No More Troops to Syria!

In September 2014, President Obama reassured the world that "I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria," saying the move would be a "profound mistake." He made this promise 15 more times to the American people, yet just a few days ago the President announced the deployment of 250 troops to Syria indefinitely.  

The American people are now expected to foot an astounding $375 million bill just to train the 250 Special Forces troops headed to Syria. The U.S. government should spend fewer resources on ground forces, and more on supporting peace talks and providing humanitarian assistance to the millions of Syrian people who are besieged, internally displaced, or refugees in other countries.

We the undersigned call on President Obama to keep his promise not to send troops into Syria and instead use diplomacy and peaceful processes to help bring the civil war to an end. Additionally, we ask that the $375 million that would have been used to further violence and war in Syria instead be used to provide aid for the millions of Syrians who have been displaced or sought refuge in other countries.

    After many times telling the American people that there would be no more boots on the ground in Syria, wouldn’t it be a good idea to stick to that, for once? Or wasn’t it a promise, in the first place?

    Our country needs to welcome refugees and support their needs wherever they are, not prolong Syria’s agony.
