    Trump launches military strike against Syria

    (CNN)The United States launched a military strike on a Syrian government target in retaliation for their chemical weapons attack on civilians earlier in the week.

    On President Donald Trump's orders, US warships launched between 50-60 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian government airbase where the warplanes that carried out the chemical attacks were based, US officials said.
    A US defense official said the strike was targeted on runway, aircraft and fuel points. The missiles were launched from warships in the Eastern Mediterranean. Strikes are over "until another decision is made," the official said.

    The strikes are the first direct military action the US has taken against the leadership of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's six-year civil war and represent a substantial escalation of the US' military campaign in the region, which could be interpreted by the Syrian government as an act of war.

    After 6 years of civil war and massacres the US finally takes concrete steps against Assad for his warcrimes. Obama chickened out but Trump, the man allegedly put in place by Russia has done it. Let us see what Russia's reaction is.

    US will use SDF to attack Assad. Turkey warned the Russians to stay away from them. But morally right move by Trump to react. Everyone goes for own interests.

    Limited strikes so far, don't get your hopes too high. Apparently the tarmac at the targeted base was not even hit, Russian were informed of the strike.

    As for me, it is pure and classical war crime and agression. I hope, it will be war between NATO and Russia, and USA will be eliminated.

    Ok.
    There were started 59 Tatcomes from two Arleigh Burkies. Standard payload of Burke - 32 Tomahawks. So, they waste all what they have in East Mediterranean.
    How many hits base - we dunno, but presumably - less that half.
    Airfields not damaged.
    Destroyed 9 shelters from 40.
    Presumably 5 Syrian soldiers was killed, 9 - wounded.

    As for me, it was just a show on the blood. F-king showmen.
