How Trump unleashed awesome arsenal on Assad: Tomahawk missiles launched from Navy destroyers 150 miles away with pinpoint accuracy without endangering US pilots or enraging neighboring allies
The US President last night fired 59 missiles at al-Shayrat military airfield near Homs overnight in retaliation for the Syrian leader's horrific chemical weapons attack on Idlib. They were launched from his state of the art warships USS Ross and USS Porter which can fire dozens of Tomahawks with pinpoint accuracy from up to 1,500 miles away from their targets. The destroyers' locations are always kept secret but are believed to have been off the coast of Turkey or Cyprus, around 150 to 200 miles away from al-Shayrat. The Tomahawk is the US military's most advanced missile carrying an 1,000lb bomb guided to the target by infrared camera. America has packed the Mediterranean with ships, submarines and aircraft with even more firepower in the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea that can quickly be moved into the Med via Suez.
