Save Syrians

Barry, My Liege :

It is time for the United States of America to do some real good.

It is time to provide humanitarian assistance to nearly two million Syrian refugees, of which about half are children under age 13.

If we bomb Syria we will kill a few people, but the stream of refugees will continue fleeing the country at the rate of 10,000 per day.

We should be ashamed for considering bombs instead of real help.

The only way we can help Syrians with bombs is to kill Assad, but even if we succeed in doing that, there will be two million desperate people who need real help.

When we help Syrian refugees, we will be thumbing our nose at Assad by countering his evil with good.

We should provide assistance at the ground level - not the government to government help which can degenerate into bribery and corruption.

But, we should offer assistance without asking for credit.

Just do it.


Send our food, water, medical supplies, sanitation workers, tents and HOPE to the victims.

Here's where they are per UNHCR in July:

Total Syrian refugee population:

1,750,075 estimated

Bombing Syria

Barry, My Liege :

Controlling Syria is not like arresting a street gang.

Bombing Assad does not create respect.

NOBODY doubts that POTUS has power and uses it.

It is time to show some maturity and consider the reality of bombing Syria.

Will it control chemical weapons?

Don't be stupid.

Will Assad feel 'punished'?

No one cares about that.

The only possible good that can come is to kill Assad AND ALSO install a coalition of international troops with the power to control the Al Queda and Muslim Brotherhood troops there already and restore stability.

Can we do that?


We have zero good options here.

Stay out.

Your faithful servant,
