Congressman Kinzinger calls for the U.S. to take action after Russian airstrikes in Syria

Posted by wlpo on October 1, 2015

Does your congressman want another U.S. involved war in the Middle East?

Upon hearing that Russia started airstrikes in Syria, Republican Adam Kinzinger took to the House floor yesterday. He believes Russia is not bombing Syria because they want to defeat terrorists, but instead Russia is trying to “rebuild the Soviet Empire and prop up their dictators in the Middle East.”

Kinzinger says in order to restore order in Syria and the Middle East, the United States must step in. He says it doesn’t mean 300,000 troops have to be sent to Syria but he hopes to “wake up tomorrow and hear on the news that President Obama has said that America will reassert its leadership in the Middle East.”

Kinzinger said what you’re seeing in the Middle East is a “lack of American leadership and a situation spun out of control.”
