Center Hit in US Attack Produced Cancer Drugs: Medical Head

"If there were chemical weapons, we would need to wear masks and take other protective measures to be staying here", he said.

Obama never did order an attack. Trump spent the 2016 presidential campaign ripping into the multi-national pact, saying he could get a better deal for US businesses by negotiating one-on-one with countries in the Pacific Rim. The president assigned his top trade advisers, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and his new chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, "to take another look at whether or not a better deal could be negotiated".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement that she "authorized British armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use". "His regime's unconscionable brutality against innocent civilians can not be tolerated". This cheap political stunt will cost consumers more, widen already enormous federal deficits and, worst of all, enable farmers who opted for substantial political risk in voting for Mr. Trump. Now in its eighth year, the multisided war has pulled in a half-dozen nations, including Russian Federation, and it has scrambled partisan battle lines in Washington. He argued that the deals were terribly negotiated, ripping off the USA and hurting American workers and manufacturing. The attack did not threaten Assad's grip on power.

Defense Secretary James Mattis, new national security adviser John Bolton, Vice President Mike Pence and US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley were all involved in the decision to strike Syria, Reuters reports.

Congress last declared war in 1941. Obama canceled his planned airstrikes in 2013 because congressional leaders refused to call a vote to authorize the use of force. As far as now, there are no reports saying Russian Federation responded militarily to the airstrikes as they had threatened to do earlier this week.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that a target of the strike was the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal". He carefully added, "I await a briefing on the scope and success of the mission".

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Friday afternoon that Trump "is going to hold the Syrian government accountable". No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants and murderous dictators.

Hawkish conservatives favored the aggressive pushback against Assad. Officials who defy federal law on the basis of local and state autonomy seem to be resurrecting the Civil War-era "nullification doctrine" and states rights sovereignty claims that were rendered null and void by the Union victory in 1865.

But it also created another group of odd bedfellows - liberals and conservatives upset that Trump neglected to consult Congress.

President Donald Trump's tendency to announce sudden changes in trade policy has confused investors and made experts question whether the president actually has a larger plan for trade. No formal approval was sought.

US President Donald Trump has announced he ordered air attacks in Syria "on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities", in collaboration with the United Kingdom and France.

The NYPD said it is closely monitoring the situation in Syria.
