U.S. Senator John Boozman Statement on Syrian Airstrikes

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) issued the following statement about U.S. airstrikes against Syrian airbase:

“In carrying out another chemical attack on innocent civilians, Bashar al-Assad has clearly violated international law. Limited, swift and decisive action was required to deter further brutality and show that these types of inhumane attacks will not be tolerated. Moving forward, the administration must engage with Congress to seek approval for further action. As I have said since 2013, we need a strategic plan that details U.S. military and diplomatic involvement, and outlines, most importantly, the end goal for the region and our allies”
