House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday that "Russia and Iran have blood on their hands" from the latest Syrian chemical attack and praised the U.S.-led strike as a "decisive action" against President Bashar al-Assad's assault on his own people.
"Tonight, the United States has taken decisive action in coordination with our allies," the Wisconsin Republican said in a statement. "We are united in our resolve that Assad’s barbaric use of chemical weapons cannot go unanswered."
"His regime’s unconscionable brutality against innocent civilians cannot be tolerated.
"There should be no doubt that Russia and Iran have blood on their hands, and their partnership with Assad reveals the true nature of their regimes," Ryan said.
"The United States and our allies must continue to seek ways to hold Assad’s enablers accountable.
"Let us all pay tribute to the men and women of our armed forces."
