Boehner and Pelosi: Hawkish on Syria

 The leaders of the House of Representatives declared on Tuesday their support for President Barack Obama's proposed strike on the Syrian government for its use of chemical weapons on civilians.

"The use of chemical weapons is a barbarous act. It's pretty clear to me that the United Nations is unable to take action; NATO, not likely to take action," House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) shared with reporters after a meeting in the White House, CNN reported.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) added that the U.S. government must respond to actions "outside the circle of civilized human behavior."
