Precision missile strikes targeted three Syrian chemical weapons facilities: a scientific research center near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a storage facility and command post near Homs. Unleashing 105 missiles, the U.S., British and French forces leveled at least one building and set back the country's chemical weapons program "for years," Pentagon officials said. Trump called it a "perfectly executed strike" in a tweet Saturday.

Yikes. Don't think it's going to escalate any further, but this seems counter-productive to the apparent withdrawal of troops within 6 months.

Hearing stuff that there wasn't a gas attack.

I wouldn't be surprised. US government always has a convenient scape goat to bomb some country.
