Are we going to war, again

“We are damned if we do and, damned if we don’t” – Congresswoman Gwen Moore

While in town for the weekend after recovering from knee replacement surgery, Congresswoman Gwen Moore took time to speak to The Courier about her thoughts of the crisis in Syria. On August 21 there was an attack against the rebel forces fighting the government of Syria in which reports state that there were 281 to as high as 1,429 rebels killed by the chemical weapon, sarin. On September 9, 2013 Congresswoman Moore and the House of Representatives were scheduled to hear opinion, debate and vote on a resolution to use military force against the government of Syria headed by Bashar al-Assad.

It (modified resolution) sounds like regime change. There seems to be no limitations.” A subsequent email to The Courier clarified that ground troops are still barred in the Senate resolution.

“(The program) helped me to consolidate the campaign structure and it helped me to be more effective in my message,” said state Rep. Penny Bernard Schaber, D-Appleton, who completed the training alongside state Sen. Jessica King, D-Oshkosh, in 2007.
