Local Response To Syria Threat

Posted: Updated:


We want to know what you think about a potential US strike on Syria.
Go to the Your Fox 18 Facebook page and leave a comment. Rebecca already wrote "Military strikes lead to military intervention. no, I do not believe the United States should do this." 

We reached out to our representatives and asked for a response to the possible strike and all we talked to tell us Congress should have more input in the decision.

"I do believe the administration has to clearly make the case for the American people," said Congressman Dave Loebsack. "They need to weigh out the strategic reasons behind military action." 

"Number two, and I don't think there's any disagreement on this, we do not want boots on the ground," said Rep. Cheri Bustos. "I haven't heard anybody who's advocated for that."

And in a statement Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says "Congress has an important part in reflecting the concerns and views of Americans and should convene to discuss Syria and the role and response of the United States."
