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

From Just Foreign Policy:

Congress is expected to vote in the next few days 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.

  1. I've previously called and written to my congressman (Shuster) and senators (Casey and Toomey) and have received the usual thanks for writing responses. But, IMO, it does no good. Unless masses of people are willing to go to the streets to protest (and they will not do so without a military draft), it doesn't matter much how many letters are written. Little will change by voting these people out as there is no effective third party to combat the monopoly of the POB (that's the way they like it).

    1. Just as I thought. Both sides of the aisle in the House voted today to fund our "good rebels" LOL. It really matters not how many calls we make and letters we write. We are still the minority and they know it. IMO, it's better to be a defeatist,, that way you're not disappointed.
