I just posted this email to President Obama at the White House:
September 1, 2013
Dear President Obama,
I plead with you NOT to conduct any military retaliation on Syria about their gassing their own citizens. As repugnant and morally outrageous as that reprehensible act is, I highly and emphatically urge you to investigate non-military sanctions, diplomatic measures, and organize a united front of ALL nations, Arab and non-Arab alike, standing together to fight this inexcusable behavior. We need to have Syria come to terms with their abuse, and vow never to use this method again, or else an international watchdog, with certain, set measures for enforcement, will take steps to prevent these kinds of acts. You cannot prevent violence with more violence. Peace is not only the way, it is the only way.
Thank you for your service to our beloved country.
Santa Monica, CA
