Stop the War Machine. A Petition for Peace

Messages Sent So Far
The U.S. has escalated threats of military intervention against both Iran and Syria and has placed harsher sanctions on both countries. The U.S. government needs to hear that the people do not want new wars.

We have a responsibility as Americans to try to stop all forms of U.S. aggression around the globe. We the people will be ready to protest if the U.S. or one of its proxies such as Israel or NATO attack Iran or Syria.

There is a covert, ?shadow? war being waged against Iran by U.S. and Israeli forces. The U.S. is sending additional military forces to the region. The threats against Iran are in the name of ?stopping nuclear proliferation.?

We learned from the sanctions on Iraq after the Persian Gulf War that sanctions kill and target the most vulnerable members of society?particularly the elderly and children. More people were killed by U.S. sanctions on Iraq than in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII. It is imperative that we see sanctions as a deadly form of warfare on the civilian population. If the government doesn?t want the country of Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons then it should work to build a peaceful relationship with Iran, instead of threatening it, attacking it?s scientists, and sending in troops into neighboring countries like Israel.

The U.S. government is the only nation to have used atomic weapons in war. After 10 years of continuous wars and military interventions conducted on the basis of lies, and misinformation, with the deaths of untold thousands of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, the warmakers in Washington have lost all credibility to lecture other nations about human rights.

Events in Iraq has proven that bombs don?t bring about democracy, freedom or security. Instead, the Iraqis are forced to endure a puppet government that awards profitable concessions to U.S. corporations.

The people of Syria and Iran should determine their own political future. The U.S. does not have the right to decide who is fit to rule and should not use its military to force a government more accepting of U.S. imperialism or corporate interests into power.

We want to stop these wars BEFORE they start. Please stop supporting sanctions and war threats.

On this day, we recognize that millions of people are without jobs and housing, yet billions are spent on U.S. wars around the world. People need jobs, housing and health care, not more wars.

The Citizenry of this Country are tired of these costly wars, and see the same rhetoric that lead to the very costly mistake that was the Iraq invasion in 2003. We do not give the Congress our vote of confidence to engage in further military action in Iran, and we do give our vote of confidence for more diplomacy, negotiation and cooperation with Iran and all of the Middle East to work towards Peace.

Trump has shown that he too is a puppet. We need to quit the CIA false flags in Syria. Assad is not harming his people. Don't believe the lies! Quit bombing sovereign nations

Please stop this madness before it's too late. No more wars. No more hatred. No more pain and suffering. And lastly don't start both a second civil war and the second great depression. This is not helping everybody, it's harming us as I write. War does more harm in the environment, the economy, the county's diversity, and humans' life. I have a terrible nightmare that our world fell into ruins and what I saw is our president, alone with no people around him, both the antis and the pros are wiped out because he put hate into both sides and end up killing each other after the third world war. No matter how hard he tries to stop the madness, it will contunes until the last anti and pro dies. Please find the compermise before it's too late for all of us both the right-wing and the left-wing.

War is not why we voted for Trump; and I did vote for Trump; we voted for Trump because we wanted improved relations with Russia , not WWIII, it's common knowledge that Assad allowed US to dismantle and remove chemical weapons and the capability to produce them in 2014; the US Navy verified that chemical weapons were removed and destroyed on a naval ship; Assad is not our enemy, ISIS is; do you really think you'll have time to go into underground bunkers if you allow WWIII to start? Is destruction and radiation the legacy you leave your grandchuldren, if they survive?
