KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --  A Small protest with fewer than a dozen protestors was held in Bronson Park opposing U.S. intervention in Syria. 

They protested on the same day that President Obama announced that he would be seeking the advice and council of Congress before launching any attacks.

While the protesters say they are shocked by what appears to be the use of chemical warfare in that country, they say dropping bombs on the situation will not be an improvement. 

They say there are enough problems here at home to be addressed without sticking our nose into the fight between what appears to be a corrupt secular dictatorship, and the Muslim and al Qaida forces that are trying to turn him out. 

  They say neither are our friends.
