JUST IN: Syrian warplanes take off from air base hit by U.S., carry out strikes in Homs countryside - Syrian observatory for human rights.
Abu Ivanka al-Amreeki Arabs on social media are showering US President Donald Trump with thanks and praise after he ordered the first direct US military action against Syrian government forces. The US conducted the strikes on a Syrian air base in the early hours of Friday following a suspected chemical attack on a rebel-held town. Shortly after, some Arab social media users started referring to the president as Abu Ivanka - Father of Ivanka, as a sign of respect and endearment. Others referred to him as Abu Ivanka al-Amreeki - Father of Ivanka the American, complete with a religious beard.

Russia have sent a warship to the US ship that fired the missiles - it's closing in.
Peacocks just put their tail feathers up..
but its still a peacock.
Well America is pretty poor any winning wars over the last 50 years. They's be on to a loser fighting Syria never mind Russia.
Two warplanes took off from a central Syrian airbase Friday hours after it was struck by US missiles and carried out bombing raids nearby, a monitoring group
The Britain-based group said the aircraft targeted territory controlled by the Islamic State jihadist group, which holds parts of the central Syrian province of Homs.
Early on Friday morning, the US military fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at the Shayrat air field in response to a suspected chemical attack this week that has been widely blamed on the Damascus regime.
A Syrian military source told AFP that Syria’s armed forces were warned about possible US military action hours before the strike took place.
“We took precautions in more than one military point, including in the Shayrat airbase. We moved a number of airplanes towards other areas,” the source said.
US officials said Russia’s military in Syria had been informed of the strike beforehand in order to avoid casualties that could prompt a broader crisis.
The US said the missiles targeted radars, aircraft, and air defense systems and destroyed around 20 Syrian planes,
but said the runway was intact.
Russia’s military said the strike had an “extremely low” military impact, with fewer than half of the 59 missiles reaching the airbase
Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad's regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country. A report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme 'approved by Washington' is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund rebel forces in Syria to use chemical weapons. Barack Obama made it clear to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad last month that the U.S. would not tolerate Syria using chemical weapons against its own people.

For some Syrians in U.S., strikes turned Trump from villain to hero
well, that is interesting
Depressing false hope.
This was an exit from Syria, not an entrance. The civilian population is screwed.
