Carolina Conservatives United say ‘No’ to military intervention in Syria, urge Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott to vote against military action

One conservative grassroots organization in the Palmetto State is saying “No” to military intervention in the civil war in Syria and are urging the entire South Carolina Congressional Delegation vote against this measure.

Carolina Conservatives United (CCU) Chairman Bruce Carroll  issued the following statement:

We share the humanitarian concern for the Syrian people who have been killed and injured by conventional weapons and chemical weapons and the millions of refugees that are suffering due to that nation’s two-year civil war. 

However, we strongly believe the situation in Syria will not improve, and could well deteriorate, due to American military involvement.  Additionally, we do not believe President Obama has adequately made the case that any national security interests are at stake, a minimum requirement for military actions abroad.

Therefore we would like to, in the strongest terms, urge our Members of Congress, especially Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, to vote against military action against the Syrian regime.  We urge our fellow citizens in South Carolina to call their Congressmen and Senators immediately so that our elected officials are completely aware of the views of the people on this important matter.

The CCU sent letters to every member of the South Carolina Congressional Delegation requesting a “NO” vote on Syria use of force.

In addition, they will also track the vote for authorization of force in Syria as a “key vote” for purposes of their ongoing Congressional scorecard that aligns to the organization’s fundamental principles.
