Reluctant to defund Obamacare or stop amnesty,
but a strike on Syria gets support????
If you are outraged by Speaker John Boehner and GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s support of the administration’s proposed strike on Syria, call them and tell them that Americans should not be on the same side with Al Quaeda. The Senate committee vote was close. From The Hill:
A Senate panel voted 10-7 Wednesday in favor of a resolution authorizing military force against Syria, setting up a final Senate vote as early as next week.
Seven Democrats and three Republicans backed the measure, while five Republicans and two Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee opposed it.
Chairman Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said the measure would be sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday.
Approval by the panel was expected, but the tight vote suggests a final vote in the Senate could be close.
We all deplore the use of chemical weapons, but this is a no-win situation. On one side is the dictator Assad, head of the Syrian Ba'ath Party (same party as Saddam Hussein). On the other side are rebels comprised in large measure of Al Qaeda jihadists. The enemy of my enemy is, in this case, my enemy. And a strike that the Obama administration has already telegraphed in advance, and a "limited" one that is not intended to advance any specific goal, certainly not any American security interests, will only increase the risks of unintended consequences.
Opposed to RINO politicians who support a military strike on Syria but won’t defund Obamacare?
Opposed to RINO politicians who support a military strike on Syria but won’t pledge to defeat any House bill on Immigration “reform”?
Opposed to RINO politicians who are voicing their support of an administration that is planning to strike Syria even if Congress votes not to authorize?
All good reasons to call the RINO GOP “leadership.”
Patriots can email or call Sen. Portman to press him to oppose a strike. At present he seems to be sitting on the fence and calling for a broad international coalition, which does not appear to be forthcoming.
