“While I do not think we should become entangled in another ground war in the Middle-East, this measured response was appropriate to send the message that the United States will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons to murder innocent civilians, especially children.  
 
I do not think the President had much of a choice after we saw photos of children brutally killed by chemical weapons.
 
I am confident that President Trump will not allow us to become bogged down in a multi-year, trillion dollar war in the Middle-East.”
