It also paints a big target for organized terrorism.

At the end of the day it's the plebs (common folk) that don't get rich and usually die in any form of terrorist based retaliatory strike.

I'm really getting nervous about this.

I have been trying to keep up with this thread and also watching the news.

Have we just declared war?

This is one of the things that came to my mind.


Am I being silly?

Are we headed into a serious war?

The secretary says Russia has either been complicit or "simply incompetent" in failing to deliver on its end of the agreement.

The only drawback to the Tomahawk is that they're slow and non-stealthy. The Block IV is capable of retargeting in flight, but they're still vulnerable when caught by defenses. They may have tagged a few, but I would be willing to bet that you're right and most of them got to the target.

Ok, let's say I agree with you 100%.

Did we take out Assad??

Is he dead or out of power now??


I agree that tyrants and murderers need to be taken out of power. At the same time, who put us in charge of doing that in other nations???

Where's the international agreement that says whenever someone steps out of line America gets to shoot missiles at them???

I get what you're saying but how is it that there is always so much confusion on who's supposed to do what and why and we are always in the middle of it killing lots of people???

How many more people are going to die by our hands now to get this one crazy a-hole??


Anyone else can take a whack at him too, but they most likely do not have the means in the theater to do so.

Breaking. . . . NBC NEWS: President Trump has launched over 50 Tomahawk missiles, striking Syria


mobile.twitter.com...


Trump is most definitely un-invited to Putin's next birthday party.


So have any lefties mentioned this takes a tomahawk, pun intended, to the Trump is Putin's puppet nonsense we've heard for the last year?

Just curious. These aren't the actions of someone in Putin's pocket.


It could have been for show. For all we know, Putin could have told Trump to do it.

MIC everywhere rejoice. I am sure Putin can now sell more weapons to ME countries. May be Putin knew Trump is the best thing that can happen to Russia, just like Bush's presidency.

This is Iraq 3.0 - Russia's resurgence occurred when US was caught up endless war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now it is time to make Russia Great again.

well apparently the US intel sources DO have a video of the gas being dropped from the plane in Syria, How cool is that of course many of you will say it's just CGI but it was already shown to the Russians. (Just reported by Shep smith on FOX news 10:56 PM CST.) SO it seems this WAS Justified. SO it seems Putin's Puppet Poo'd on Putin......


Friday is going to be an AWESOME NEWS day


How's it justified?

Were those American children?

Crap, come to think of it... I've never heard of Missile strikes in Rwanda, have you?

The flight profile keeps them hidden in the ground clutter on radar returns (same as with the RGM-84 Harpoon missiles I worked on).

They told the Russians ahead of time so they wouldn't shoot them down. Tomahawk is sub sonic, tracking and engagement with newer Russian anti missile systems is better now than whenever you worked on Harpoons. Besides initial launch signature, slow rate of salvo fire, and obvious what the target was after the first few missiles impacted, would have been a turkey shoot.

The Russians held back because the targets were Syrian assets, not Russian.

Just like in Vietnam.

The more I read about this, the more fishy it all seems. Just days after the Trump admin signals a shift in their thinking on Assad, he decides to trigger their wrath by using chemical weapons? And anger both the U.S. and Russia?

As a few other posters have said, this has false flag written all over it.

If governments and other authority figures actually were out to fix anything, they would work themselves right out of a job and would no longer be considered "Needed" by the people who fund their adventures.

The whole world is a scam.

Yah, and with the majority of them most likely being STOT (Simultaneous Time On Top), that many missiles would completely overwhelm any defenses.

Hell, all I needed to sink a cruiser with Harpoons was 4. Two to skim impact, and two to pop up. Confuses the crap out of any point defense system, and only need two to get through to break the ship in half.

You have a good point. Trumps actions seemed erratic. Why get involved in the one conflict that he said we should have stayed out of? Trump is suspected of being in Putin's pocket, so now he makes a sudden strike. Its a psy-op.

Now that the terrorists know Trump can be easily manipulated, I expect more suspicious chemical weapons attacks to occur in the future.

Very convenient that these Tomahawks avoided anything that could be used to make these alleged chemical weapons, and any stockpiles of them, don't you think?

Of course it's hard to hit something that doesn't exist.

We'll see. Only thing I do know is what's on the MSM is not the real story.

Per usual.

Sure, why not? I doubt it set Putin back on his agenda. It was probably an expendable asset.

Maybe Russia backed them. That could've given them the confidence.

Shepard Smith reporting that Trump wants to build a coalition to fight Syria.


The end game in this involves something that Trump has talked about - safe zones in Syria (ground and air both), amid the obliteration of ISIS in Syria, for the eventual return of the refugees and the long path of reconstruction (using oil reserves..?).

It cannot have taken place without tacit Russian consent and Iranian restraint via Russia.

Therefore they have to be careful not to kill Russians in the process, and to begin to collaborate in the establishment of these safe zones.

This Is the first stage in a softening up of the territory for a limited invasion or incursion by US troops to establish those zones after ISIS falls in Raqqa and elsewhere.

This goes way beyond McCain's version of continuing to arm Syrian rebel forces and who knows who and to where those go..

This is the right and only way forward, but Tillerson better get to Russia and via Russia, Iran ASAP to prevent blowback and some sort of tailspin into ME chaos.

This in my view, is like the center of a knot of interweaving threads, or like the center piece of a global security puzzle that must be solved and that must also lead to a mid-East peace agreement in Israel and Palestine.

As to North Korea there is no military option in that case, only a deal brokered by China, which will see Kim Jung Un lose his nukes in exchange for the lifting of sanctions and the opportunity to join the International community, so strangely trade is also at the heart of it all including the lifting of sanctions on Russia.

It's all interconnected and it will lead to either peace, and security, and global prosperity, or to an ever-widening sphere of chaos and war (for the doom porn people).

I see this as also sending a message to North Korea, to put more pressure on there, but it can't be any more than a bluff because of what that fat bastard can unleash both conventionally and nuke-wise if he felt he was under threat (of his life) or cornered and susceptible to a revolution or overthrow - the North Koreans are starving and really hurting economically after years of sanctions.

This is not an isolated limited strike by any means, but part of a larger puzzle or tapestry.

That's my best analysis of the current situation.

Best regards, and with prayers for peace, security and a lasting mutual prosperity and global ..love,

Ankh
