Area Members Of Congress Undecided On Syria Strike


A Central Illinois congressman says the task ahead for lawmakers is to choose “the least bad” option for dealing with the crisis in Syria. 

 

President Obama wants Congress to approve his plan for limited military strikes in Syria in retaliation for that government’s alleged use of chemical weapons against its own people.  Democrat Bill Enyart… a retired National Guard general… says, quote, “people are going to die if we act. And people are going to die if we don’t.”

 

U.S Senator Dick Durbin is not committing to a military strike against Syria, but says he is open to the debate.  Durbin says President Obama did the right thing in calling for Congress to approve any military response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime.  And Durbin says if military action is authorized, it will be limited and will not involve U.S. forces on the ground.
