US Air Missile Strike on Syrian Base

A lot of thought went into this. A whole day's worth.
Donald Trump is speaking to reporters at Mar-a-Lago.

He says Assad used deadly nerve gas to kill many Syrians.

Tonight he ordered a “targeted military strike” on the airfield from which that chemical weapons attack was launched.


He said he was calling on all “civilised nations” to stop the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria.

And we're leading by example, eh?
The strike comprised dozens of Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from the guided-missile destroyers USS Ross and Porter in the eastern Mediterranean. An airfield near Homs was targeted, signalling a limited initial engagement. The US did not target Syria’s formidable air defences, as it does before a concerted airpower campaign.
...but hey, do what you will anyway.
