President Trump Sparks Social Media Backlash With 'Mission Accomplished' Tweet

The phrase immediately evoked former president George W. Bush's premature Iraq victory speech on board the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1, 2003.

"Even George W. Bush, who nearly never admitted mistakes, said using that term was a bad decision".

'It's about the last thing Trump should have said - take my word on this, ' Wallace said.

The U.S. Department of Defense released video footage of tomahawk missiles being launched from a submarine in the Mediterranean Sea at targets in Syria as part of a "multi-national strike operation against the Syrian government".

Instead, Seven shared footage shot earlier on Sunday night of the athletes in the stadium, including Fearnley. Again, we got that wrong", he tweeted. "But there are two words that are very applicable for these Games".

Two sites were targeted west of Homs and one site was targeted in Damascus. Under the War Powers Resolution, the president must keep Congress informed of such actions. In May 2003, everyone thought the mission had been accomplished. The words, which likely left many people in the US government, congress, intelligence services and military with their heads in their hands, is ambiguous in every aspect: what was the "mission", and what does it mean for it to be "accomplished"? Democrats and others denounced Trump's use of the "Mission Accomplished" phrase as odd, incautious and premature.

"This is not about regime change ..." Instead, a coordinated and prolonged campaign to militarily destroy ISIS has been the focus of the USA intervention, and Trump has vowed to withdraw the US from the conflict once this has been achieved; to the dismay of many of his military advisors. "Use often!" he said. Rather, a weak yet stable Assad would better help serve US interests.

Assad hosted a meeting with the politicians, and is reported by state media to have told his visitors that the US, Britain and France had waged a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Russian Federation and Syria.

"Air strikes disconnected from a broader strategy may be necessary, but they alone will not achieve US objectives in the Middle East", said McCain, who a year ago called for more aggressive action that would cripple Assad's military.

Cena was one of the best reasons to watch Total Bellas as well and nobody seemed to understand him like Nikki Bella . The couple had been together for six years and got engaged a year ago on live TV during a wrestling match.

If the US genuinely cared about the Syrian people over its regional power aspirations, then its anti-chemical weapons policy would have been consistent.

Trump said Friday that the USA is "prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents". Repeated indiscriminate use of other unconventional weapons in Syria vastly outweighs the destruction caused by chemical weapons, yet only now is action taken.

Several U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it was not a priority for the administration to push out Assad, who has survived with massive aid from Iran and Russian Federation. The answer is only "may be".

Commentators questioned the message behind the latest strike - which signaled that Western allies would not let a chemical weapons attack go without punishment - but demurred about deeper involvement when barrel bombs by the Assad government kill far greater numbers of Syrians. Using the alleged chemical attack to legitimise the use of force amongst its allies, Assad has faced retribution for his indiscriminate attacks on civilians. Longer-term, she said, Trump had three ultimate objectives in Syria: to defeat the Islamic State group, to contain Iranian aggression and to halt the use of "mass chemical weapons".

The former is four goal behind the latter and Kane himself has four to go to catch up with Liverpool's Salah. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were also on target as Liverpool moved three points above Tottenham .

Haley said the joint military strike "put a heavy blow into their chemical weapons program, setting them back years" and reiterated that if Assad uses poison gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded".
