A Facebook group named Armed Forces Tea Party on Sunday posted some photos of U.S. military members opposing President Barack Obama’s decision to intervene in Syria.
The page is calling on fans to contact their members of Congress and tell them how Americans are fed up of watching their soldiers engage in un-Constitutional conflicts:
“Just the tip of the iceberg. Our combat veterans are "tired, weary and broke" after 12 straight years of fighting. End the despair and the un-Constitutional wars. Call your congressman and sound off. Enough is enough!!!”
Here are some of the pictures:
And here’s a collage:
The Blaze took on the story and questioned the existence of these photos on social media. Citing article 88 from the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), the publication stated that it was not appropriate for military personnel to publicly oppose the President’s orders:
“Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
What do you think? Is it okay that such photos are being posted and shared on Facebook? You can share your opinion in the comments section below.
