Strike on Syria is a success

I’ve got a lot of complaints about Trump, but the Syrian air strike is one that I consider an outright success.    It was done in close cooperation of our allies.  By all reports, the objectives were military targets, directly tied to chemical weapons production or research.   The Assad regime promised to destroy all their chemical weapons, but obviously they lied.   Russia still backs Assad.   Military solutions are the last resort, but that’s exactly where we were with Assad.   I listen to the discussion at the UN, and was very proud of Nikki Haley, as she forcefully defended our actions, along with the French and British ambassadors to the UN.   General Mattis was equally impressive.

I won’t go into the longer term strategy for now.  Let’s give credit where credit is well deserved on the tactical decision and execution.

Stay tuned,

Dave
