Earlier this week, the world watched in horror as Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack against his own people. This attack claimed the lives of innocent men, women, and children who died an agonizing death. Of course, we all wanted to see justice for these people, and President Trump delivered just that last night.
In an amazing show of military might, Trump deployed 59 Tomahawk missiles to the Syrian base that launched the attack. The message was clear to Assad that Trump was not someone to mess around with.
After the successful military strike on Syria, Trump addressed the world from his Mar-a-Lago home. Trump made it clear that he did not want to be the “president of the world”, but what Assad had done crossed the line. Trump also made it clear that America was also one nation under God again too.
Here are excerpts of Trump’s announcement last night.
“On Tuesday, Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians. Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women, and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror.”
Trump told those gathered that the strike had targeted an airfield where the chemical attack was launched:
“Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated obligations under the chemical weapons convention and ignored the urging of the UN security council.”
President Trump concluded by saying, “Good night, and God Bless America, and the entire world, thank you.”
Here is the video.
Obama did not care about the atrocities that the Syrian people had been enduring for years. He allowed this tyrant to abuse and kill his own people for sport and never did anything to stop it. Now, Trump is in charge and has sent clear message that this will not be tolerated. Trump also showed the world that we are still a Christian nation that will protect innocent life.
I just hope that this will end now and not escalate any further.
What do you think about the military strike last night?
