Kucinich: U.S. ‘Immeasurably’ closer to war in Syria as American troops to be deployed in Jordan

US News Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich believes the deployment of American troops in Jordan – which was announced Wednesday – brings the United States “immeasurably” closer to being dragged into the civil war in Syria.

“I can see in a moment how it happens: we’re a few dozen miles from the Syrian border and all of a sudden we are within the reach of physical danger. All it takes is a single incident,” Kucinich said in a phone interview with U.S. News.

The Ohio congressman complained that the commander-in-chief sent the troops to Jordan “without notifying Congress.” Ironically, Kucinich noted, the Obama administration announced the deployment exactly ten years after the House of Representatives authorized President George W. Bush to invade Iraq.
