The purpose was not to destroy but to send a message, like experts said, the runaway can be repair over night even if the US had destroyed them, is very easy to do.
I can only imagine the certain bombs US have that could have created a crater big enough to bury the entire base, but that was not the purpose of the strike.
Assad is a dictator, a terrible, terrible human being...
But much like Saddam, he kept the wolves at the door...
Topple him and you'll have a much worse situation than Iraq.
