Weber Statement on Syria

Apr 7, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – In response to the actions that occurred in Syria this week, Representative Randy Weber (R – Friendswood) issued the following statement:

“Earlier this week, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad carried out yet another chemical attack on his countrymen -- innocent men, women and children. Assad’s actions are continuously senseless and barbaric. He must be held accountable for his actions.

For six long years, the Obama Administration did nothing but draw red lines in the sand, only to let Assad step over them with no repercussions. This is no longer the case.

President Trump showed that he is ready and willing to act with appropriate speed and strength. I support President Trump’s targeted military strike on the Syrian airfield.”
