Sad moment really.

I read that the US is going after runways. Trump met with President Xi today at mar al lago or whatever Trump calls it and there may be a connection.

It is being broadcast on all the Fox stations. Report..60 have now been launched and some towards the storage areas, as well as airbases.

Today the UN postponed a resolution about the Syrian gassing of it's citizens. It was told...UN do something or the US might. Well, looks like this administration does not draw "red lines" and then ignore them.

Who knows what this will lead to...I doubt if anyone truly does.

Cruise missiles pack a wallop with a conventional warhead and are nuclear capable. I did not know this but read today that a small detachment of the American Army is on the ground in Syria.

Tomahawks aren't good runway cratering devices.

If they launched 60 of them, it was to take that entire airbase out.

A small problem being there were probably Russians at the base, and Russian assets.

The next shoe to drop is are there any Russian casualties.

That's going to make things interesting.

The Russians are no match for US Naval power in the Mediterranean, so they won't try to go toe to toe with us that way. So it remains to see what they do now. If there are Russian casualties, Putin won't take it lying down.

Trump isn't remotely intelligent enough to direct military or diplomatic power at anyone, so I am curious who is making the decisions.
Thanks from Clara007

POTUS gives the final go.

Funny though that in the Yemeni raid skews blamed Trump, now he says someone else makes the decisions. Same old same old skews.

And we know one thing, Trump is far more intelligent than skews.

Trump didn't decide anything. He has somebody in the Pentagon making decisions for him. Neither him or his Sec of State know how to do anything but make sleazy real estate deals, and drill for oil. A weak leadership to say the least. Would you care for me to post the multiple times Trump told Obama not to intervene in Syria?

It's now being reported the Russians got a heads up from somebody the attacks were coming. I wouldn't talk to much right now, and remember, there are hundreds of US troops on the ground in Syria right now.

What happens if Russia aids Assads forces to launch successful strikes against them? Now we have flag draped coffins landing at Andrews.

You fuck tards have a long history of saying giddy up to mouth before you hitch your brain up to it.

If I'm a CO of a team in country there right now knowing Don the Con is my Commander in Chief, i'm real fucking nervous about right now.
Thanks from Clara007

The US Military has its own GPS satellite system which is more accurate than the civilian satellite GPS system. I don't know if Tomahawks use GPS but most likely they do. Tomahawks can put it in the breadbasket and make direct hits on runways missing Russian fighter jets on the tarmac. Poor pitiful Russian fighter jets can't take off or land.
Thanks from Jimmyb

One of the retired generals on CNN said "this is a VERY short turn around" for a military action. That is a concern. Most attacks are a slow progression of intel gathering and LOTS of advisors/advice. We have every right to be nervous....and this is exactly what those of us who do NOT trust DJTRUMP are worried about. It was a very big, continuing conversation that took place during the campaign. Trump is impulsive, careless, reckless and bullheaded. Not good qualities when military action is considered.
I admit that perhaps Obama was too cautious, but impulsive action (if that's what this is) is scary.
Thanks from skews13 and Hollywood
