    May God watch over and protect our armed forces and those of our NATO Allies! Prayers sent for our brothers and sisters in harm’s way.

    Fox says that it is the US, France & the UK. Likewise that it is mostly Tomahawks. It's early yet.

    What a moron. Just today Mattis was out saying that there is no evidence of chemical weapons use by Assad.
    I'm really hoping Mueller is successful and he is quick about it.

    Trump says it's against Chem capabilities, reports from Syria saying AA systems in Damascus are active and firing.

    There's much more going on behind the scenes that most don't know about. Trump is going to pull troops out and Syria is doing great, so Assad had no reason to do this. However, war is profitable for those on the dark side, so this is most likely a move by those in the shadows to keep us over there. So even if we are bombing, what or who are we bombing?? What if we're not bombing Assad but the third party who's trying to start this war, those who carried out this false flag?

    Right now, NK is thinking...yeah, we need to quietly keep on with the nuclear weapons program. If Syria had nuclear weapons, no way Trump would strike them whenever he wanted.

    Sounds like Maddog kept him from hitting regime related targets and limiting it to chem assets. Iranians are also granting Russians airbase rights to station bombers inside Iran.

    I'll supply both you [Language Edited by Moderator] with guns ammo and a plane ticket to Syria if you're so eager for war.

    The Syrians got pretty close with the help of the Norks. Their reactor was a month or 2 away from opening and the only reason Israel found out was because they broke into a Syrian scientist's hotel room and found pictures of the head of the Nork nuclear program in the middle of a desert.

    Assad has nominal control here. The Iranians and Russians are calling the shots. Syria doesn't have near the oil wealth that Iran does and has always kinda been their B. Since the civil war, they have grown much more reliant on the Iranians and the Russians are providing the tech and firepower. On top of that you have a lot of militia groups operating and they tend to take orders like suggestions.

    That being said, Assad is in control of the Sarin. It's the same reason you see so few captured shoulder fired AA missiles in rebel hands, the regime knows they are valuable and protects them. If an area is looking even remotely like it will be lost, they move the asset.

    Do you really think that? It's pure speculation, but I think this would be more likely to show that Trump is willing to take risks to strike.

    I hope the intel they got is good. I cannot think of a good reason Assad would order this. It's still possible a lower level guy did it, or maybe Russia is trying to figure out if Trump draws his red lines with permanent markers or not.

    I'm not ready to endorse this strike yet. But I'm also very sure that I do not have the level of intel Trump has either. I think Trump trusts Mattis, and I do trust Mattis.

    Fingers crossed, I hope we aren't screwing up.
