Shooting cruise missiles at Syria not very popular among Americans


GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Federal lawmakers who plan to vote in favor of a U.S. military strike against Syria "might as well start cleaning out" their office, U.S. Rep. Justin Amash said Thursday.

Amash, R-Cascade Township, tweeted that the "unprecedented level of public opposition" to military intervention in the country should beg for dissenting votes.

"If you're voting yes on military action in #Syria, might as well start cleaning out your office," Amash tweeted Thursday afternoon. "Unprecedented level of public opposition."
