No U.S. War in the Philippines

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Reject proposals for U.S. intervention in the Philippines.

The Pentagon is considering a proposal to begin airstrikes in the Philippines in order to fight ISIS, according to leaks from defense officials. According to two Pentagon insiders cited by MSNBC, the airstrikes would be carried out by unmanned drones, which have been widely condemned by human rights groups. According to Amnesty International, drones already have an extensive history of causing massive collateral damage to civilians, “some of which could amount to war crimes or extrajudicial executions.”

The U.S. is already involved in conflicts in at least six countries, though President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to roll back American intervention in foreign wars. If his administration approves intervention in the Philippines, it will represent yet another broken campaign promise. If you believe the U.S. can do without another war, sign this petition demanding Trump stay out of the Philippines.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

On the campaign trail, you promised an end to the era of endless war. Now, your administration is considering bringing the United States into a seventh conflict by beginning a drone war in the Philippines. The U.S. is already actively involved in conflicts in countries ranging from Iraq to Pakistan, Syria to Somalia.

Clearly the situation in the Philippines is complicated, with government forces battling a plethora of rebel groups in the south. However, contrary to your campaign promise, the U.S. still has plenty of wars on its plate, and there’s no need for yet another. We therefore demand you publicly reject any calls for U.S. drone strikes in the Philippines and commit to promoting peace instead of more violence and suffering.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Seriously, I’ve lost track of how many countries Trump has threatened war against. Does he even know what he’s doing?!
