'Mission Accomplished' in Syria, Trump declares on Twitter

'Mission Accomplished' in Syria, Trump declares on Twitter | 14 April 2018 | Allied missiles struck at the heart of a[n alleged] Syrian chemical weapons arsenal in a show of force and resolve aimed at punishing the Assad government for a suspected poison gas attack against civilians and deterring the possible future use of such banned weapons. "A perfectly executed strike," President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday in the aftermath of his second decision in two years to fire missiles against Syria. "Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!" His choice of words recalled a similar claim associated with President [sic] George W. Bush following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Bush addressed sailors aboard a ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that tied down U.S. forces for years.
