In the political environment of the war drums beating for new military action and the President himself admitting that “Mr. Assad doesn’t have a lot of capability”, and “He doesn’t have a credible means to threaten the United States.”, the Cherokee County Executive Committee voted unanimously in support of the SYRIAN ANTI-AGGRESSION RESOLUTION presented below on 9-9-13.
This resolution is not about President Obama. It is not in any way condoning horrors that are happening in the Syrian Civil War. It is simply stating, well, you can read that for yourselves.
SYRIAN ANTI-AGGRESSION RESOLUTION
WHEREAS, neither the government nor the people of Syria have acted in an aggressive manner towards the United States of America and;
WHEREAS, neither the government nor the people of Syria represent a clear and present danger to the United States of America and;
WHEREAS, neither the government nor the people of Syria represent a threat to the people of Oklahoma, specifically the citizens of Cherokee County, and;
WHEREAS, a preemptive military strike is an act of aggression against a sovereign state and people;
BE IT RESOLVED that the Executive Committee of the Cherokee County Republican Party believes that no military strike should be carried out against the Syrian people or government. Military strikes include soldiers on the ground, surface-to-surface missiles, surface-to-air missiles, air-to-surface missiles or anything else that can be construed as an act of war;
IT IS FURTHER RESOLVED that the Representatives of Cherokee County, Markwayne Mullin, United States House of Representatives; Tom Coburn, United States Senate; and James Inhofe, United States Senate, should take all necessary means to insure that no military action be taken by the United States military, the President of the United States or his agents.
