Dicks at War

What did the Tomahawks accomplish?

DICKS at WAR! TRUMP bombs Mosul and ASSAD gas-attacks Khan Sheikhoun. Then TRUMP bombs ASSAD’s airstrip, but in 24 hours Syrian warplanes are taking off and bombing and landing again. Did Putin give the okay to Assad? Did Trump tip off Putin?

The 59 Tomahawk missiles cost $60 million — 40% of the 2016 budget for the National Endowment for the arts ($147,949,000) — blown up in a single night. The PRESS rallies around the PRESIDENT and the FLAG. The POLLS are UP! What did the Tomahawks accomplish? Who did they help? The 500,000 Syrians dead and 5,000,000 refugees? How long will TRUMP dangle this distraction before our eyes?
