The U.S. military has launched more than 50 missiles aimed at Syria, NBC News reported.

Earlier Thursday, Reuters reported that a British diplomat had said the United Nations Security Council would not vote on Thursday on a draft resolution to condemn a deadly gas attack on Tuesday in a rebel-held area of northern Syria, but will continue negotiations.

Russia's deputy U.N. envoy, Vladimir Safronkov, warned that day of "negative consequences" if the U.S. carried out military strikes on Syria over the attack.

"We have to think about negative consequences, negative consequences, and all the responsibility if military action occurred will be on shoulders of those who initiated such doubtful and tragic enterprise," Safronkov told reporters when asked about possible U.S. strikes, adding that such consequences could be seen in Iraq and Libya.

Western countries have blamed President Bashar al-Assad's armed forces for Tuesday's attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun in a rebel-held area of northern Syria hit by government air strikes. Syria's government has denied responsibility.

Well.  I think most of have our answer as to how Trump would respond to conflict.  He went full out "Trump" ... didn't hesitate, didn't fully investigate AND Didn't Consult Congress!  I'm still shaking my head.  I don't know what to say right now.

He doesn't have to consult congress, initially.

49 US Tomahawk Missiles Rain Down On Shayrat Air Base in Syria

The United States blasted a Syrian air base with a barrage of cruise missiles Thursday night in fiery retaliation for this week's gruesome chemical weapons attack against civilians. President Donald Trump cast the U.S. assault as vital to deter future use of poison gas and called on other nations to join in seeking "to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria."

It was the first direct American assault on the Syrian government and Trump's most dramatic military order since becoming president just over two months ago. Announcing the assault from his Florida resort, Trump said there was no doubt Syrian President Bashar Assad was responsible for the chemical attack, which he said employed banned gases and killed dozens

How about saying nothing?
Until you become a member of the Intelligence community, I don't see where you can whine and hint that a direct response to an atrocious gassing of innocent men, women and children is a bad thing!?

Assad was warned by Obama and others about using these weapons ... (which he has done before) and was told that there would be consequences!

You want 4 or 8 more years of a WEAK President?

With the unchecked tactical use of chemical weapons and no other adults in the room, including Europe .. Someone needed to respond!

We wasted the airfield, not the capitol city.
No troops were deployed and a message was sent to the Russians that they should have spanked somebody for it.

Trump was tested here. That he responded to this, ultimately, is a good thing.

This was more than a message to Assad, this was a wake up call for all the little dictators around the world to "Get your shit in order" you might be next, don't test US' resolve. Hear that Little Kim?

'We have a big problem' in North Korea: Trump


NORTH Korea is ready to deliver the “most ruthless blow” if provoked by the United States, its ambassador to Moscow said overnight, after US President Donald Trump pledged to keep building up defences against Pyongyang. (see graphic:

“Our army has already said that if there will be even the smallest provocation from the United States during exercises, we are ready to deliver the most ruthless blow,” Interfax news agency quoted ambassador Kim Hyong-Jun as saying.
“We have the readiness and ability to counter any challenge from the US,” he was quoted as saying.

Mr Trump on Wednesday pledged to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that the US would “continue to strengthen its ability to deter and defend itself and its allies with the full range of its military capabilities,” a day after Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan (East Sea).

I think it would be wise to stay out  of the Syrian mess. Nothing we do there will make things better.

I see it as Trump drawing a RED line his way.

This was a clear message, not only to Syria, but to the world. Trump could take out all the airfields and Assad and Putin know it. No talking, just action. I am impressed with this move.

So much for U.N. ambassador Susan Rice and President Obama telling the truth about chemical weapons in Syria. Also vise visa when President Bush stated that Iraq sent it's chemicals to Syria.

Yes. Trump sent a message that he's willing to take action - maybe too willing.

No idea why he wouldn't consult congress. It appears he had the authority to call for the limited response, but still would have thought he would have used the event to build relation with some in congress. But I would bet he thought about it - figured that the Dims would try to block him. Then he'd be stuck having to override congress. If half or more of congress said, "no go", could Trump still pull the trigger? I'm guessing that's what he was thinking about.

I've been offline - was driving 18 hours yesterday hearing about SCOTUS, Rice, Nunes, and the China visit (they just got off the plane and are walking down the ramp ... thanks for telling me that ... yawn). I heard about these from every angle imaginable - like the chinese water torture. Yes - I was bored and the news wasn't helping. Then the missile launch was announced! I was in shock.

As I drove, I thought about some of the tidbits from all the different broadcasts concerning China, Russia, NK, and Syria. But here's what I wanted to add to this post. It's an unproven conspiracy theory, but I think it holds water.

North Korea and China are both communist countries and Trump is meeting with China now. Is it a coincidence that NK launched their test missiles a few days ago? Or did China and NK decide that NK should show a little aggression so that China could tell the US they would talk to NK in exchange for something ... a bargaining chit.

Tillerson is going to Russia next week. Is it a coincidence that Syria launched a chemical strike this week? Russia could have asked Syria to do it so that Russia can exchange their "control of Syria" as an economic bargaining chit with the US next week. They would not have suspected Trump's reaction based on his previous stance that the US should stay out because there's nothing in it for us. If that was the Russian plan, it backfired. And, if so, I would have liked to seen Putin's face when the WH called him to say that the missiles were being delivered.

None of this is supported by evidence, but the timing is very suspicious. Given Trump's America First agenda, these nations (especially China) will be looking for something to give them leverage.
