Wisconsin U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-Oshkosh) and Representative Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee) say they are backing President Barack Obama’s plans of a military attack on Syria. President Obama announced he would seek congressional approval before launching a military strike. Both lawmakers say Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has committed human rights violations and is a threat to international peace. Meanwhile, some activists in Milwaukee protested any military action in Syria, saying bombing the country will solve nothing and there needs to be a diplomatic solution.
