Trump defends the use of 'Mission Accomplished' for attack on Syria

Bush addresses the nation aboard the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln

It was a phrase that haunted George W. Bush for the last six years of his presidency, and became a shorthand for a premature declaration of victory.

"I knew they would take advantage of this", but I perceived that it is a military term so extraordinary that it had to be said.

"The "Mission Accomplished" sign, of course, was put up by the members of the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln, saying that their mission was accomplished", Bush said at a press conference.

Assad government has been suspected for a poison gas attack against civilians, the airstrike was said to deter the possible future use of such banned weapons, News Agency AP quoted in its report.

President Donald Trump was extremely online Sunday morning.

Twitter kindly stepped up to remind the current president where his administration has gone wrong and what a "mission accomplished" actually looks like.

President Trump's use of the familiar phrase struck a chord with the American people, many of whom opposed military action against Syria. And he acknowledged that the United States still had "difficult work to do in Iraq". "I can assure you we took every measure and precaution to strike only what we targeted and -- and we successfully hit every target", White told media. Does he support the ouster of Assad?

Russian Federation and Iran called the use of force by the United States and its French and British allies a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

Mattis said Thursday evening that the USA had not yet confirmed that the Douma attack - the most recent suspected Syrian chemical weapons attack, on April 7 - included the use of sarin gas. Defense Department chief spokeswoman Dana White reportedly told reporters at the Pentagon that the strike meant to hit chemical weapon facilities. And a halt to Syria's use of chemical weapons is no more assured today than it was a year ago.

"It's a tough contradiction for him to sort out", the official said. Weeks later, it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down US forces for years.

US President Donald Trump addresses the nation on the situation in Syria April 13, 2018 at the White House in Washington, DC. In fact, he said, "Our mission continues".

In light of the phrase's history and the current state of things, was Trump's use of "Mission Accomplished" appropriate?

Cedric Leighton, a retired Air Force Colonel who served at the National Security Agency and Pentagon, said the Trump administration's next move will depend on how Assad responds to the latest Tomahawk attack.
