  1. #NoWarWithSyria twitterstorm No to U.S. Bombing of Syria
  2.  
  3. Barack Obama is selling the planned US Cruise missile bombing of Syria as a “humanitarian” act in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.
Bombing Syria will kill more civilians, polarize the situation further, and invite even more intervention and weapons into the country, making it more likely that the civil war could expand into an extremely dangerous regional conflagration. Moreover, launching an attack on a country that isn’t threatening yours is the supreme international war crime. 


  4. This planned U.S. airstrike on Syrian is already unpopular, but that doesn’t mean Obama won’t do it.
Obama is now amping up his argument, hoping for Congressional approval for his planned attack in an effort to make this war crime seem more legitimate. But the Obama administration says even if Congress doesn’t endorse his plans, he won’t be bound by their vote. People in this country have to get visibly and loudly into the streets in protest; on the airwaves, on the Internet, and everywhere, to denounce this coming attack.
No, not in our name! Humanity and the planet come first. No to U.S. planetary domination.

  6. Objective of twitterstorm: To spread the message that the bombing of Syria is not a “humanitarian” act and is wrong regardless of what Congress says and to amplify this Saturday’s protest and mobilize people to join in.
