The US strike on a Syrian airfield with 59 cruise missiles is an act of unparalleled stupidity. The strike was in retaliation for a Sarin Gas attack on Syrian civilians allegedly by Assad’s military. Naturally there is ‘incontrovertible’ proof that the Syrian army is responsible.
Personally I doubt that either Assad or the Russians are stupid enough to use poison gas and as Sarin isn’t difficult to manufacture there is a better than even chance that a rebel faction had something to do with it in order to elicit exactly this kind of response from the dumb Yanks.
Naturally the UK is tagging along behind the US wagging its tail like some pathetic lap dog.
