Should Lakeville's representative in Congress, John Kline, vote in favor of a United States attack on Syria? Let us know in the comments.
President Obama asked Congress to vote on whether the United States should attack Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad that isreported to have killed more than 1,400 people and violated international rules of war.
“The horrific acts by the Bashar Assad regime of using chemical weapons to kill citizens including children is anathema and unacceptable in our country and around the world. While I am disappointed the President put the U.S. in a difficult position by publicly using a ‘red line’ with Syria, America’s credibility is now in question and the world is watching. I am pleased the President is reaching out to Congress, but he must make the case to the American people and provide a clear and concise plan to stop Assad and warn others this type of behavior will not be tolerated.” Where do you stand? Should Kline vote in favor of the Syria attack? Let us know in the comments.
