Now the Donald has proved that he is just as stupid as people thought. Remember the phrase “mission accomplished” that isprobably the most foolish thing George Bush ever said. Bush gave a speech in 2003 declaring the end of major U.S. combat missions in Iraq, with a banner featuring the phrase “Mission Accomplished.”
It was a speech that even Bush admitted he regretted.
Today the United States has responded to the Syrian use of chemical weapons against its own people. Warplanes and ships from the United States, Britain and France launched more than 100 missiles at three chemical weapons storage and research facilities near Damascus and Homs.
“A perfectly executed strike last night,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter. “Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”S Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters Friday that the missiles were a “one-time shot” for now, and that the strike sent a “strong message” to “deter” Assad from carrying out another chemical attack. Mattis didn’t say that the conflict with Syria was over.
