#IDidntJoin: Stunning Photos Of U.S. Service Members Publicly Saying No To War With Syria
What do members of the U.S. military think about the possibility of a war with Syria? So far, they appear to be overwhelmingly against it just like the rest of the general public. In fact, a new Twitter hashtag (
#IdidntJoin) has been flooded with messages from service members expressing their displeasure with the idea of being forced to fight for al-Qaeda in Syria. This is consistent with what we have been hearing from other sources as well. For example, U.S. Representative Justin Amash recently sent out a tweet with the following message: “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.” Of course there are probably a few members of the military that would love a war with Syria, but they appear to be very much in the minority. Hopefully the Obama administration and members of the U.S. Congress are listening.
Posted below are photos taken from Twitter of American service members publicly declaring that they do not want war with Syria. In these photos they are wearing their uniforms, but they are obscuring their faces because they could potentially get in a lot of trouble for publicly defying the Obama administration.
We should applaud these brave service members for being willing to publicly take a stand like this…
