'Enough is enough': Boris Johnson defends Syria air strikes

'Enough is enough': Boris Johnson defends Syria air strikes

Government ministers were out in force over weekend to explain to government's rationale for airstrikes in Syria, with Boris Johnson leading the charge on the Andrew Marr Show.

Johnson said on Sunday to CNN that Britain had to move quickly on Syria, ruling out parliamentary approval.

The team of experts are set to investigate the April 7 attack east of the capital Damascus, which Bashar al Assad's regime and its Russian ally deny ever took place.

British warplanes took part in the strikes, which destroyed sites suspected of hosting chemical weapons development and storage facilities.

"I'm afraid the Syrian war will go on in its awful, miserable way".




"The overwhelming why this was the right thing to do, and that is to deter the use of chemical weapons - not just by the Assad regime - but around the world", Mr Johnson said.

To foreign secretary was asked: what was the mission and have we really accomplished it?

The air strikes, carried out by the US, UK and French military, targeted three separate targets in Syria linked to the Assad regime's chemical weapons program.

"In this context, the Council understands the targeted US, French and United Kingdom airstrikes on chemical weapons facilities in Syria as specific measures having been taken with the sole objective to prevent further use of chemical weapons and chemical substances as weapons by the Syrian regime to kill its own people".

"I think Parliament should have had a say in this and I think the Prime Minister could have done that quite easily", Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said yesterday.
