GARDNER, KAN. --- U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran announced Saturday night that he will oppose military action against Syria --- "at this time."

Moran released a statement Saturday evening after President Barack Obama announced earlier in the day that he would seek Congressional authorization to use military action against Syria.

Moran said America could not afford another military conflict.

“Congress will soon use its Constitutionally-vested power to debate and vote on whether to intervene in Syria. America cannot afford another conflict that taxes our resources without achieving goals that advance American interests, and I will not support authorizing military action against Syria at this time.”

Congress is expected to vote on the matter in the next 10 days.
