United States and Russian governments: Stop abetting the violence in Syria

    1. Petition by

      Sami Jarjour

      Columbus, GA

In order to bring about a peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict, both sides involved must agree to a ceasefire and agree to pursue further negotiations to bring about constructive and successful political reform in Syria. The US and Russian governments must pressure the two parties to go to the negotiating table rather than supplying them with arms and other means of assistance to violently combat each other in an already very costly conflict.

      'The Obama administration has for now abandoned efforts for a diplomatic settlement to the conflict in Syria, and instead it is increasing aid to the rebels and redoubling efforts to rally a coalition of like-minded countries to forcibly bring down the government of President Bashar al-Assad, American officials say.'

      The government does not intervene in the name of Freedom and Democracy. They lie both to the public, but may be worse, to the brave American soldiers who die there. The stability and balance of powers in the region does not call for military intervention. In addition, a small number of companies make business on the war, which is morally utterly inacceptable.

      Enough bombing has been done where innocent people cannot escape dying, it s been too many intervention in this last decades. Everything can be solved by negocialtoons and talks. We just need the goodwilled politicians.

      There are too many innocent people suffering, especially children and families. Too much bloodshed already.

      If this continues and we interfere, we are doomed. We will be supplying people with arms and the like that WILL BE used against us in the future. If Saudi Arabia wants to help, let them do it directly instead of "using" the U.S.
