King A “No” Vote on Syria

Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King says he’d vote “no” on a congressional resolution authorizing a military strike into Syria, but King believes Russia’s idea of getting the Syrian government to give up its chemical weapons may be the best answer for President Obama.

King would support some kind of United Nations team assessing Syria’s chemical weapons and taking control of those stockpiles, but only if “credible” Americans are part of that U-N team. King believes President Obama had the constitutional authority to order a limited military strike on his own in August shortly after initial reports that hundreds of Syrians had died from chemical weapons. King says Obama spawned a “global debate” by waiting for a vote in congress.

King says the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda have infiltrated the rebel forces in Syria and weakening Syria’s government with military strikes might “pave the road to Damascus” for the “bad elements” among the Syrian rebels.
