Resolution Against Deployment Of U.S. Troops In Syria Without Congressional Approval

 

Resolution 13-07.26

 

WHEREAS, amidst reported use of chemical weapons and a soaring number of casualties, Syria's long-running civil war has increasingly commanded the attention and involvement of this administration and allied nations; and

WHEREAS, the framers of the Constitution clearly delineated the powers of declaring and waging war, between the executive and legislative branches of government; and

WHERAS, President Obama is being urged to intervene in Syria, and such intervention would inevitably place more American lives at risk;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party opposes any deployment of troops to Syria or the conflicted region for purposes of war or peacekeeping without explicit approval and consent of the Congress of the United States.
