WASHINGTON (WKOW) – As Congress considers a possible military strike on Syria, the American public is taking up the debate among themselves.
A series of anti-war photos posted on Facebook by a group called The Armed Forces Tea Party are going viral. The pictures are of anonymous people in military uniform condemning a U.S. military strike on Syria.
If the anonymous people in the photos are active military personnel and are identified, a retired U.S. Army General says they could in some real trouble.
James "Spider" Marks says, "If anybody that is in uniform right now disagrees in advance with what the discussion is all about, they run the risk of being punished under UCMG."
UCMJ stands for the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The Department of Defense and the Tea Party group has declined to comment on the photos and their potential action.
