A bipartisan group of lawmakers cautiously applauded President Donald Trump after he ordered missile strikes against Syrian government targets
in response to a chemical weapons attack in that country earlier this week.
The US Navy launched more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Shayrat airfield and nearby military infrastructure controlled by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad early Friday morning local time.
“Making sure Assad knows that when he commits such despicable atrocities he will pay a price is the right thing to do,
” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement.
But he warned that the Trump administration needs to “come up with a strategy and consult with Congress before implementing it.
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, a Republican, said: “
Assad was warned, repeatedly, by the U.S. and the U.N. that the intentional targeting of innocent men, women and children is intolerable. Now Assad has been caught red-handed carrying out another abhorrent chemical attack.”
