    Reports are that we just launched approx 60 cruise missiles from two ships in the Mediterranean. The targets were two Syrian airbases.

    I wonder how long until Russia hits American targets, or we cause an issue by accidentally hitting Russian assets in the area.

    Tonight's 59 launched missiles cost taxpayers $93,810,000 or $1,580,000 per missile.

    When turd-world dictators actually USE nukes, chemical, or biological weapons, and IF it's not 100% obviously righteous and necessary that they did that,

    the USA and the rest of the world should pound them.
    I'm glad Trump did this.


    Remember, Obama and Clinton ordered missile strikes, too.
    Even "doves" know that some provocations call for a hawkish response.

    Trump!

    He has selected the right people to take this on. They are not sitting around a camp fire singing.

    I am totally confused. I thought the proper international response was a #stopthegassing hashtag campaign.

    That was Obama's response. Trump prefers #buhbye.

    Wait... so my freedom is in Syria now?

    I need to keep a closer watch on it. It keeps running away to places that either have oil we can steal or brown people who dare to pray to a different invisible friend than the rest of us!

    Have you written your senator about your support for a massive military action on the African continent?

    America is a sovereign nation. So is every other country. Not our circus, not our monkeys.

    The middle East will always be violent, there will always be atrocities, there will always be Muslim theocracy that takes over, and the majority of the people will always prefer it that way. Leave them to their own choices and stop wasting American lives and resources accomplishing nothing.
