Cotton giddy over Syria strikes

Posted By on Sat, Apr 14, 2018 at 12:17 PM


Last night after the U.S. launched airstrikes against chemical weapons storage and research facilities near Damascus and Homs, Tom Cotton released a typically blustery and hawkish statement:

"The Butcher of Damascus learned two lessons tonight the hard way: weapons of mass destruction won't create a military advantage once the United States is done with you and Russia cannot protect its clients from the United States. President Trump ought to sustain the attacks if Assad doesn't learn these lessons, and Iran's ayatollahs and Kim Jong Un might want to learn the easy way. We thank our old British and French friends for once again joining us in defending the civilized world."
Here's what Sen. John Boozman said.

President Trump, ever the student of history, has already declared "Mission Accomplished!" on Twitter.
