Syria strikes: International community reacts to US bombing of airfield

President Trump’s swift and telegraphed action to punish Syria for a suspected chemical weapons attack earlier this week, by pummeling a key air base with missiles, was roundly praised by leaders around the world.

Trump, who authorized the launch of 59 Tomahawk missiles from Navy warships in the Mediterranean Sea on an air base near Homs at 3:45 a.m local time, had said his thinking on Syria had changed following Tuesday’s chemical attack that left scores of civilians dead.

Although Russia and Syrian state television blasted the move as “aggression,” leaders from around the world solemnly praised the act as a measured and fair response to dictator Bashar al-Assad’s suspected use of chemical weapons in the town of Idlib on Tuesday.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement that “In both word and action” Trump “sent a strong and clear message” that “the use and spread of chemical weapons will not be tolerated.”

    LMFBO in Case you do not get it ( Laughing My Fuckin Balls off. He bombed a freakin runway after letting both the Russians and Assad know what was going to happen and even you fools say he bombed an airport some tar or cement. Everything else including the planes that dropped the gases were long gone thanks to 45. Go ahead make a big deal out of it few with any capability of a thought process are excited about this bullshit !!

    • David Lindahl

      Not so. 20 planes were destroyed along with hangars and ammo supplies.

  • Oldawg70

    Treat the enemy as the enemy! America has many enemies, most are within! Search and Destroy! It is called “Self Defense”!

  • BOC

    Idlib where these attacks occurred are an ISIS and Al Nusra stronghold. The MO of these low life subhuman piece of excrement pukes is to embed themselves in hospitals and use women and children as human shields against an attacking enemy. It’s till quite possible they perpetrated this heinous act to initiate an act of retaliation against Assad. My main concern is this was knee jerk reaction without having all of the facts.

    Does this attack change anything in the region? Doubtful.

    Will it make our enemies stand up and take notice after having a weak ass pussy as Commander in Chief for the past 8 years, who’s currently on a retreat at Marlon Brando’s estate in Tahiti with 30 other dudes playing the pivot in the circle jerk? Possibly.

    While the Middle East has been de-stabilized through the meddling by Obama and that Cryogenically Preserved Ultra She-Devil Hillary Clinton, the US does not want, nor does it need to put more “Boots on the Ground” of our brave military to unseat another subhuman dictator, Assad. in a country that does not serve our interests, the only effort that may require such action is to root out and destroy the Dirty Muslim scum mentioned in my first paragraph.

  • CaMaven

    When Trump draws a “red line” he means it- unlike “Obama”

    • CaMaven

      But I wonder how they can be so sure that the Assad regime did the chemical attack.

      • Retired

        Are you say Assad let ISIS use his planes ????

  • snowyriver

    It was a show.. If you use chemical weapons this is what will happen to you..The missiles could have been aimed at the government offices and then many would have been killed, govt officials as well as civilians.. This was not done

    • snowyriver

      I have seen since that the chemical weapons Syria had were stored beneath the air-field that Trump destroyed.

  • Michael Lloyd

    “leaders from around the world solemnly praised the act as a measured and fair response to dictator Bashar al-Assad’s suspected use of chemical weapons”
    A fair response to SUSPECTED use of chemical weapons? SUSPECTED?
    How about this? “We suspected he was an infidel, so we considered it to be a fair response to cut off his head.”

    • Bob

      Let’s see, folks “suspected” that the Russians colluded with the Trump campaign, and that’s enough for libbies in the House to think of Impeachment. You “suspected” that Russians hacked Hillary’s emails, and that was used as an excuse for why she lost. Funny how you can accept “suspected” as fact there and not here. And there was no reason to doubt that the attack was a chemical attack based on medical and other reports. So it was either the Syrian AF carrying out the attack, or they gave the resources to ISIS to carry it out. Or are you going to blame the Russians for this also?

  • justinwachin

    This action sends a message to several leaders around the world that things are running different in the United States now. Iran did you get the message? Kim Jong Un did you get the message?

  • Karin Isbell

    Go for it,President Trump!

  • tom cook

    There is something here that stinks; Assad had nothing to gain from use of chemical weapons. My bet is that the U.S. was the culprit for false flag purpose.

    • MrThorox77

      the only thing that stinks is your is you stinking thinking lol

    • tzaarz

      It sure wouldn’t be the first time that the globalist warmongers in our government have used false flags to influence a President’s decision. I don’t think Assad did this either but appearances carry more importance than the actual truth. So no matter who is responsible Trump was sending a clear message of power and control that should help with dealing with China and Korea. Even though the actual damage was minimal his actions were huge. We have a real Boss in charge now.

      • Glenda Jordan

        Good post tzaarz. I like your matter-o-fact/practical outlook. Sure anythings possible when it comes to globalists but Trump now looks to be a real CIC…an authority figure this country hasn’t seen imo since Reagan days.

        • tzaarz

          Well thank you and yes it’s about time we have someone that takes charge and can inspire confidence. I couldn’t be more pleased with how President Trump is doing. I think he’s the perfect man for what this country and world is going through right now.

          • Glenda Jordan

            Agree…I had couple other faves in the beginning but I thank God often for he knows best! Trump is most definitely the man for the job during these troubled, evil times.

  • Tiger

    It was the right thing to do and he did it the right way. Putin had to condemn it because they broke International Law. Even though today Russia sent a ship to where we are. Also today Putin made it clear he has no control over what Assad does, that is a good sign because it looks like Trump will take Assad out of power.

    Although I am not pleased with a few things overall Trump is proving to be a powerful and just president. The world sees this.

    • Glenda Jordan

      Agree Tiger and stand w/ the president 100%. I’m however some confused as to why the lefty progs are pleased…raises a lot of questions for me. We are a nation divided…did they just do a 180? Why do they agree w/ Trump’s actions?? Could the Deep State be behind this?

      • Tiger

        Glenda if you look back in Assad’s history he has used chemicals on his people before in 2013. The weapons from Iraq went to Syria. We knew this way back when. Assad and others have WMD Chemical and Biological and like Hussein who killed Kurd with them so does Assad.

        The Left isn’t stupid, they know that if they complained about Trump taking out this place they would look even worse than they do now.

        • Glenda Jordan

          Thanks Tiger…I value your opinions and info you share. I’m some aware of Assad’s evil deeds….maybe it’s just my distrust in all these days…all the deceit, corruption, satanic inspired, etc (things left) has me question if there is something more…more evil players than just Assad.

          • Tiger

            Well thank you Glenda it makes me feel good and also keeps me straight trying to make sure I have the sources to back up what I say, when someone like you gives me a compliment.

            Well dear I am with you on a couple of things that I really don’t like that were in the news today. One was that Kelly put the very Obama person who was releasing so many people right back in charge and the border guards are furious, then this article, the very woman who was a por refugee big shot back in her slot on the refugee stuff. So one time he allows this well……but two times? So you are right to question and I wrote him nasty grams on both of these things today.

          • Glenda Jordan

            Funny I just finished reading an article @ DML’s website…I noticed this one you posted just haven’t had chance to look yet (multi tasking) but soon off to work (yuk over nite). Good eve to you friend.

          • Tiger

            Take care dear.

      • Dee

        Very possible they are , my first thoughts were that too . The dems supporting it do however want there to be an open door policy to allowing these refugees to come in. They are trying to push that spin . When the dems agree with anything you know they have a decietful motive . Those Safe Zones Need to set up Over There Now and Fast !

        • Glenda Jordan

          Isn’t it crazeee Dee where we are at today….if the D-mented party agrees we immediately think whats wrong w/ this pic!? I’m on the NE Coast (blue state) and I remember back in the day we could agree on many issues (even many dem family members voted for Reagan). Been over taken by socialists/globalists which causes our distrust I guess. I really like tzaarz post (above)…he had me understand basically the globalists will always do their evil but w/ this incident Trump actions now show we finally have a true commander in the WH.

  • Murph68

    Any world leader who would disagree with this “act of aggression” given the fact that Assad used chemical weapons on defenseless women and children is amoral at best and likely unfit to govern.

  • Retired

    We have a president that the world will change their view on now compared to the wimp for the last 8 years .The media is going to eat a lot of crow for the next 4 years .

    • Dissolute (yep, irredeemably)

      Ain’t it usual and customary that the statesmen of the world praise Trump’s action and Little Timmy Kaine and other libtards here criticize him?

      Unamerican twerps.

      • Glenda Jordan

        I trust Kaine and the few others to be the morons they be…what I don’t trust or understand is the by and large lefty progs that are pleased w/ the president’s actions. Something just ain’t right cause I know the D-mented party didn’t all of a sudden decide to join hands and make nice w/ Trump and repubs.
