‘We have no choice’: Trump justifies US strikes, military buildup & posturing
The US has “no choice” but to continue boosting its military power, Donald Trump has said, after Washington’s war machine showcased its latest weapons over the past week and demonstrated its willingness to use them.
Trump authorized the unilateral cruise missile strikes on Syria and followed up by dropping the “Mother of all Bombs” on Afghanistan.
“Our military is building and is rapidly becoming stronger than ever before,” the US President tweeted Sunday. ”Frankly, we have no choice!”
Trump’s statement came after the Pentagon expanded its global reach and showcased its use force in recent weeks.
On April 7, in an unprecedented unilateral show of force, the US launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the Mediterranean Sea targeting the Syria's Shayrat Air Base. Trump ordered the strike in response to the chemical weapons attack in Khan Shaykhun on April 4, which Washington blamed on Damascus before any investigation into the incident has even been launched.
The strike on Syria which happened without the approval of the UN Security Council has been widely deemed as an act of aggression, although Washington’s NATO allies chose to look the other way in this clear violation of the international law, while voicing their support.
