Rep. Lipinski Releases Statement on U.S. Airstrikes in Syria

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today:

“The recent chemical weapons attack on civilians by the Assad regime in Syria was reprehensible and a war crime.  Last night’s missile strikes by the United States shows the Syrian government and its patrons that the use of chemicals weapons, especially against children and unarmed civilians, is unacceptable and will not go unanswered.
“If President Trump seeks to further escalate U.S. involvement in the Syrian conflict, then he must come to Congress with a plan and seek congressional approval.  We owe it to our brave men and women in the U.S. armed forces before we put them into harm’s way.”
