U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Bowling Green says he was less than convinced by President Obama's prime time speech on Syria Tuesday night.
Senator Paul says the President failed to lay out a compelling argument that action was needed to protect America's national security interests.
Furthermore, Senator Paul doubts that President Obama would be able to keep his promise that no ground troops would be involved in the proposed limited strikes.
The Republican lawmaker says the decision to oppose military strikes is personal to him, as he doesn't see justification to put more men and women in harm's way.
Senator Paul says a strike against Syria's president may strengthen the hand of people who are no better.
