Possible Military Stike on Syria
The United States has concluded the Syrian government is responsible for the chemical weapons attacks on it's civilians last week.
President Barack Obama said Wednesday he has not yet made a decision whether or not to take military action against Syria.
The attack was a horrific scene in the town of Zamalka, much of the video taken with people's cell phones showing children, women and men dead and others gasping for air.
Just days following the attack, the President announced a possibly military strike.
House Speaker John Boehner called on the President to address Congress and the American people about the rationale behind a strike.
Congressman Doc Hastings echoed that sentiment today before a luncheon in the Tri-Cities.
Hastings also said a strike would create a major global impact.
"I have absolutely no doubt that the number one target of the radical islamists which princibly come out of Iran, their first target is Israel, there's no question about that," said Hastings. "If they're successful in Israel then we are the next target or parts of Western Europe. They made no bones about that. That's not new news. It's just something I think the American people are finally learning about."
The United States has not presented any proof to the public, but senior U.S. officials, have blamed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the chemical weapons attack.
United Nations and Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi said Syria is now undoubtedly the most serious crisis facing the international community.
Brahimi also said a miltary intervention in Syria would need approval from the U.N.
