[SDCPJ] On Syria

Attack Syria?  NO
 
The San Diego Coalition for Peace & Justice (www.sdcpj.org) opposes United States military intervention or involvement in Syria.  Here's why: 
 
The U.S. problem with Syria is not Syria, it is the U.S.
 
U.S. military interventions around the world, notably in the Americas and the Middle East, have always been rationalized by humanitarian arguments. But inevitably and almost universally, these interventions have actually been motivated by dreams of global power and war profiteering. 
 
The reality of U.S. military interventions, beyond abhorrent profits by corporate war contractors and munitions vendors, has been failure of humanitarian objectives; and worse outcomes for the citizens of the invaded nations including the cost of countless human lives.  The "positive" outcome of war profiteering has been at the cost of the U.S. taxpayer. 
 
The United States, thanks to the military adventurism of the last decade-plus, has had its reputation reinforced as hated invader and occupier.  This includes the effect of the global drone wars.  Any U.S. military intervention in Syria will not only not resolve that nation's internal divisions – it will, as our military invasions have done, make things worse.  Worse for the Syrians – and worse for the U.S.  And again, who will profit? 
 
The San Diego Coalition for Peace & Justice opposes any U.S. military direct or indirect entrance into the Syrian conflict.  Our national experience shows that war breeds war, and death breeds death. U.S. military adventurism breeds both, and a deepened earned hatred of the U.S.  No good can come of this.
