The situation in and around Syria is dangerous to say the least, and getting worse by the hour. United States war ships are poised to send missiles and a conduct a limited air-strike. Russia saying if we strike, they will send in a missile shield. All the while chemical weapons are being used in this (un)civil war.
I asked (via E-mail) all of the current senate candidates about their position on Syria, as it might be something they will have to deal with once they assume office.
Only one responded so far. From Stace Nelson facebook page:
What is my position on Syria? #1 The U.S. Military should ONLY be used in OUR national interests. #2 They should ONLY be put into combat when there is a clear objective with definitive goals of success that lead to their departure from the combat zone. #3 The American people support our involvement #4 Our troops should ONLY be sent into harms way as a last resort and after all other means have failed.
Those criteria have NOT been met, I do not support involving the USA in the civil secular conflict in Syria.
