Donald Trump has now issued a missile attack on Syria following their chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians earlier in the week.
On Trumps orders, US warships launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian government airbase where the warplanes that carried out the chemical attacks were based, US officials said.
Trump released a statement saying, “Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the air field in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”
He went on to say, “There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically.”
Praying we don’t have to now all have to run for cover. Was that a good move on the US’ part?
