London, United Kingdom. The United States has launched 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria in response to an unproven, alleged chemical attack being blamed on the Assad administration. One high ranking former supporter of US President Trump is running for the exit after the unprecedented act of war upon Russian ally Syria.
UK leaderNigel Farage has criticised Donald Trump for the first time following the US President’s order for military action in Syria. Farage who enjoys close ties with President Trump said he was surprised by the move and thought the American President’s supporters will be wondering “where will it all end?”.
Friday he warned Prime Minister Theresa May against following the Americans into another military intervention in the Middle East. Mr Farage had been hailed by the US President, who asked the Ukip leader to speak at election campaign rallies, as well as inviting him to become the first British politician to meet him after his shock victory.
But following the missile strike on the Syrian airbase, anti-interventionist Mr Farage said: “I am very surprised by this. He then urged Britain not to get involved in any further strikes, saying: “Previous interventions in the Middle East have made things worse rather than better.”
Mr Farage’s words followed comments from Ukip’s current leader Paul Nuttall, who said, “The whole world rightly condemns the use of chemical weapons in Syria, but the US attack on the Assad regime does nothing to lower tensions, nor will it hasten peace in that country.
“There are currently no good options in Syria. Assad or Isis is not a choice anyone would wish to make. But firing off missiles in an enraged response shows weakness not strength in the face of horror. I hoped for better from this administration.” Farage lamented on Friday.
