Hudson Opposes Proposed Use of Force in Syria

WASHINGTON- U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement regarding the proposed use of force Syria:

“For two years we have seen a civil war raging in Syria. Recent reports that the Assad regime used chemical weapons against its own citizens are deeply concerning and warrant a serious discussion about the United States’ policy in the Middle East and our role of intervening in such affairs.

“I have taken the last several days to study the situation in Syria, receiving intelligence briefings and speaking with my colleagues in Congress. It has become clear to me that President Obama and his Administration do not have a cohesive long-term policy for the Middle East and are unable to articulate a strategy in Syria. The Administration has also not made it clear what objective and end game is achievable with a limited use of force. To make matters worse, it appears that if we were to pursue the President’s suggested course of military action, we would be acting unilaterally, as support from our allies is nearly nonexistent. Limited unilateral action will not send the right message to Iran and other bad actors, and I fear it will only further destabilize the region.

 “Up to this point, President Obama and his Administration have not done a credible job in demonstrating strength of conviction in the region and sending cruise missiles into Damascus now isn’t going to change that. I do not believe it is in our best interest to take the military action currently proposed by the President against Syria."
