On Sunday morning, National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster didn’t deny that there is a possibility for further military involvement within Syria, though he did mention that President Donald Trump would rather seek a “political solution”.
When speaking to “Fox News Sunday”, McMaster said “We need to do everything we can. We need some kind of political solution to that very complex problem.”
The mention of desiring a political handshake with Syria comes days after the United States launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at an airbase used by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to drop chemical weapons on his own citizens, killing dozens of men, women, and children. McMaster also told “Fox News Sunday” that President Trump hopes to see Syrian allies Russia and Iran denounce Assad’s attack on his own people in some way.
“I’m not saying we are the ones to effect that change,” McMasters said. “[Russia and Iran] somehow think it’s OK to align with a murderous regime.”
McMaster also mentioned that U.S. involvement abroad would mean potential intervention with ISIS, given the terror group’s grip within Syria. “There has to be a degree of simultaneous action with some sequencing,” McMaster said.
Also commenting on the previous administration’s failure to aid the Syrian people, McMaster cited Trump’s delivery of a response when former President Barack Obama failed to do so.
“This is the first time that the U.S. has acted to the atrocities of the Assad regime,” NSA McMaster said. “The president will make whatever decision he thinks that is best for the American people.”
