Congress: Debate & Vote Before War with Russia or Syria

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Congress must debate and approve or reject an authorization for the use of military force before the U.S. takes military action against Russian or Syrian military forces in Syria.
There are currently 6,770 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

Some members of Congress are calling for U.S. military action against Russian and/or Syrian military forces in Syria. [1]

Under the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution, such U.S. military actions must not occur without a prior vote by Congress to explicitly authorize them. Members of Congress who want the U.S. to take military action against Russian or Syrian military forces in Syria should introduce an authorization for the use of military force to enable these actions so that the proposed military actions can be publicly debated and critiqued before plunging the U.S. into yet another war.

Urge your Senators and Representative to insist that Congress debate and vote on an authorization for the use of military force before any U.S. military action against Russian or Syrian forces by signing our petition.
