Rep. Stewart’s Statement on Military Action Against Syria
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), a former Air Force bomber pilot and member of the House Intelligence Committee, released the following statement regarding the military strike against Syria:
"While tonight's military action against Syria won’t remove Assad from power nor solve the horrifying humanitarian disaster, destroying the airfield will damage Assad’s ability to launch attacks against his own people. It also sends a very clear message that the U.S. will no longer tolerate Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his own people. Other tyrants around the world are surely taking note as well."
