The Russians/Putin were notified of the attack before it happened.

Russia didn't intervene.

They are talking very limited strikes.
The Russian threat may have saved many lives.

“A pre-designed scenario is being implemented,” Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter. “Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.”

Let's wait...

Questions are already being raised over whether Trump broke constitutional law by not seeking approval from Congress. Seems he also had a short term memory failure given the tweet he banged out five years ago in 2013.

The last 10 presidents have ignored the constitution in terms of military action.

Not so according to this.

Obama sought congressional approval for 2013 military intervention in Syria. Statements from multiple lawmakers, including Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), cited failures of the Obama administration in their support of President Trump. The fact is President Obama sought to use force in Syria in 2013, and Congress did not approve.

Here also is a list of Trumps tweets he made at the time. Interesting eh? :wink:

and now...

Top Republicans who opposed Syria attack under Obama are now praising Trump's strike

Did Congress approve Obama's strikes?

There are a handful of congressmen from both parties that opposed Obama's strikes and Trumps strikes.

Those are the handful that are not hipocrites.
