Both of Georgia's US Senators have issued statements of support for Thursday night's US airstrikes on Syria.
Republican senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue released their statements shortly after the missile strikes on Shayrat air base, southeast of Homs.
"I salute the brave men and women of the U.S. military who conducted these operations tonight," Isakson said. "President Trump’s decision to strike the Assad regime’s air base where chemical weapons were deployed against the innocent people of Syria earlier this week sends a clear signal to the world that war crimes such as these will not be tolerated. I support the president’s swift and decisive action to punish this dictatorship for the atrocities committed."
In his statement, Perdue said he was happy to see Trump's support of the victims of the chemical attacks carried out by Syria's government led by President Bashar Assad.
“Assad is a tyrant and his chemical weapon attack against innocent civilians this week was beyond inhumane. This will not be tolerated," Perdue said. " After six years of inaction by the Obama Administration, I am glad to see that President Trump is willing to stand up for these innocent victims and stop those responsible for this violence. I commend our brave servicewomen and men who are carrying out this vital mission tonight.”
