Congressman Robert Pittenger of Charlotte was on FOX News Wedneday where he questioned the wisdom of military action in Syria. Pittenger had just returned from a meeting in Burssels where he met with the NATO ambassador and others.
"While the use of weapons of mass destruction by President Bashar Assad is ruthless and act of barbarism, there are outcomes even more horrific,'' Pittenger, a Republican said.
"The real threat before the west, Israel and other Arab states is: Who has the ultimate possession of weapons of mass destruction following the civil war? The fall of Assad could well result in those deadly chemical and biological weapons falling into the hands of Hams, Hezbolla, al Queda or Muslim Brotherhood.''
