Chris Murphy: ‘Absolutely No Coherence’ from Trump on the Approach to Syria

‘Until we’re serious about helping to take refugees and move them to places of safety, then these U.S. strikes make life more miserable for people inside’

EXCERPT:

MURPHY: “Well first of all let’s discuss the inhumanity of a strike inside Syria that is going to frankly add to the chaos and add to the carnage. It will have a response from Assad and the Russians and the Iranians, the civil war will get more deadly. Think about the inhumanity of launching this strike amidst a policy from the United States that locks these Syrian children inside that country. Until we’re serious about helping to take refugees and move them to places of safety, then these U.S. strikes just make life more miserable for people inside. And as you mentioned, there is absolutely no coherence to the broader approach from the administration to Syria. You know, this weekend it just was terribly unclear whether we have a policy of removing Assad or whether we’re going to let the Syrian people decide."
