Trump orders strike on Syria

The USAF carried out an air strike on Syria to attack any chemical weapons plants dictator Bashar Assad has, with France and Britain assisting:
President Donald Trump announced that he had ordered precision missile strikes on Syria in reaction to the use of chemical weapons by Bashar al-Assad.

“These are not the actions of a man. They are crimes of a monster instead,” Trump said, condemning the regime for using chemical weapons against his people in the ongoing civil war in the country. Early reports from Syria noted explosions on military sites as the president spoke.

The president made his remarks at the White House on Friday evening, arguing that preventing the spread of chemical weapons was in the interests of the United States. He pointed out that chemical weapons had been banned by civilized nations since World War I.

“The purpose of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons,” he wrote. “Establishing this deterrent is a vital interest of the United States.”

He described the Assad regime’s use of chemical as an “evil and despicable attack” that deserved a strong military response, despite signaling just days earlier his willingness to withdraw U.S. troops from the region.

But Trump specified that the United States was not acting alone, and confirmed that Britain and France were joining the military strikes.

“Today, the nations of Britain, France, and the United States of America have marshaled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality,” he said.
Israel's government said the strike was justified. I certainly hope so, and also hope they realize the ISIS terrorists in the region are just as dangerous. On a related note, France and Germany have expressed worries that the strike could fuel a new migrant crisis, and they're correct; it could lead to more potential danger, so they're going to have to prove they can prevent more from coming to Europe.
