    Where did you hear that? I'v e heard they've identified a bunch of targets in Syria but not that they've hit them yet.

    Never mind. I was about 30 minutes behind on Fox news. Evidently they announced it around 9:25. Sounds like 20-25+ targets. War planes from at least 4 Arab countries are involved. Cruise missiles from Arleigh Burke destroyer in Red Sea and aircraft for carrier in Gulf.

    Using Tomahawks, the missile program that Obama tried to eliminate in 2015. How ironic.

    Won't matter.

    Two Russian tank generals met in Paris, and one asked the other, "So who won the air war?"

    It has been said since long before 2001: these vermin must be pulled out by the root and incinerated. Unfortunately, the West no longer has the stomach for that kind of work.

    Lob a few missiles and call it a day. You tried. Doesn't matter if it worked or not.

    We will be fighting these people in our own streets soon. They are already here...
