The Trump administration says Syria is already looking “much much better” after a dramatic intervention triggered by a horrific gas attack on civilians, which the US says was carried out by the President Bashar al-Assad.
“It’s looking great” says Trump press secretary Sean Spicer.
“The USA has already brought peace to millions of people in Syria. You wouldn’t even recongise the place. Seriously”
American Vice President, Mike Pence says the place looks like ‘any other Mediterranean paradise’ after America took it upon themselves to bomb some sense into the four to five different military forces attempting to take control of the place.
“No doubt the 13.5 million Syrians requiring humanitarian assistance, of which more than 6 million are internally displaced within Syria, and over 4.8 million are refugees outside of Syria, will just be begging to come back” he said.
The bombings have made great use of $110 million worth of military explosives that have been sitting unused but fully budgeted for, since before Donald J. Trump was elected.
However, many say these kinds of bombing strikes are reckless, especially considering the Syrian government has denied being the source of the initial chemical attack, but leaders around the world have placed the blame with them anyway.
Australian Prime Minister Turnbull further condemned the Syrian chemical weapons attack on civilians saying it was “a blatant contravention of basic principles of humanity”.
“These crimes against humanity, shocking and horrific even in the context of the Syrian conflict zone, cannot be committed with impunity,” he said.
“The perpetrators must be held to account. We have called on the Security Council to address this matter as soon as possible – in the meanwhile, Trump will continue peppering their countryside with extremely powerful explosives until all is fixed”
The US government has declared the attack damaged aircraft, equipment and support infrastructure at the airfield and would limit the government’s future ability to deploy chemical weapons.
US President Donald Trump said the airfield had been the launching pad for the chemical attack and hopefully if they can bomb Syria enough to fix it, Americans won’t have to worry about taking in refugees from that country.
