President Donald Trump authorized a Tomahawk missile strike on a Syrian airbase on Thursday night in order to retaliate against the Syrian president and his use of chemical weapons against his own people.
Not long after the missile launches, the Pentagon supplied real footage of the missiles lighting up the skies on their way to Syria.

It is refreshing to finally have a president that has the courage to stand up strong against violent dictators and terrorists. We suffered under former President Barack Obama for far too long and we paid the price in international politics.
In one quick move, Trump showed why the American military is the strongest in the world and asserted our dominance in international politics once again. Now, radical governments in the Middle East will think twice before engaging in actions that are condemned by the United States out of fear of being on the receiving end of a Tomahawk missile strike.
