"There's not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime", she told the "State of the Union" program.
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said that new actions could be taken against Syria. So Trump's decision to launch the strikes - an action President Barack Obama declined to take after a 2013 chemical attack - has raised optimism among rebels that Trump will more directly confront Assad. "And when he didn't cross that line after making the threat, I think that set us back a long ways, not only in Syria but in many other parts of the world because it was a blank threat".
Syria's President Bashar al-Assad is interviewed February 10, 2017, in Syria.
The statement by the group, published on media outlet Ilam al Harbi (War Media) said: "What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines".
"We consider the act (the missile attack) an open invasion of an independent and free country", Major General Mohammad Bagheri, the chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces, said in a phone call with his Syrian counterpart Ali Ayoub. But Tillerson said he sees no reason for retaliation from Moscow because Russian Federation wasn't targeted.
Haley noted that the United States' first priority is still to defeat ISIS, but that there can be "multiple priorities".
McMaster, Cornyn and Cardin spoke on "Fox News Sunday", Tillerson appeared on ABC's "This Week" and CBS' "Face the Nation," Haley and Graham were on NBC's "Meet the Press" and Haley also appeared on CNN's "State of the Union".
Boris Johnson will push leading nations to demand Russian Federation withdraws its forces from Syria when he meets counterparts for talks in Italy next week.
American and Russian officials traded barbs over the increasingly tense situation in Syria on Tuesday, with Russian President Vladimir Putin claiming the USA would fake the additional use of chemical weapons to justify further military action and the White House sharing intelligence that the Kremlin was trying to "cover up" last week's chemical attack. A very small percentage of the people have been slaughtered in Syria have been slaughtered by chemical weapons.
"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 worldwide scene", Putin said.
Assad's government has repeatedly denied using chemical weaponry in its fight against rebels seeking to topple the Damascus regime.
"You saw this awful tragedy on innocent people, a lot of them children, and the first reaction from Russian Federation wasn't 'how frightful, ' it wasn't 'how could they do this, ' it wasn't 'how did this happen, ' it was: 'Assad didn't do it.' Why was that the reaction?"
The strikes resulted in the death of a woman, and three other people were reportedly wounded in Saturday's attack, two activists in Khan Sheikhoun said.
Six Syrian air force planes undergoing repairs at the base were destroyed, but the runways were undamaged, the Guardian quoted the Russian defence ministry saying after the attack.
