“No child of God should ever suffer such horror”- Donald Trump gave reasons for attacking Syrian airfield
The United State President, Donald Trump has provided the reason why the United State had to attack the Syrian base.
In a statement given on Thursday night, April 6, 2017, following the US attack on the Syrian base in reprisal. Trump described the Syrian chemical attack in Idlib province which killed its own people which includes several men, women and children as an ‘affront to humanity’.
Trump said the photos of the dead Syrian people touched him seriously and transformed his thinking about the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad. He urged other nations to join him by saying, “all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types”.
Read his full statement after the cut.
“My fellow Americans, on Tues Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians. Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men women and children.
“It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack.
“No child of god should ever suffer such horror.
Tonight I ordered a targeted mil strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention, and ignored the urging of the UN security council.
“Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically.
“As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.
“Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.
“We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed. And we hope that as long as America stands for justice, that peace and harmony will in the end prevail.
“Goodnight and God bless America and the entire world.
