A number of U.S. services members are speaking out against possible U.S. involvement in Syria on Twitter and other social media websites.
Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.), countering the idea that support for Syrian intervention is strong throughout the Nation, tweeted Saturday, â€śI’ve been hearing a lot from members of our Armed Forces. The message I consistently hear: Please vote no on military action against #Syria.â€ť
Indeed, Amashâ€™s Twitter feed is full of messages from vets opposed to war:
