We do not consent to war with Syria President ObamaSubmitted by LUI_the_LIBERATOR on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 14:19
Hello everyone, there is a petition on WhiteHouse.gov that is building momentum and I'd thought I'd share it with you all. Congress may not be in session, but President Obama will notice a petition with 100,000 signatures of people who are denouncing aggressive action towards Syria.
"The American people do not want the United States to go to war in Syria. There are no American interests being threatened in Syria. Syria has not attacked the United States, nor American citizens, nor has Syria attacked United States armed forces personnel. There has been no Congressional declaration of war. There has been no United Nations Security Council resolution authorizing the use of force in Syria. To go to war in Syria at this time would be illegal and unconstitutional. To go to war in Syria at this time would be criminal under international law, the crime of aggression. The President of the United States is not authorized under law to declare war on his own. If the President will decide to go to war without a declaration of war from Congress, that would be an impeachable offense."
