DALLAS (KRLD) – About a dozen people gathered outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building in Dallas to protest the President’s decision to send 300 military advisers to Iraq.

They carried signs with messages “War Is Not the Answer” and urged people to “Honk for Peace”.

Those at the protest said they did not want to see President Obama repeating the policies of President George W. Bush.

State Rep. Lon Burnam says it should be up to Iraq to deal with the growing insurgency.

“It’s an internal issue that was exasperated because we dealt with the peace incorrectly in first place,” he said.

He’s worried that the initial deployment of military advisors will lead to more U-S troops. “We have no obligation to bomb their citizens,” he said.

The President has not authorized any direct military action. The mission of the 300 special operations forces will be to assist Iraqi security forces.
