Congressman: People not convinced U.S. should attack Syria

Congressman Michael Conaway (R-Midland) said people in his Texas district, which includes Hood County, aren’t convinced that the U.S. should attack Syria. “It is unquestioned that the use of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons should be universally condemned and confronted,” he said. “However, I believe that the president has not yet presented a plan that would fully address the use of chemical weapons in Syria and prevent future chemical attacks by the Assad regime on the Syrian people. As I have heard at town halls and from calls to my offices, the people of Texas’ 11th congressional district aren’t persuaded either.”
