Just days after Syrian forces violated the Geneva convention and used chemical weapons on their own people, United States President, Donald Trump answered back with 60 Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian air base where the chemical weapons originated.
U.S. officials say the Tomahawk missiles were fired from two warships in the Mediterranean Sea, targeting a government-controlled air base in Syria. -Fox News
It’s a bit early to make assumptions, but we can probably guess that this may not sit well with Vladimir Putin, a known ally to Syrian president, Bashar Assad. Putin has a reputation for his rash decision making and stubborn despotism. It’s mere speculation at this point, but probably naive to dismiss the possibility of an all out war with Syria, Russia, and Iran.
This is certainly a bold move by the president. One we aren’t used to seeing from the previous administration. We’ll have to see how it all pans out. Stay tuned.
