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.

    The only goal we should have in Syria is to end displacement of people and creation of refugees

    The last thing this country needs is to be actively engaged in more wars. Our interference does not always have a positive outcome and, at this point in history, the Syrian refugees are much more in need of the money that would be spent on war. It’s well past time that we learn from our mistakes. War is NOT the answer!!

    You can’t kill your way to peace! The more we intervene and weaponize the middle east, the more hatred and violence we create. It’s failed over & over – why would an intelligent person keep repeating the same mistakes?
