I am not sure how I feel about it, but I don't think rash is the right word. There was a large contingent that wanted to have military presence in Syria for years. Obama actually tried to do something, but was shot down by Congress two or three years ago. And as far as the action itself, it definitely seems that's where the chemical weapons originated from. So regardless of who is in control I think that was a safe and controlled response. No other facilities were threatened or attacked.

The only real retaliation I think we'll see is the rumored Russian owned video of Trump peeing on a bed with hookers.

Perhaps it's down to me being European.  We're used to everything being discussed at length before anything happens.  72 hours is inconceivable to me.  Heck, I'd probably still call 72 days 'rash'.  Nyaa

I chalk it up to Europeans having access to better chocolate. Countries that have really good chocolate always seem to take things more in stride and can act more calmly and rationally. We have Hershey bars. North Korea doesn't have any. That kind of explains things in my book.

That said I really don't like that he did this without Congressional approval. Regardless of how disgusting the chemical attacks are in Syria, there's a reason we have a chain of command.  

I take a little comfort in knowing our military and intelligence communities have probably the best leadership they've had in a couple decades. I think they know we've got a nutjob in the White House that they need to keep in check.

Hershey bars are the reason we have fat cunts walking around like zombies.

Why be squeamish about chemical weapons? The acceptable ways of killing people in a war are rarely more humane than the unacceptable ones. Starved to death, trapped in rubble, going through surgeries in an unsanitary hospital after being shot or hit by shrapnel, can be worse than dying in a chemical attack, or living with its injuries.
