U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement on tonight’s military strikes in Syria:

"After Syrian moms and dads buried their children, American troops met injustice with strength. The use of chemical weapons cannot become normal - civilized people cannot grow indifferent to such suffering. After sending a clear message tonight, the President should propose to Congress a comprehensive strategy to protect American interests from a humanitarian crisis that threatens to destabilize our regional allies and create vacuums for jihadi sanctuaries."
