The White House and Pentagon are preparing a cruise missile attack on Syria. Failing to receive international support for these plans, and in the face of overwhelming opposition from the US public, the Obama Administration is now turning to Congress for cover in the form of a resolution authorizing the use of military force. When Congress returns to DC next week, on September 9, their votes will determine whether and how a war on Syria may begin. This week, while they are in their home districts across the country, politicians need to hear from their constituents. Now is the time to mobilize, and pressure Congress to vote NO WAR ON SYRIA.
