Congress, Return to Session Immediately and Vote to End the U.S. War in Syria and Iraq.

Petition Text

We the undersigned citizens of the United States do hereby petition the Congress of the United States to return into session immediately and vote to end and forbid U.S. war in Syria and Iraq.

Why is this important?

1. The U.S. government is in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

2. Many U.S. citizens want Congress to do its job, debate war powers and vote no to this illegal war.

3. If Congress voted Yes they would be violating the UN Charter and the Kellogg-Briand Pact.

4. It is immoral to wait months while innocent people are being killed, laws broken, and hundreds of thousands of people displaced.

5. There are alternatives: pursue a ceasefire and negotiations, an arms embargo, work through the United Nations and the Arab League and provide humanitarian aid.

6. America should not let terrorists make us violate our own laws.

How it will be delivered

Please share this petition with friends, organizations, and social media.

Reasons for signing

  • Today is final vote to remove Trump and Jared Kushner and Mitch McConnell out of the Oval Office and Capital Hill. Five detainees have been cleared for release in a process involving six separate US intelligence agencies, yet they remain at the prison. Why? Because President Trump simply refuses to let anyone leave Guantánamo under his watch. Thanks Keshav for signing Draft Hillary Clinton for the 2020 Democratic Nomination for President
  • We are making the middle east and the world worst by our actions. Our allies are our enemies. There is no logical plan in place to stop ISIS and our allies support ISIS and take out the good guys like the Kurds.
  • Remember how awful 9/11 was for us? It's like that there all the time. I don't want to be a part of it. We are not the worlds police. we may never be able to end war, but we can damn well let them know we don't want it.
