He sounded good but

There was no yelling or screaming or insulting in Trump's talk last night about our bombing the Syrian air base from which the chemical bombs were launched. He sounded like a serious, rational person. But, as Seth Moulton points out,“So @POTUS cares enough about the Syrian people to launch 50 Tomahawks but not enough to let the victims of Assad find refuge and freedom here.” And as Elizabeth Warren states "We should not escalate this conflict without clear goals and a plan to achieve them.”

And then there is the question of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution which gives Congress - not the president - the authority to order an armed attack on a sovereign nation.
