Call your Rep TODAY: Vote ‘NO’ on Military Aid to Syrian ‘Rebels’

Preface from Washington’s Blog: It is now beyond dispute that the U.S. and its allies have armed ISIS and its allies.  That hasn’t worked out so well …

From Just Foreign Policy.

Congress is expected to vote soon on a controversial proposal to arm and train Syrian rebels. Both Democratic and Republican lawmakers have expressed opposition. With recent reports that some so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels this proposal seeks to arm have signed non-aggression pacts with ISIS, as in the past, now is not the time to rush into a policy whose consequences remain so unknown.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Progressive Caucus has introduced H. Con. Res. 114, demanding a robust debate and an authorization vote on any use of force. Sponsors so far include Reps. Grijalva, Ellison, Lee, McGovern, Defazio, Grayson, and Welch.

MoveOn, Win Without War, Peace Action and many other groups have called for a National Day of Action TODAY to say: stop the rush to war in Iraq & Syria!

Call your Representative NOW at (202) 224-3121. When you speak to a staffer (or leave a message), you can use the talking points below:

Hi, my name is ______, and I’m a constituent from _______.

I urge you to vote “NO” on expanding military aid to rebel groups in Syria. More weapons to groups we don’t know, who may use them against us or our allies in the future, will only make the situation worse.

I also urge you to co-sponsor H. Con. Res. 114, demanding a debate and an authorization vote on any use of force and the prohibition of the use of ground troops.

    This is crazy. Obama is a Sunni. He was raised a Sunni until He was 12 when He moved to Hawaii and became a Christian supposedly? Syria and Iran are Shia and Obama won’t let them in or help them. Because He is a Sunni. There are no moderate Mazlems..
    Want to know more then watch “Avi Lipkin”” on YouTube. Obama supports his brothers the Sunni’s.
    “Kill all the Jews on Saturday and kill all the Christian’s on Sunday, someday. Our God is Greater” is what the Mazlems will say. Ask them? Wake Up America, Wake Up Christian’s before the Mazlems kill you all!
