Say NO to prolonging the Syrian bloodbath

I told Congress to stop arming Syrian rebels using DownsizeDC.org's Stop Policing the World campaign.

 

Please do the same. You can copy or edit this letter…

 

Policing the world means meddling in places we know nothing about.

 

For instance…

 

Obama wants ME to fund Syrian “moderates” to fight BOTH the Assad regime AND ISIS in a 3-sided war.

 

But who are the moderates?

 

Ryan C. Crocker, former ambassador to BOTH Iraq AND Syria, says we “don't have a clue” who the non-ISIS opposition is. (http://nyti.ms/1BC2Tc9 )

 

If HE can't name “moderates” among the rebels…

 

WHO CAN?

 

Won’t arms we send to our favorite rebels end up in ISIS’s hands, as they have in the past?

 

And what will my tax dollars accomplish except extend the bloodbath that is killing women, children, and religious minorities in Syria?

 

If YOU are so inclined, send YOUR OWN money to whatever rebel group you favor. Better yet, resign and volunteer to fight with them.

 

Obama should, too.

 

But this isn't MY fight.

 

And it isn't America's fight.
