons", Haley said.

"So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime", May said.

Syrian media reported that Syrian defenses hit 13 rockets south of Damascus.

The missiles struck Syria shortly after 4 a.m. local time today. An AP reporter in Damascus says the attacks turned the sky orange.

As the leaders spoke, explosions were heard in Damascus.

A auto with loudspeakers blaring the national song "Oh Syria, You Are My Love" could be heard driving through central Damascus amid the attack. The strikes targeted chemical weapons research and storage facilities in Damascus.

And then there's the other trillion-dollar question: "How receptive will the other 11 nations be to welcoming the USA back?"

The U.K.'s defense ministry said Britain contributed "four Royal Air Force Tornado GR4s", to the effort.

Advising Trump on Syria was John Bolton, the newly installed national security adviser with a militaristic and hawkish reputation, and Defense Secretary James Mattis, who sought to ensure that military action was linked to a broader strategy.

"We would have preferred an alternative path". It was also uncertain how much either Russian Federation or Iran would take the risk of both escalating and widening the crisis in Syria with a cybercounterattack on the West. "It is not about regime change". Russian Federation threatened to shoot down any US missiles launched at targets in Syria. "All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris", Antonov said.

Vice-President Mike Pence warned Syrian authorities that the new cases of use of chemical weapons will not remain without response from the United States. He said this was believed to be the main site of Syrian sarin and precursor chemical production equipment.

"The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons".

His comments, made on Twitter late Thursday, came only hours after he had unexpectedly indicated the United States might rejoin the landmark pact, and amid heightened volatility in financial markets as Washington locked horns with China in a bitter trade dispute. The mission's job was only to determine whether chemical weapons had been used, not who had used them.

In his nationwide address, Trump stressed that he has no interest in a longtime fight with Syria.

"We have sought to use every possible diplomatic channel to achieve this", May said in a statement. "As other nations step up their contributions, we look forward to the day when we can bring our warriors home". Since then, Trump and his military officials have maintained that "all options" were on the table, but that not only Syria, but allies Russian Federation and Iran may pay a "big price" after the toxic gas attack for which some Western governments and their allies have indicted the Syrian government.

Marking one of the amazingly few times Mr.Trump has told the truth, he made good on the trade threats he made as a candidate and, knowing the risks of alienating major agricultural trade partners, farmers overwhelmingly supported a candidate they knew could further worsen an already hard agriculture economy.
