"The attack was meant to send a message to Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president, that the United States intends to respond with military force if he continues to use chemical weapons, according to a military official.

The decision to launch an attack was a major reversal for Mr. Trump, who criticized former President Barack Obama in 2013 for considering strikes against Syria after a previous chemical attack"

M.N.: The first and the necessary step in the right direction: measured, balanced, fully justified and efficient, and also wise politically. And also a clear warning to North Korea and their sponsors.
The process of formation of Trump Presidency as the true National Security Administration has started and will continue. I think, it also demonstrates Mr. Trumps' personal trait: the capacity for the healthy adaptability and the survivor's instinct, which might save his Presidency. All Presidents learn and adapt in this job, and the better they do it, the more successful they are.

"I think it does demonstrate that President Trump is willing to act when governments and actors cross the line ... It is clear that President Trump made that statement to the world,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters...

Two U.S. warships – the USS Ross and the USS Porter – fired 59 cruise missiles from the eastern Mediterranean Sea at the targeted air base at around 8:40 p.m. ET (00:40 GMT), just as the two presidents were finishing their meals.

Throughout the three days of meetings, Trump's key military advisers were national security adviser H.R. McMaster, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, officials said.

In a White House marked by palace intrigue, McMaster has jostled for influence with Stephen Bannon, Trump's chief strategist, who lost his seat on the National Security Council on Wednesday just as the military preparations were developing."
