Two House Democrats Offer Measure to Ban US Troops in Syria

Tuesday, 03 Sep 2013 10:55 PM

Two Democratic House members who oppose the authority President Barack Obama is seeking for a military strike against Syria offered an alternative resolution that would prohibit use of U.S. troops in that country.

Representatives Chris Van Hollen of Maryland and Gerald Connolly of Virginia said in a statement Obama’s request “could open the door to large scale military involvement in Syria.” Their resolution would ban “any American forces on the ground in Syria” and limit the authority of Obama to take military action to 60 days.

Obama has stressed he doesn’t want to commit ground troops to Syria.
