U.S. Sen. Richard Burr (N.C.) issued the following statement regarding the ongoing security situation in Syria:


Civilized people should be outraged by the deaths of thousands of Syrian civilians and the many more who have been maimed in this horrible civil war.


The Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons against civilians is morally repugnant and violates long held standards of conduct.


Short of putting troops on the ground, it is time for the United States and our NATO allies to take necessary, punitive military action against the Syrian regime and send a clear signal to its leadership, and others in the region who may be contemplating using weapons of this nature, that there are consequences for these actions.
