Finally, we can say that when our President draws a line in the sand he won’t back off of it. President Trump is making a hard statement that America is and will be a worthy opponent once again should any other world leaders decide to act stupid again and he is being backed by the best of the best.
General “MAD DOG” Mattis has recently released a statement claiming that the airstrikes in Syria were widely successful. He claims the U.S. military achieved their goal, and the “Syrian government would be ill-advised ever again to use chemical weapons.”
Last week we launched 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles on the Shayrat airfield in Syria. The bombardment devastated the ammunition and fuel site and destroyed 20 percent of Syria’s operational aircraft, which was exactly what we wanted to happen to cripple the very area that the chemical attack was launched from. While the Shayrat runway is still in use it is considered “of idle military interest.”
The announcement of success came out after further analysis was conducted by the Department of Defense. Over 20 warplanes were destroyed in the bombardment. U.S. intelligence also concluded that chemical weapons were stored at the airfield, which was used to facilitate the chemical gas attack, which prompted the strike.
The devastating loss of military hardware will surely cause Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to be detoured from using the prohibited weapons in the future. Any further use of chemical weapons will only draw the ire of U.S. forces and will not be an effective tool for the Assad regime. The announcement of the Department of Defense vindicates the military strike authorized by President Trump.
Many were looking for errors before information was available because they were hoping the president would fail. However, we now know the strikes were highly successful. Casualties were minimized, and a clear message was sent around the world that America is once again a force to be reckoned with. The strike in NOW WAY indicates any future war with Syria. Syria will still continue to work with the Russians in their civil war, but they will not use chemical weapons. The strike by President Trump and Mattis serves to remind the world that the use of chemical weapons, along with other war crimes, will no longer be tolerated, as it once was under Obama’s reign.
Let us know how you feel about the General’s statement in the comments!!!
