U.S., allies launch missile attack on Syria in retaliation for using chemical weapons on civilians

(Worthy News) - The U.S. launched missile strikes on Syria Friday night in coordination with Britain and France in retaliation for Syria’s chemical-weapons attack on civilians last weekend.

President Trump announced the attack in a live televised statement from the White House, saying he had ordered “precision strikes.”

“A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway,” Mr. Trump said.

The strikes came around 9 p.m. in Washington, 4 a.m. Saturday in Damascus, and targeted three Syrian military installations involved with the use of chemical weapons. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  2. Pentagon didn't get what it wants.. forcing Trump to continue invasion & eventual control of Middle East ..OR.. ousting him for NOT continuing invasion of the Middle East. In BOTH, the Pentagon LOST. The Warhawks in the Pentagon hoping to lead the NWO military of a newly created One Word Government .. LOST! Well, we must remember that the Pentagon is still composed of mostly Obama approved Generals. President Trump needs to do a cleanout much like Obama did.
