Rep. Pocan weighs in on Syria while in Madison

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Democratic Congressman Mark Pocan weighed in on Syria Monday while at Madison's Labor Fest.

He said he wants to see the U.S. get more international support before any strike.

"We can't go it alone," Pocan said. "We're not the world's police. And I think if we do this right, we can help make sure that more people don't die, not only from chemical weapons but from bombs in civil wars in countries across the globe."

Pocan also said he thinks the U.S. needs to make a case to more people before we do anything in Syria.

Congress will not vote on the President's request to authorize the use of force until after officially returning from recess September 9.
