In response, Syria's ally Russian Federation accused the U.S. of encouraging "terrorists" with unilateral actions. The decision undercut another campaign promise for Trump: his pledge to try to warm relations with Moscow. Though he did not attack the Syrian government, Obama did not do "nothing". This satellite photo courtesy of the Department of Defense shows a battle damage assessment image of Shayrat Airfield.
Two days earlier, Trump ordered the launch of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles against the airbase from US Navy ships based in the Eastern Mediterranean. "It was a slow and brutal death for so many - even handsome babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack".

Kim Jong Un loves the public spotlight, and it will be telling if he similarly goes into hiding", said Gordon Chang, a Daily Beast columnist and author of "Nuclear Showdown: "North Korea Takes On The World".

As the Gorsuch battle underscored, both Republicans and Democrats in Washington are feeling an enormous pressure from their bases to stick it to the other side at all costs.

It was especially striking because Trump had played a big role in what seemed to be the world community's gradual acquiescence to the Syrian president remaining in power as a sort-of "least bad option". Larson has called on Congress to act on the use of chemical weapons in Syria in the past, namely after a 2013 chemical attack. Mattis also knows how to tread carefully with Russian Federation and understands possible risks from his time with the Obama administration.
The match comes as tensions flare between the two countries following repeated missile tests from the North and military war-games being conducted by the South and the US.

The ANC's national working committee has since said that a "breakdown" in the relationship between Gordhan and Zuma led to the former finance minister's dismissal.
Rule The World, a 33-1 shot trained by Morris and owned by the Gigginstown House Stud headed by airline boss Michael O'Leary, won the 2016 event despite never having claimed a victory over fences before. Fox, who only returned to action from injury earlier in the week, said: "It's unbelievable".

Tensions have escalated in Northeast Asia following a series of ballistic missiles launches by North Korea in recent months and reports suggesting Pyongyang may be preparing another nuclear test.

A MI congressman said President Donald Trump's ordering of strikes against Syria was appropriate but the President should come to congress for any other military reaction. In Washington, Republican leaders applauded Trump's actions, despite the president launching the strike without congressional authorization.

The White House said the air strikes were a retaliatory measure following the suspected use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime and were targeted at Syrian troops to avoid civilians. The US missiles hit at 20:45 in Washington, 03:45 on Friday morning in Syria. Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said the Americans had used a "far-fetched pretext" to justify the attack while the defence ministry in Moscow said it would be helping its Syrian ally strengthen its air defences.
The target was the Shayrat airbase in western Syria, from which USA officials say Syrian forces launched a chemical weapons strike on Tuesday. Russian Federation claims the pretext for the USA strike - Assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians earlier in the week that killed at least 85 people - is false.

But Beijing is wary of putting too much pressure on North Korea for fear of the unpredictable consequences if the state collapses. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson acknowledged the launch in a statement but said the U.S. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump pose for a photograph before attending dinner at Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., February 11, 2017.
The meme is the work of Twitter user Justin Shanes, who used a photo taken by Brian Eckert , and added in the words "Meanwhile, at today's meeting on feline healthcare".
