U.S. Fires 50+ Tomahawk Cruise Missiles At Syria

The U.S. just bombed Syria check out our Couch Talk about the Syria situation. It’s not as simple as many like to make it out to be.

The U.S. just fired 50+ Tomahawk cruise missiles at Syria. The missiles are reported to have struck a Syrian air field. But, of course that’s not the full story. We breakdown the whole Syria situation, talk some history and talk about the oil pipeline that’s proposed to run through Syria. We do know, in 2013 the U.S. and the west were quick to also blame chemical weapons on Assad, but conflicting reports suggested the rebels were actually responsible.

So who is responsible this time? Apparently it doesn’t matter, because the U.S. just bombed Syria anyways. It does seem strange to think that Assad would use chemical weapons on his own people when he knows how the world would respond AND given he seems to be winning the Syrian civil war.

This administration is jumping suspiciously quick to bomb the Syrian opposition even though there has not been an investigation.
