US, UK, France bomb Syria over chemical attack

At the same time 54 percent of those surveyed said that UK Prime Minister Theresa May should have held a parliamentary debate and vote before intervening militarily in Syria, while 30 percent of respondents said that it was not necessary, according to the survey.
Four Royal Air Force Tornado jets using Storm Shadow missiles had taken part in the attack on a military facility near Homs where it was assessed Syria had stockpiled chemicals, Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) said.
May said the missile strike was created to minimize any civilian casualties and was not an attempt to change the Syrian government.
May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the regime was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday. It is not about regime change. "Yet... the global community is not convinced that a chemical attack took place in Douma, and wants to see the results of the ongoing OPCW investigation... to say that "there is no practicable alternative to the use of force if lives are to be saved" is hypocritical, to say the least", the statement says.
May is not obliged to win parliament's approval before ordering military action, but a non-binding constitutional convention to do so has been established since a 2003 vote on joining the US -led invasion of Iraq.
It vowed in its statement that the fact-finding mission due to go to Douma later Saturday "will continue its deployment to the Syrian Arab Republic to establish facts around the allegations of chemical weapons use in Douma".
Correspondents from the British and world press also asked the prime minister to explain what role can the Parliament play in making a decision to attack another sovereign country. "The opposition does not operate helicopters or use barrel bombs".
