#SyriaStrikes: President Trump Ordered Syria Missile Strike, Tweets "Mission Accomplished"

Donald Trump echoes George W. Bush with Syria strike 'Mission Accomplished'

'Mission Accomplished' in Syria, Trump declares on Twitter

President Donald Trump declared "Mission Accomplished!" hours after joint strikes on Syria by the U.S. and key allies, inviting immediate comparisons to President George W. Bush's early, misplaced optimism about the USA invasion of Iraq in 2003.

According to the Pentagon, the strikes took out three chemical weapons sites considered to be central to the production of chemical weapons and the Trump administration has threatened further military action if chemical attacks on civilians persist. "There won't be anything, or anyone, even close!" tweeted the US President. The Russian military also confirmed the Syrian air defenses' shooting down of the Western missiles.

The words "Mission Accomplished" were famously displayed on a banner behind President Bush in an address from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln in May 2003, in which he prematurely declared the end to major combat operations in 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 US forces for years. In retrospect, however, various critics say that the speech was premature since the Iraq conflict led to a larger campaign in the Middle East, which was longer, more costly, and more deadly than the administration expected.

Congressman Vern Buchanan said that the strike against Syria by the US, British and French forces was a measured response to Assad's use of internationally banned chemical weapons.
