WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, a republican from Mississippi and a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, gives his statement on the airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.
When it comes to supporting the airstrikes against ISIS, Senator Roger Wicker is there with President Obama.
“I support the President’s decision to launch airstrikes against the terrorists’ command-and-control centers in Syria. I join all Americans in thanking our service members, as well as our intelligence agencies, for conducting this important mission with professionalism and courage.”
Senator Wicker also says this is a global effort, not just a United States fight.
“I am also pleased to hear that armed forces from five Arab nations, both Sunni and Shiite, were engaged in the operation. The world must stand together in defiance of ISIS and the evil it represents.”
Senator Wicker expresses that he doesn’t know the full strategy, but there’s hope in the situation.
“Although there are many questions that have not been answered about the Administration’s full strategy, I am hopeful that last night’s actions are indicative of a turning point in U.S. policy in the region.”
