Theresa May faces Parliament over Syria strikes

Members Of The New Coalition Cabinet Arrive For Their First Cabinet Meeting

"We have seen the individual stories, and they have been, some of them, awful to hear, and that is why I have acted", Rudd said.

But the prime minister may not find such backing when she faces parliament on Monday, where some lawmakers are angry that May took military action without their approval - a process that has increasingly become a tradition in Britain.

"But it is my responsibility as prime minister to make these decisions and I will make them".

Speaking before chairing talks among European Union foreign ministers in Luxembourg, she said that "people are suffering, people are dying, and I think the whole global community has to take responsibility for this".

May was taking questions in Parliament about her decision to authorize the joint strikes.

She now relies on the support of a small Northern Irish party, which has supported the action in Syria, and has tried to dodge votes that might not go her way.

May said the presence of helicopters and the use of barrel bombs pointed the finger of blame squarely at the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad. "We have done it because we believe it was the right thing to do - and we are not alone".

Budget Airline Allegiant Calls Out Critical '60 Minutes' Report
ValuEngine raised Allegiant Air from a hold rating to a buy rating in a report on Wednesday, March 7th. That pilot, Jason Kinzer, claims that he was wrongfully terminated after an evacuation.

The White House is weighing new sanctions against Russian Federation "in the near future" over Moscow's support for Syria's suspected chemical attack on a Damascus suburb that activists claim killed at least 40 people.

Corbyn won approval for a debate on parliament's rights in regard to British military action on Tuesday, and parliament debated long into the evening on Monday on the government's strategy in Syria, particularly regarding civilians there.

Writing on Twitter, Rev Fraser said: "With the Grand Mufti of Syria - the top Muslim cleric in Syria - in the astonishing Umayyad Mosque in central Damascus talking about how love is stronger than missiles. The message is clear, stop use of chemical weapons now!"

Her predecessor, David Cameron, lost a vote on air strikes against Assad's forces in 2013, with many in Britain wary of entering another conflict, especially after an inquiry concluded that then-prime minister Tony Blair's decision to join the 2003 US-led war against Iraq was based on flawed intelligence.

A simmering dispute over Britain's treatment of people who arrived from the Caribbean as children decades ago has erupted just as the country prepares to host leaders from the 53-nation Commonwealth.

But in a sign that the government fears it could lose, one lawmaker said on condition of anonymity that the party's whips, charged with maintaining voting discipline, had made clear that Conservatives should vote with the government.
