President Donald Trump has stepped up to define the crossing of the red-line that his predecessor Barack Obama shrank from when confronted with the use of chemical weapons. The United States launched Tomahawk Cruise Missiles at military targets in the wake of a brutal attack using chemical weapons that left dozens dead, including children.

Barack Obama warned Bashar Al-Assad about the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war but when it occurred Obama failed to do anything about Syria “crossing a red line” and was heavily criticized for failing to end the slaughter of civilians.

Tonight America is no longer on the sidelines and launched at least 50 Tomahawk missiles at what we are being told are strategic targets inside Syria. The primary target was the base where the Sarin gas used in the attack on the civilians was stored.
