Tell Obama, Congress & the Media: Listen to the People -- No War with Syria!
The public – both in the U.S. and abroad – overwhelmingly opposes U.S. bombing of Syria. Yet both President Obama and the media are working overtime to manufacture approval for a war that most of us reject.
On Tuesday night, Obama will go on national TV and do as so many Presidents have before him – advocate bombing another country to "save" it. Like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Colin Powell, he will string together a series of half-truths and outright lies to justify war.
We reject this latest war and the media campaign used to promote it. Join us Tuesday at Tribune Tower, 435 N. Michigan, for Obama's speech, when we'll march to local media outlets to deliver a rebuttal from the American people to the press, the President and Congress: We won't be hustled again -- No war with Syria!
