(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- A long-time supporter of the military is coming out against the U-S lead in the no-fly zone in Libya. North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones said the move is not in this country's best interest.

"I'm actually on Ron Paul's legislation that he intends to introduce that says that America should not take the lead on no-fly zones unless they come to Congress and ask permission. I just don't want to see America take the lead on anything dealing with Libya.  I think it's fine if we want to encourage other countries but for this country to get involved is absolutely unacceptable," said Jones.

He added that he has written letters to too many families who have lost loved ones in combat, to support getting involved in another conflict overseas.
