Syria war: G7 seeks united front on Assad and Russia
At least six people were killed in the USA airstrikes, Syria claimed, but the Pentagon said civilians were not targeted and the missiles were aimed at a Syrian military airfield in Homs. That airbase, in western Syria, had just been used days earlier by Assad to drop chemical weapons on Syrians in a nearby rebel-held city.
Johnson said developments in Syria had "changed the situation fundamentally" as he dropped out of the planned talks with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
She told CNN's "State of the Union" programme on Sunday, "there's not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime". "We're not going to have you cover for this regime anymore'". "I think we ought to ask them that question". Russian Federation should ask themselves. "Why are we supporting this murderous regime that is committing mass murder of its own population?"
The Kremlin meanwhile said Russia's president, Vladimir Putin and Hassan Rouhani, his Iranian counterpart, agreed in a telephone call that that USA aggression against Syria was not permissible and violated global law.
But the agenda is now likely to be dominated by last week's suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held Syrian town that killed at least 87 civilians, and the U.S. cruise missiles fired at a Syrian air base in retaliation.
But as lawmakers called on Trump to consult with Congress, Trump administration officials sent mixed signals on the scope of future US involvement.
A USA cruise missile attack on a Syrian air base may persuade President Bashar al-Assad to be more cautious with some of his tactics, but will not deter him and his allies from pressing a full-throttle military campaign to crush rebels.

Russian Federation and Iran have issued a direct warning to US President Donald Trump, saying his missile strike on a Syrian airbase crossed "red lines" and they would respond to any new aggression and increase support for their ally. It's also to get out the Iranian influence, which we think is causing so much friction and worse issues in the area.

His remarks on Sunday TV talk shows came after President Donald Trump's missile strike Thursday on a Syrian air base. But he said Trump now needed to work with Congress to set a future course. Because, if they're covering for Assad, then what are they really saying?
Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, agreed.
"I would prevent Bashar Assad from flying from his airfields if he doesn't renounce the use of these weapons, " the former American airman said.
The top USA diplomat added, "We're hopeful that we can prevent a continuation of the civil war and that we can bring the parties to the table to begin the process of political discussions" between the Assad government and various rebel groups trying to overthrow the Damascus regime.

Still, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he believed that Trump didn't need to consult with Congress. "Assad signed the chemical weapons treaty ban".
Tillerson said the chemical attack had been preceded by two others in March.
"I think what we should do is ask Russian Federation how could it be, if you have advisors at that airfield, that you didn't know that the Syrian Air Force was preparing and executing a mass murder attack with chemical weapons?" He also said the top U.S. priority in the region hasn't changed and remained the defeat of Islamic State militants.
"We do not want the regime's uncontrolled stockpile of chemical weapons to fall into the hands of ISIS or other terrorist groups who could, and want, to attack the United States or our allies". The sentiment was supported by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who on Sunday said in an interview with ABC news [ABC report], that once the threat of ISIS had been reduced, the USA would focus on stabilizing the situation in Syria.
"We're hopeful that we can prevent a continuation of the civil war and that we can bring the parties to the table to begin the process of political discussions" between the Assad government and various rebel groups, he said.
"After this the military campaign began in Iraq, which ended in a destruction of the country, an increase of the terrorist threat and the appearance of the Islamic State (IS) in the global scene", Putin said.
