I seem to recall a Tomahawk strike a while back...

... on Syria, IIRC, where we warned the Russians in advance about the strike so there wouldn't be any casualties among them. Let's see, the Syrians evacuated the buildings and all we did was blow up some facilities and runway structure. Which had some on DU whining about how "ineffective" the response was, and others angrily defending it as really quite serious.

Dunno why that came to mind just now.

1. A deliberately ineffective missile strike

is the new quid pro quo to satisfy the bloodthirsty after a perceived insult.
It's appears to have become a way to back down from a war neither side wants.
