We suggest short brief messages so that they will be read quickly.
Suggested Messages: (feel free to cut and paste and edit)
1. Assad is clearly not a reformer. He has squandered every chance we have given him. He is a ruthless dictator and is willing to kill, torture, and rape thousands of civilians to cling on to power. We have to be tougher on Assad and call him illegitimate and ask him to go.
2. Our silence on Assad is compromising the United States reputation around the world. People look to the United States for leadership, not followership. We need to be firmer and stand with the people of Syria against this brutal, repressive, dictatorship that is killing thousands of people. We need to be consistent on democracy and freedom.
3. Assad is destabilizing the entire Middle East and another Kosovo, Hama, and Rwanda is happening in front of our eyes. Gadaffi merely threatened to massacre his own people and we acted quickly. Assad is actually massacring his own people and we are simply watching.
4. Assad is illegitimate and is torturing thousands of people including women and children. How much more time are we going to give him? This is unacceptable from a world leader and super power. Shame on us.
5. Our sanctions against Assad's friends and inner circle have not worked at causing internal dissention and internal strife. We need a stronger stance and need to act more decisively. Our policy is discombobulated and defies logic. Please stand with the people of Syria who just want freedom.
6. We act quickly and decisively against a friend of the United States in Mubarak and ask him to step down, but we give a sworn enemy all the time in the world to kill innocent civilians? I can't reconcile our hypocritical stance on these two situations. We need to tell Assad to step aside quickly.
7. Being on the "right side of history" means acting quickly, decisively and leading world opinion. Not waiting to see who wins and siding with them. That is abhorrant. We need to stand with the freedom demonstrators in Syria enough is enough.
8. Assad's clan has had 5 decades to reform. They are not going to reform. It's time to move on. The sooner the better. Please push Assad out!
