U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is cutting short his summer vacation to return to Washington, ahead of a congressional debate on the possibility of military action against Syria.
Durbin issued a statement over the weekend saying he is willing to consider such action, but he did not commit to supporting that strategy.
Meanwhile, Democratic congressman Bill Enyart says the job for Congress now is to find the “least bad option.”
Enyart is a retired National Guard general, and says, quote, “people are going to die if we act, and people are going to die if we don’t.”
