Kucinich: US 'Immeasurably' Closer to War in Syria Democratic congressman:
Obama deployed troops 'without notifying Congress'

Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich believes the deployment of
American troops in Jordan — which was announced Wednesday — brings the
United States "immeasurably" closer to being dragged into the civil war
"I can see in a moment how it happens: we're a few dozen miles from
the Syrian border and all of a sudden we are within the reach of
physical danger. All it takes is a single incident," Kucinich said in a
phone interview with U.S. News.
The Ohio congressman complained that the commander-in-chief sent the
troops to Jordan "without notifying Congress." Ironically, Kucinich
noted, the Obama administration announced the deployment exactly ten
years after the House of Representatives authorized President George W.
Bush to invade Iraq.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta disclosed on Wednesday that over 100
American troops had been sent to near the Jordanian border with Syria.
Kucinich, however, doesn't see the necessity of sending troops.
"Putting U.S. troops on that border draws the U.S. much closer to war in
Syria, which is a nightmare already and can be more of a nightmare for
our country," he said. "The talk of stockpiles of chemical and
biological weapons ... that's an argument for making an effort to try to
lessen the violence, not intensify it."
"There's a trail of causality here," Kucinich added. "Once you
position U.S troops on the border of a conflict area, it immeasurably
increases the possibility of the U.S. getting drawn into the conflict —
because we're there."
