VIDEO: Pentagon Briefing On Military Strikes In Syria

No additional attacks are planned at this time says US Defence Secretary James Mattis.

The U.S., Britain, and France have successfully completed military strikes against Syria’s chemical weapons capabilities, said the Pentagon in a briefing.

US Defence Secretary James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford briefed the media shortly after US President Donald Trump spoke about the strikes.

The first targeted site was the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center. “The second target was a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs, we assess that this was the primary location of Syrian sarin and precursor production equipment,” said Dunford.

Finally, a military command post/chemical weapons storage centre was struck.

Dunford said, “this wave of air strikes is over.”

Said Mattis, “Clearly, the Assad regime did not get the message last year. Together we have sent a clear message to Assad and his murderous lieutenants that they should not perpetrate another chemical weapons attack for which they will be held accountable.”

The briefing can be seen below:

Trump tweeted about the strikes on Saturday:

So far there has not been a reaction from Syria Iran or Russia at least not in the news. I am glad that Mr. Trump waited to have France and England do this with him. It was all such a sad horrible thing, gassing your own people again, but I wonder if us so called “unwashed masses” will ever know the truth about any of these terrible uprisings and wars.
Behind as usual, Trudeau says he agrees with our allies, really?

It’s a pretty sad day for Canada. Trudeau showed no support to the United States as an Allie, except for of course empty words. Trudeau is a gutless, spineless PM and I’m sure he would won’t the USA to support Canada in an attack. Good Job Trump, France, and England. Spencer, I wish there was more reporting on the spineless PM we have from other news sources. CNN is one of the most despicable news stations’s on the air and they never credit Trump for anything he does well. They will not stop until they destroy him.

My grandfather said we should not go to war. He was a Canadian WWII vet.
