According to the US Department of Defence’s annual budget, a single Tomahawk missile costs $1.59 million.
Combine that by the 59 missiles the US ordered to be fired off two warships in the Mediterranean Sea, and you’re looking at a bill of around $94 million. (Source)
And that’s not counting the cost of keeping a fleet of warships in the Mediterranean Sea. Why don’t they do something about poverty, health, education and equal opportunities in their own country?But it seems the US Government is actually proud of what they’ve done:
“The United States blasted a Syrian air base with a barrage of cruise missiles Friday afternoon in fiery retaliation for this week’s gruesome chemical weapons attack against civilians.
President Donald Trump cast the US assault as vital to deter future use of poison gas and called on other nations to join in seeking “to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria.”
A Homs governor has told the Associated Press that the missile attack at the Syrian base has resulted in deaths. Reuters reports six Syrian soldiers were killed and seven wounded at the air base.
Russia responded, saying the US strike on Syria is “aggression against a sovereign state” and violates international law,” reported AP.
Probably the only thing that will stop Russia from supporting Syria militarily is the likelihood that the US government will nuke them if they do.
PS – 100 tonnes of bombs and they only killed 6 people. Now there’s a precision strike for you!
