Under the rule of Trump, I expect things to worsen as he plunges ahead with foreign policy. What's needed is ME nations dealing with these crises in the ME ..... not the US!! Once again, my friends, we've stepped into it. Now, we own it without exit strategies. Heard that before?

Secretary General Antonio Guterres urged restraint as Russia accused the US of encouraging "terrorists" in the region with its unilateral actions.

Russia has promised to strengthen Syria's anti-aircraft defences.

US officials say the base was used to launch a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians on Tuesday.

In the first direct US military action against Syria's government, at least six people are reported to have been killed.
