Bill Johnson Statement on Military Strike in Syria
Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement regarding President Trump's announcement of strikes in Syria:
America is the guardian of the gate of freedom, and we carry the banner of liberty for the world. Around the globe, people were wondering what our response to the barbarism of the Assad regime would be. Innocent men, women, and children were gassed with chemical weapons - the use of these weapons must not be tolerated anywhere.
Tonight's strikes were conducted with international partners, and reflect President Trump's commitment to restoring America's leadership and bringing Assad - and those that back him - to justice. We are sending a clear message - the U.S. and our allies will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons, and Russia and Iran must end their support for Assad, a designated state sponsor of terrorism.
