In a blistering takedown of U.S. policy toward Syria, Rep. Adam Kinzinger on Thursday said its time to act in the war-torn nation as dictator Bashar Assads forces prepare to launch an assault on Idlib that many fear could one of the bloodiest campaigns in the ongoing war.
Mr. Kinzinger, Illinois Republican and an outspoken voice on national security issues, argued in an op-ed for Defense One that the U.S. approach in Syria both during the Obama administration and now under President Trump has been an abject failure. While he stressed that an all-out ground invasion isnt the answer, he said its long past time for a comprehensive strategy that includes ousting Mr. Assad from power.
Our lack of a strategy in Syria has been a failing practice. The initial attacks already happening in Idlib are just a prelude to the civilian bloodbath that the world will soon witness if Assad once again uses chemical weapons on his own people, he wrote. We cannot stand idly by and allow this humanitarian crisis to compound further.
Its time to act.

No its not.
We don’t ever want to get involved in Syria.
Not our problem.
Not one American life or limb.
Focus on America Mr. Kinzinger, focus on home. There are plenty of things to focus on right in your backyard.
GOP Inc loves war.
Then by all means, volunteer yourself sir.
Not our war.
When did we declare war on the Syrian government?
Did Congress declare war?
Why are we attacking a sovereign state without Congress declaring a state of war?
Did we drop that out of the Constitution?
So introduce a Declaration of War and put it to a vote.
Junior McStain holier than thou neocon jackass warmonger.
This Globalist Neocon trump hating Bush bot is dangerous.
The answer is to get out of Syria. We’re an invasion force there.
Kinzinger is a Bush League Republican.
Bush League Republicans must become extinct before the Republic does.
F*ck this sh*t.
Well, know we know who’s getting Saudi Money.
Bow to your King you RINO scum!
No neocon bullcrap...get out of that hellhole part of the globe.
Bush League Republicans refuse to secure our border or ensure the safety of Americans from illegal aliens, but they want US to spend lives and treasure to protect muslims from killing each other.
We left the Constitution behind on Usurpation Day, January 20, 2009 when all of elected and appointed allowed a non-natural born citizen to become President in violation of the Constitution.
