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, “I’ve been hearing a lot from members of our Armed Forces. The message I consistently hear: Please vote no on military action against #Syria.”
Indeed, Amash’s Twitter feed is full of messages from vets opposed to war:
