FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE AND HUCK PAC ANNOUNCE RESULTS OF MIKEHUCKABEE.COM SYRIA POLL 

Huckabee and Huck PAC release statement about results of poll:  Do you support the use of force in Syria? 

Little Rock, AR - Governor Mike Huckabee issued the following statement about the results of his poll asking if the use of force in Syria is appropriate.

Over 27,000 voted in the poll.  The results were overwhelmingly against the use of force, with 25,628 or 94% voting against the use of force.  It is clear that the majority of the American people are against any action by the United States military against Syria.  President Obama continues to show ineptness in his handling of the crisis in Syria. 

Over a year ago he said in a speech in the White House Rose Garden that the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime would be the crossing of a red line for him.  Now he says he didn't set a red line.  A short time ago he said he didn't need Congressional approval, but now he says he wants Congressional approval and if they don't give it to him, he may still attack Syria.

An unusual alliance has formed in Congress, with Democrat liberals and Republican conservatives joining forces to oppose any action against Syria.  Conservative Senators such as Rand Paul and Marco Rubio (Huck PAC endorsed candidates) voted against the Senate resolution authorizing an attack on Syria.  In the House, Conservatives like Rep. Ted Poe have already decided to vote no, while many others have not made up their mind.

It's time for the President to explain to the American people why he feels it is necessary to attack Syria, and what proof the Administration has that the Assad regime did use chemical weapons against its own people.

    Governor,
    I suggest you do some research to answer the following Questions:
    1-Which country, USA or Russia, is experiencing the greatest Christian revival?
    2-Which President, Putin or Obama, has embraced Christianity?
    3-Why would Syria's Assad government protect Christians while the rebels seek to kill Christians?
    4-Why would the Assad government use chemical weapons when they are winning the war using conventional weapons? Isn't it possible the rebels acquired these weapons and used them?
    5-Why, when faced with an option, does Obama always support the Islamic Brotherhood?
    I have been in Damascus. I have also been in a facility constructed to destroy US stockpile of nerve gas. Two out of three structures failed to function. I don't know about the third. It was under construction when I left. For obvious reasons, I prefer you do not use my name if you make this last information public. I can tell you about the location of this facility if you wish to pursue it further.

    Mr. Hunter,
    Concerning Syria.
    No.
    We’re all sick and tired of the middle east’s incompetent leadership(s) and civil factions who can’t see past the end of their noses. There is no question that if their government is gassing people, it is an atrocity. If the rest of the world will not get behind action against Syria, then forget it. Even then, I’d like to see America let someone else lead for a change.
    Obama has found relief form his self-described “phony scandals”, and even republicans have joined in the diversion. Get back on track.
    No, no, no.
    Do not use my money to play policeman.
    Thank you
    Mark Wade

    Dear Mike,

    I was watching your show tonight, and listened to your discussion regarding the "Syrian Strategy"? I am a retired USN SEAL, CWO2. I am also studying for a graduate degree in Terrorism and Counter terrorism Studies.
    I had been employed after completing my career with the USN, as a D.O.D; (SME), for USJFCOM, as a Joint Special Operations Rep. The strategy that our senior military staff at the JCS and theatre Commanders should be want we call a 'Surgical Strike'. This would focus on only the necessary and most important infrastructure of Assads Command & Control stations. This would require a strong overpowering of the Muslim Brotherhood targets as well, and hopefully embolden the good Syrian civilians to take back their nation. Obama has left us looking weak, embarrassed and really not trusted by to many of our friends in this world. We do have the technology for this and this can prevent placing any of our own forces, or as few as possible to have to go there? We need strong intelligence to fully understand the targets and be prepared for retaliations here at home as well. There are more than 23 Al-Qaeda,Hezbollah cells within our border's! Obama could be our worst enemy today!What about Benghazi?We should not follow his wants just those from our professional command staff and operational forces.
    The 'RED LINE', discussed was the (Chemical Weapons Convention), CWC; an international Treaty signed by 125 nations to deplete their stockpiles of chemical/biological weapons in a ten year period. Although this agreement was thought up during the Cold War period from atrocities in Africa,Bosnia, Russia, Iran, Iraq. It was not fully implemented and signed until (1997). The nations that did sign this agreement were, Russia, U.S.A., China, Iran,India,etc! Reference: J.Tucker, Toxic Terror,(2001).For your own information of this. Thank you Sir, and enjoy your week.
    "GOD Bless America!

    R,

    Patriot, James Schombs (Anon.pls.)

    I live in Illinois and think it is disgraceful that they are making it mandatory to teach sex education to Kindergarten. Their little minds are not ready for that. If I had a child ready for Kindergarten, he or she would NOT be going. Home schooling or private school would be the way to go for me. We are certainly living in last days like the Bible says. What is right is wrong and what is wrong is right. Shameful.
