DAMASCUS, SYRIA – America, Great Britain and France participated jointly in airstrikes against the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad successfully targeting Syria’s chemical weapons program including its research, development and storage facilities. This was in revenge for President Assad’s chemical weapons attack on his own people in the Syrian city of Douma last week. During that gas attack on Saturday, April 7, 2018, dozens of civilian men, women and children were gassed to death and over 500 were left poisoned. This was done in violation of international law and UN Security Council resolutions.
US President Donald J. Trump was completely horrified by the images of dead and gasping children. He declared President Assad to be “Animal Assad” and promised strong action very soon. French President Emmanuel Macron said of the gas attack that a “red line” had been crossed by the Assad regime.
Over 100 missiles were launched against three sites in Syria that were responsible for the production and distribution of chemical weapons. All three were destroyed. The attack by the three NATO allies was organized by President Trump who called the military operation a “perfectly executed strike”. General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated that there were no reports of American or Allied casualties during the operation. British Prime Minister Theresa May declared that the air strikes sent, “a clear message that the international community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons.”
