ACTION ALERT for Tuesday, September 16
National Call-In Day
Call your Senators and Representatives TODAY before they support another endless war in the Middle East!
As early as today, Congress is going to vote on a controversial plan to send arms to Syrian rebels.
Toll-free number: 1-855-68 NO WAR (1-855-686-6927).
Let them know:
* You are opposed to providing arms to Syrian rebels.
* You are opposed to US military intervention in Iraq and Syria
* You favor diplomacy and humanitarian aid as the only realistic approach to the threat of ISIS.
Ask for an explanation of where your member of Congress stands on the President’s plan “to destroy ISIS” through military means.
In the past six weeks, America has flown nearly 3,000 missions, deployed more than 1,500 troops, and launched more than 150 airstrikes in Iraq. Just last week, the President announced that our latest war in the Middle East will be ramping up, with increased airstrikes in Iraq and soon also in Syria.
U.S. airstrikes will not solve the problems we face in Iraq and Syria. Over the past 13 years, we have seen how the unintended consequences of military action can spiral out of control. U.S. bombs, and the civilian deaths they cause, often serve as recruitment tools for groups like ISIS. American supplied weapons have already fallen into the hands of violent extremists.
