Some Members of Congress have criticized President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria. That’s shocking, because most Americans don’t believe that the U.S. military belongs in Syria indefinitely and would like to get U.S. forces out of Syria as quickly as possible.
 
What’s even more shocking is that much of the criticism is that President Trump is purportedly abandoning military missions like “confronting Iran,” “confronting Russia,” and “confronting Turkey” that have never been authorized by Congress and are therefore unconstitutional. If these Members of Congress think these military missions are so wonderful, they should have the courage to put an authorization of military force on the floor and try to get majority support, not advocate for unconstitutional war.  
 
California Democrat Ted Lieu, on the other hand, advocates a principled position: he praised the announcement.
 
The Hill reported:
 
"I applaud the decision by @realDonaldTrump to withdraw US troops from Syria," Lieu tweeted several hours after the official White House announcement emerged. "Neither the Obama Administration nor the Trump Administration had a strategy," Lieu added. "Neither Administration could articulate why we were in Syria, what the end state would be, and how we would achieve it."
 
Urge your Senators and Representative to stand with Ted Lieu for ending the war by signing our petition.
