Congress: Oppose Illegal War in Syria

Rebuke President Trump for illegally attacking Syria. Invoke the War Powers Resolution to compel withdrawal of U.S. forces from unauthorized conflict.

Why is this important?

President Trump has attacked Syria without Congressional authorization, violating the U.S. Constitution. Congress must assert its war powers, invoking the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution.

Congress must insist that no further attacks take place without Congressional authorization and that U.S. forces be withdrawn from unauthorized conflict. Congress must invoke the War Powers Resolution to debate and vote on a privileged resolution for the withdrawal of U.S. forces if President Trump refuses to remove U.S. forces from the conflict.

Urge your Senators and Representative to invoke the War Powers Resolution to compel withdrawal of U.S. forces from the conflict by signing our petition.

Reasons for signing

  • We raised 2 children fathered by American soldiers in the Vietnam War (and the Vietnamese of course call it the American War which is more accurate). One of these kids has never recovered from the trauma. Since Vietnam, we have been involved in endless wars. I am so ashamed of this country.
  • Only Congress has the power to declare war!!!
  • Another Endless War For Minerals Of Another Country;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
