U.S. military against striking Syria--asks lawmakers to vote "No"

Newscast Media WASHINGTON—If one has never been in the trenches, or watched the brains of his comrades spill on the ground, it is easy for one to make overtures about starting wars. War is a very ugly undertaking, and Barack Obama said after taking an evening walk, he had a change of heart about starting a new war without the approval of Congress.


After Obama announced that he would seek a vote from Congress before launching a military strike on Syria, members of the Armed Forces voiced their opposition to any such attack. 


This message is being articulated by GOP Congressman Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) who said he's been hearing from the Armed Forces who have asked him to vote no against military action on Syria.


"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," he tweeted.


If the commander-in-chief doesn't even have the support of his troops, that speaks volumes about their state of mind and morale. Below are some of the tweets:
