Oppose Syria "No Fly Zone"

Congress should stand with President Obama and Senator Bernie Sanders in opposition to Hillary Clinton and Republicans calling for a “no-fly zone” in Syria.

Why is this important?

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is joining with Republican warmongers like Carly Fiorina to call for the U.S. to impose a “no-fly zone” in Syria. Despite the innocuous-sounding name, these proposals for a “no-fly zone” are proposals for dangerous U.S. military escalation against Russia, Iran, and the Syrian government. [1]

President Obama has rightly called Republican proposals for “no-fly zones” and “humanitarian corridors” in Syria “half-baked” “mumbo jumbo.” [2]

Senator Bernie Sanders is standing with President Obama and against Hillary Clinton in opposition to these “half-baked” proposals for military escalation. “We must be very careful about not making a complex and dangerous situation in Syria even worse,” Sanders said, warning that a no-fly zone in Syria "could get us more deeply involved in that horrible civil war and lead to a never-ending U.S. entanglement in that region.” [3]
