What went into the planning of the military strike on Syria?


LIZ: FORCES IN SYRIA WERE NEARLY 2,000 TROOPS. JOINING ME NOW WITH A LOOK AT MILITARY PERSPECTIVE HERITAGE FOUNDATION VISITING FELLOW AND FORMER ARMY SPECIAL FORCES OFFICER STEVE BUCHI. I REALLY APPRECIATE IT. I WANTED TO GET YOUR PERSPECTIVE BECAUSE I’M CURIOUS AS TO, YES, WE HEARD THE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE PRESIDENT SECONDS LATER AND DURING SPEECH WE WERE GETTING BOMBINGS.>>THE PRESIDENT GIVES INITIAL INTENT TO DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FOLKS AND START LOOKING AT OPTIONS, THEY’LL COME BACK TO THE PRESIDENT IN THE MIDST OF THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO EITHER GET MORE GUIDANCE, SORT OF OFFER HIM SOMETHING HE MAY NOT HAVE ASKED FOR INITIALLY, SOUNDS LIKE A LONG TIME FOR THIS KIND OF PRECISION WAS PRETTY — LIZ: THE EFFORT –>>THAT COMPLICATED FURTHER, IT’S SIMPLE WHEN –>>QATAR TO AIRBASE. THAT SORT OF THINGS. LIZ: I’M CURIOUS AS TO TROOPS ON THE GROUND. MORE THAN A WEEK AGO, WE HAD HEARD THAT THEY WERE GOING TO BE DRAWING BACK OUT OF SYRIA, WE HEARD THAT FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP. WHAT NOW? WHAT ARE THEY THINKING? HAS THEIR MISSION CHANGED?>>AT THIS POINT IT HASN’T. THIS WAS AS SECRETARY MATTIS DESCRIBED A ONE-TIME SHOT TO TRY AND DETER AND DEGRADE ASSAD FROM USING CHEMICAL WEAPONS. IT’S NOT SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN WHAT THOSE FOLKS WERE DOING?>>DO YOU THINK IT’S A ONE-OFF?>>A ONE-OFF RIGHT NOW. THIS IS A CONTINUING EFFORT BUT IT’S NOT A DAY-TO-DAY AIR CAMPAIGN YET, SO THOSE FOLKS ON THE GROUND WILL CONTINUE MISSIONS THAT THEY ARE DOING, FIGHTING ISIS, WORKING WITH OUR FRIENDS AND GOING AFTER ENEMIES AND A LOT OF THEM ARE VERY, VERY WELL INFORMED ABOUT THIS STUFF, OUR COMMANDERS KEEP THOSE YOUNG FOLKS INFORMED AND SOME OF THEM ARE NOT THAT YOUNG, SOME ARE VERY EXPERIENCE, SPECIAL FORCES GUY THAT IS HAVE A LOT OF MILES ON THEM, THEY GET THE POLITICS. LIZ: WHAT DOES THAT DO FOR YOUR MIND SET AND YOU’RE TRAINED AND IT’S HARD FOR ME TO FATHOM WHEN YOU HAVE TO GO FROM THINKING THAT PERHAPS THERE’S GOING TO BE WITHDRAWAL TO THERE COULD BE ESCALATION, WE JUST DON’T KNOW.>>I HAVE MADE 20 DEPLOYMENTS IN MY CAREER IN ACTIVE DUTY, I CAME BACK ON TIME ON SCHEDULE ONCE OUT OF THOSE 20. THOSE CHANGES HAPPEN ALL OF THE TIME. OUR FOLKS ARE USED TO THEM. WE HAVE A PROFESSIONAL MILITARY, THEY’RE NOT A BUNCH OF DRAFTEES, THEY GET THIS AND WHILE THEY’D BE HAPPY TO COME HOME IF THE PRESIDENT SAID COME HOME, THEY UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE DOING AND WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THING.

Dani uses chemical weapons and makes them stay ??? I'm sure that really happened ???? Probably by ISIS but not the Syrian regime ?? And where's the proof everyone's asking for ?? All of it's b***** !! God help us!!!

  23. by acting against my wishes,
    you associated me with a policy,
    that i am now compelled to defend,
    whatever my inclinations.

  29. professional military with the only modern experience of fighting Afghan cavemen.

  35. Woo, WW3 here we come

  36. What went into the planning on the military strike on Syria?

    First you / the u.s planted and funded a group called isis.

    Second you staged a fake chemicak atack.

    Third you went from backing up Syria againts isis to now making Syria the enemy.

    And fourth you will destroy its government as the result of syria now using the dollar thus joing the central bank owned by the reptilian Rothschilds.

  37. is anyone going to die in tennessee?!??

  38. Russia wasn’t done yet.

  39. Syria must be punished

  40. I hope Russia bombs the U.S Military see how they like it. If you get butt hurt over this comment well…um oh well shouldn't be bombing innocent people who suffer on a daily

    A Vet againt war.

  45. Comrade from mother Russia here. God bless America! We all support Trump here.

  46. Is it the end of earth?

  47. Buckle up trumpets… Time to strap on your boots and backpeddle your way outta this..mmmm you support a person who bans Syrian children, only to bomb Syria for gassing Syrian children… let the idoit parade begin.

  48. Were about to start another ww

  49. I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS WORLD AND I ALWAYS WANTED TO MEET ODELL BECHAM JR. BUT IF I DIE I WANT EVERYONE TO MAKE ME FAMOUS

  50. Syria gets attack with a chemical weapon and then US shoots it’s middle to Syria to help stop terrorism 😂😂😂 this is a fucking joke. So many innocent people died for no reason and Trump is a puppet idc what anyone says

  51. Syria attacked the white house…

    It has been there for decades

    WE HAVE TO GO TO WAR WORLD 3

  52. What went into the planning..well, schlomo at the mossad said…"we need to get the US to take out Syria for us…perhaps another gas attack hoax?" Kikey Hymie Kikestein then said.."well, we will call our friends at Isis and tell them to do it"..that was pretty much it!

  53. Sad to say but someone needs to kick the shit out of us badly with numerous attacks and just maybe the rest of the citizens of this country would understand what we make other countries and its citizens go through; death, fear, dispair, hopelessness. Another 100 911's?…. Is that what its going to take to make our society wake the fuck up and realize the concept of 'humanity'? Mr president you need to dump your armani suit and put on some military boots for a change you dumb fuck.
    Sincerely a pissed off Vet.

  54. War is money the powers that be

  55. Lol all these idiots crying about USA being in wars. If democrats didn't destabilize Middle East yes Bush messed up Iraq and Afghanistan but it was only those two countries.While democrats screw up all of the Middle East starting with the Arab Spring and help create isis and fund/arm terrorists through arm dealers. USA just need to let those muslims kill each other.

  56. The President Trump is only going to make the U.S.A to get destroyed and just because he said just fire the god damn missiles to Syria is only going to make trouble

  63. Obama and democrats help isis grow yet no one say anything? In one year Republicans have destroyed a lot of isis. Yet Republicans are the racist anti American anti innocent ? Stupid democrats love their la la land lies about Republicans.

  64. Don’t let this distract you from the fact that if you or a loved one suffer from mesothelioma you may be entitled to compensation

  65. Mr President i aint gonna lie to ya…i did an charity auction for rights to phrase state statement and even short arguments. .made some bucks for the wall..anyway your gonna here rough things dont let it hurt you so what you know…oh oh ! P.s. their right to phrase state statement short arguments can only be done and said by for most experts….it was the slimeball word sir that started the online bidding had to be n.s. approved and they had to sponsored….anyway throw the proceeds in with the rest..good job sir.

  68. "Nothing. We see fly on wall, we shoot. Things are simple here in America."

  70. The Skripal poison was BZ a uk or usa nerve agent not Russian.

  71. WHY ARE SYRIANS PARTYING IN THE STREETS THE DAY AFTER THE SO CALLED BOMBING? !

  72. Don’t let this distract you from the death of tilted towers being hit by a meteor 😩

  73. Africans are the racial majority in the U.S. now because they irresponsibly breed like animals and we give them free food and free houses, which is why there are more African children available for adoption in the U.S. than any other race. The U.S. is basically Nigeria now, so China is much more powerful because they keep Africans out. The only way to save the U.S. is by requiring welfare recipients to be on birth control. Also, don't say that more white people are on welfare, because white people generate 90% of the revenue that funds the welfare system, not Africans. Do they have welfare In Nigeria???? FUCK NO.

  74. God why I don't want ww3

  75. Ебанный американский конгресс,идиоты!!

  82. The strike is just a show distraction no real solution behind. Putin 1 – Trump 0

  83. Russian Ministry of Defense:

    – 103 missiles + guided air bombs and air-to-surface missiles were used;
    – 71 missiles intercepted;

    – Shayrat airfield – 12 missiles, all shot down;
    – unused Mezze airfield – 5 missiles were shot down;
    – Homs airfield – 13 of 13 missiles were destroyed, no serious damage;
    – objects in the Barz and Jaramani area – 30 missiles, 7 shot down;
    – none of missiles in the zone of Russian air defense was included, Russian air defense was not used.
