Heritage Action for America, the activist arm of the Heritage Foundation, has come out against military action in Syria, saying that there is no U.S. interest at stake in the conflict.

The group also says that involvement in the civil war would not prevent further abuses by the Syrian regime.

"Heritage Action is opposed to punitive missile strikes on the Syrian regime," the organization said in a press release Wednesday. "Yesterday's hearing made it clear there is not a vital U.S. interest at stake.

"Further there is not a clear achievable, realistic purpose to the use of force being contemplated by the Obama administration and officials offered little evidence such action would prevent further abuses."

The announcement comes after The Heritage Foundation, now headed by former Sen. Jim Demint, published the "Top 5 Reasons Not to Use Missile Strikes in Syria" on its blog last week.
