Oregon's two senators, Democrats Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, said Monday that they are reserving judgment on whether the U.S. should launch a military strike against Syria in retaliation for the regime's apparent use of poison gas.
“If the last 12 years has taught us anything it is that the American military should not be used as the world’s police force, it should only be used to protect the American people and vital American interests. I am still not convinced that the unilateral use of American armed forces in the Syrian Civil War is in the vital national security interests of the United States. I also have grave concerns with the wording of the proposed resolution allowing the use of force which could be interpreted to be far less limited and much more open ended than the President has suggested. “I will continue to diligently review all of the information put forward and listen to thoughts of my constituents as Congress moves forward in the debate over whether to allow the use of American armed forces in the Syrian Civil War, but at this point I do not believe the case has yet been made.”
sure no one will be surprised by that tho. Hope she listens to the people, don't sound like she is to excited about the situation either.

This is a war for power in the middle east. And the sorry fact is, being a politician means you have to make the ugly choice of choosing your country's benefit over another, even if it means mucking over the other country.
