As media fails go, this one doesn’t even move the needle as far as I’m concerned. What precisely were people finding so offensive about that? Having spent a fair amount of time sailing around on our warships myself, I’ve seen some of these missile launches first hand. Remembering that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, a significant show of force at sea such as this truly is beautiful and a real sight to behold. That’s why the military and the media work together to release such images. Nothing wrong with this whatsoever.
Video released by the military shows Tomahawk missiles targeted for a Syrian airfield launching from the decks of U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea on Thursday.
During his MSNBC program, “The 11th Hour,” late Thursday night, Williams said the “beautiful pictures at night” tempted him to quote a line from a Leonard Cohen song: “I am guided by the beauty of our weapons.” He went on to call the images “beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments.”
