So says Wilbur Ross. He went on to say that "it didn't cost the President anything to have that entertainment". www.usatoday.com/story/news/po…
It may not have cost the President himself anything, but the same can't be said for the United States as a whole. The Tomahawk missiles cost almost $80 million. The strike also further soured relations with Russia and the Assad regime, making the effort to fight ISIS even more difficult. And on the opposite side, people died.
I hope I'm not the only one a little disturbed by the administration's flippant attitude toward employing military force. This is hardly the first example (Trump himself did it plenty of times during the campaign), but right now we're edging ever closer to nuclear war with North Korea. We are gambling with the lives of millions of Japanese, North Koreans, South Koreans, and thousands of American personnel. If the Syrian strike was after dinner entertainment, what would be the President getting mad (as Trump suggested would happen if North Korea persisted in testing nuclear weapons)?
Anyone else have thoughts on this?
