    It took a few years, but the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act will finally make its way to the President's desk to become law. And for the Syrian people, this means there will finally be some justice brought to the evil Assad regime and those who act on his behalf, we know these sanctions will not end the pain and sorrow that this war in Caesar Syria has caused, nor recover the many lives lost, but the message of the Caesar Bill is loud and clear. We will not turn a blind eye to the atrocities in Caesar Syria, and we will make sure those responsible will pay for their crimes.

  3. Erin Murphy:

There is also the question of who you are punishing and unintended consequences.
