We Prevented a U.S. Attack on Syria, Now We Must Stop the CIA from Arming the War

By davidswanson - Posted on 02 September 2013

UPDATE: Now let's stop "lethal aid" to Syria.

Tell Congress and the president not to attack Syria. Call them for free at 1-855-68 NO WAR or 1-855-686-6927. See where your representative and senators stand on whip list. Find events to take part in here. Listen: Rep. Alan Grayson on Syria  Read: This War Too Is A Lie    The Other Super Power Is Winning   The Bill Congress Should Pass Instead of War  Caveman Credibility and its Costs  Lying About Syria and the Lying Liars Who Lie About the Lying  Opposition to Iraq War May Save Syria  Cruise Missile Law Enforcement   Who the Missiles Will Hurt   Congressional Progressive/Pentagon Caucus   A Modest Proposal for Syria   You can shout "Support the troops!" but the troops don't want this war. More articles here.  Flyers you can use to oppose this war: Color PDF, Black and White PDF.  Watch a video of a local forum on preventing this attack; try this at home!  "I pledge that I will not vote to reelect any member of Congress who votes for the Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Syria."

People can tell President Obama and their Congresspeople what they would do with the 'war chest' instead for America, since there

seems to be plenty.
