Syrian wakes up to find Part of Tomahawk Missile in his Yard
Friday, 07 April 2017

First, lets get the good news out of the way: Mission accomplished for Raytheon's stockholders, as their stock went up 3% today.

Now the bad news: Washington's decision to lob a few dozen missiles at a sovereign nation was a very serious escalation and showed what some might call a dangerous lack of common sense and basic human dignity. 

But assuming the objective of this strike was to murder as many sarin-stuffed Syrian warplanes as humanly possible, how effective was it?

This morning the Russian Defense Ministry described the combat efficiency of the US strike as “quite poor.”

That's a bit rude. But they might have a point.

Syrian warplanes were seen taking off from the Airbase this morning targeting US backed "moderate rebels".

According to RT:

“On April 7, 2017, between 3:42am and 3:56am Moscow time, two US Navy destroyers (USS Porter and USS Ross) fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Shayrat airfield in Homs Province, Syria, from an area near the Island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea.

According to our sources, only 23 of them reached the Syrian airbase,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said, adding that the points of impact of the other 36 cruise missiles remain unknown.

It appears we've found at least one of these missing freedom missiles. For everyone's sake, we hope this guy's turnips really learned their lesson, because that missile cost $1.59m, which according to Trump could have been used to rebuild America's crumbling infrastructure.
