Trump Declares ‘Mission Accomplished’ After Illegaly Bombing Syria

Following days of heightening tensions as a result of numerous threats from Trump, primarily via Twitter, the US President finally issued details of a joint US, UK, and French attack on Syria. Trump announced these “precision strikes” from the White House on Friday, which he says were set to hit “targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad,” in response to an alleged use of chemical weapons last week in the suburbs of Damascus.
