Congressman Brooks Supports President Trump and Our Troops In Syria

Press Release

Washington, DC— Friday night, American, British and French forces launched strikes against Syria and its chemical weapons program.

Congressman Brooks stated, “While I prefer that President Trump, and President Obama before him, consult with Congress and obtain an unambiguous Authorization for the Use of Military Force from Congress before engaging in acts of war against a foreign nation, I support President Trump and American troops as they engage in military action in Syria.”

Congressman Brooks continued, “The evidence is strong that the Assad Regime used chemical agents, a weapon of mass destruction, against civilian men, women and children, thereby causing many of them to die horrific deaths. Regardless of whether they are nuclear, biological or chemical, weapons of mass destruction simply cannot be tolerated in a civilized world.”

Congressman Brooks concluded, “I am particularly pleased that America was joined by our British and French allies in these strikes. It is long past time that the world join American efforts to promote a more peaceful world. I am thankful our British and French allies stood strong in our fight against Syria’s barbaric use of chemical weapons on civilian men, women and children. It is one thing for America to fight solo. It is quite another for other major nations to share our burden in the fight for liberty and freedom.”
