162 Members of Congress Demand to be Called into Session, Another Assault on Arab World Risks Escalation and Backlash, U.S. Tried to Derail U.N. Probe

Robert Naiman, Seumas Milne, Gareth Porter
Momentum builds against rush to war against Syria and further escalation in the Mideast. 162 members of Congress send letter to Obama demanding that Congress be called back into session, for full debate and congressional vote before any new war is launched. Western intervention will only spread the killing, which is gravest threat to the people of Iraq. New evidence that U.S. derailed UN probe.

Roundtable on the Syrian Crisis

Campaign for Peace and Democracy
The symposium contributions were written before a large-scale poison gas attack with many casualties in the rebel-controlled Ghouta suburbs of Damascus on August 21, 2013. Likewise, they were all written before Washington's deployment of military forces to the region and its virtual announcement that military action is forthcoming. We strongly oppose military intervention by the United States and its allies.
