So why do you still not get it?

If military force is used, it must be used massively, and even with disregard for human life so that the relevant item is destroyed. Embarrassing are so many so emotional as to confuse a 'big dic' attack on irrelevant items with a strategic objective.

Objective of that Syrian attack was intentionally avoided. They did not even take out fuel depots or munitions dumps. The Donald's $100 million attack could only be more trivial had he attacked corn fields.
