Syrian-American Activist: Limited U.S. Airstrikes Send Signal to Assad He Can Continue Mass Killing

The United States is expected to introduce new sanctions against Russian companies with links to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, following the coordinated U.S., British and French military strikes against two alleged chemical weapons storage facilities and a research center in Syria on Friday night. Trump hailed the military strikes a success and declared in a tweet, “Mission Accomplished!” The military strikes came in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma over a week ago. “The United States has claimed, proclaimed that it wants to see and support the Syrian people’s revolution,” says Ramah Kudaimi, “but in fact has really intervened in ways that have strengthened the [Syrian] regime.” Kudaimi is a Syrian-American activist, a member of the Syrian Solidarity Collective, and is on the National Committee of the War Resisters League.
