Trump declares 'Mission Accomplished!' with Syria airstrikes as Assad holds on to power

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump declared “Mission Accomplished!” Saturday while the Pentagon said its initial assessment was that a powerful pre-dawn missile barrage by the United States, Britain and France had “degraded” but may not have fully destroyed Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council — the fifth in a week — that Trump was “locked and loaded” to order another punitive attack if Syrian President Bashar Assad uses chemical weapons again.
