Is there an alternative to bombing Syria? Rep. Chris Smith thinks so.
By Brad Plumer,
Are there ways to respond to the atrocities in Syria without U.S. military action? Rep. Chris Smith thinks so.
The House Republican from New Jersey introduced a bill Wednesday to set up a Syrian war crimes tribunal as an alternative to missile strikes against Bashar Assad’s government.
Smith’s resolution would call for an immediate ceasefire in Syria and direct the president to work with the United Nations to set up a tribunal to investigate war crimes committed by both the Syrian government and rebel groups in the country.
