Was the missile strike in Syria the correct response?

Following last night's decision by President Donald Trump to lob 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria, many are now asking if it was the correct action to take or if it was enough action or should any action have been taken at all? "The Morning Blaze" crew wrestled with those questions and more.

"Fifty-nine Tomahawk missiles were launched, six people were reportedly killed. The questions this morning are: Is that the proper response? Is that the proper action?"  Doc Thompson asked.

Thompson readily acknowledged that there is a strong emotional pull for anyone who has seen the video footage following the gas attack in Syria. However, he wondered if that was the basis on which we should employ military actions overseas or if other criteria, such as US national interests, ought to be applied:

"If you make an argument that what's going on in Syria is so horrible because 400,000 people have died, don't you automatically have to then say, 'What about the rest of the world?' What about North Korea, which is an even greater threat to America now it appears? Iran?"

Producer Kris Cruz added that many Twitter users in Syria have changed their profile picture to an image of President Trump with the text, "We Love Trump," written in Arabic, prompting Doc to respond:

"They see Trump doing something, they say, 'Yeah, we love you. You're helping us. You're throwing us a life preserver.' Will it actually help them in the long run? I don't know, but they see action helping them."
