House approval of President Obama's plan to strike Syria is in serious doubt.
On Wednesday, Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., said he believes Congressional authorization for a military strike on Syria will fail by 20 votes, the National Review Online reports.
Salmon, who said he has received 500 calls from constituents regarding a possible military attack with only two claiming to be in favor of an airstrike, is himself against issuing any authorization for the use of force.
I dont see any national-security imperative for our country at all, Salmon said.
Both sides in this equation are bad actors.
Salmon cites President Obamas inability to form an international coalition in favor of involvement and the fact that an overall objective for a missile strike has not been presented.
Other than saving face for the president, I dont understand what we would be doing, Salmon said.
He also puts no credence in the claim that any military action will be short-lived.
Nobody believes this is going to be a couple surgical strikes, Salmon said.
Salmons view that a House vote authorizing the use of force in Syria will be defeated by 20 votes is kind, in the face of two whip count tallies released today.

This Syria bs is put out there to distract us from the Amnesty bill that is coming up. Its to get us thinking about this BS while they pass the amnesty bill behind our backs So we dont lobby our congressmen to not pass amnesty
call Congress . tell them no immigration related bill from the House. Focus people
Focus on stopping the amnesty bill and call out crap like this.
99% of the media news stories are to distract us from what the government is doing or to advance the socialist/democrat agenda. its not news
...”This Syria bs is put out there to distract us from the Amnesty bill that is coming up. Its to get us thinking about this BS while they pass the amnesty bill behind our backs So we dont lobby our congressmen to not pass amnesty.”...
Don’t forget Benghazi, the NSA and IRS scandals which are still out there begging for someone to be held accountable.
Anyone KNOW the EXACT date the Chemical Weapons were used in Syria? Was Obama on VACATION at the time??
In the end, the vote will not matter. We already know that Damascus will be destroyed. (Ref. Isaiah 17)
My guess is that Obama’s puppet masters insist that he strike Syria, regardless of the Congressional vote. They want a pipeline through Syria and cannot get it with Assad in the way.
Then Syria strikes Israel.
Then Israel destroys Damascus.
Then Israel gets blamed for everything.
Count on it.
I write my congressmen a lot. Each time I tell him if he votes for ANY amnesty, ANY immigration reform other than obeying and enforcing current laws, or anything that whiffs of illegals getting ANY concessions, HE'LL be out of a job. He's a grown man; he should be able to multi-task his NO's
