A military strike against Syria would be an ill-conceived move by the United States despite growing support for it, radio talk-show host and author Armstrong Williams says.

"We shouldn’t be fooled by the uniting of the president and the GOP leadership on declaring this military action against Syria," Williams told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The overall majority of Americans do not support the strike of Syria."

Story continues below.



Congress is debating whether to back President Barack Obama’s plan for a limited military strike against Syria in the wake of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against rebel forces — a strike that killed more than 1,400.

But Williams isn’t sure what the aftermath of a U.S. strike would be.

"It's all well and good the drumbeat that Assad has to go — but who comes after him is the real question?" he said.

"What's going to keep the country from descending into chaos in the interim even more than it is now?"

"The United States is now in a position where it must act in some capacity . . . We're reduced to making surgical strikes from the air. But what is our real goal?"
