Stand with us in condemning US aggression. War is NOT the answer!
Friday night at 9 pm EST, Trump ordered an unauthorized, strategy-free, dangerous strike on Syria. It wasn’t a bait and switch. It’s not 12-dimensional chess. He’s not outfoxing anyone. With this strike, Trump is transparently gambling with the safety of the Syrian people, and pulling us closer to war with Russia and Iran, to distract from his own legal troubles. The strike comes just days after horrific images out of Syria showed yet another apparent deadly chemical attack from the Assad regime on the people of Syria. In the face of events like that, the instinct to want to “do something” which is understandable but Trump has no real interest in the safety of the Syrian people.
The US has only accepted 11 Syrian refugees this year. and strikes put Syrians in greater risk of harm by escalating war and bloodshed. Trump’s message to the Syrian people? Stay there, we’ll bomb you. Come here, we’ll ban you. Trump clearly has zero respect for the people of Syria, as his actions have put them at greater risk. We know he has zero respect for the rule of law, since these strikes are unconstitutional absent congressional authority. He also has zero strategy, evidenced by his Administration’s failure to articulate just how these strikes address the chemical weapons attack and what the plan is from here. This is unacceptable! If you agree, join us at the NW Corner of Main St and Lexington in High Point and bring a sign!
