Special Note: Later today we will begin circulating a petition to our local Members of Congress to vote no on authorization for the use of military force in Syria. Please watch for it and help spread the word. Meanwhile, we urge you to read this excellent piece, Optimism and Fear, by Phyllis Bennis. Also, Reps. Anna Eshoo and Zoe Lofgren have released a joint statement that raises some excellent questions about the Administration's request for authorization.

Join us for a free forum tonight!

I phoned up and stated, if the U.S. and allied forces go in on the ground to attack, the Russians are going to be very upset, and that could lead to a major war.

Man’s inhumanity to man shows again that mankind can’t run its own affairs. Pray for the innocent who are suffering!
