Hands Off Syria, Don\'t Bomb Syria

Messages Sent So Far
I call upon President Obama and the Congress to use restraint and balanced approach before rushing to the use of force that will result in further loss of Syrian lives and more destruction. I urge the president and the congress to heed the overwhelmingly negative polls on this matter, domestically as well as across the globe.
It is no secret that many of the insurgents fighting the Syrian government have been terrorist organizations affiliated with Al Qaeda, some of which officially labeled by the administration as such. The U.S. should not be fighting on the same side of Al Qaeda, no matter what our objectives might be. The administration shall remember, ?the enemy of our enemy is still our worst enemy?. Any bombing campaign of Syria is likely to cause the death of more innocents, will embolden these staunch enemies of the US in Syria, escalate their campaign and draw the US deeper into the Syrian conflict, thus directly threatening our citizens and soldiers as they did in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. I urge the administration and congress to look deeper into the allegations of use of chemical weapons, not just rely on foreign intelligence services.
I stand with the Administration in its affirmation for a political, not military, solution to the Syrian crisis. The Syrian people are looking for the United States to assume its leadership role to bring all parties to Geneva 2 to reach a just, peaceful, and lasting resolution for a democratic and secular Syria. To that extent, we urge the administration to use its political weight with all parties to come to the negotiating table.

Bombing Syria will only achieve exactly what the terrorists want; namely, for the US to engage in expensive lengthy wars that cannot be measurably won and that cause more deaths to innocent Syrians and turn all parties involved into terrorists. I do not support bombing Syria or anyone for that matter. Do not stoop to the terrorists level, you are giving them exactly what they set out to get.

Syria is capable of doing it's own airstrikes on ISIS. No need for the US to illegally break Syrian air space.

Wars are being made in nearly every Arab country, and most of us ask, "Why?" Syria is the country of my father's origin. There should be no more wars.
