(Before It's News)

The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles Thursday night at a Syrian airfield in response to what it believes was Syria’s use of banned chemical weapons that killed at least 100 people, U.S. military officials told NBC News.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Just in case you were wondering, our new president, unlike the previous president, does not intend to “lead from behind” on the global stage. During the campaign Trump promised swift and decisive military action when needed, with little to no advance warning. Tonight is yet another promise kept from President Trump. 

Two U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea fired 59 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha’irat in Homs province in western Syria, the officials said. That’s the airfield from which the United States believes the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad fired the banned weapons.

There was no immediate word on casualties. U.S. officials told NBC News that people were not targeted and that aircraft and infrastructure at the site were hit, including the runway and gas fuel pumps.

“Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children,” President Donald Trump said in remarks from Mar-a-Lago, his family compound in Palm Beach, Florida.

“It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons,” said Trump, who called on other countries to end the bloodshed in Syria.

A White House official told NBC News that more than two dozen members of Congress were briefed by administration officials on the missile strike. Vice President Mike Pence returned to the White House after having gone home for dinner Thursday evening and monitored the events from the Situation Room, officials said.

Syrian television characterized the missile strike “as American aggression” Friday morning. But Ahrar Al Sham, the largest Syrian armed rebel group, told NBC News it “welcomes any U.S. intervention through surgical strikes that would deter the Assad regime capabilities to kill civilians and shorten the suffering of our people.”

Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a spokesman for the Defense Department, said initial assessments showed that the airfield was severely damaged, reducing Syria’s capability to deliver chemical weapons. source

  • Aren’t there Russian troops at that base?

    Trump strengthening ties?

    You can tell by the extensive MSM coverage of the gas attack it was done on by us to give us a reason to do this. It was widely covered, to make sure everyone is aware. They blame Assad, now we’re staying a war.

    Let’s see how many Russian troops got killed when we dropped 59 cruise missiles on their home away from home, and how happy Putin will be about strikes on a sovereign state that violate international law.

    Looks like we got a new Bush Jr.

  • I’ll bet all 69 hit women and children…..American=coward and fraud…….After J Kennedy….and no correlation R Kennedy….It’s safe to say an American…is a coward and a phony fraud…..I want enemy troops here…so we can round up those flag terrorist…who could not even write their own star spangled banner…traitors…oh and Washington refused to be your first president……look at his fake monument…real American…aye..:)lost 1776lol

  • Sounds like a good pretext to sink those two warships, but no American sailors will be targeted, only the ships.

  • TC

    Justified or not, it was definitely illegal.

    Under the UN Charter signed by the United States, military action against another state is legal only to defend agains invasion or if authorized by the Security Council. The UN Charter was set up after WWII to prevent this type of aggression.

    It is against the law to go accross the street and attack your neighbor even if you believe he has done something wrong. The fact that our neighbors cannot smply sttack us whenever they get in the mood is the very foundation of civilization that allows us to feel secure in our homes.

  • Yes Trump now listens to ISIS when they say they were atacked using chemical weapons because one of there bomb making factories got blown up by the assad government forces.

    Trump like Obummer is just a puppet of the bankers so the plan has not changed regardelss of what trump said to get people to vote in a fixed system but the real bad news is that Putin is also a banker puppet and won’t do a thing about the attack today on Syria apart from more and more talking
