WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement following missile strikes by the U.S. military, in coordination with U.S. allies France and the United Kingdom, against the Syrian regime and President Bashar al-Assad:
“Chemical attacks by Bashar al-Assad on the Syrian people must be met with aggressive action to deter these atrocities in the future. This joint operation, with our steadfast allies the UK and France, delivered that message in a very measured and direct manner. It is past time for Russia and Iran to end their support of this brutal regime.
“As always, we are grateful to the men and women of our military whose skill and dedication are instrumental in defending our country and national interests.”
