Williams, of fallen fame, took over Twitter trends again today when he couldn't stop elaborating on the "beauty" of missiles being fired off of the decks of U.S. Navy vessels. The United States blasted a Syrian air base with a barrage of cruise missiles in fiery retaliation for this week's gruesome chemical weapons attack against civilians. "I am guided by the beauty of our weapons", Williams said, a lyric from Cohen's 1988 song "First We Take Manhattan". He went on to call the images "beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments".
Some people deemed the comments as insensitive or perhaps a bit too cavalier.
"If Brian Williams thinks missiles are attractive, just wait until he sees a giant, blooming mushroom cloud", Twitter user Warren Holstein wrote.

The blast, which hit the checkpoint at the main southern entrance to the city on Wednesday night, also wounded at least 36 people.
U.S. news anchor Brian Williams has been criticised after quoting Leonard Cohen lyrics when reporting on the United States' missile strike in Syria. "There's something about terrorism that I've always admired", he said.
Williams got dropped from NBC's Nightly News and now has a spot at MSNBC, not almost as high profile.
"The fact that there are no alibis or no compromises".
Williams included in his pro-war gush an un-ironic quote from Leonard Cohen. I don't like it when it's manifested on the physical plane-I don't really enjoy the terrorist activities. It was "well, you guys blow up an occasional airline and kill a few children here and there", he says.
