Expressing condolences to all people who are suffering and mourning the results of organized deadly violence, from Paris and Beirut to Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.

Boco Harem is also just as deadly as ISIS, there have been attacks on Yemen, the people of Palestine, and we sit back and do little to nothing. It isn't lost on don't let our Government push us into more and more wars.

Remember, every war we've been in seems to make matters worse, not better. Support where we can but do not let the Hawks push us once more into war. We are weakening our own Country but putting our treasure into bombs.

Look around, USA, your cities crumble into dust, schools are a mess, violence is everywhere on your streets by the disenfranchised, the hopeless, the angry, those who can't get mental health treatment, take care of the old, the sick, the children and think things through. We weaken and make us less safe by the policies we keep following that create more messes.

Improve upon things, send humanitarian aid, medical, educational help, improve our intelligence to help others but I'm so sick of "certain" events a lead in to war.

Well said Dandelion...we all know the War Machine was geared up to push for war the minute they heard about Paris...what about Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Africa...we will now be put trillions of more dollars in the hole, but nothing to fix our own country.

Got that one Sheila, all over the TV, our troops are ready, the WANT to go to war. No one wants to go to war, why don't these talking heads go to war then if they are so eager. Will they be sending their sons and daughters? Been watching Fox just to listen to what they are saying.......Obama is weak, doesn't know what he's talking about war, war, war, we need to go to war.

The Republicans from many States before the dust settled go to war. Look I'm very empathetic to the people of France, let them make their choices first and see what they do. We can have their back in other ways but our sons and daughters are war weary from too many battles now; being deployed over and over again and so too is the poor and middle class.

Who invited us to be the worlds Police? The Greedy Heartless Ones that make money off of continuous war. But it's only selective wars, as I said, Boco Harem is just as terrible but little do we hear about them since that one episode of the girls being taken from the school. But that is only one of the many awful things they are and have done, they haven't gone away. Is why some of the people are leaving Africa, getting away from the mad men there.

So why do we get pushed into one area and not another, We will go there or where-ever when the Greedy Heartless Ones want something for going in. The poor and Middle Class will get to pay, pay with a loss of their children, pay with the lowering of their standard of living, we pay, over and over again. We got into a mess in Vietnam, look at Libya now, we couldn't learn from the Russians so look at what we have in Afghanistan also Iraq which opened the doors to what is here now......Saddam might not of been a nice man but he kept a lid on it.

I am humanity, the innocent men, women and children who once drew breath but no more because of the deadly violence perpetrated against them for no reason. I will not hate the violent ones, but I will pity them that they know no love, mercy or compassion. Theirs is a pathetic existence.

Thanks and signed. Anyone who says we need more war doesn't really even care about these innocent victims in Paris (let alone victims in the ME). ISIS itself is the result of misguided war. Somehow this insanity must stop.

Thanks Dandelion for posting !

It sounds almost as a curse of mankind, that we not only don't appreciate all the beauty and gifts which Mother Earth gave us free .... no, we also don't appreciate what we create itself !
I know of no other creature on this planet who destroys itself and own homes & habitats !!!

" Our earth needs finally peace and healing !"

Thank you for saying: We are all France. Why aren't we all Lebanon or Syria or Iraq? I am. Also in memory of the more than 105 dead and 250 injured in Buenos Aires. (1992-1994) One of the first terrorist attack of its kind in the world. Memory!

Thanks for posting this petition Dandelion. The middle east is in utter chaos and terrorist organizations are rampant throughout the entire region. When George W. Bush stood on the flight deck of that carrier and boldly declared "Mission Accomplished" I don't believe we expected this result. But here we are. And the situation is so complicated that it seems to be unsolvable. I believe it's up to the people of these regions to some how unite and align to bring order into this horrific situation. The U.S. cannot redeploy more military personnel without implementing a solid plan for a unified government to restore order.

Thank you Pablo for reminding of or for those who didn't know, bringing it to our attention. Unfortunately many in the past have suffered from terrorist attacks, as one with Native Heritage many from the various First Nations all feel the same way.

Unfortunately this is a war that will be fought,the world realises that Deash must be destroyed but if we had reacted earlier to the warning signs from disenfranchised youths all over the western world and if Bush and company hadn't invaded Iraque this could have been contained without getting into WWIII mode.
