DEADLINE: Today — Noon

Please join me in sending this urgent message to the President to focus on achieving peace rather than escalating the war in Syria through U.S. military attacks that would result in more death, destruction, and suffering.

With 500,000 deaths, 5.4 million refugees who have fled the country, 6.1 million who have become internally displaced, and millions more in need of assistance, the Syrian people desperately want peace — not an escalation of war by the U.S. military.

I urge you to join me in sending this message to the President calling for peace. To join this letter, please contact Guido Weiss at
guido.weiss@mail.house.gov

Sincerely, 

Tulsi Gabbard

Member of Congress

LETTER TEXT: 

Dear President Trump:

The people of Syria want peace more than anything else in the world.  Attacking Syria will not bring their war-torn country any closer to peace. U.S. military action against Syria will simply escalate and prolong the war, resulting in more senseless death,
destruction, and suffering.  

A U.S. military attack against Syria will certainly reinvigorate and resurrect the terrorizing forces of jihad and increase the flow of refugees into Europe and the United States.

If you are truly concerned about the suffering of the Syrian people, then you must do all you can to bring about peace.  A U.S. military attack against Syria will expand and escalate this war, increasing their suffering and causing more death, more
refugees, and fewer resources to invest in rebuilding our own communities right here at home.

Here is the bottom line: If our desire is for peace and stability in Syria and to mitigate the suffering of the Syrian people so they can begin to rebuild their homes and communities and enable refugees who have left Syria to return home, then we should
work for peace, rather than expanding and escalating the war through a military attack against Syria.

We, the undersigned, call upon you to resist the loud calls of war and instead wield the power of the Presidency to help bring peace to the people of Syria, their devastated country, and the region.  

Sincerely,
