Foreign policy experts, human rights groups, and anti-war activists all immediately and forcefully condemned the U.S. bombardment of Syria on Friday night after reports indicated the “illegal” attack on the sovereign Middle East nation had begun and President Donald Trump announced in a national address that he had ordered the strikes alongside French and U.K. forces.

    Russia says the western strikes on Syria are ‘unacceptable and lawless’

    Louise Miner | Euronews

    The western strikes on Syria are ‘unacceptable and lawless’, according to Russia’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Sergey Lavrov.

    A Kremlin official statement says “Without the authorization of the UN Security Council, in violation of the UN charter, of standards and principles of international law, we have witnessed an act of aggression against the sovereign state which is on the forefront of the fight against terrorism”

    Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov said, “These acts are illegal and unacceptable.

    President Macron has publicly announced that there are irrefutable facts that prove the chemical weapons were used in Douma by, what they call, the “Assad regime”.

    He talked, I believe, the day before yesterday with President Putin. During the conversation, our President quoted the public statement of the French leader regarding these “facts” and he asked to share them since, he said, we are the first ones who would like to put an end to such practices – the use of Chemical weapons.

    The answer was: it’s a secret; we cannot provide this data. ”

    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said an attack on Syria by the United States, France and Britain was a crime and would not achieve any gains.

    Iran’s pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani also warned that the US-led missile attack on Syria would lead to further destruction in the Middle East.

    What is your Agenda in Attacking Syria?

    It was not an attack on Syria but a defense of innocent civilians. The military strikes were strategic targeting chemical factories.

    Sometimes the best defense is a tactical offense.
    As my friend like to say, “we see things as we are”.

    Remember WMD – Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq?
    Slaughter of innocent women and children for political expediency

    Why should we believe otherwise regarding Syria ??
    With another President of the USA looking for a distraction – any distraction!?!

    Sergey Lavrov said Putin asked for “facts”?
    – they said they can’t tell him it is a secret, we cannot provide this data.

    Therefore, why should thinking people accept or believe a “plain and obvious” LIAR like Traitor Trump??
