Syrian Canadians say airstrikes have them feeling both optimism and worry

Haley said the U.S.is "locked and loaded" for another missile strike if there is another chemical attack in Syria.

Later Sunday, Trump sent a letter to congressional leaders informing them in writing of his decision to order the strike.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis called the strikes a "one-time shot", although Trump raised the prospect of further strikes if Assad's government again used chemical weapons.

Syrian ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari said the US, UK and France had undermined worldwide peace and security, and asked the Secretariat to distribute copies of the UN Charter to the three nations in order to "enlighten themselves, and awaken themselves from their ignorance and tyranny".

Trump used the haunting political phrase "Mission Accomplished!" in a tweet Saturday morning to praise the "perfectly executed strike" against Syria.

Even in a conflict already as debased as Syria's vicious civil war, there must be global norms and laws that civilized nations enforce.

"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.

Russia's Defence Ministry issued a statement saying that more than 100 cruise missiles and air-to-land missiles were fired by the US, Britain, and France from the sea and air "at Syrian military and civilian targets".

Haley said President Donald Trump is prepared to strike Syria again if that happens, though she declined to say how the United States would respond to the use of conventional weapons.

On Saturday afternoon at the U.N.in New York City, Russia's demand for condemnation and an immediate halt to "aggression" and "any further use of force" by the U.S., Britain and France received support from only two other countries on the 15-member council - China and Bolivia.

The Government said the United Kingdom is allowed under global law "on an exceptional basis" to take measures to end "overwhelming humanitarian suffering" if certain conditions have been met. "We humiliated their missiles", said Mahmoud Ibrahim, who waved a Syrian flag.

Saeed Saeed, head of the Institution for the Development of Pharmaceutical and Chemical Industries, said the center was previously used by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) but now works on pharmaceutical products. In fact, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said no additional attacks were planned.
