Gingrey’s on to something. Especially since David Cameron (PM United Kingdom) and Francois Hollande (President of France) have done similar, this wouldn’t be a bad idea for President Obama. It’s an issue that needs to be discussed and debated. Hopefully that will result in clear quantifiable goals with a clear definition of success. All of which would avoid “regime change” like the plague. For a detailed look at the various reasons for intervention go here.
Gingrey to Obama: Call Congress back
to Washington over Syrian crisis
Phil Gingrey today urged President Obama to consult with Members of Congress before taking military action in response to the Syrian conflict. Outcry from the international community over the Assad regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons on civilians has prompted questions on the United States’ response.
“The use of chemicals weapons on children and families is morally reprehensible and a grave war crime,” Gingrey said. “Given the gravity of the situation, President Obama should call on Congress to return to Washington. We must consider the next course of action and appropriate response together, and I stand ready to return immediately.”
Gingrey, along with other Members of Congress, sent a letter to President Obama urging him to reconvene Congress before making a decision on U.S. military involvement.
