Sen. Jon Kyl: Obama Needs to Break Silence on Syrian Attacks

Kyl [dot] Senate [dot] gov(WASHINGTON) -- In a strong statement Sunday afternoon, Jon Kyl, the Senate's number-two Republican, said President Obama "should personally stand up and publicly condemn the attacks by the Assad regime on the Syrian people."

Kyl said that “Syria represents the latest opportunity for the United States to support a peoples’ aspirations for more freedom and to condemn repression by an entrenched regime," but that the president "has said little" about the situation in Syria.

He added that the "U.S. looks irrelevant to a growing movement of millions across North Africa and the Middle East," and that in the "long term, the damage to U.S. influence will be incalculable."

Along with condeming the attacks, Kyl said, "The president must also make clear to the rulers of Iran that their interference in Syria’s democratic uprising will be opposed by the United States.  The United States must not condone by its silence Tehran’s repression of the Syrian people any more than its repression of the Iranian people."
