Peace Action responds to Obama’s ISIL plan

congressIn response to President Obama’s speech on dealing with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Peace Action, the largest peace group in the U.S. made the following statements.

“We agree with the president that there is no military solution to the problems posed by ISIL. And yet his proposed strategy relies far too heavily on the use of military force. It’s time to stop the bombing and escalation and use the other tools of U.S. foreign policy — working with allies in cutting off weapons, oil and funding streams for starters — which will be much more active in dealing with ISIL,” said Kevin Martin, Peace Action’s executive director.

“True international support to deal with ISIL requires UN action and regional diplomacy,” observed Paul Kawika Martin, the political director of peace action.

“History shows that US arms tends to fall into the wrong hands like in Afghanistan and now ISIL.  More weapons in the mideast is not the solution and is more like pouring fuel on a fire,” concluded Paul Martin.
