On Sept. 5, Farmington Hills native Andrew Rocky Raczkowski, a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves and Republican Party leader, talked about Syria on WJBK-TV's "Let It Rip" with hosts Huell Perkins and Charlie Langton, and guests Brig. Gen. Michael McDaniel, a Cooley Law Professor, and Osama Siblani, publisher of Arab American News.
"If I was in Congress today, I would vote no on this resolution," Raczkowski said. "This resolution is not as focused as it should be."
In the heated discussion, Raczkowski said the U.S. does have a case if it involves only going after weapons of mass destruction; however, the resolution under consideration also mentions expanded training of rebels and other items.
"This is not our war," he said.
The Detroit Free Press reported Monday that Rep. Gary Peters, who represents Farmington Hills in the 14th Congressional District, is undecided, and Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, who represents Farmington in the 11th, planned to vote no on the resolution.
