Survey: US Troops Oppose Syria Military Action

“A Military Times survey of more than 750 active-duty troops this week found service members oppose military action in Syria by a margin of about three to one.”

“The survey conducted online Monday and Tuesday found that about 75 percent of troops are not in favor of air strikes in response to reports that the Syrian government used chemical weapons to kill civilians in that country.”

“A higher percentage of troops, about 80 percent, say they do not believe getting involved in the two-year-old civil war is in the U.S. national interest.

The piece notes: “The Military Times survey is an unscientific sampling of Military Times readers and reflects the views of many career enlisted members and officers.”
