    A small town, Khan Sheikhoun, a suburb of Damascus was hit by 110 missile strikes sent by the US, UK and French off shore ships last night. This small town is one of the last strongholds of Syrian rebels who had recently begun evacuating.

    This coalition military strike was in response to the allies believing that the Syrian military had bombed that small town with chemical weapons, killing almost 100 people.

    Among the 110 missiles that were fired Syria reports that most of them were intercepted by their weapons defense system. The attack was meant to hit 3 Syrian factories capably of manufacturing chemical weapons. Each target was hit.

    President Trump had been indicating for the past week that he was going to strike Syria because of this latest alleged chemical bombing of a civilian area. He was militarily supported by the United Kingdom and France.

    Allies of the US support last night's missile strike, even if they didn't participate in it. Foes of the US are strongly condemning it as a war crime against a sovereign state.

    Are we looking at the potential for the start of World War 3? Will Islamic/Arab radical groups become even more determined in their quest to hit targets allied with the US?

    Trump has threatened that more missile strikes against Syria are to come.

    Bashr Al Assad is a criminal, a man that goes to any extent to remain in power. Far from politics or blind fanfare, I believe we should've invaded Syria in 2003 instead of Iraq. Everything we went to seek in Iraq was actually in Syria. Enough said

    Forgot to mention that @Ivanchuk posted up a similar thread prior to the US-led attack.

    Well he is a dictator and any dictator in the minds of any democratic society is evil and cruel.

    Prior to ISIS paying Syria an over-extended visit 6 or 7 years ago I don't remember hearing anything about Syria: even back when the US invaded Iraq. But now ISIS has apparently been largely booted from the country and has left a huge power vacuum in it's place.

    Syria battled ISIS and now they have to continue battling half a dozen armed anti-government forces, some of whom are allied with the US (like the rebel group that occupied the town that was hit with the chemical bombs last week).

    And then there's Russia, a strong Syrian ally, with their boots on the ground and Putin (perhaps a dictator himself in a sense) has no patience for the US intervening on his allies.

    I agree about the whole Saddam Hussein fiasco, the US should never have become involved in that one. But Syria was not on the map and Assad's father was not doing the same shit to his people that Saddam was doing.

    @DeathHand , of course most people tend to believe the over flow of deceiving news. Before the invasion the topic was Saddam, Zarqawi, Osama, and the real threat was ignored. There is so much that went down in those 2 years following the 9/11 attacks that by the time we went in the public even congress believed all the farse. I was perplexed and couldn't believe Powell's address at the UN. But history repeats it self now a Ba'ath party regime that really has everything Saddam did not have has 15 years late become our target. Sad but true

    103 Tomahawk missiles launched at Syria and only 32 hit targets the rest shot down. Targets which are of zero tactical advantage. Most of the targets that were hit were abandoned and had not been used for years. The missiles cost alone for this strike was probably in the range of $210,000,000 and that's not including the boats, aircraft, manpower, and whatever other costs are associated with such a massive strike. All for an alleged chemical attack by a rebel group(moderate head choppers)who were having their asses handed to them at the time. Also, an alleged chemical attack that zeroes tangible evidence was provided for. They barely even let the OPCW inspectors land on the ground and do their job. Tax dollars hard at work folks!

    We are back on the slippery slope as in Iraq and the phantom weapons of mass destruction. I just can't wrap my ahead around Assad using chemical weapons at this stage. They are winning, and in a big way. No way Russia would allow him to either. It makes zero tactical sense!

    No one deserves that. It's genocide to the fullest. Those infants and families did nothing wrong. That jerk isn't a dictator he cannot even take control of his entire country. It's divided and sections are run by isis...kurds...etc. He's a coward . He finally got a warning that maybe he needs to stop. What a complete monster. Bless all those babies. What a horrid death.

    Agree @JennaC79 Assad is so coward he builds his arsenal depots near residential areas to blame collateral damage on anyone who attacks him and his thugs. It is sad and brutal but tyrants like him must be dealt with as swiftly and decisively as possible

    I agree totally. Those people need help. We aren't invading and assisting either side...all we did was demolish weapons he was using on civilians...who couldn't take care of themselves.

    what a lot of people miss is, no matter what is supposedly "justified" because of tit for tat shit .. we were all little children once. Can you think back to when you were a kid and find any justification for being hurt like that? Kids don't give two fucks about political junk .. kids don't even care or can differentiate between races of people or their political / religious or in grained bullshit. Play war games in your stupid sand pits and keep children out of it. Nothing burns by biscuit more than children being dragged into shit they don't deserve or have anything to do with. Fucking poison gas,are y'all kidding me? special place in Hell for you lot !!

    For my part, it's no. I understand the Americans' point of view on the subject. But for a French like me this attack is not justified. Too bad we have a nice doggie US as president.

    It's no different than Obama's missile strikes in Libya a few years ago.

    And look at Libya now. The place is fucked, it's now a failed state. Yes Gadaffi may have not been the nicest fella on earth, but the majority of the Libyan people were better off then they are now without him. The same will and does apply to Syria.
