Senator Chuck Grassley made the following comment about possible military action by the United States in Syria.
“I met with Iowans in 15 communities this week. There are a lot of questions about possible military action by the United States against the Syrian government. Statements today by the Secretary of State and our President are compelling, and there’s no doubt the world community should be united in condemning any chemical weapons attack. Congress has an important part in reflecting the concerns and views of Americans and should convene to discuss Syria and the role and response of the United States under our tradition of moral leadership as well as what is a national security interest of the United States and what justifies the expenditure of U.S. resources. I want to know what the goal of the military strike is, how civilian casualties will be avoided, what the strategic plan is, and how we will know if the effort was successful.”
