Yoder Opposes Syrian Intervention

KC Star:
Rep. Kevin Yoder says the United States should not use its military to punish the Syrian government for the alleged use of chemical weapons.

Yoder, the 3rd district Kansas Republican, met with The Star’s editorial board Wednesday.

“I don’t think the president’s made the case for military intervention,” he said.

“There are atrocities going on that are heartbreaking. But when I talk or listen to my constituents, there is a palpable fatigue with having men and women overseas in harm’s way, in body bags coming back.”

  1. Good Morning Micheal ….

    … Do you think this is because (1) Rep. Yoder will NEVER like anything the President might do, or (2) his Mennonite heritage?

    If Channel 9 assigns you to coverage of the Kansas State Fair, you might think about stopping in Yoder (10 miles SE of Hutch) for man-on-the-street interviews at either the Yoder Meat Market or the Yoder Cafe. I don’t know if the Yoder Bakery is still just north on Main Street.

    Thanks for your coverage of issues in Kansas.
