To the Government of the United States of America:
I am asking my American government to stop supporting terrorists in Syria. The US government, and media, keep calling them ‘moderate rebels’, but they are not. They were never moderate, and many are not rebels. By definition, a ‘rebel’ is rebelling against their own government. However, many of the US backed ‘rebels’ are not Syrian, and have no family ties to Syria, and have never been a citizen of Syria. For example, how could a Chinese citizen fight in a rebellion against the American government? By what right does a Chinese citizen have to kill and maim in order to change the US government? It is wrong and makes no sense.
I would never advocate, or support any armed attack, or rebellion against the American government. There are laws against murdering, raping, kidnapping and maiming people in USA. The same such laws exist in Syria. How could a democracy and a world leader like USA advocate murdering, raping, kidnapping and maiming innocent Syrian people?..
