At least one Tomahawk could've aimed at Syria runway ya' think?

Tomahawk Cruise Missle made by Raytheon

It's impossible to understand how a volley of expensive Tomahawk missles were directed to destroy air base hangers without also destroying the runways where President Assad launched bombing attacks against his own people.

What was the point of the Syria attack? Morover, what now?

Although I know virtually nothing about Tomahawk missles, the fact is, they are capable of hitting airport runways.  Here's the descritpion of the sophisticated capabilities of the Ratheon Tomahawk.  

Modern, Mature, PowerfulToday's Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile can circle for hours, shift course instantly on command and beam a picture of its target to controllers halfway around the world before striking with pinpoint accuracy.

Tomahawks can be launched from a ship or submarine and can fly into heavily defended airspace more than 1,000 miles away to conduct precise strikes on high-value targets with minimal collateral damage. Launching the weapon from such a long distance helps to keep sailors out of harm's way.

The Tomahawk is a highly accurate, GPS enabled precision weapon that has been used over 2,000 times in combat, and flight tested more than 500 times.

During the NATO-led effort against the regime of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, Tomahawk played an instrumental role in the operation. One submarine fired more than 90 missiles at a variety of targets, and the USS Barry fired the 2,000th Tomahawk in combat.

As the battlespace and needs of the warfighter evolve, Raytheon is doing what it has always done: supporting the military with the world's most advanced cruise missile – Tomahawk.

MaineWriter- Although the Tomahawk is obviously a deadly weapon, it's only as effective as the direction programmed into its delivery. Donald Trump wasted the expensive military weapons, while the attack accomplished nothing. Even worse, the useless Syrian attack has now boxed the USA response for future operations.  In as much as those Syrian air fields are still operational, the evil Assad regime can use the runways to launch air strikes in defense of any future US military operations in the area. It's unbelievable incompetence.
