Note from Teknosis: I added the "Sentient / Sane Human Being part. Let's roll! Please share this out massive on FB, via email and beyond.

Dear SENTIENT/SANE HUMAN BEING,

Today, I will return to Washington for emergency hearings of the Senate Foreign Relation Committee, of which I am a member. 

We are told we will hear evidence from Obama administration officials of why we should engage our military in Syria.

I cannot imagine what they will say that could justify another war.

Our national interests are not at stake in Syria, and using our men and women in uniform to salvage the credibility of this administration would be a shocking misuse.

Next week, the full Senate will deliberate and vote on an authorization for military action. I will lead the opposition to try to stop this mistake from ever happening.

And it would be a grave mistake, one whose consequences we cannot even be sure of right now.

I am asking you to let your voice be heard this week and next.

You see, one of the major reason the constitution requires CONGRESS to send us to war is because the voice of the people can be heard clearly here. 

Let them hear your voice, and let them hear a resounding "NO" to war in Syria, as they weigh this important decision.

There are many reasons my colleagues could have for voting no, among them:

*** Our military would be joining the same side of this civil war as Al Qaeda. We cannot be sure who among the Syrian rebels are potential allies, and we know many of them are Islamic militants.

*** The hundreds of thousands of Christians in Syria would be in even more danger if the extremist rebels were to take over Syria.

*** There is no real military goal, and no clear sense of what victory is. Without that, our military should never be asked to risk their lives.

There certainly are more strong reasons to stay out of this civil war in Syria. And I will make sure my colleagues here them all this week and next, as I take to the Senate floor and to the airwaves to lead this fight.

But I am counting on you to back me up

Congress MUST hear from every American who doesn't want to see anyone's sons or daughters be the first to die for a mistake.

Congress MUST hear from every American who knows we can't be the world's policeman.

And Congress MUST hear from every American who would be sickened to know we were contemplating joining a war on the same side as Al Qaeda.

So let them hear you. 

No Syria War

Please sign this petition today to add your voice to mine and say "NO" to U.S. military action in Syria.


In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S.   American involvement in the Syrian conflict would only strengthen al-Qaeda terrorists. 

The president and Congress need to learn from history and pursue a Constitutional, common-sense foreign policy. One that does not needlessly endanger our brave men and women in uniform.

Please, add your name to this petition calling for Congress to reject Obama's request to take military action against Syria.

No Syria War

Syria chemical weapons attack, possibly link to Al-Qaida linked Nusra, in light of the facts

Lets get the facts here (and use LOGIC):

1 - August 21-22 Chemical Gas incident occurred just 12 Kilometers (8 miles) distance (So close) from the Presidential Palace in Capital Damascus at Ghouta suburbs of Capital.  

2 - On May 31st, 2013 Al-Qaida linked Nusra members who are fighting at the side of Syrian insurgents were arrested in Adana district of Turkey where Incirlik NATO instillations located with 2 liters of Sarin Nerve Gas in their possession as well as explosives ... LOGIC - So Syrian opposition Al-Qaida Link group clearly have 'proven' access to the Chemical Warfare Agents ..http://www.bidoluhaber.tv/el-nusra-adanayi-ucuraca... (Original news in Turkish Copy/Paste the link to Google translate) 

3 - UN Inspectors in Syria has not been given “official mandate to investigate and decide who is responsible” from this Chemical Gas attack, mandate is to confirm “Chemical Agent Use” .. LOGIC- So how can you determine Who is the Culprit of this heinous crime? 

4 - Since ultimatum so called 'red line' already given long ago to the Syrian Government NOT TO USE ANY CHEMICAL AGENTS AGAINST CIVILIANS and It seems illogical and suicidal behavior that the Syrian Government forces will dare to use Chemical Agents when whole world watching (UN inspectors already at the Hotel at Damascus) and just 8 miles away from the Presidential Palace at the Capital Damascus .  

Bottom line is 'Just get Wise ...Do not fool yourself with assumptions ....'

THE FACT IS : Who used the Chemical Agent in Damascus Syria ?

On May 30,2013 Adana district of Turkey where Incirlik NATO base located , police arrested Al-Qaida linked Nusra members fighting at the side of Syrian Opposition with 2 liters of Sarin as well as ammunition and explosives , police initially confirmed this Colorless and Odorless liquid as Sarin , but somehow later on local Government`s(called Vali) office claimed it is `Antifreeze ` ? which should be “green in color” rather than “clear” , as well as `other chemicals ` not identified the nature or purpose ... So the bottom line is `These guys involved with Chemical Agents` at the minimum and already confirmed ..Whether it is Sarin or other unknown similar purpose chemical does NOT itself change the FACT that these guys involved in Chemical Warfare Agent business ...
