Last week we launched an activist campaign urging our readers to call their congressional representatives and demand a vote on the presence of US troops in Syria. The Obama administration's decision to send American Special Forces to that volatile region not only marks an escalation of our "regime change" operation, it also poses a threat of military conflict with Russia.

Is our "humanitarian" intervention over there really worth risking World War III?

Sending troops to a war zone without a congressional vote is unconstitutional, as well as dangerous. That's why our campaign is so important – but we can't continue to do it without your active support. So please, call your congressional representative and tell them we need to stay out of Syria – and make your tax-deductible donation to today.

Please make your tax-deductible donation today.
