Following a meeting in Melbourne Australia of "Australians for Reconciliation in Syria" (AMRIS) today, 3 September 2015, spokesperson David Macilwain said that AMRIS unequivocally condemns atrocities committed by 'Islamic State' in Syria.

AMRIS deplores, however, the decision by the Australian Government to follow the lead of the United States in taking military action against IS within the borders of Syria, one of the founding members of the United Nations, without the consent of the Syrian Government.

Mr Macilwain said, "Such action will do little to 'degrade and destroyí the terrorist group, whose control over territory has only continued to increase despite a year of US Coalition airstrikes. Furthermore there have been significant civilian casualties and damage as a result of those airstrikes, leading to further refugee flows."

We should all deplore the idea Australia bombing Syria. Non-participating citizens would certainly be killed by Australian bombs in Syria, just as the bombs being dropped, to no avail it seems, are killing civilians now in the Middle East. ISIS is getting stronger than ever.

Also, hasn't it sunk into Abbott's thick skull that, every time we become involved in a conflict that really has nothing to do with us, we get a flood of invaders in hired boats from the countries we are 'helping'? It started with Vietnam, which we helped America LOSE, and it has continued since. The current cessation in arrivals will last only as long as the Coalition government does. When Labor gets back in, the invasion of illegals will start again.

I deplore the idea of anyone bombing Syria, not that it matters much anymore.
This whole thing is a proxy war to remove Assad and I wont be fooled by the Wests ulterior motives.
I also oppose attacking ISIS in Syria without Assad's approval and oversight.

Syria is one more issue on which Australian Nationalists and the True Left should be in agreement and showing solidarity, if we want an end to Saudi led Sunni imperialism and a return home by the refugees from Europe or even if you favour liberal,multicultural, pluralistic societies across the middle east Assad is the example and his style of government the only hope. The median IQ level across the region is drastically lower than that in the West or in North Asia, around 80 points, the only way to hold societies full of dumb people together and stop them from killing each other is with dictatorship, secret police, capital punishment and zero tolerance policing.
Both Left and Nationalist have to accept that ISIS is the real Sunni Islam, it's Islam as it's been practiced for the entirety of the movement's existence, the fact that Abbott and Shorten are too cowardly to even pronounce it's name in English doesn't change that fact. Reinstate the Shia and Alawite dictatorships, arm Assad, Al Sadr and Hezbollah and carpet bomb the ISIS strongholds until nothing is left alive, then the reconciliation and disarmamanet process in Syria can begin and the "Balkanisation" of those counties can be implemented so this can't happen again.

Family of drowned toddler Aylan Kurdi had been given FREE housing in Turkey, while fatherís story is full of holes.
"Abdullah Kurdiís story is made-up. But his lies are now being used and rewarded by the media in full blown propaganda, while pressuring policies to force Europe to take in more economic migrants who have never experienced a war zone.
Abdullah was never on that boat to watch his wife and children drown. Thatís why he was the only survivor. The first time he learned of their death was from the hospital after the photos of his young son was circulating in the media. Listen to all the contradictions and holes in his story.
This was an attempt to send his wife and children into Europe before his own arrival to apply for refugee status as a lone woman with children, while they never even lived in a war zone."
