Experts Chime In On What To Expect After Syrian Strike [Video]
France, Great Britain, and The United States Teamed Together To Disarm Assad’s Chemical Weapons Capabilities. Experts Step Up To Explain To The Public On What They Can Expect.
You do not get to use illegal chemical weapons against innocent women and children. After WWI, the Nations agreed to ban the use of chemical weapons after the mass devastation during that war.
Last year, the U.S. was forced to strike Syria for their use of those weapons on innocent civilians. The expectation was that Syrian dictator, Assad, would get the message.
At that time, Russia made a promise that his army would personally destroy Syria’s chemical weapons facilities. Obviously, Putin did not keep his word.
Mixed emotions, from both sides, flooded the hill as lawmakers debate what is next. Most support the President’s decision but share their concerns about the possible reaction of Assad’s largest supporters – Russia and Iran.
Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle reacted Friday night after President Donald Trump announced that U.S. military strikes would be carried out in Syria against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
The news came after a suspected chemical attack by pro-regime forces last weekend in the rebel-held town of Douma. At least 40 people died in the attack and more than 500 people, mostly women and children, were hospitalized.
On Friday, Trump said Assad’s actions were not those “of a man” but rather “the crimes of a monster instead.”
Immediately following Trump’s address to the nation, loud explosions and thick smoke were reported in Damascus.
Here’s what members of Congress and other officials had to say about the announcement:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said, “Tonight, the administration notified me of the president’s decision to use military action to deter Bashar al-Assad and respond to the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons against its own people. I support both the action and objective.
“The planning for this robust operation by the United States and our allies was clearly well-considered,” McConnell continued. “It is evident that the President was provided with a number of options, and that our forces executed a challenging mission.”
