Nancy Mace on War & Peace

 

 


Intervention in Syria would bolster al-Qaida

Nancy Mace has said intervention in Syria would just bolster the opposition that's dominated by al-Qaida. "I will stand with the people of South Carolina against Obama's failed leadership and against military action in Syria," she said.

State Sen. Lee Bright, known for his inflammatory claims and bombastic bravado, went even further. "John McCain and Lindsey Graham seem willing to go to the ends of the earth to help the Muslim Brotherhood," he zapped.

Graham never engaged his foes directly, but his comments encapsulated the arduous sell to the public. "I don't want another Iraq or Afghanistan war because that's just not what we need to do," he said, before outlining his support for a contained military strike designed to degrade Syria's ability to deliver chemical weapons in the future and assist those who want to overthrow President Bashar Assad.

Only Congress has the ability to declare war

I believe in the Constitution and that only Congress has the ability to declare war. I also believe before making such a declaration, we ensure we have looked at all possible options.

Radical Islam continues to be a threat. I do not support continuing to send US aid and weapons to countries that burn our flag, train terrorists or that threaten American interests at home or abroad.

Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
