From what I understand, 29 out of 50 Missiles hit their targets, and the damage was limited. Lets see, these missiles cost around $1 Million Dollars a Pop...$50. Million Dollars, and the air strip is still intact, and I think 6 Fighters were not touched, and a bunch of, I kind of want to know, is this like a $50 Million Dollar Warning ?

There's no question that Assad is a slime, but wouldn't we be better off using our military might to make sure that humanitarian aid reaches the refugees? Oh, that's right - we bought all those ridiculously expensive missiles, so let's use 'em.

I read where planes from this site did another mission yesterday--didn't apparently have strategic military purpose/success. And this meant we can no longer expect diplomatic successes at the table on negotiated cease fires for humanitarian purposes, et al either. Poorly thought out effort. Thanks Dandelion.

It is the primitive mind that cannot conceive of anything beyond the base motivation of fear and threat of physical violence. There is this constant battle against the forces that want to drag this species back into the stone age.

How is it that after all these years of evolution we are still here? Club, bear skin and cave mentality. Instead of moving forward, progress, innovation, and evolution are constantly harassed, hampered, and thwarted, as if the challenges of everyday life are not enough. We have the curse of a feeble minded belief that time and effort are well spent and productive in dragging us back in evolution.

Absolutely agree with your comments, Marco.

Nothing sophisticated in the game of warfare, other than power-possessors have distanced themselves from the line of action, and the need to see the face of one's supposed enemy, thereby rendering people "on the other side" as simply pawns or chattel that can be eliminated without any thought, or regard for their existence.

Thanks Dandelion for sharing the link to the article by Ashley Cowburn. Mr.Corbynis right. The UN should investigate the gassing indecent. The US should not be taking unilateral actions.

It about time that the war mongers are taken to task and be required to actually do something which is productive to receive acknowledgement. The tear down, regressive attitudes don't fly. The hair brained, overly simplified, non productive schemes for short cuts and getting one over on others need to be cast aside.

Move ahead or not at all, but never, never backwards. Pea brains can't be at the front of the line and they sure as hell can't have say over my share of our resources.

Thanks dandelion. It´s very difficult to do anything construcvtive i Syria with so much interests. We should try to get talks with ALL parts- not bombs. "If you want peace, you must talk with your enemies too. (Willy Brandt about his talks with the GDR)

As has been written before, Donald Trump is now guilty of war crimes; but, so is Obama and Bush.

Have you read that the Arab countries were willing to pay the US to invade Syria? I watched the Jimmy Dore Show video which I've included here:
Did you also see that there is evidence that the Syrian gas attack was staged? I get news from Debbie the Sane Progressive and Jimmy Dore that I just wouldn't be able to see on any of the MSM networks. Now, YouTube is looking to de-monetize channels if they come across as progressive. Such a shame.
