Trump’s Middle East Interventions By: Nicholas Warner

Background On August 7, 1998, Al Qaeda suicide bombers struck U.S. embassies in East Africa. Two weeks later President Bill Clinton launched Operation Infinite Reach, a volley of cruise missiles at a supposed Al Qaeda meeting in Afghanistan, and a factory in Sudan. Since then we have striked Kosovo, Waziristan, and Libya. Firing off missiles in the modern era seems to have become a rite of passage for presidents.

Trump’s Cruise Missile Strike On April 4th, President Trump learned that President Assad of Syria had killed or sickened hundreds of people in a chemical attack (using banned sarin) on a rebel occupied town. Trump then launched 59 tomahawk missiles against an air base in Syria. Trump said the strike is aimed at ending “the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria”.
