No US attack on Syria

When: Saturday, September 7, 2013, 10:00 am
Where: Park St. T station Entrance • Park & Tremont Streets • Boston

A US attack on Syria would be a dangerous escalation of the Syrian conflict and only create more destruction and loss of life.   US military intervention could possibly spiral into a major regional war including US forces.  Only a cease fire leading to political talks among Syrians will resolve the crisis; more violence simply makes things worse and a political solution more difficult.
