U.S. Launches 59 Missiles at Syrian Government

(ANTIMEDIAThe U.S. military has launched 59 missiles into Syria, an official has confirmed to NBC. The target of the strikes was a Syrian government-controlled airfield in Homs, Syria.

According to a Statement from the Department of Defense:

“At the direction of the president, U.S. forces conducted a cruise missile strike against a Syrian Air Force airfield today at about 8:40 p.m. EDT (4:40 a.m., April 7, in Syria). The strike targeted Shayrat Airfield in Homs governorate, and was in response to the Syrian government’s chemical weapons attack April 4 in Khan Sheikhoun, which killed or injured hundreds of innocent Syrian people, including women and children.”

The U.S. military action is apparently in retaliation to a chemical weapon attack reported this week in Syria, which the U.S. blamed on the Syrian government, though no investigation has been conducted. As Anti-Media reported yesterday, U.S. Congressman Thomas Massie questioned the rush to blame Assad until further evidence is produced.

The U.S. itself was reported to have killed roughly 1,000 civilians in Iraq and Syria last month alone.

It’s unclear if Russia, which has forces on the ground in Syria, suffered any casualties from the strikes.

Libertarian leaning Senator Rand Paul remarked on Twitter that Trump needs Congressional authorization for these actions.

    article is misleading and inflammatory-an abandoned syrian air base was hit-not the syrian government-and Rand is right-where is the outrage about the Trumpster ordering this act of war without congressional approval–of course, if he had asked for approval from congress all the paedo’s and criminally insane war mongers would have voted to blow up the whole planet-because THEY ARE CRIMINALLY INSANE!

    It seems Trump takes orders from the same entity the ones before him did. Before we are shown a grain of proof about those chemical weapons, the US can`t wait to get started and risk an all-out war, which can easily turn fatal for the entire planet. Is this what the American people want? After all, their government is supposed to act on their behalf. And if they don`t, then what is their definition of democracy. But I already wondered about that for decades.
