Trump made an impulsive and irresponsible decision to go ahead and strike Syria with missiles. He was responding to the horrible chemical attack earlier this week, but according to experts in international relations, this move will not actually stop chemical warfare. Instead, this reactionary strike will make it harder for international coalitions to form to actually stop terrorism. And, it was an escalation tactic that will only make matters worse for those suffering the most: innocent Syrian civilians.
Sign to tell Trump: war is not the answer, stop bombing Syrian civilians!
After the 2013 chemical attacks in Syria, Donald Trump was pleading with Obama not to do exactly what he has now done.
While Donald Trump is bombing Syria -- supposedly out of concern for suffering children -- he is simultaneously refusing to let Syrian refugees into our country. This level of hypocrisy is sickening, especially when lives are at stake.

Human Rights Watch just reported that the US strike on Aleppo in March was illegal as there was not enough effort to minimize citizen casualties. War is still not the answer here! Share the petition.
