I think Ilargi (The Automatic Earth) got it right in his recent essay Symbols of Strength, in which he proposed that the entire cruise-missile exercise had little to do with Syria and everything to do with signaling Trump’s willingness to use force to China’s President Xi jinping
If true it seems a poor way to do business.  Some say dropping the A bombs on Japan was not to defeat the already defeated Japanese but to signal Russia.

Be seeing you
