Trump and May hope to persuade Russian Federation to drop Assad support

Can the president attack another country without Congress?More

In his first televised interview, H.R. McMaster pointed to dual U.S. goals of defeating the Islamic State group and removing Assad from power. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, whose close ties to Russian Federation raised questions during his confirmation hearings, slammed Moscow for either being "complicit" in the chemical weapons attack or "incompetent".

Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said the United States was willing to take more action against Assad, while White House officials cautioned that the strikes did not signal a broader shift in USA policy. "We're not saying that we are the ones who are going to effect that change".

But supporters of the strike say it was meant to deter Assad from carrying out future chemical attacks. Russian Federation should ask themselves.

"Russia should ask themselves, 'What are we doing here?' Why are we supporting this murderous regime that is committing mass murder of its own population and using the most heinous weapons available?'" McMaster said.

The move was in response to the suspected chemical weapons attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun which killed 87 people according to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights.

The officials, who insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the sensitive matter, said they believe the hospital attack may have been an effort to cover up evidence of the earlier assault.

"This idea that we're going to get rid of ISIS and then we'll hopefully use Assad and others to come up with a solution".

"I think as time goes on, every day that has passed, he more and more has understood the gravity of U.S. leadership", said GOP Sen. "After all of that he made a very, you know, strong decision and I think it was one that was very good for the world", Haley added. The country has struggled with political instability since the 2011 ouster and killing of longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi, with rival governments and militias seeking to assert authority and a United Nations -led process unable to establish a unified body. Tillerson had faced questions about whether he understood that his new position meant he was now the face of the United States to the world, that he had to answer no longer to a small group of top shareholders but to more than 320 million Americans.

The Khan Sheikhun strike prompted Washington to take its first direct military action against Assad regime, with missile strikes against a central air base on Friday morning.

In that interview airing Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation", Tillerson said Russians were not targeted by the strikes. Despite intense global pressure, Assad has clung to power since a civil war broke out in his country six years ago, helped by financial and military support from both Russian Federation and Iran. After years of calling for al-Assad's removal during former president Barack Obama's tenure, Washington appeared to be stepping back from seeking regime change in Syria in recent weeks.
