Pentagon says all targets successfully hit in Syria

The US and its allies, UK and France, “successfully hit every target” in their early Saturday airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites, said Joint Staff Director Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie and Pentagon spokesperson Dana White Saturday at a briefing. In total, the US used 105 weapons against three targets, “taking every precaution to strike only what we targeted,” White said. Two sites near Damascus and one outside Homs were destroyed. There were no civilian casualties. The US believes that Syrian president Bashar’s ability to carry out a chemical attack has been “significantly crippled.”
Gen. McKenzie said that contact was maintained with the Russians through coordination mechanisms, but they were not given details of the operation. Asked by a reporter why the Pentagon was not presenting evidence of Syria’s use of chemical weapons, White replied that this was intelligence data.

The UN Security Council is meeting Saturday afternoon in reaction to the airstrikes, at Russia’s request.

    What about a Museum of the Horrors of Atheism right next to each one also; you know:
    Mao Zedong (45,000, 000 deaths in 4 years)
    Joseph Stalin (10 to 50,000,000 deaths)
    Pol Pot (2 to 8,000,000 deaths)
    Fidel Castro (100,000)

      I bet you are a man! Mao, Stalin, all those were men and communists. Communism was a religion just like Islam, with rules similar to sharia. Please think no more with your balls, better use brain, if you have one.

      Men are stupid, they make war.

      Ruskies are just claiming the numbers to show potential shoppers their air defenses are worth buying. Bullsh*t claims by Ruskies. Tomahawks can fly below radar detection levels.

    Note that they didn’t say “all the missiles hit their targets” (Russia claims most missiles were shot down)
