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.

    Let’s get out of this Moslem quagmire. We here in the USA have enough problems of our own and, as it seems, no money to fix them. Ask yourself – is this interference in the Middle East, which their own people have created, in our best interest?

    US troops on the ground in Syria is short-sighted and an affront to your legacy.

    Once again I am made aware that the politicians in this country including President Obama once elected are doing absolutely nothing to help the American taxpayer. I am disgusted that he stands for nothing and rather than putting our country first he is bought and sold. We do not want or need another war to fund and once again we have been put on the backburner while our defense contractors and the CIA are destabilizing the Middle East. It is extremely distressing to me all the pain and suffering endured in Syria all because of greed. I am well aware that the opinions of people like me are never listened to but I will always stand up for the voiceless and the disenfranchised!
