Syria Update: Diplomatic Opening Delays Vote on Syria Intervention
UPDATE: In a televised speech, President Obama announced he had asked Congress to delay a vote on an AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force) against Syria to pursue a diplomatic plan presented by Russia that would place Syria's chemical weapons under international control. However, President Obama will still be seeking an AUMF vote soon, according to a new argument, in order to put military might behind diplomatic efforts... however, this is a dangerous BLANK CHECK for WAR which should still be rejected.
Where do SC's Congressmen stand on US military intervention in Syria?
Of South Carolina's 7 representatives in the US House of Representatives: 4 are on record opposing military intervention in Syria, 3 are undecided.
OPPOSED: Representatives WILSON (SC-2), SANFORD (SC-1), DUNCAN (SC-3), GOWDY (SC-4)
Please THANK THEM for their stand and tell them NO BLANK CHECK for WAR.. use contact links below.
UNDECIDED: Representatives CLYBURN (SC-6), MULVANEY (SC-5), RICE (SC-7)
Mulvaney and Rice are skeptical of military intervention in Syria and thus are leaning no. Rep. Jim Clyburn, as the sole Democrat, would be going against the grain of his political party to vote against the AUMF.
Keep the pressure on them... call and email them, especially after President Obama's speech.
