I have no idea. I do know the only way for us to declare war is from Congress.

Reuters: U.S. tomahawk cruise missile strike on Syrian airbase has already been completed
https://twitter.com/Reuters/status/850158177421328384

So, it's over. CNN is reporting that President Trump is expect to speak later tonight to the on the strikes.

Also:

- Hillary Clinton calls for U.S. to bomb Syrian air fields
- http://www.reuters.com/article/us-people-hillary-clinton-idUSKBN179058

In her first interview since her stunning presidential election defeat by Republican rival Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton on Thursday called for the United States to bomb Syrian air fields.
It look like both the Democrats and Republicans are on the same side here and want the US to turn Syria into a glass parking lot.

Some countries on good terms with Syria:

Syria continues to foster good relations with its traditional allies, Iran and Russia.

Other countries that presently maintain good relations with Syria include China, North Korea, Angola, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Brazil, Guyana, India, South Africa, Tanzania, Pakistan, Armenia, Argentina, Belarus, Tajikistan, Philippines, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and others.

From among the Arab League states, Syria continues to have good relations with Iraq, Egypt (after 3 July 2013), Algeria, Kuwait, Lebanon and Oman.

Turkey and Saudi Arabia are the regional powers that really dislike Assad. Turkey has been letting us use their air bases to launch strikes on the Syrian regime.

- Turkish involvement in the Syrian Civil War
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_involvement_in_the_Syrian_Civil_War

Turkey relations with Syria had been friendly over a decade previous to the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War. Turkey condemned its President Bashar Assad over the violent crackdown on protests in 2011 and requested his departure from office.

Tensions between Syria and Turkey significantly worsened after Syrian forces shot down a Turkish fighter jet in June 2012, and border clashes erupted in October 2012.[35] On 24 August 2016, the Turkish armed forces began a declared direct military intervention into Syria pursuing as targets both ISIL and the Kurdish-aligned forces in Syria.

Turkey also provided refuge for Syrian dissidents.

The United States launched 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles against Syrian government targets in retaliation for what the Trump administration charges was a Syrian government chemical weapons attack that killed scores of civilians, a U.S. official said on Thursday.

The targets hit from U.S. ships in the Mediterranean Sea included the air base in the central city of Homs from which the Syrian aircraft staged Tuesday's chemical weapons attack, said the U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Reuters: Russia warns of 'negative consequences' if U.S. targets Syria.
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-un-russia-idUSKBN179039

"We have to think about negative consequences, negative consequences, and all the responsibility if military action occurred will be on shoulders of those who initiated such doubtful and tragic enterprise," Safronkov told reporters when asked about possible U.S. strikes.


Trump says missile strike after chemical attack in Syria is in "vital national security interest" of U.S. (CNBC)
