The U.S. military launched 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield late on Thursday, in the first direct American assault on the government of President Bashar al-Assad since that country’s civil war began six years ago.

The operation, which the Trump administration authorized in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack killing scores of civilians this week, dramatically expands U.S. military involvement in Syria and exposes the United States to heightened risk of direct confrontation with Russia and Iran, both backing Assad in his attempt to crush his opposition.

President Trump said the strike was in the “vital national security interest” of the United States and called on “all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria. And also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.”

We're not going to end it through military means.

"Human nature" means we will ALWAYS have some "terrorism". It can't be truly ended by ANY means.
What's on your mind...

Trump is a moron and has caved in to the warmongers. He has occupied territory in a sovereign state and have now openly attacked them even though they have not attacked him. There has been no independent inquiry and insufficient evidence at this stage to link deployment of the gas to the Syrian army. This  illegal act will almost certainly lead to an escalation of the war and result in the gloves coming off. Hardly a way to end the slaughter and bloodshed.

What is human nature? Good or bad?
