  1. You should be shamed.. Your governments use the chemical lie to excuse this strick.. You are killing us.. I am from syria

  2. There is no clear cut policy. The US will remain in Syria. This strike is based on allegations and not evidence, thus furtger decreasing USA's credibility. The example of FAKE NEWS for war with Iraq is enough to suffice the case. Second, it's a gamble which President Trump took to divert attention from the going investigation.

  3. Why does President Donald Trump want to retaliate against Syria(even though Syria never attacked the US)? Possibly because he wants the CIA and FBI in some sort of distraction-mode before an awful decision.

  4. Interesting how with all the humanitarian atrocities around the world, it's always the countries producing oil that the US/UK/France get involved in and attack before waiting for sufficient evidence... #Syria

  5. This war in Syria is an inside job designed to wreck the U.S economy. Syria is the least of their concern. & China all excited about it. Trump is a con artist & a liar & a business man looking out for his interest only.

  6. US policy in Syria is to show off the military. trump and his supporters and FOX News love military displays.

  7. As an American, I'm not proud of the things we used to condone. What's happening in the middle east falls in the same category. The turmoil that we've been dealing with our president; I can't help it feel that this attack is more of a convenient opportunistic action on his part.. What he did today was no better. 100%percent innocent people died at the hands of Trump. He's just like them

  8. So let me ask.......how many of you who support this ineffective strike in Syria are also willing to take the refugees that will be fleeing that country in even larger numbers? Your empty concern for gassed civilians comes up noticeably short, you hypocrites!

  9. Can we just give syrian people a brake, why shud the big guy bullies the weaker one, they also human beings for god sake. Is the word peace already wipe off from dictionary.

  10. Does anyone really know who’s who in Syria? This has been going on since 2011 and I’m still trying to figure out what’s what over there.

  11. The world will be more peaceful if we only can eliminate both the TRUMP and PUTIN.They think they are the coach, the world is a playground and Syria is a valuable player to sponsor.

  12. Poor Syria! How long will can it still bear these bombings from virtually all major powers for different reasons?

  13. I'm a bit disappointed by the coverage of the media. CNN showed us fireworks in Iraq. The military showed images from the rockets camera's. And now? Nothing. CNN is getting lazy as hell. Go to work CNN employees. You don't get paid for just sitting behind your screen!!

  14. The communists snuck in, like we were afraid, and slowly took over the Democratic party, education, media, and Hollywood through subversion.
    The modern Democrat is a communist, they just don't realize it.

  15. We know what is the US policy is in Syria. Bring down the government and to control Syria its political indipendence sovereignty people and reasorces. In short tun it in to a poppet state !

  16. The USA is confused with Russia's presence in Syria. I think is time for the USA to accept defeat and live Syria in peace without causing further confrontation with Russia which will bring more sorrow to the region

  17. Chemicals are all over the skies above Syria and Damascus, who will bear responsibility for this bombing chemicals attack?!!

  18. I only could pray for syria's people safe.
    And i think USA aim probably the military facility itself, because without military the syrian couldn't keep the nation order and it could allow the other to invade syria.

  19. Without being informed about that conflict at all, that image alone is just sad. Too bad we can't just live in peace and harmony on this giant rock.

  20. Dawmm cnn dont fuze the people the use of chemical weapons in this countries 3rd war no Start is finishem.
    The think of sleepie loco.

  21. Typical. If he didn't bomb, he is making a u turn on what he said. He bombs and there is uproar.
    Tomorrow we might be hit by chemical weapons, then?
    It is internationally agreed, no use of these weapons.

  22. Surely, the US policy in Syria is to protect the commercial interests of Genie Oil & Gas? And the lapdog, banker-run governments of the UK and France are in its pocket.

  23. Was it the right thing to do? I think so!
    But Trump and the UK need to consider their close ties to the Saudis who are bombing women and children in Yemen.

  24. Is it permissible to kill children and women with aircraft, rockets, vosovers, cluster bombs, and house demolitions on civilians, and they are not allowed to kill them with chemical weapons?

  25. Dont let this distract you from the the fact that in 1972, a commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... The A-Team.

  26. When the term terrorism doesn't apply to america, still doesn't justify the same if not more extreme actions. It's been the american way since its inception...

  27. If trump or any of his republiscum cronies cared about this country , they would do the one thing , they've never done....tell the truth to us.

  28. No plan at all .....just sabre rattling. And stoking the fire for more wars .... its seems to be good business for the military industrial complex...🤨

  29. Make sure that the rulers of the world a group of mercenaries and street boys your policies do not live up to the value of the Syrian child shoes curse God you displaced the people of Wo

  30. And for you, CNN you go around selling wrong information, you are partakers in this, yes all you news anchors are MURDERERS, remember that when having your dinner today, that you earned it at the cost of Syrian, Libyan and Iraqi lives.

  31. Mike Flynn hasn't been listening to fake news. Even as Prime Minister May addressed, it's to prevent the use of chemical weapons from becoming normalized.

  32. Especially the U.K. should not speak 'in name of the international community' !! They have not consulted the international community!
    They act only to please Trump.

  33. Most of these were shot down anyways. This appears to be just a show with Trump and Putin getting a couple of Oscars.

  34. Funny... you would think the country that proclaims to be superior to the world was tricked by it's own media lol

    What a joke

  35. Russia need to bomb America because it possesses chemical weapons and has a dictator for the precedent.

  36. Just to show off this U.S. and their buttfuckers they don't care about people what did they change now after this strike

  37. The US policy in trumps administration is basically to bomb Syria since Syria bombed Syria so as To ensure Syria doesn't bomb Syria and let the world know that the US bombed Syria. Ain't it weird ???

  38. This strike is too late, it came after thousands of lives being lost, but at least, will save some.

  39. The U.S. Goal is what it has always been destabilize the country and if at all possible take any and all natural resources then plant a U.S. Base there "for security". That is why we have 600 bases outside our borders. Which is crazy unless your goal is to actually create an ever expanding defensive Empire much like Rome. We seen how that ended. Time is ticking for the Empire.

  40. The US is introspecting it’s military & Nuclear power in the region. But this trend is too much worse.

  41. Light them up, police of the world, own citizens survive on food stamps, each mass shooting recycle that prayer and send thought... If you didn't bomb other countries so much, maybe prayer might have some effect... lol

  42. Anybody remember when Trump said his administration was running like a fine tuned machine? Guess what, he's out of oil. Time to lubricate it. Call stormy. Heard she's ready. #FUCKTRUMP

  43. Too bad Trump has purged the State Department. And has been slow in filling vacancies. Mostly because no decent people want to work for him.

  44. the only evidence of a chemical attack is social media reports and reports by US funded sources.. this shouldn't be enough to wage war.

  45. Can somebody call Teresa May and tell her , that her speech on your tv right now is a humilation against every human with IQ above 50. Thank you.

  47. Joint action of three countries may escalate more refugee flux to Europe. EU should send all coming refugees to France and UK

  48. You were wrong to get the cradle of civilizations .. Syria ..

  49. The US policy in Syria is making the weapon merchants are profitable

  50. What is US policy in Syria?
    Missile strikes.
    Go golfing
    "We'll see what happens."
    Thank you everybody, thank you."

  51. Russia is cornered. What will they do?? Arrange the football WC 2018 or fight against US allies. If Turkey, China, Iraq joins with Russia, then situation can change overnight.

  52. "what exactly is US policy in Syria?"

    Well, that's an easy one. US and fellow rogue states want to prevent oil and gas being provided to the european market under the control of Syria, Russia and Iran, who originally chose to work together on that project and rejected the west.

    US financed and armed moderate terrorists to overthrow the elected president and replace him with a vasal, who then does the west's biddings, like they did in the past with numerous other countries.

    Contrary to back then, when Soviet Union was crumbling to pieces and couldn't protect their client regimes, Russia this time intervened. Succesfully. Now US and fellow rogue states behave like cornered rats, orchestrate false flags and try to turn the result of that proxy war in their favor. If they decide to go all in, who knows what happens.

  53. CNN your foolishness is beyond repairs.

  54. Syria has used CW before! In fact, Russia agreed to remove them! Obviously not! CW use is not new in its Civil War!

  55. It’s good that 6 years later you are asking what the policy on Syria is.

  56. can anyone till me what the f**** happened in Syria !!
    this isn't a good decision for a fool 3 leader
