Party of Hawks Turns Dovish on Syria

Politico: "Of all the unexpected turns in the Syria debate, one stands out most: The GOP, the party of a muscular national defense, has gone the way of the dove."

"A decade after leading the country into Iraq and Afghanistan, Republicans have little appetite or energy for a strike aimed at punishing Bashar Assad for allegedly gassing his own people. To the contrary, many of the party's lawmakers are lining up to sink President Barack Obama's war authorization vote."
