'Mission Accomplished:' Trump uses phrase that haunts Bush

'Mission Accomplished:' Trump uses phrase that haunts Bush

'I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back.

U.S. President Donald Trump announces missile strikes on Syria while delivering a statement from the White House in Washington, U.S., April 13, 2018.

Prime Minister Theresa May said, per CNN, she had "authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use".

Later, President Bush admitted that the banner was a mistake.

They hadn't. The vast majority of the combat deaths in Operation Iraqi Freedom occurred after Bush made that speech in front of the "Mission Accomplished" banner.

And, is not Trump the one who blasted the likes of President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for telegraphing the usa' movements?

The administration has committed around 2,000 ground troops in Syria.

"It's obviously too late and I get the symbolism that came back to bite us months later when the war turned and the insurrection grew, but there is an interesting back story to the "Mission Accomplished" story", Fleischer began. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

And now, just hours removed from strikes on Syria that were hotly debated even within his administration - and for which there is no congressional authorization - Trump is using those same words to declare victory. Does he support the ouster of Assad? The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used. "Assad has succeeded, at least for the foreseeable future, and he is capitalizing on that".

During a press briefing, Pentagon Spokeswoman Dana White defended the use of the phrase on the basis that it was "mission accomplished" because it was successful and the objectives were met. We hit the sites, the heart of the chemical weapons program.

"It's a tough contradiction for him to sort out", the official said. And now you know the full story, ' he said.

In his televised address from the White House on Friday, Trump said the US was prepared to keep up the economic, diplomatic and military pressure on Assad until he ends a pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons. In fact, he said, "Our mission continues. As he declares the US -led airstrikes against Syria a success, President Donald Trump is adopting a phrase that a previous president came to regret - 'mission accomplished". What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and to his Russian and Iranian allies.
