SPUTNIK NEWS – June 13, 2018: The article highlights that President Trump has hinted that the 2017 US missile strike on Syria was a message to China. (BattleForWorld: I wonder if Trump is aware of the gold that the United States borrowed [some say stole] from China? And the results for all to see regarding the United States unleashing brute world domination action around the world fulfilling geopolitical aspirations, some consider this a good thing for the US to dictate to the world using military might. Hmm, maybe military might and abusive/deceptive capitalism are inseparable lovers?)
US cruise missile strikes on Syria in April 2017 followed reports of the alleged use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces.
The 58 Tomahawk cruise missiles the US launched at a Syrian airbase were meant to show how Washington would respond to the use of chemical and other weapons of mass destruction by anyone, President Donald Trump told Fox News on Tuesday.
Donald Trump recalled that the cruise missile attack came as he was meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
I told him, ‘Mr. President, we just sent 58 missiles into Syria to hit a certain target and he said ‘please say it again’ with his interpreter. I said ‘we just sent 58 missiles… Every single one of those missiles from 700 miles away from ships in the ocean. 58 missiles – 58 hits,’” Trump said.
Trump further added that his administration is against the use of such lethal and dangerous weapons.
