Adam Kinzinger: Strikes are needed to force diplomatic end to Syrian conflict
Mr. Kinzinger, a Republican, accused the Syrian regime of violating a basic norm by using poisonous gas on its own people, citing the recent attack in Idlib province that killed dozens, including children.
He said limited airstrikes could “decapitate” Mr. Assad from his own forces and ground its air force. If the Syrians repair their military runways, he said, they should crater them again.
“I’m ashamed of our government action so far — and inaction,” Mr. Kinzinger told CNN.
He said the strikes would spur the international community and regime to end the long-running conflict.
“There’s been no stick or motivation to get to a diplomatic solution,” he said.
