This week, Congress may act on President Obamas request for authorization to bomb Syria.
Yesterday, a small group of protesters in Detroit rallied against military action.
They chanted Money for Detroit, Not for War as the roughly one hundred peace protesters walked down Woodward Avenue.
They want President Obama to drop his plan to bomb Syrian targets to punish the Syrian government for allegedly using chemical weapons on its own people.
One woman who declined to give her name said Im Syrian and Im an American. I would like to stop the flood of blood of innocents in Syria.
Protester Sharon Feldman helped carry a banner saying Hands Off Syria. She says bombing Syria would be a bad idea.
I feel that it would just hurt more people .we really dont know whats going on on the ground, says Feldman.
In the past week, there have been several protests in Michigan for and against bombing Syria. Another anti-war protest is planned for Ferndale this afternoon.
President Obama plans to address the nation about the Syria situation tomorrow.
Sundays small, but vocal protest took place as tens of thousands of Detroit Lions fans streamed out of Ford Field. The football fans walked quickly through the protesters, with few saying anything to the peace activists.
Several protesters wished more of Lions fans had chosen to protest the potential bombing of Syria with them instead of going to the game.
"Bomb Detroit, not Syria"
I’m not real interested in spending my money either on the war or Detroit.
That lard ass Mike Rogers came out in support for this war. How much freezer cash was he given for his support?
Where is Cindy Sheehan and the anti-war left? Now, that their man is in office, they have become quiet as a mouse.
Apparently you missed the thread, she's in favor of it........LOL!
Syria policy is a mess.
Whose fault is that?
0bama backed himself into this stupid corner.
0bama’s humiliation, despair and political defeat must serve as an example so that no president ever so stupidly puts our credibility on the line.
No bombing for Al Qaeda!
I love how all these peaceniks will support any bloody action by their demigod. MSNBC is in full war time propaganda mode. Hypocrisy and deceit are they primary characteristics.
How could you tell?
