ATLANTA (WTOC) -

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga, issued a statement Saturday in response to President Obama announcing he will ask Congress for authorization to use military action against Syria.

"I support the use of military action in Syria. If we fail to take strong action again Syria for this horrendous attack, then we are sending a signal to Syria as well as to Iran and North Korea that they are accountable to no one," Isakson said.

Actions against Syria are in response to the August 21 chemical weapons attack that killed hundreds of citizens in that country.

Congress is scheduled to be back in session in Washington on September 9.
