The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue to use chemical weapons. Last night we obliterated the major research facility that it used to assemble weapons of mass murder. I spoke to the president this morning and he said, if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded.
When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line. The Security Council has failed in its duty to hold those who use chemical weapons to account. We are prepared to sustain this pressure if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will.
