United States conducts missile strike against Syria

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Reportedly, the United States Thursday night launched dozens of Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase in the wake of a horrific chemical attack by Syrain forces on citizens earlier.

The USS Porter and USS Ross fired Tomahawk missiles into Syria in retaliation for the Assad regime using nerve agents against its people, the U.S Department of Defense confirmed. President Donald J. Trump ordered the attack on Al-Shayrat Air Base, the base from which the chemical attack on Syria’s Idlib province was launched.

“Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians,” Trump said in a statement to the nation. “Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror. It is in the vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services’ Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee and combat veteran, issued the following statement on President Trump’s decision to launch a missile strike against Syria:

“Tonight, President Trump took action against Bashar al-Assad’s regime, and followed through with the red line drawn by the Obama administration.

“Assad is a war criminal. His regime, backed by Russia, continues to destabilize Syria and target civilians. This has been a tragic reality for the past six years and has gone on far too long.

“Unlike the Obama administration, the Trump administration is showing global leadership and we must work to find an end to the root causes of this crisis.”
