Rep. Yoho Introduces Legislation Prohibiting Military Assistance in Syria

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Ted Yoho (FL-03) has introduced legislation to prohibit military assistance in Syria. If passed, the bill would not allow the distribution of funds to aid opposition forces in Syria. Congressman Yoho said:

"Anyone who thinks that arming rebel opposition in Syria is a good idea should learn lessons from our past. These same policies have created monsters in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other hot spots around the globe. The Syrian "opposition' is a mix of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood of Syria and organizations that have pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda. To think we can guarantee any assistance won't come to the aid of the groups that mean us harm is naïve at best and fatal at worst. I don't believe arming anyone in Syria makes any American safer."

The bill, designated H.R. 2503, includes findings that state the nature of the opposition forces in Syria.
