As previewed earlier tonight, the US has launched air strikes against Syria, with NBC reporting that under instructions from President Trump, US ships have launched over 50 Tomahawk missiles, striking Syria. NBC adds that only tomahawks missiles fired, no fixed wing aircraft involved, for now.

According to CBS, the U.S. launched about 60 Tomahawk missiles against the Syrian airfield where the plane that allegedly carried out the chemical attack took off from; hangars and planes were targeted, a U.S. official says.  Two Navy destroyers launched Raytheon missiles against Syria two days after Bashar al-Assad’s regime used poison gas to kill scores of civilians

The decision to strike in Syria marks a stark reversal for President Trump, who during his presidential campaign faulted past U.S. leaders for getting embroiled in conflicts in the Middle East

  1. Bashar al-Assad’s regime did not use chemical weapons against their own people, it’s far more likely that they stuck a catch of chemical weapons belonging to rebels that have been supplied by the west.
