War-wary residents near Norfolk Naval Station quietly oppose military action in Syria
from The Washington Post
Opposition to military action against Syria appears to be even stronger in the Hampton Roads area, home to the nation's largest naval base, than in the country at large. National polls show 6 in 10 Americans are against it. When U.S. Rep. Scott Rigell, R-Va., recently held a call-in town hall on the issue, 85 percent of 247 callers who answered a quick poll voted against missile strikes in Syria in retaliation for the alleged use of chemical weapons in its civil war. Just 6 percent favored it. Local politicians say they hear similar levels of opposition from their constituents.
