LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Rep. Mike McIntyre is speaking out on the continuing crisis in Syria.

He says he has spent a lot of time talking to his constituents in southeastern North Carolina, and overwhelmingly most people are opposed to any US involvement in Syria.

“The question for us in Congress and for us as a country is has it been a threat directly to the United States, and after going to top secret briefings and then after the meetings we have held on the national level and in the armed services community, and the answer to that is no,” McIntyre said.

McIntyre says a limited strike in Syria would not resolve any of the issues plaguing that country.

    So, are you supporting it or not? Just answer the question.

    Although, the statement on his website says that Congress should debate it, his statement does not indicate a stance in either direction. However, the quote given in this article does give his answer. Read the last phrase to get the answer:
