Reed’s Statement About Firing Missiles At Syria

April 7, 2017

Congressman Tom Reed (NY-23) released the following statement on Syria:

“We support the limited missile strike to disable President Assad’s ability to use chemical weapons on his own people. Use of weapons of mass destruction where innocent civilians, including women and children are killed, cannot go unchecked unless we risk the unfettered escalation of such weapon’s use in the future around the world. It is the right thing to do, as is our commitment to continue to search for diplomatic ways to bring peace to the region.”
