Sen. Corker calling for a "surgical and proportional" response in Syria

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two lawmakers are calling for an immediate U.S. military response to the Syria's suspected chemical weapons attack last week.

Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee is calling for a "surgical and proportional" response that doesn't involve U.S. troops on the ground.

Democrat Rep. Eliot Engel of New York says the U.S. must respond "quickly," together with NATO allies, possibly using cruise missile strikes.

The two spoke on "Fox News Sunday" after a senior administration official said there is "very little doubt" a chemical weapon was used.
