Trump orders missile attack on the Syrian air base

Postby Roy » Thu Apr 06, 2017 8:50 pm

President Trump has orders Tomahawk missile fire on the Syrian air base where it is believed the chemical weapons were launched.

The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles Thursday night at a Syrian airfield in response to what it believes was the Syrian government’s use of banned chemical weapons blamed for having killed at least 100 people on Tuesday, U.S. military officials told NBC News.

Two U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea fired at least 50 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha’irat in Homs province in western Syria, the officials said. That’s the airfield from which the United States believes the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad fired the banned weapons.

Things change.

Perhaps for him, as a father, it was the dead and suffering children.

Good point. He won't let them into the country or help them get somewhere safe but if they get killed he'll bomb some air bases. Things do indeed change.

I don't suppose that, just once, you could answer a post without snark.

You go a whole day without snarking, yelling "troll!," and posting one-sentence trolls about the left, and I'll stop snarking.

Which that wasn't. I do find it a bit horrific that you and Trump won't do anything to save those kids but you'll happily use them as an excuse to bomb somebody.

I tried that with Gargantua. It lasts for about a day and he goes back to snark/hate.

However will give it a go. Your on. :)

Yours too. Twenty four hours, or would you rather start in the morning?

As long as it works, there is no reason to avoid continuing. :)

Earlier this week Trump said he would ignore Syria and Assad took that as permission to get away with using chemical weapons. Those moves reminded me of when Bush the Elder said he would ignore Iraq and Saddam took that as permission in invade Kuwait.

"Hours earlier, Clinton had called for strikes on military targets in Syria while speaking at a Women in the World Summit in New York. Clinton reiterated how she had favored a tougher approach against Assad when she was Secretary of State.

She said: 'I believed then, that we should've done more at the point. These are not easy decisions that's why you want to get the best info you can ... I then did promote a no-fly zone, I still believe we should've done a no-fly zone. I think we should have been more willing to confront Assad.' She added: 'I really believe we should have and still should take out his air fields and prevent him from being able to use them to bomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them.'

Eyewitness says Syrian military anticipated U.S. raid
Syrian military officials appeared to anticipate Thursday night's raid on Syria's Shayrat air base, evacuating personnel and moving equipment ahead of the strike, according to an eyewitness.

If they had enough time to evac and move equipment, they had to have known it was coming before congress did.

That's a whole lot of question raising.
