From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 16 April 2018

Comparisons are being drawn between the Syrian airstrikes and the beginning of the Iraq War. The US, Britain and France are continuing to defend the missile strikes they launched in Syria on Saturday. The US has also warned the Syrian government that it stands ready to take more military action if there are any further chemical weapons attacks on Syrian civilians. US correspondent Simon Marks tells us President Donald Trump described Saturday's strikes as "perfectly executed".
