So much for “America first.”
From NBC News:
Two U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea fired 59 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.
There was no immediate word on casualties. U.S. officials told NBC News that people were not targeted and that aircraft and infrastructure at the site, including the runway, were hit.
Trump’s speech on the attack was another lackluster performance:
Is he being blackmailed by Neocons?
This attack is clearly about weakening Assad before the war is over. This is furthering the Neocon-Israeli agenda of “securing the realm” by keeping Israel’s enemies in a perpetual state of chaos.
RT is reporting that “Russian forces were reportedly warned ahead of time,” so hopefully this won’t kick off WW3.
Nonetheless, this is a total betrayal. He knows this is a conjob. Bannon knows this is a conjob. Everyone who supported him and helped him win the presidency knows this is a conjob and begged him not to do it.
No one voted for more attacks in the Middle East and no one gives a shit about some random gassing in a far-off land.
AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA – IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!

The Neocons are the only ones who want this war and they’re the only ones cheering it on.
If Pres. Trump takes appropriate action against Assad this #NeverTrumper will of course support him. He's the president, not merely "Trump."

Watching MSNBC, they’re saying they’re now going to drop the whole “Russian conspiracy” narrative like they’re giving him a doggy treat.
Earlier today I wrote: “Even if the globalist media cheers him on and a few weeks from now becomes his biggest supporters, he’s going to lose his base and many of his most fervent supporters.”
I didn’t realize the switch would happen within a few hours.
