U.S. missile and air strikes will be “militarily effective” in preventing the Syrian military from conducting further chemical weapons attacks and will also weaken Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told a House hearing on Tuesday.

“You know, we can’t prevent him from using chemical weapons again,” Gen. Martin Dempsey told the House Armed Services Committee.

“We’ve got a full range of options, but I will also say, importantly, the president has not yet given me the final decision on those target packages. We’ve got a range of options.”
