Help Us Promote Alternatives to U.S. Airstrikes in Iraq

President Obama unveiled his strategy for confronting the violent extremists of ISIS on Wednesday: an additional 475 troops (bringing the total in Iraq to around 1,600) and an expansion of airstrikes.

American bombs cannot eliminate the threat of ISIS and will likely make the conflicts in Iraq and Syria worse. Fortunately, we have alternatives, and, while they lack the immediacy of bombing, they are ultimately far more effective in keeping America safe, protecting innocent lives and crippling violent extremists.

Write a letter to the editor to remind the President and our communities: there are non-military ways to combat ISIS.

There are alternatives to bombing ISIS in Iraq and Syria that are largely absent in the political debate. The alternatives require the U.S. to replace military action with a real international diplomatic response that will provide the political power, economic incentives and support for rebuilding a non-sectarian Iraq and ending the Syrian war. 

Call on President Obama and Congress to seek non-military solutions to the regional crisis in Iraq and Syria.

Instead of going back to war in the Middle East, President Obama should have announced more effective ways to degrade ISIS. You can read our full analysis on non-military ways to combat ISIS on our website.

Please write a letter to the editor to call for political solutions, not more airstrikes.
