adidas spezial airstrikes in Syria
Navy Veteran Robert Hill said, “I think it’s long overdue. Senator Thom Tillis (R NC), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said, “Assad is a war criminal who has targeted and murdered his own people, including innocent children. President Trump decisively responded to Assad’s latest atrocity to help prevent future ones, sending a clear message that when the Syrian regime crosses the red line, America will respond. We owe a debt of gratitude to the brave men and women in uniform who carried out today’s mission and continue to keep our nation safe and secure.”
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R NC) commented, “The United States has always been a global leader in fighting genocide. This week, Bashar al Assad once again committed genocide against the Syrian people with one of the most horrific weapons known to man. I am encouraged that the President decided to take action. The United States is once again asserting its leadership responsibility in eliminating genocide.”
The 24th MEU from Camp Lejeune is currently on a ship in the Mediterranean Sea near where strikes occurred. If the strikes escalate into war the 24th MEU vessel could become involved.
