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

'I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back.

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

'A perfectly executed strike last night.

Twitter users immediately saw a connection to comments from President George W. Bush in 2003 when he gave a speech announcing an end to major combat operations in Iraq with a massive banner behind him that read, "Mission Accomplished".

"The Syrian raid was so perfectly carried out, with such precision, that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term 'Mission Accomplished, '" he tweeted on Sunday.

Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Saturday after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles almost unopposed by Syrian air defenses.

The nighttime Syria assault was carefully limited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct conflict with Syria's key ally, Russia, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance.

No military response from any actors in Syria - including Iran and Russian Federation - has been seen, the Pentagon said.

In Damascus, Syria's deputy foreign minister, Faisal Mekdad, met inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW for about three hours in the presence of Russian officers and a senior Syrian security official.

"We, of course, know our work in Syria is not done", USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on "Fox News Sunday".

The strikes "successfully hit every target", said Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman.

"None of these military actions are large enough to deter chemical-weapons use when Assad thinks it's strongly in his advantage". He has continued to rail against the war while in office, and his supposed aversion to becoming entangled in unwinnable foreign conflicts led him to declare, just a few days ago, that he wanted to pull all USA troops out of Syria. "Use often!" he said. The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels that the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity. What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and to his Russian and Iranian allies. "We know that it is now up to (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad on whether he is going to use chemical weapons again, and should he use it again, the president has made it very clear that the United States is locked and loaded and ready to go", she said.

The U.S Defense Department also said in a press briefing that Friday's operations were successful, confirming that they launched 105 missiles at three facilities in Syria.

The Syrian government is believed to have been responsible for dropping a barrel bomb with chemical agents on a civilian population near Damascus a week ago.
