US, UK and France launch military strikes on Syria

Sky News:-  The US, UK and France have launched military strikes on Syria following the suspected chemical attack by the Assad regime.

President Donald Trump confirmed “precision strikes” had been ordered on targets associated with the Syrian government’s chemical weapons programme.

In a televised address from the White House, Mr Trump said: “A short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad.”

Mr Trump said the military action was a “combined operation” with the armed forces of the UK and France.

Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed she had ordered British armed forces to conduct “co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons capability and deter their use”.

    There is no logical reason for attacks on “suspected” chemical weapons facilities, if you keep using the excuse that “Assad used chemicals on his people”; since the attacks themselves would be even more hazardous to the Syrian people.

    The three terrorist states, France, UK, and US, knew that no such chemical weapons facilities existed, and just wanted to hit out at Syria because their special forces embedded with ISIS were recently captured in East Ghouta, and their pleas to have them released have gone unheeded.

    The history of the US is a history of blatant lies used for starting wars; the military industrial complex (the only viable industry left in the US) only makes profits because arms are depleted during wars, and must be replenished.

    Does anyone else here understand the criminal hypocrisy at play here by the US, UK, and France?

    They consistently compound their lying towards war, by blaming others for the very crimes they commit against militarily weaker countries.

    Does anyone remember Viet Nam? The chemical used by the US then was Agent Orange!

    Remember Iraq & what the US did in Fallujah? The chemical used then was “white phosphorous” – it’s effects are still being seen in newborn babies.

    Even at Raqqa in Syria, the US used white phosphorous on native Syrians.
