This is a huge military test for the new administration, with Trump getting involved in his first foreign conflict. The strikes came after reporters were told earlier today not to bother leaving the Pentagon, as there could be some sort of action tonight. It also comes after Russia warned the U.S. over taking any action in Syria.
