Looking for a florist?

Perhaps you're not sure whom you should use when the need arises to send flowers for that special occasion.

After receiving several warnings and complaints about JustFlowers.com, an online florist company, we decided to put them to the test. A call was made to their 800 number by a member of our staff while also perusing their online site. A female voice offered assistance. Our staff member then suggested that the site offered a number of choices and it would perhaps be best to find the preferred choice and then call back with the selection. The JustFlowers.com representative stated she would wait.

WASHINGTON -- U.S., British and French air and naval forces launched attacks against the Syrian government's chemical weapon arsenal in retaliation for the use of such weapons on civilians, Defense Secretary James N. Mattis and Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a Pentagon news conference Friday night.

"As the world knows, the Syrian people have suffered terribly under the prolonged brutality of the Assad regime," the secretary said. "On April 7, the regime decided to again defy the norms of civilized people, showing callous disregard for international law by using chemical weapons to murder women, children and other innocents. We and our allies find these atrocities inexcusable."

President Donald J. Trump ordered the strikes to stop the regime from using such inhumane weapons again. Mattis said stopping the atrocities is in the vital national interests of the United States.

WASHINGTON — The Syrian regime killed at least 45 people and sickened hundreds of others in a chemical weapons attack on Douma, Syria, April 7, and on April 13, U.S., British and French service members launched attacks that severely degraded the Syrian chemical arsenal and sent a message to Syrian leader Bashir Assad to stop using chemical weapons against his own people.



Chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana W. White and Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, the Joint Staff director, said the "operation was successful and that there were no allied casualties."

White said the attack on innocent civilians in Douma “demanded a response,” and the allies targeted the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons infrastructure. “We launched these strikes to limit Syria’s ability to use chemical weapons in the future,” she said.

WASHINGTON, — U.S., French and British forces have struck targets in Syria as punishment for Syrian leader Bashar Assad using chemical weapons against his own people.

President Donald J. Trump announced the combined force launched precision strikes against the chemical weapons capabilities.

The strike against the capabilities is designed to stop Assad from using the banned weapons.

This is the second time the United States struck Assad’s chemical network. In April 2017, Trump ordered an attack against the Shayrat air base after Syrian aircraft at the base dropped bombs containing the nerve agent sarin. Some 58 missiles hit the aircraft and chemical weapons facilities at the base.
