Whelp...

I guess our president decided to celebrate the centennial of America's entry into The Great War with a YEUGE fireworks display


Actually, this raid was in response to the horrific gas attack earlier in the week. 

I should note that we have over 1000 troops on the ground in Syria, a country whose government has not given us permission to be there and which is an ally of Russia who also has thousands of troops on the ground helping to protect Syria (an important ally of their's) by shooting at the Jihadists we are ostensibly backing and that a number of those Russian troops are operating out of Syrian airforce bases where they crew AAA batteries and ground attack planes, which, for some reason brings to mind the fact that those 59 Tomahawks were aimed at a Syrian airbase.  Meanwhile while we are fighting the (mostly) different jihadis in ISIS which Russia is also fighting in addition to those guys our troops are assisting that Syria considers enemies of their state without any coordination with us. So, Russian and U.S. troops are on opposite sides of a civil war, armed and shooting at people who are trying to kill them in an area in which at least two factions are using poison gas and Iran and Hezbollah have large forces in the area.


"What could possibly go wrong?"


UPDATE: Thoughts from a professional perspective from Cdr. Salamander here. 
 

This should check a few boxes and hopefully this will be it for now.

We have enough fighting in this horrible part of the world right now. We don't need more.

Indeed.
