Defeat Assad and ensure his regime is not replaced by something as bad or worse

Our ultimate goal in Syria is to defeat ISIS and to achieve long-term political stability in that country.

Defeating ISIS requires defeating Assad, whose war against his own people – backed by Iran – has left nearly 300,000 people dead and spurred a massive refugee crisis.

We cannot repeat President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s mistake in Libya, and must ensure Assad’s regime is not replaced by something as bad or worse.

A coordinated, international effort is essential to give Syria’s moderate forces the upper hand against both ISIS and Assad.
