Lawmakers Call For Military Response In Syria

 Two top lawmakers are calling for an immediate U.S. military response to the Syria’s suspected chemical weapons attack that killed at least a hundred civilians last week.

Republican Sen. Bob Corker is calling for the U.S. to respond in a “surgical and proportional way, something that gets their attention.” The Tennessee lawmaker says such a response should not involve U.S. troops on the ground, however.

Democrat Rep. Eliot Engel of New York says the U.S. must respond “quickly,” together with NATO allies, possibly using cruise missile strikes, as the U.S. and NATO did in Libya.

A senior administration official said Sunday there is “very little doubt” a chemical weapon was used, but added the president had not yet decided how to respond.

Corker and Engel appeared on “Fox News Sunday.”
