    Hours before American missiles hit the Syrian airbase, deputy permanent representative of Russia at the UN Vladimir Safronkov said Russia was getting direct signals about an imminent US military operation in Syria and is surprised that no one is thinking of the consequences.
    "For you, journalists, and for us, diplomats, it is no secret that all these discussing in the UN Security Council are happening at the same time with the hype about the upcoming military operation. We're getting direct signals that such military operation is being prepared.
    "Moreover, what suprises most of all, is that no one is wondering about potential consequences."

    French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault has said that France was informed about the strike by the US ahead of the attack, with Washington asking for no particular help from Paris.
    Ayrault added that the future of Syria isn't with Assad, with the Americans beginning to make their position clear.
    He also said that Russia and Iran need to understand that supporting Assad makes no sense, adding that the West doesn't want a confrontation with Moscow and Tehran.

    The chances of US-Russian cooperation in fighting terrorism in Syria have grown dim with the latest missile strike on the Syrian military.
    “Russian cruise missiles continue to hit terrorists, and American cruise missile continue to strike government forces that are actually leading the war against the terrorists, and I’m afraid that with such an approach, the idea of a Russian-American anti-terrorist coalition in Syria, about which so much has been said since Trump came into power, will die in childbirth,” head of the Upper House Committee for International Relations, Konstantin Kosachev, said.

    US lawmakers have been sharply divided on President Donald Trump’s decision to order a missile strike without consulting lawmakers.
    Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has criticized the decision, saying that the incursion is hardly justified given the past experiences of the US in the Middle East.
    “Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer and Syria will be no different,” Paul wrote on Twitter.
    Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu sided with Paul, pointing that “attacking the Assad regime requires congressional approval,” as opposed to the actions that are carried out “in defense of the US.”
    Hillary Clinton’s former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine took a similar stance, calling Trump’s decision to go war unilaterally “unconstitutional” and “unlawful.”
    Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) argued that if the issue was not urgently debated in Congress it would mean the “abdication of our responsibility.” 
    Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who used to voice highly critical opinions on Trump, praised him this time, saying that Trump “deserves the support of the American people” as he "confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action.”
    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) also commended Trump.
    “The action in Syria was appropriate and just,” he wrote on Twitter.

    The US strikes on the Syrian airbase are “reckless and irresponsible actions” that risk further destabilizing the situation in the Middle East and lead to the emergence of new military conflicts and the expansion of those that already exist, the first deputy chair of the Russian State Duma’s Defense Committee, Andrey Krasnov, said.
    "The United States wants to stir up a big fire in the Middle East and by launching 59 cruise tactical missiles they added fuel to the flame," he added, as cited by RIA Novosti.
