BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The U.S., along with their allies France and the U.K., unleashed a barrage of cruise missiles into Syria, claiming the attack was in response to the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons in the town of Douma.

The three allies fired more than 100 cruise missiles towards several different sites across the country, making this the largest US coalition attack on the Syrian government.

Among the many targets for the U.S. coalition was the scientific research center that is located in the Barzeh suburb of Damascus.

The cruise missile strike completely destroyed this site, leaving most of the facility in ruins – please see below:

It doesn’t look like research center to me. More like some empty warehouses…

Somebody got a peace prize (Nobel) for dismantling exactly that chemical installation – under INTERNATIONAL supervision.
What to bomb here?

Besides, Trump said this bombing has just removed “Assad’s chemical weapons facility” – if this was true – all the next chemical attacks in Syria – by the very law of logic – must be attributed to the zionist’s puppets. Only theirs’ chemical plants were not destroyed in 2013.

That is shocking and ridiculous how zionists think people are fools to believe zionist propaganda!

Isn’t it dangerous to hang out at the hazardous and toxic facility that has polluted the environment after its destruction?
