COLLINS STATEMENT ON SYRIAN AIRFIELD STRIKE

Apr 7, 2017
Statement

WASHINGTON—The United States initiated an airstrike against Syria's Shayrat Airfield. Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) issued the following statement in response:

"This week’s chemical attacks in Syria came from a wicked regime that slaughtered its own citizens, including women and children. Inaction has characterized the United States’ response to the Assad government for too long, and last night America took appropriate action. We need a decisive strategy for restoring justice and human rights in Syria, and we in Congress look forward to working with the President to develop that plan."
