Russia has betrayed obligation to end Syria's chemical weapons program -White House

  Russia has betrayed obligation to end Syria's chemical weapons program -White House The White House on Monday accused Russia of betraying its obligation to end Syria's chemical weapons program in light of a suspected chemical weapons attack over the weekend. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters the attack was consistent with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's established pattern of chemical weapons use, and that Russia and Iran also bore responsibility for their material support for the government."It is also now clear that Russia has betrayed its obligations to guarantee the end of the Syrian regime's chemical weapons program," Sanders added.

A survivor of a 2013 chemical -weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad praised President Donald Trump on Friday for choosing to order a missile strike against an airbase in Syria . We want to stay in our country, with all due respect. This is hypocrisy.

CNN decided to interview one Syrian survivor to see what he had to say about President Trump bombing his country. This Syrian makes such a good point about the hypocrisy of Americans that boycott the travel ban but have nothing to say about the chemical attack .

A survivor of a Syrian chemical attack in 2013 wants to buy President Donald Trump a beer to share his experience on the conditions in the country.

Kassem Eid, who told CNN's Ana Cabrera he lived under two years of siege and bombardment by the Syrian government, said he was glad the President has attempted to do something for the Syrian people.

"I just want to tell Mr. Trump directly: I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks, who lived under two years of siege and bombardment by the government," Eid said. "I would love to, like, buy you a beer, and just sit in front of you and tell you how bad it is in Syria."

With Syria in focus, Trump cancels trip to Latin America

  With Syria in focus, Trump cancels trip to Latin America U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to cancel his first official trip to Latin America this week to focus on responding to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria, the White House said on Tuesday. Trump had been scheduled to travel to Lima, Peru, on Friday to attend the Summit of the Americas and then travel on to Bogota, Colombia. The trip had been expected to be tense and awkward because of Trump's repeated disparagement of the region over immigration, narcotics and trade.His travel plans changed after a Saturday night attack on the Syrian town of Douma which killed at least 60 people and injured more than 1,000 others.

Eid also said he would tell Trump, that he "proved once again, yesterday, that you have a big heart. At least a lot more bigger than Obama because you actually tried to do something. We need real, long-term commitment to bring peace to Syria."

The United States, along with the United Kingdom and France, launched coordinated air strikes Friday evening on Syria's chemical weapons capabilities in response to an alleged chemical attack. In a speech announcing the attack, Trump blamed the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

On Saturday, Trump called the strike "perfectly executed," on Twitter, writing, "mission accomplished!"

The Syrian government has denied involvement in the chemical attack.

In August 2013, then-President Barack Obama said the US had determined that Syria had launched a chemical weapons attack targeting its own people. Obama opted to seek congressional approval over the use of military force in Syria. But as CNN has reported, "when Obama considered launching airstrikes in Syria against 2013, he decided to go to Congress before striking, and the resistance he faced there convinced the president not to hit Assad."

  CBS News Radio military analyst Mike Lyons said Mr. Trump has "got to be careful not to get goaded into doing something that's not in the best interest of the United States"The U.S. has a number of actions in responding to the alleged chemical attack in Syria, but it's a more difficult challenge than "just kind of firing ready, aim here," said CBS News Radio military analyst Mike Lyons. But most importantly, Mr. Trump's "got to be careful not to get goaded into doing something that's not in the best interest of the United States," Lyons told CBSN's Meg Oliver Tuesday.

A Syrian refugee who survived a 2013 chemical weapons attack said Monday he wants President Trump to help Syrians return to a safe country without Bashar al-Assad in power.

In 2014, Obama did announce a series of airstrikes against what the president described as "ISIL targets in Syria," using an alternate term for the terrorist group more commonly known as ISIS.

Trump launched a military strike against the Syrian regime nearly one year ago targeting a government airbase also in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed civilians.
