Our Oregon Representatives in Congress need to hear from us about Syria. The Oregon Progressive Party offers this statement against the use of U.S. military force in Syria.
Please contact your representatives in Congress with your views; feel free to send them this statement. Their contact information is at the bottom of this message.
Please support peaceful diplomatic solutions
and VOTE NO on any authorizations for U.S. military strikes on Syria.
History clearly guides us us to the course of action the United States must take in Syria. Only peaceful diplomacy will rid Syria, and the greater Middle East, of weapons of mass destruction in all its forms.
The use of U.S. military force is no solution for assisting the Syrian people to free themselves from tyranny and begin to build democracy. We are told military strikes will be extremely limited and involve no long term commitments or U.S. ground troops, but "limited wars" often escalate, since the U.S. can never "cut and run."
