President Obama: Demand the immediate resignation of Bashar al-Assad TODAY

    1. Petition by

      Syrian American Council

In 1982, 20,000 people were ruthlessly killed under Hafez Assad's rule, and the world remained silent. Bashar Assad is intent on doing the same, and if the world does not speak up, a massacre of peaceful protestors is inevitable.

    5. Assad has demolished Hama, and is proud of it. Where are you Obama?

      The restrained statements from the US administration did not stop Assad from killing hundreds in the streets, and demolishing the city. The Assad regime is not hiding anything, proudly broadcasting the destruction it wrought. Yet Obama is silent.

      I served 30+ years in the US military and retired as an E9. I'm a combat veteran and have fought to maintain this countries freedom. As a Christian, I am appalled that my country has remained virtually silent while Assad massacres his own people. All the Syrian people are asking for is that we take a very strong stand denouncing the regimes legitimacy and apply sanctions to Assad and his cronies. Freedom is the cornerstone of our Constitution. Let's quit procrastinating and lend our support to the peaceful freedom demonstrators. Assad MUST step down NOW!!!
