Liberty for All's PositionMilitary intervention in Syria absent a formal declaration of war constitutes an unauthorized and unconstitutional act of war on another nation. This bill would prohibit such acts and would restore Congress to its proper role with respect to the oversight of foreign wars. In addition to serving as an unconstitutional war, aid to al-Qaeda rebels in Syria while we are actively engaged in an armed conflict with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan defies common sense and consistently puts our military in harms way. Liberty For All supports a non-interventionist foreign policy that is mindful of George Washington's warning to avoid entangling alliances.
Current StatusThis bill was assigned to a congressional committee on June 26, 2013, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.
