The US has carried out a missile attack against an air base in Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town.
The Pentagon said 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired at 04:40 Syrian time (01:40 GMT) from destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean.
In a televised address, President Donald Trump said the base was the launch point for the chemical attack.
He called on “all civilised nations” to help end the conflict in Syria.
The business end of a Tomahawk cruise missile
Trump finally did something I agree with. This was a perfect strategic military strike on that brutal dictator Assad. The Russians still back this butcher because they have hardly any allies left in the world. The Russkies do not understand democracy, they never will, so they provide unfaltering allegiance to cutthroat dictators like Assad.
The fat psychotic child emperor in North Korea with the wacky hairdo is surely taking notice.
