Russian Trolls Increased '2000 Percent' After Syria Attack, Pentagon Says

Russian Trolls Increased '2000 Percent' After Syria Attack, Pentagon Says

United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Saturday said that the USA is "locked and loaded" in an event of a chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.

Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the UN, defended the allied attacks on the suspected chemical weapons targets as "justified, legitimate, and proportionate", in response to a proposed Russian resolution to condemn the United States in an emergency session of the UN Security Council.

For years, U.S. President Donald Trump attacked Barack Obama on a variety of issues, including how much time the former president spent on the golf course and U.S. military involvement in Syria. The United States and its allies "were not going to let that stand", she said, adding that Mr. Trump had told her that the United States was "locked and loaded" and ready to strike again should Syria use banned weapons again.

President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to pull all USA forces out of Syria in the near future. Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons.

"We are confident in our own assessment that the Syrian regime was highly likely responsible for this attack and that its persistent pattern of behaviour meant that it was highly likely to continue using chemical weapons", she will say.

The Him Shinshar chemical weapons bunker facility, located more than 4 miles (7 km) from the storage facility, was struck by seven Scout missiles.

But the vote at the end of an emergency meeting called by Russian Federation also demonstrated again the paralysis of the U.N.'s most powerful body in dealing with Syria's seven-year conflict.

An image provided by the Department of Defense and presented at the Pentagon briefing on Saturday showing the areas targeted in Syria by the US-led coalition.

In Assad's view, the airstrikes that were launched in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian forces on the town of Douma will unify the country.

The three sites included the Barzah chemical-weapons research and development center near Damascus that was hit by 76 missiles and "destroyed". I support President Trump's limited action to target chemical weapons facilities and hold this brutal regime accountable.

"This operation does not represent a change in United States policy, nor an attempt to depose the Syrian regime".

"You can keep burning people alive and dropping barrel bombs over cities, but don't use chemical weapons, because it will make us look bad".

"We need real long-term commitment to bring peace to Syria", he said.

He did not rule out sarin use.
