Halt attacks on Syria until chemical attack responsibility is proven beyond doubt.

President Trump ran on a platform of peace. In his final speech he stated "Isn't it time to end these wars once and for all?". The interventionists unwisely destroyed Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan. The same attitude was brought in Syria, and weapons were widely distributed to destroy, again, the cradle of civilization, under the motivation of humanitarianism. However this has simple led to mass suffering. Changing countries to be more "like us" through externally funded violence has a very dismal track record, whereas engagement, diplomacy and peaceful protest seldom create mass destruction and suffering.

The chemical release in Idlib should not be used to justify attacking Syria, unless it can be absolutely verified who is responsible. It makes no sense for the Syrian Government to use gas at this time, as they fear American and Western attack and have rolled back the advances of the foreign backed fighters of ISIS and Al Nusra.

The proof cannot come from a panel of experts who are biased. It must come from an investigation that includes Western, Russian and Chinese investigators.

The American people do not want to be responsible for raining down destruction on defenseless nations to further the agendas of warlike elements in our leadership who will use the flimsiest evidence to justify mass destruction, as was done in Iraq, Libya and Vietnam, all based on lies.
