    Declaration Against the Expansion of the Syrian War

    We, the undersigned, hereby make public our resistance against President Donald Trump's announcement that he will, within the next hours or days, retaliate militarily against the sovereign state of Syria, with the argument that the Syrian government is guilty of the the use of chemical weapons against civilians in the Ghouta region on 8 April.

    Such a military retaliation is unjust because the purported gas attack has not yet even been sufficiently and carefully investigated by a neutral investigatory expert body. Since the facts are not yet even clear about who committed such a possible crime, how could we then already punish Syria?
    Such a military retaliation would also provoke a military response from Russia which has a military presence in Syria upon request from Syria itself in order to help the country free itself from ISIS and other rebel groups.

    Thus, a military intervention on the side of President Trump and his allies might very well provoke a war with Russia which could lead to a widening war involving Europe – to include Turkey – and other regions in the world.

    Following Just War Doctrine, we insist upon a fair investigation of the facts before entering a war. We remind President Trump of the principle of self-defense, which means that a country may only use military force against another sovereign country when it has been attacked by it. We insist upon prudence and truth. We refer our readers to an excellent statement written on 10 April by Patrick Buchanan.

    We ask the world leaders to do everything in their power to stop this cycle of civil and imperial wars.

    Some of us remember World War II and the effects on so many innocent civilians.

    Let us prevent another, potentially more disastrous world war.

  • Wikipedia (for better or for worse) says this about the petition website,

    Visibility of personal information
    Under certain conditions,[58][vague] signatures and other private information including email addresses can be found by search engines. operates a system for signature hiding, which works only if the user has an account on[59]
    Corporate structure
    There has been debate and criticism[60][61] around the fact that is a for-profit business despite using the .org domain suffix rather than the commercial .com. The site has been accused of fooling its users and hiding the fact that it is "a for-profit entity that has an economic incentive to get people to sign petitions".
    Quote is being deliberately deceitful through the use of the name. I'd suspect that the average user does not know that is a for-profit corporation, and that the corporation plans on using the contact information being provided to them to earn revenue.
    — spokesperson Charlotte Hill countered this criticism in a September 2013 article in Wired, saying, "We are a mission-driven social enterprise, and while we bring in revenue, we reinvest 100% of that revenue back into our mission of empowering ordinary people. It's not just that we’re not yet making a profit – it's that we are decidedly not for-profit." [62]
    Advertising policy
    In 2012, the site dropped most of the restrictions it previously placed on paid content. Internal documents began referring to "clients" and "partners" as "advertisers" and stated that "only advertisers strictly identified as 'hate groups' are to be barred."[63][64] As a result, was accused of encouraging astroturfing and abandoning the progressive user base from which it initially gained traction. Additional controversy arose when the employee who initially leaked the documents was fired.[64] Of the users who lost interest in the site after this change, a number of them expressed difficulty in being removed from mailing lists.[63]
    Selling of personal data has also been accused of selling the personal data provided by the users to third-party companies that hire its services, gaining money at the expense of the users.[61]
    Use for trending topics
    Topics for petitions have grown to include disagreement with the Academy Awards and removing milk from certain types of coffee.[65][66] The authors of these petitions have been criticized for focusing on first world problems.[67] Further debate over the content of petitions came in November 2014 when Martin Daubney called some of them "bizarre" and stated that the site was being used to promote censorship.[68] In response, the communication director John Coventry defended the wide range of petitions, saying that "people make an informed choice in what they want to support."[69] The following week saw criticism alleging that petitions about the media receive more attention than petitions about "saving 'actual' lives."[70]
