Could not have had a better result.

"Last year, the focus was on the delivery", Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said Saturday.

"To succeed in the long run, we need a comprehensive strategy for Syria and the entire region", Republican Senator John McCain said in a statement after the latest strikes. In fact, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said no additional attacks were planned.

Several U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it was not a priority for the administration to push out Assad, who has survived with massive aid from Iran and Russian Federation.

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

"Is there ANYONE in the White House with an understanding of history?" he asked.

When pressed, he acknowledged that some unspecified portion of Assad's chemical arms infrastructure was not focused. "We know that it is now up to (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad on whether he is going to use chemical weapons again, and should he use it again, the president has made it very clear that the United States is locked and loaded and ready to go", she said. "The war on terror is not over, yet it is not endless", Bush said.

Assad's Barzah analysis and growth heart in Damascus was destroyed, McKenzie mentioned.

The US ambassador to the United Nations said Donald Trump "has not yet made a decision about possible actions in Syria". While a full assessment has not yet been completed, "we believe that the action was successful", she said.

The airstrikes, which hit several sites, were a direct response to Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons in Douma on April 7. Talking from rebel-held northern Syria, Abdulrazek instructed The Related Press there have been maybe 50 warehouses in Syria that saved chemical weapons earlier than this system was dismantled in 2013.

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.

Disputing the Russian army's competition that Syrian air protection items downed 71 allied missiles, McKenzie mentioned no US or allies missiles had been stopped.

"Air strikes disconnected from a broader strategy may be necessary, but they alone will not achieve US objectives in the Middle East", said McCain, who a year ago called for more aggressive action that would cripple Assad's military. Some of the 40 Syrian missile interceptors might have hit civilian targets, he said.

McKenzie mentioned 105 U.S. and allied missiles had been fired, of which 66 had been Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from aboard three U.S. Navy ships and one Navy submarine. U.S., British and French attack aircraft, including two U.S. Air Force B-1B strategic bombers, launched stealthy, long-range missiles from outside Syrian airspace, officials said. The World Health Organization said 70 were killed in the attack, with 43 dying from chemical exposure. He criticized the USA and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for global inspectors to complete their visit to the area.

The Syrian government is believed to have been responsible for dropping a barrel bomb with chemical agents on a civilian population near Damascus a week ago.

He added that he knew the media would "seize" on the phrase, but said it should be used often.
