Senator Kirk Wants Military Action Against Syria

Posted by wlpo on August 27, 2013

QUAD CITIES, Ill. (AP) – U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk is advocating for the U.S. to launch a missile strike at the Syrian regime which is believed to have used chemical weapons on civilians.

Kirk made the comments Monday while visiting the Rock Island Arsenal.
He opposes extending “boots on the ground” U.S. military involvement in Syria. He likened an air strike to the 1998 attack on Iraq aimed at curbing weapons of mass destruction.

Kirk is a recently retired Naval intelligence officer.
