Republican representative Michael McCaul of Texas and Democratic representative Chris Van Hollen of Maryland sparred on Fox News Sunday over how much credit President Obama deserves for the new chemical-weapons pact regarding Syria.
But one thing they agreed on: U.S. troops should not be on the ground there to enforce the agreement.
“I would hope it would be mostly Russian forces on the ground. I think it’s going to be extremely difficult . . . going into a civil-war situation trying to remove and destroy chemical weapons,” McCaul said, adding that it would “hopefully [be] without any American troops being put on the ground.”
“We should have international inspectors on the ground — no Americans on the ground,” Van Hollen said.
