Trump Unleashes Military Strikes: 59 Tomahawk Missiles Hit Syria

[Ed. Note: So much for hope and change. Oh wait, that was the other guy… ugh.  More war for Israel.  We’re screwed.]

from Zero Hedge:

As previewed earlier tonight, the United States fired a barrage of cruise missiles into Syria on Friday morning in retaliation for this week’s alleged chemical weapons attack against civilians by the Assad regime.

Update: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responds to US missile strikes on Syria – This “will resonate not only in Damascus, but in Tehran, Pyongyang and elsewhere”

As previewed earlier tonight, the United States fired a barrage of cruise missiles into Syria on Friday morning in retaliation for this week’s alleged chemical weapons attack against civilians by the Assad regime, U.S. officials said. It was the first direct American assault on the Syrian government and Donald Trump’s most dramatic military order since becoming president. According to NBC, only tomahawks missiles fired, no fixed wing aircraft involved, for now.

As AP notes, the surprise strike marked a striking reversal for Trump, who warned as a candidate against the U.S. getting pulled into the Syrian civil war, now in its seventh year. But the president appeared moved by the photos of children killed in the chemical attack, calling it a “disgrace to humanity” that crossed “a lot of lines.”

The president did not announce the attacks in advance, though he and other national security officials ratcheted up their warnings to the Syrian government throughout the day Thursday. National Security Advisor McMaster, quoted by Reuters, said that Trump was given 3 options for retaliating and told advisors to focus on 2; he added that Trump made the decision on Thursday.

The strike early Friday morning in Syria targeted hangars, planes and fuel tanks at one Syrian military airfield, according to a U.S. official. The U.S. attacked with about 60 Raytheon Co. Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from two Navy destroyers.

59 U.S. Tomahawk missiles, fired from warships in the Mediterranean Sea, targeted an air base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack that American officials believe Syrian government aircraft launched with a nerve agent; hangars, planes and fuel tanks were targeted, a U.S. official sais. Two Navy destroyers launched Raytheon missiles against Syria two days after Bashar al-Assad’s regime used poison gas to kill scores of civilians

    But Trump had his Attorney General Jeff Sessions break up all high-profile pedophile rings PizzaGate & PedoGate & make big heads roll.
    Satanic criminals like Podestas, John McCain, Schumer, Lindsey Graham have all been thrown into a dungeon.
    Jeff Sessions has killed the Deep State’s “War on Drugs” by pushing for Federal legalization of marijuana.
    Trump has kept Deep State Goldman Sachs & JPMorgan gangs at arms length.
    Trump has put SATANIC Saudi ruling family on notice & ended all sales of military hardware to them, gutting the Deep State Military Industrial Complex.
    Trump put scum like Paul Ryan on notice, throwing his CRONY healthcare boondoggle into the trashcan. He also promised to work closely with Freedom Caucus & signed end of Obamacare once & for all.

    WAIT A SECOND, none of those things ever happened! If at all, it’s only been the 180 degrees opposite.

    Hey Sean, it may be a good idea for you to invite back “V the Guerilla” & sync back with him about how things are going. He was mindlessly cheering week after Trump’s inauguration like a Trump fanboy, saying that Trump could never do a single thing wrong & especially his Jeff Sessions appointment was his ace card.

    Yes, I know Trump killed TPP by executive order very early. This indeed is a VERY BIG deal & I will give him credit where it’s due. He also gutted Planned Parenthood significantly. But contrasted against the MASSIVE Deep State problems listed at the top, these victories are much smaller. Especially the Planned Parenthood victory counts more like brownie points.

    we have no idea if those things might still take place.

    I think everyone was hoping that Trump was going to drain the swamp and end these fake banker wars BUT it looks like the deep state is too powerful at the moment.

    Now the questions remain, is Trump the deep state as well?
    Is he going along to get along to buy more time-then drain the swamp?
    or is he completely controlled?

    Time will tell, but yes bombing Syria is a pipeline/territory war and has nothing to do with the fake gas attack. As well as ZERO to do with “defending” America.

    What if the Syrian government had the stuff (supplied by Russia) to be able to launch 50-60 of their own cruise missiles at the USA ships that launched the Tomahawks and sank those ships?

    I would call it “an equal & appropriate response” to an unprovoked act of war that the USA committed against Syria.

    Or, far better, would be if suddenly, some Rothschilds, Soros, Kissinger, Cheney, Bush(s), Blankfein, McCain, etc.. and perhaps the CEO’s of Raytheon (maker of the Tomahawks) and Williams Int’s (maker of the small jet engines that drives the Tomahawks) and a few other choice “war industry parasites” suddenly had a bunch of heart attacks and died?

    What if Syria responded by sending 25 big cruise missiles at each of 2 targets,, Wallstreet and the “City of London-banking centers”?

    It’s always better to cut of the snake’s HEAD instead of trying to step on the tail.
