Syria Missiles

Unfortunately, I've seen this movie before. And I see why our establishment does it. It's the safe thing to do. Ironically. No American lives at risk. No costly involvement. Get to look morally tough. Something everyone can get behind. A classic Bill Clinton-esque move. And to my mind, the most disappointing thing Trump has done thus far. He's supposed to be this maverick free-thinker. I thought we had no vital national security in Syria or the Middle East. We've done this world policeman act before. That said, I hope it works, although I don't exactly know what working looks like in Syria.
