The Trump Administration is now formally pushing for the overthrow of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, and it is using blatant false propaganda to finish the mission Obama spent the majority of his presidency attempting to carry out.
The same man who campaigned on calling out the United States’ hypocritical foreign policy, and putting an end to the failed pattern of regime change in the Middle East, is now doing exactly what Obama did, and exactly what Hillary Clinton would have done.
Aside from the fact that such an action would defy logic, there has been no investigation, and there is no evidence that this week’s chemical attack in Syria was carried out by the Syrian government.
We also don’t have proof that the side motivated to launch such an attack—i.e. one of the many rebel groups the U.S. has funded in previous attempts to overthrow Assad—is not responsible.
Trump claimed the chemical attack was bad because it killed “innocent children,” but he seems to have no regard for all of the innocent children his administration has killed using airstrikes…
Under the Trump Administration, airstrikes have escalated drastically in countries like Yemen, Iraq and Syria, and civilian deaths have paid the price.
Going to war without congressional approval is WRONG. Invading sovereign nations and overthrowing their leaders when they pose no direct threat to the U.S. is WRONG. The U.S. government and the mainstream media will sell the story that launching a war in Syria is for our safety, and to protect our freedom—when the opposite is true. The only thing created from invading countries, destabilizing regions and destroying families, is more of the terrorist the U.S. claimed to be against in the first place.
Now is the time to stand up and demand peace, and it starts with saying “NO” to war in Syria.
