    Airstrikes on Syria would turn the U.S. military into “al Qaeda's air force,” former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) told The Hill.

    The outspoken anti-war activist said any such action would plunge the United States into another war in the Middle East and embolden Islamist militants fighting Bashar Assad's regime.

    “So what, we're about to become Al Qaeda's air force now?” Kucinich said. “This is a very, very serious matter that has broad implications internationally. And to try to minimize it by saying we're just going to have a 'targeted strike' — that's an act of war. It's not anything to be trifled with.”

    And that, as they say, settles that.

    The US and NATO became Al Qaeda's air force in Kosovo and Libya so why not Syria to?

    I am certainly not a Kucinich fan, but what is your point? What are the vital national interests of the United States in this situation? How does lobbing a few missiles into a sovereign state follow the intent of the Constitution? Maybe you are hoping for some guidance from the UN?

    Seems like an "enemy of my enemy" mentality (however twisted that may be).
