Trump defends 'mission accomplished' after strike on Syria

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his use of the phrase "Mission Accomplished" to describe a U.S.-led missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program, even as his aides stressed continuing U.S. troop involvement and plans for new economic sanctions against Russia for enabling the regime of Bashar Assad.

As with all things Trump we need to lower our standards. When Bush used the phrase it was premature because our mission in Iraq was far from over.

Today that's no longer the case because Trump is referring to a single missile attack.

Trump's "Mission Accomplished" is basically an acknowledgement that we fired a bunch of cruise missiles at a few targets in Syria and all of them managed to hit their targets without any of the missiles being intercepted or going off course.

Nothing else was accomplished. Assad still has ample chemical weapons, we basically destroyed some buildings that can be rebuilt. and there's no assurances that Assad won't use chemical weapons again a year or two down the road if he feels it's necessary. None of the other actions described have been done and may or may not happen at some point in the future.

The only regional issue that we know is resolved is that Iran can't build a nuclear weapon as long as it's restricted by the Iran nuclear agreement that the IAEA has certified Iran is in compliance with and Trump's been threatening to destroy that agreement. Oh, and BTW, we can blame this one accomplishment where Iran can't build a nuclear weapon on Obama.

Well hopefully it'll be more effective than when we "beat the fuq" out of that airstrip and it was up and running again within a few days.

Shiva, the firing of missiles into Syria, hitting specific targets, and not getting ours shot down was the mission, and it was accomplished.

At least Trump's missiles hit their mark . . .

You shoot all manner of duds in gun threads here, they get shot down and you just abandon the discusion.

Well at the very least President Trump proved that HE won't let that 'red line' be crossed without repercussions.
