“Mission accomplished”

US President Donald Trump has declared a military strike on Syrian government’s chemical weapons sites “mission accomplished”.

The attack, carried out jointly with Britain and France, was a response to an alleged chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma by the Syrian regime.

“A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”, Trump tweeted.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said he condemned the Western strikes “in the most serious way”.

The Pentagon echoed the President’s assessment.

“Last night, operations were very successful,” Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said at a briefing Saturday morning. “We met our objectives. We hit the sites, the heart of the chem-weapons program. So it was mission accomplished.”

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that the United States is ready to keep pressure on Syria following military strikes that targeted the country’s ability to use chemical weapons.

“The United States is locked and loaded,” she said at an emergency UN Security Council meeting.

“When our President draws a red line, our President enforces a red line.”
Haley blasted Russia for protecting Syria and said that Moscow has emboldened Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government to continue its attacks.

The Russian ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia accused Washington of embarking on an “illegal military venture.”

“Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate country and their counterterrorism efforts,” Nebenzia said.

Nebenzia also said recent inspections by the UN’s Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons found no “traces of activity that would contravene the chemical weapons convention” at scientific research facilities targeted in the strikes.

“Mission Accomplished” was a televised address by United States President George W. Bush on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1, 2003. The name became central in the controversy that followed.

Although Bush stated at the time “Our mission continues” and “We have difficult work to do in Iraq,” he also stated that it was the end to major combat operations in Iraq. Bush never uttered the phrase “Mission Accomplished”; a banner stating “Mission Accomplished” was used as a backdrop to the speech. Bush’s assertion—and the sign itself—became controversial after guerrilla warfare in Iraq increased during the Iraqi insurgency.

The vast majority of casualties, both military and civilian, occurred after the speech.

  5. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

  9. Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
