Congressman John Culberson (TX-07) released the following statement after the United States launched missile strikes in Syria.

"The Assad regime used chemical weapons in a barbaric attack on innocent men, women and children and this cruel act cannot go unpunished. Swift decisive action like this missile strike will have a salutary effect on tyrants worldwide.

"As the leader of the free world, the United States cannot stand by and allow chemical weapons to be used against the Syrian people. I look forward to the Administration engaging with Congress on any ongoing efforts to combat atrocities in Syria."
