U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, R-Murphysboro, posted a brief statement on Twitter, after the use of military force in Syria on Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack.

"The use of chemical weapons is a war crime. Period. (President Donald Trump) is right in sending a clear message to the Assad regime that inhumane acts like these are intolerable."
