When President Donald Trump threatened to strike Syria, the US Navy only had one destroyer in the region - leading people to assume that it take part in the strike.

Viewed narrowly as an attempt by the allies to punish Syria's government, it was a roaring success.
President Donald Trump this weekend pulled off...
