Norcross Statement on Syria Strikes
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01), member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement about the U.S. strikes against the Syrian government:
“The strikes were an appropriate, proportional response to Bashar al-Assad regime’s horrific use of chemical weapons against civilians, including innocent children. Assad’s regime has disregarded international norms and committed awful humanitarian crimes. The United States must stand in solidarity with the international community in condemning the abhorrent actions of the Assad regime and denouncing the regime’s legitimacy entirely. Moreover, the Russian government should be held accountable for fostering the events that led to this crisis.
“Moving forward, it’s vital the Administration provides Congress, the American people and the men and women of our armed forces with an outline and explanation of its Syria strategy.”
