The Syrian Coalition calls upon members of the U.S. Congress to make the right choice and support the administration’s efforts to stop the Assad killing machine.
Dictatorships like Iran and North Korea are watching closely to see how the free world responds to the Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people. If the free world fails to respond to such an outrageous breach of international norms, dictators around the world will be encouraged in their efforts to follow the example set by Assad.
The international community’s inaction during the past 30 months allowed the regime to escalate the conflict to a point where it thought it could use chemical weapons with impunity. These actions show it does not believe in perusing a political solution.
The Syrian Coalition believes any possible military action should be carried out in conjunction with an effort to arm the Free Syrian Army (FSA). This will be vital in restraining Assad and ending the killing and chaos he wants to spread throughout the region.
The Syrian people want to build a democratic pluralistic state that achieves their aspirations for freedom and peace. However, during the past two and a half years, the democratic world has offered only condolences and promises whilst Assad’s regime, supported by its allies in Iran and Russia, has been busy killing Syria’s democratic hopes.
The Syrian Coalition, as a representative of the Syrian people, has a duty to end the rule of Assad’s regime. The Syrian people will not quickly forgive Assad being given more time to butcher them and destroy their country.
Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
