US officials say Russian inaction enabled Syria chemical attack
"Once we can eliminate the battle against ISIS, conclude that and it is going quite well, then we hope to turn our attention to cease fire agreements between the regime and opposition forces".
As Trump sends missiles into Syria - in response to the devastating chemical weapon attack on civilians - further conflict with Syria or possibly even Russian Federation becomes more feasible.
The missile strike also showed the Trump administration's willingness to break from Vladimir Putin.
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.
Speaking to Jake Tapper, the host of the State of the Union show, on Sunday, the USA official said that the issue of the new sanctions is already being discussed. Haley said that it was hard to see a peaceful and stable Syria with Assad as president [CNN report], based on his action and the current situation in Syria.
"There's not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime", Haley told "State of the Union" anchor Jake Tapper.
'The question is how do you remove Assad and what does the next day look like?' "So, yes, I'm skeptical", she said.
Graham also argued Sunday that the United States is "relying too much" on the Kurds in that region to defeat ISIS and that additional US troops would attract more regional fighters in that effort.

President Putin regards the U.S. airstrikes on Syria as "An act of aggression against a sovereign state delivered in violation of global law under a far-fetched pretext".
The official said that the United States hadn't been able to determine whether Syria or Russian Federation was operating the drone, but confirmed on Monday it was Russian Federation.
It was the first time the United States has intervened directly in the Syrian civil war against the Russian-backed regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
Trump launched more than 50 Tomahawk missiles from the US Navy warships in the Mediterranean Sea in revenge for Syria's chemical attack which left 70 civilians dead.
Moscow has sought to deflect blame from its long-time ally al-Assad over the incident and says Syrian jets struck a rebel arms depot where "toxic substances" were being put inside bombs.
"Every time Assad has crossed the line of human decency, Russian Federation has stood beside him".
So Trump's decision to launch the strikes - which President Barack Obama declined to do after a 2013 chemical attack - has raised optimism among rebels that Trump will more directly confront Assad.
