Kompromat distraction achieved.
Donald Trump is speaking to reporters at Mar-a-Lago.He says Assad used deadly nerve gas to kill many Syrians.Tonight he ordered a "targeted military strike" on the airfield from which that chemical weapons attack was launched.These strikes were, he said, in the "vital national security interest" of the US.
That was some religious bullshit in 45's address.

How long til Putin invades Ukraine?
I mean, I assume that's the deal.
Man it's got to be scary as fuck to be Latvian or Finnish right now
Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said: "Russian forces were notified in advance of the strike using the established deconfliction line. US military planners took precautions to minimise risk to Russian or Syrian personnel located at the airfield. We are assessing the results of the strike. Initial indications are that this strike has severely damaged or destroyed Syrian aircraft and support infrastructure and equipment at Shayrat airfield, reducing the Syrian government's ability to deliver chemical weapons. The use of chemical weapons against innocent people will not be tolerated."
That one deserves to go viral.
