Let's see... Shayrat airbase was hit with 59 cruise missiles.

Estimated cost per missile - 1.2 million for an estimate total cost of 70.8 million dollars for a few hours (?) of bombardment.

Amount of damage done to the Syrian airforce - practically none.


Amount the Corporation for Public Broadcast spent in 2014: 445.5 million dollars. This is for 24/7 365 days worth of programming of public television, radio and web features.

So for about 6% of a year's worth of PBS we get absolutely nada. And remember, this was just a few hours (?) of missile launches. Image what a full scale war would cost... in just equipment, let alone blood.

Tell me again how wonderful Trump is at running things?

Don't be fooled, this is just window dressing. A pretty fireworks display to distract us. Militarily this was a stupid and wasted move that effected nothing on the ground - especially if the Russians and possibly the Syrians themselves were warned.

Stay frosty.
