Declaring Syria Regime Illegitimate Sends Strong Human Rights Message and Exposes Lenders

Over the last year, a religious antipoverty organization has met with U.S. Treasury and White House officials to encourage them to declare the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad an illegitimate government. This action would impose restrictions on lending to Syria that supports its military or the needs of the Assad regime.

Types of lending and financing that could be affected are arms contracts with Russia and oil investment from Iran.

The Next 50 Presidents

We have a great nation, a great history, and ever evolving culture and society, and we inspire many to seek freer lives for themselves, their loved ones, their communities and their countrymen.  We aren't perfect, but our constitution allows us to evolve with the times, and the forefathers of our great nation saw that we would need flexibility in order to adapt to the world as its revolutions around the sun brought something new each day.  They saw this, and were people ahead of their time by doing so and keeping one foot oriented towards what was coming next always.
