Addendum

This article is not a source used for the video above, but it came out today and I felt it corroborated the underlying point. The Missile Attack served no practical purpose. It was either an excuse for the United States to show that it still can flex its muscles, or it was a response to the belief that “we have to do SOMETHING!”
