Donald Trump authorized the launching of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the sovereign Syrian state without UN Security Council or without Congressional approval merely weeks after 1000 American Troops invaded Syria without the permission of the Arab Nation and just five days after he said regime change was no longer part of United States policy on Syria.

Trump’s missile strike killed nine civilians, including four children which are significantly more causalities than a terrorist attack that hit Westminster in London. Yet, despite this tragic loss of civilian life, other world leaders praised the US strikes.

The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime, and is intended to deter further attacks," Theresa May’s office said in a statement.
