US LAUNCHES AIRSTRIKES IN SYRIA Dozens of cruise missiles launched in response to chemical weapons attack

The mark has been set that President Trump says what he means and means what he says. 
He said he was very unhappy with the chemical attacks in Syria and action was taken to prevent them in the future.  This is what a real leader of the free world does!
Fox News reports the United States launched nearly fivedozen cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield early Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians, the first direct assault on the Damascus government since the beginning of that country's bloody civil war in 2011.

"It is in the vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons," President Donald Trump said in a statement. "Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types."

Fifty-nine Tomahawk missiles targeted an airbase at Shayrat, located outside Homs. The missiles targeted the base's airstrips, hangars, control tower and ammunition areas, officials said.

  1. ISIS or another rebel group could have easily did the chemical attack knowing that Assad would be blamed.
    Then the US or other Western power would then bomb Assad.
    We were played like fools.
    Stay out of Syria!!!
