"And Here..... We.... GO!" to quote the Joker.

Seriously, pray for any servicemen involved not just from the US but from France and Britain as well. I'm not sure why Trump was announcing this in real time unless all the munitions were on their way and human-piloted aircraft were already safely egressing from the danger zone at this point.

According to Fox, this wasn't just a cruise missile (Tomahawk) or UAV attack, but human piloted B1 Bombers and other assets were used. B1s carry an enormous amount of ordinance so this is a substantial strike. If not, they would have used F22s or F35s.

In other words, this isn't a measured tit-for-tat response. This is VERY significant.

Didn't Putin say they would shoot down incoming missiles? I'm guessing he wasn't expecting B1s.
Tomorrow daylight will be a big day.

B1s will take out many hard targets, clearing the way for other fighter jets to attack, if needed.
