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.

    Stop the “continuing war” philosophy ! The US government upports the armaments industry and contract troops, while sucking the American people and economy dry.

    First off we don’t belong there. Second like I said when I called the white house last year to complain,, most of the rebel fighters are Al-Qaeda. You will send our troops to their deaths because they will have a target on their fronts AND THEIR BACKS. Third,,, it is against International laws to attack another country for regime change. No matter how you try to spin it you are doing just that.

    Mr. President: it is time to meet those campaign promised to end the wars the US is making in the Middle East. It is time to use the trillions of taxpayers money to benefit American citizens.

    Leave the Syrians aone and stop the devestation of their country and the killing of its people.

    It is time… act as a human being and not as a barbarian.
