After the U.S., France and United Kingdom hit Syria with airstrikes late Friday night in response to a chemical weapons attack ordered by al-Assad against civilians, Pentagon Chief Spokesperson Dana W. White said Russian Federation has already started to beef up its misinformation game on social media.
She said: "We can not stand by and let Russian Federation trash every worldwide norm and allow use of chemical weapons to go unanswered".
Sarin had previously appeared to be the threshold for intervention.
"A perfectly executed strike last night", Mr. Trump said.
Pence said the strike was morally correct, because it was meant to prevent similar chemical attacks in the future.
"We believe that Syria's attempts to defend itself were largely ineffective, and obviously carried a risk to people's lives", he said. "Chemical weapons have been prohibited for decades and we must enforce this prohibition".
As of Saturday, it was unclear whether another chlorine attack would be enough to trigger more United States strikes, or whether the death toll would need to be high enough or whether - as was the case on April 7 - sarin use would also need to be a possibility. "We need to hold war criminals accountable".

"There was a wish list put out by the Americans three months ago", Bishara said.
"I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks", he said.
Some protesters like David Mandel liken USA involvement in Syria to the Iraq and Vietnam wars. "From the point of view of the president, this was aggression and we share this position", Russia's TASS news agency quoted lawmaker Sergei Zheleznyak as saying after the meeting with Assad in the Syrian capital Damascus. Moscow slammed the joint United Nations and OPCW inquiry as flawed. Eastern Standard Time targets struck locations clearly associated with the al-Assad regime's chemical weapons program with targets selected to minimize civilian casualties. "Public estimates are as high as 200", she said. Various groups alleged that either chlorine, a nerve agent, or both were used in the attack.
The United States has warned Syria's government that it is "locked and loaded" to strike again if Damascus carries out chemical attacks.
